Everyone needs high quality images these days. Either for your website, Blog, Facebook account, Pinterest or Instagram accounts. In the old days of the Internet, people would just do a google search and just cut and paste whatever image they liked. They also would save an image from another site by right clicking on it, saving the image and hoping it was LEGAL. Yet a lot of times people got calls from Getty images asking for a hefty fine! They also could get a call or email from a lawyer stating they were using an image without permission.
USE PIXABAY OR UNSPLASH
Pixabay and Unslash are two sites that you can get high quality images that are CC0 Creative Commons. They are Free for commercial use and No attribution required.
SETTING UP A FREE ACCOUNT
You need to setup an account to make it an easier process, otherwise you will be faced with endless catcha screens. Much easier to setup a FREE account in order to download totally FREE High Quality images!
After you setup an account and login, you will then do a search to find the images you want. After finding an image, you simply click on it and it will open up a larger version of the image, in the right corner of image you can click on DOWNLOAD in order to download that image.
GIVING CREDIT FOR IMAGE IS NOT REQUIRED
It will also open up a box that says SAY THANKS.. Crediting isn’t required, but is appreciated and allows photographers to gain exposure. Copy the text below or embed a credit badge.
SO…. you can use these images on your website for Free and dont even need to give credit. You should give credit and I find some photographers have great work and you can use multiple images they have. So its only fair to at least give them a link. Yet unlike some other sites, your not required to give credit in order to use the images.
