    Apart from quality content it is important that we must take care of the presentation of article too. To enhance any article presentation the best way is to add a relevant image to the article because images do says much more than words. You might have noticed that we use images with all the articles in our blog to make articles more attractive. There are many images available online but it is important that you take care of copyright issues of images, you can only add images which are not copyrighted and free to use in blogs.

    As a blogger i know it is necessary to insert qulaity images in articles aprt from flickr all are new to me. thanks for sharing



    Yeah Vivek, images are best way to present article in good way. Try others apart from Flickr and do share your views.



    I myself enjoy with Bing right now. But sometimes for
    higher image quality, I rush to Fickr only.



    I haven’t used Bing yet for free images. Thanks for sharing your views Vuong.

    Thanks for the intro, at least now I know where to find stock photos. The only place on the list I know is Flickr.

    For tutorials, theme reviews etc, i take my own screenshots otherwise only use Google Images.



    While writing reviews and themes its always good to use screenshots, it shows that reviews are written after trying the tool or product. Thanks for comment Yousuf.



    I do not know any of these sites except flickr thanks for sharing. I have used http://www.pdphoto.org/ for royalty free photos.


    Pankaj Sharma

    Thanks a lot for sharing this.I was aware of Flickr but others are new to me.Keep providing good content.I would like to add http://www.istockphoto.com/ in this list.This site also provide great images.



    Thanks for feedback about iStockPhoto Pankaj, I tried it but I find it time consuming to search free relevant images or it might be that I find websites like Flickr more easy to navigate.



    Nice list. I have some success with FreePhoto.com and Stock.xchng. Sometimes I give up and create my own on Photoshop. That is a desperate move, though.



    Creating your own photoshop image always gives a personal touch to the articles. Its nice habit Jacqui.

    I like Flickr & at times use images under Creative Commons. Others are new to me.



    Hey nice Ruchi, post i have one query that i always use Google for images but as you said copyright issue what bad it can cause to my blog??

    n one more thing ruchi also my sister’s name

    Are you sure flickr is free. Because I heard getty image sueing some people who used flickr pictures.


    James M

    The site I use the most is http://www.veezzle.com, which is actually more like a search engine for any free images on the web. It searches Flickr, morguefile, rbgstock, and more. A search will land you plenty of results if you use broad terms.


    Jack Harold

    Well done man! I have always been trying to find time to search for websites that will provide free images other than Google Images. This is a god damn AWESOME post!



    Great post. I think there are a few more out there. but it would be great if we all got our images from different places. This would be better for our readers too.
