A complete list of the 36 best sites to get free images for your blog. Site name, site link, site description, and a screen shot of the site. Makes it easy to find the site or sites that you will want to favorite when you need to find images for your blog.

"Only one thing is impossible for God: To find any sense in any copyright law on the planet." ~ Mark Twain

If you are like me the Copyright laws are confusing especially when it comes to finding images to share on your blog and social media.

If are like me you are not a big fan of spending $1-$5 every time you write a blog post or do a status update.

This presentation will help you with both.

While there is no such thing as a "free lunch" or "free images" these 36 sites will help you find Legal Images. Some of them were donated by the photographer. Some of them are paid for by advertising, some of them the author just wants credit for their work. No matter what none of them will require you to use a credit card.

36 Best Sites to get Free Images For Your Blog

  1. 1. BEST SITES FOR FREE BLOG IMAGE S By Jason Fox | www.JasonFox.me
  2. 2. ONLY ONE THING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD: TO FIND ANY SENSE IN ANY COPYRIGHT LAW ON THE PLANET. ~ MARK TWAIN
  3. 3. You can not use an image you find on google images on your website or blog! If you do… there is a chance that someone will sue you. If they sue you it will be for way more money than you feel that they deserve and there is a good chance they will win. It is called copyright infringement and it is serious business. Also be careful of my headline; free images for your blog. As they say, “there is no such thing as a free lunch”. No images are truly free. You either pay in your own time to take them, money and buy them, or you have to give credit to the creator of the image. It might be better to call these legal images.
  4. 4. This list contains links to sites from which you do not need to pay money, or time, but you do need to pay homeage. You do this by either mentioning the creators name or adding a link on your site to the creator, called attribution. It depends on what the creator wants and should be disclosed on each site. Some sites are monetized through advertising and do not require any links or mentions. Most of these sites rely on a set of rules called the “creative commons“.
  5. 5. (IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER) 1. WIKIMEDIA COMMONS HTTP://COMMONS.WIKIMEDIA.ORG/WIKI/MAIN_PAGE THE WIKIPEDIA FOR MEDIA. 2.
