Where Do Writers Get Free Stock Photo Images For Their Website Articles - Learn Here
Free Pic I Downloaded
Have you ever wondered where other bloggers are getting those awesome photos for their articles? Those gorgeous, professionally shot, photographs that line the pages of so many great blogs?
I used to think that writers that posted such great pictures were: 1) photography professionals or 2) were out there spending huge sums of money on photographs. The first idea is plausible until you read enough articles to realize that a huge amount of them have such perfect photographs. I love all the talent that writers bring to the web, but I couldn't believe that so many were such accomplished photographers as well.
The second idea, that internet writers are buying the pictures, is also very possible but unlikely on a huge scale, at least among bloggers.. If you have ever blogged in hope of earning Adsense revenue, you'll quickly realize that spending any amount on a picture, $.50, $1, $5, $10 could offset any profit you make on the article for a long time, maybe forever.
There are great photo sharing sites where you can get great photos for your blog at no cost.
Where Do I Find A Free Stock Photo Site?
Simply, earch the internet using terms like "photo sharing" "free photos" etc. You'll come across plenty of sites. Some will charge you, some will not. There are plenty out there that offer free photos.
Can You Recommend a Free Photo Site ?
IMPORTANT EDITORIAL NOTE AS OF 10/12/12..... OK... I loved this site for a long time. Lots of great pics. In recent months though I noticed they basically force you to download a photo saver or some nonsense which creates a bunch of spam in your email, defaults your web browser to another one, etc etc.
I admit... I'm sometimes wrong in these observations. Someone from the site noted below might argue that all I had to do was click a "Refuse Download Just Get Free Pictures" button or something like that, but I don't see it.
As an intellligent, informed reader, please let me know if you know anything different. Maybe I'm being too critical.
Anyway.... I left the original post intact below. Keep reading if you'd like. Keep in mind there might be some issues I mentioned above.
Okay... Can You Tell Me What it is?
Oh! Sure! Before I do so, I'll just as one favor.... if you have a favorite site, that you actually use and have tried out yourself, please tell us about in the comments below. I'm sure others have tested sites or have written great articles on the topic of free pics as well.
Only reason I suggest this is, with my luck, all of us on HubPages, over the course of geological time, will eventually have the same pictures if we all focus on the same photo site. Let's break it up a bit. Plus I'd love to learn about any article you may have done on the topic and try different sites.

Free Digital Photos Website
I started using a site called FreeDIgitalPhotos.net for free pictures. I love it so far. The pictures are great and you can find just about any picture for any subject.
The pictures I use in this article are all from FreeDigitalPhotos.net. They are completely free.
What Does it Cost?
It's actually not a dumb question. Yes, FreeDigitalPhotos.net is free but you can also pay for larger, premium photos.
For the free photos, a big requirement is that you are obligated to give a couple of credits to the photographer and the website. This is super easy to do here on HubPages and a lot of other sites you might write for as well.

What Else is Cool About this Site ?
One thing I love about FreeDigitalPhotos.net is that registration is optional. That's right. You don't have to sign up. It is basically queue up the site and go. Signing up does have additional benefits such as your viewing history, photo sharing, and organizing photos.
I have not explored signing up yet. I just use the photos. I also have not paid a dime.
Also... I've experienced no download issues, viruses, security alerts anything.

How Do I Use FreeDigitalPhotos.Net
It is pretty self-explanatory when you use the site so I won't bore you much with detail but since I have to download pics from this site to make this article, I'll run through the steps.
There are a number of ways to get your pics from this site, I stick to just one of the ways. Basically 1) No sign up 2) Download to my PC 3) Upload to my site 4) Credit the publisher and website 5) Gloat at the awesome phot.
Here is a real basic overview of the steps to download a picture:
Go to FreeDigitalPhoto.Net
Sign up if you'd like or don't. Up to you.
In the search box, type in what kind of photo you are looking for or browse the subjects related to the photo you want
I save it to my computer then upload it to my article (there might be a better way to do this, but it is how I roll with it :-)
Then go back and click on Acknowledgement Required. The site will tell you exactly how to give credit. It is very easy.
I Hope That Helps
As I mentioned, feel free to comment on other sites where you can find great photos for free.
I hope this article helps. Thanks for stopping by!
