Transcript

  • 1. HOW TO GET COPYRIGHT-FREE IMAGES FOR YOUR BLOG (C) 2013 HORIZON PEAK CONSULTING
  • 2. THE BENEFIT OF USING IMAGES Include an image on EVERY blog post! Images… • Make your blog more shareable • Improve your blog traffic (C) 2013 HORIZON PEAK CONSULTING
  • 3. RISKY BUSINESS Using copyrighted images is illegal. Technology has improved – you WILL get caught. Copyright violators are subject to steep fines. Don’t use images you don’t own or have a license to use. Just don’t do it. (C) 2013 HORIZON PEAK CONSULTING
  • 4. THREE WAYS TO GET IMAGES There are three easy ways to get images for your blog: • Buy them • Take them yourself • Capitalize on generous offers of free images around the web (C) 2013 HORIZON PEAK CONSULTING
  • 5. BUYING IMAGES (C) 2013 HORIZON PEAK CONSULTING
  • 6. BUYING IMAGES Contrary to popular belief, buying stock imagery is not that expensive. You can buy the smallest image size – which is always the cheapest, and still looks great on a blog. We personally like Veer for buying images piecemeal, and iStockPhoto for buying them in bulk. (C) 2013 HORIZON PEAK CONSULTING
  • 7. TAKING YOUR OWN PHOTOS (C) 2013 HORIZON PEAK CONSULTING
  • 8. TAKING YOUR OWN PHOTOS You don’t need fancy equipment to take great photos anymore. Use your cell-phone or point-and-shoot camera to take photos of your products, your workplace or aesthetically-appealing items around your office. Just make sure you’ve got good lighting. Natural light is best, of course. But if you must take photos indoors, aim more than one lamp at your subject to get more even lighting and eliminate shadows. (C) 2013 HORIZON PEAK CONSULTING
  • 9. GETTING FREE IMAGES (C) 2013 HORIZON PEAK CONSULTING
  • 10. GETTING FREE IMAGES Many stock image sites have freebies you can take advantage of. • • • • Creative Market gives out free images, backgrounds and fonts on a weekly basis. You just need to sign up for their email list to get notified. Recently GraphicStock ran a promotion where you got 7 days of free downloads simply by creating an account. As of this posting, that deal is still going on. iStockPhoto has a free photo of the week, every week. You just have to check their site weekly to download it. The ever-generous HubSpot has a ton of photos you can download for free. Just sign up for their mailing list on their landing page and you’ll get instant access. (C) 2013 HORIZON PEAK CONSULTING
