Recruiters! Do you get frustrated when you are limited by the images that you can use when posting blogs and job adverts? Are you worried about being sued for using licenced images?

If you have seen my infographic on Slideshare then you will know that the brain processes images 60,000 times faster than text and that last year, the number of images on the platform jumped by 53%! What is more, Tweets with images receive 89% more favourites and 150% more retweets whilst Facebook posts with images receive 87% of total interaction.

We are also rolling out some great training for recruiters to pump up the volume on their adverts.

Thus, finding images that are royalty free is very important as images are critical to your social success.

Don’t Get Sued – Get Seen

Copyright law is stricter than ever right now despite the internet making images and ideas more accessible than ever before! Software exists to scan the web, look for images which are being used illegally – no-one is safe!

Creative Commons attempts to get around this as it allows people to grant access for the use of content, both for private and commercial use.

Here are a few sites with images for business use, which we at Barclay Jones use all the time:

▶ Creative Commons

▶ MorgueFile

▶ Pixabay

▶ FreeImages

▶ Iconfinder

▶ Iconspedia

(Be sure to still check the license though, and make sure you are being good boys and girls)

For a better look at these 6 free image sites, check out the Slidedeck below and follow our Slideshare account!
