Images for Blogs, Websites... Everything!
They say a pictures is worth a thousand words, and when it comes to websites, blogs, etc, this is certainly true! A website or blog without images is just plain boring! I don't know about you, but I'm less likely to read through a page or article that is lacking imagery. Images help tell the story, they help attract the reader and engage them. The right images can make a site!
There are a number of places you can source images online, but for me the starting point is always the same: unsplash.com
Why? Because all images on Unsplash are free to use without restriction and are license free. In fact, to quote the license agreement on the Unsplash website:
Unsplash grants you an irrevocable, nonexclusive, worldwide copyright license to download, copy, modify, distribute, perform, and use photos from Unsplash for free, including for commercial purposes, without permission from or attributing the photographer or Unsplash. This license does not include the right to compile photos from Unsplash to replicate a similar or competing service.
That's hard to beat!
Crediting the photographer is not a requirement, but it is nice to do if you can. They make that pretty easy with a simple copy and paste on download. But, it's completely up to you!
So, if you're looking for images to spice up your next article or web page, head to unsplash.com!
