free stock photos
"How to get totally free stock photos?"Stock photos are essential for any website. You always need them in order to illustrate your pages so that they look more attractive and alluring. Also, pages with beautiful images increase the overall visibility of the page. Using images without permission or infringing on the copyright of images is just like stealing someone’s work and it can get you in legal trouble. Most people wouldn’t agree with this argument, but still this is true that one can sue you if you’re using their images without a copyright license. But the question is, once again, how do you get stock photos?
Use CreativeCommons Images
Under this license, you can use an image on your website, but it’s not true for all online images. It’s only applicable to those images which are shared under a CreativeCommons License.
Also, mostly CreativeCommons license demands that you also credit their work by posting a link back to the image. In other means, you cannot use someone’s work without a link back to where the actual image is placed.
Buy Stock Photo Images
Another straight forward method is to buy stock photos. But as I mentioned earlier, if you are a small entrepreneur, it would be hard to buy lots of images when you have just started your business.
The prices of these stock photos usually start from $2 an image and usually you will need to add at least 2-3 images on each page of your website. This money can add up fast!
So How Can I Get Totally Free Stock Photos?
Well, I have a proven method with which you can download and use stock photos totally for free. And the best part is that you can use them legally.
