This will be a fairly short but to the point blog post. From covers to teasers, social media branding and blog images, there is one thing in common. They all need photos. The issue? With copyright laws and royalties images can’t be taken from just anywhere. You need royalty free stock photos, which in most cases can get pretty expensive.
Well I’m happy to report that I’ve decided to share one of my best kept secrets with you. I’m going to share my resource list of free stock images. Most of them are free, some of them have a few limitations (by giving them credit, or reading the licensing agreement to make sure you’re using it appropriately.) Lastly there are three sites with free trials.
I hope you find this list as helpful as I have.
