Where do you get pictures to put on article pages?

Hello,

My name is Dan, I'am a new member of AffiloBlueprint and started building my first website. Now, my question is where do you get your pictures from? I mean all those quality pictures we can see on enlightenmentgateway.com for example.

I am interested in pictures that can be posted on my website without having problems with copyright infringement.

Thank you!

Hi Dan,

If you do a Google search for "free stock images" you'll stumble upon a bunch of sites where you can use the images for free.

Other times you can pay a few dollars for a higher quality image.

http://www.istockphoto.com (watch out, they like to slip in expensive ones too... you should look at photos that are 1 - 2 credits)

http://www.photodune.com is another good one.

https://creativemarket.com/photos is one I've been using lately. Not such a wide selection, but you can get MASSIVE pictures for cheap.

You're looking for "royalty free" stock images. Ignore any that are "rights managed" -- those ones you need to pay an ongoing subscription to use.

I use dreamtime photo, they have some good free pictures and for the most part some of the cheapest photos to buy. I have seen photos on I stock where the people want over 50 bucks for one picture where you can get something from dreamtime for as little as 3 and you can also get the same picture in different sizes but the bigger the picture the more money but still a lot less then most of the other places.

If you're on a really tight budget then microsoft clipart and images are okay and all royalty-free

I've found that Pixabay (http://pixabay.com/) has a nice selection of free images (200 000+), along with a few sponsored images from Shutterstock that probably help pay for the running of the site. And unlike most sites with free images, you don't even need to include an attribution or link to their site anywhere.

From where ever you get pictures that are free you really need to look over there terms because often it may say royalty free but you are still required to pay to use the picture. I have seen this on many free sites and never understand it since they say free but I read an article some where explaining they whys but I can't remember what they were. Just check things out to be safe.

The difference is between "royalty free" and "free".

The default payment for works of art like photos is royalty payments, which means you pay for every use of the photo, every printing of the book, or every play of the song. Royalty free means you pay a one-time fee and you can use the photo or other work of art any way you wish, within the terms of the agreement, which of course you do have to check.

Free images that you don't have to pay for at all are harder to find and may be lower quality. Also, in most cases, sites that offer free images require you to include an attribution to the photographer and/or website in their terms and conditions.

Personally I like crediting the creators of images, programs, and tools I use publicly, and often to do it even when I don't need to. The creators have obviously done work I like, or I wouldn't be using it, so I like to promote and endorse them to others.

Here's another good source to check out at: http://www.dollarphotoclub.com

Their images are pretty good quality, and you just can't beat them for 1 dollar!

If you don't want to pay anything at all, then you'll end up with low grade images and limited selection.

I use a very nice premium plugin that uses Google images and Flickr (I had to register for APIs for both of these). It does the searching for me using my selected keywords. It will also pick up videos from YouTube, find authority links for my keywords and even checks I've done all that's necessary for my on page SEO. It's certainly proved its value to me.

Regards,
