Looking for FREE Photos for your Blog?
Google Image Search WARNING!
Don’t be fooled by Google’s image search; just because they show the photo doesn’t mean you can use it. In fact, a client of ours searched for Free Valentines Day photos, and the Google Image search brought up a nice photo of wine glasses. About 6 months later, the client received a letter in the mail requiring a payment of over $1000 for use of the photo.
The above images can be found on our Saratoga.com blogs: horse image and High Rock Park sign
In fact, I don’t recommend even searching for free photos at all. As free photos are not truly free, they require a back link and credit to the photographer or company where you found the photos. So rather than kill yourself trying to find a free photo, find a great site that offers cheap photos like $1.50 per picture. In fact, whenever possible try to get a real photo taken as people relate to real images from your business or experience much more than a stock photo.
If you still want free pictures for your blog, you’ll find the best list of websites for free and cheap photos here.
