25 of the Best Places to Find Free Pretty Stock Photos

where-to-find-free-pretty-stock-photos

Stock photos have come a long way since the days of bland and uninspiring images. I love pretty images, especially when they’re free to use, and they’re super handy to have for round-up posts, tips and tricks or if you’re struggling with photography.

You’re probably aware that you cant go using any image off the internet due to copyright laws, not unless you’ve purchased the image or contacted the photographer to ask for permission to use it.

Taking your own high quality images can be time-consuming, especially in winter when there’s little natural light. So, with that in mind, I’m sharing my favourite sites for free stock photos. These sites offer images that are free for you to use on your blog or website.

How to use stock photos 

You can simply insert an image on your site, but chances are, many others will be using the same free image so I really recommend using an editing program, such as Photoshop or a free platform like Canva to add text, your logo and URL to personalise an image and help boost your blogs individuality.

Free stock photos are normally licensed under creative commons meaning you can alter the image and copy it without permission, however, you are not allowed to sell them.

If You’re Considering A Freelance Writing Career

 

During my little hiatus on this platform, I was busy beavering away on my other blog, Diary of a Freelancer. Unlike this site, Diary of a Freelancer is based around how to get started as a writer, building an online business and making a consistent income from your work.

After blogging for over 4 years (Yup, I missed my blogs birthday!) I’m now a full time copywriter, and one of the main questions I get asked is how I started freelance writing without beginning my career in a traditional way. The answer – Blogging!

I know a lot of bloggers want to become paid writers and start their own business. That’s why I’ve written an awesome 5 day email course called From Blogger to Freelancer. The best part, it’s completely FREE!

In this email course, you’ll receive 5 modules covering;

  • Using your blog content
  • Effective guest posting
  • Promoting your services
  • How to get paid work
  • Creating a portfolio

If you want to sign up for this FREE course, just grab it here!
