Updated on March 18, 2015

There is no doubt about when we add relevant and attractive images to our sites, we can get more number of visitors. In the Internet we can find millions of beautiful images. But, we can not use all of them for free as most of them are found to be copyrighted ones.

In this Hub I like to share with all of you some sites where we can get free public domain photos that can be used in our sites for free. For instance, if we want to write about vegetarianism, we may need some beautiful photos of vegetables to post in our sites. The same way we can find any relevant images for our favorite subjects browsing these sites.

This is a free photo sharing site powered by Google where we can get royalty free photos to add in our sites. To get relevant images we just need to enter the keywords in the search box that found on the site. Even you will be able to get high quality images on different categories. If you sign in here with your Google account, you can also see all of your already used images in your blogger account.
