    Hi there, friends! In the course of my work this morning, I came across a great article that I thought might be useful to a lot of Hubbers: 53+ Free Image Sources For Your Blog and Social Media Posts.

    The blog post is geared toward image use on social media, but the free, legal-use sites listed are also great sources for writers and bloggers like us. Happy Hubbing!

      Thanks for the link. But anyone using free images should still take the time to verify whether or not the images posted at some of those sites are really in the public domain or created by the person giving the permission. I operated my own website for a few years and found out some of those sites actually steal graphics which they have no right to use.

        Great point, sheilamyers. It's always a good idea to double check.

    A worthy link indeed. I added it to my bookmark website as well.

    And besides. I like anyone who pets dogs and is "perky". big_smile

      Btw, I was talking about the author of that page, not Christy. As for Christy; I, too, lived in Long Beach and enjoy science fiction.

    This is what I need. Free images that could help anyone working online. I guess I need to say thank you for sharing your link.

    Cool list of sources. I can vouch for the "Freedigitalphotos" site mentioned in this piece, I've used stuff from them a number of times. Will have to check out some of the others when I get a chance.

    Thank you for the wonderful article!  I as well have had issues finding free images that were necessary for me to incorporate in my article.  I will certainly utilize these sites!

    Yes, very helpful!

    How come we have to be 50+ to be allowed to use these links? That really kind of discriminates against our younger writers.

      I was thinking the same thing, paradigm. But since I am over 50 by quite a bit I wasn't going to complain about it.
