You’ve got a great idea for a blog/social media post but need an image that will really compliment and quickly summarise all the juicy information in your post.

An image that stands out and helps tell the story of your post.

But WHERE can you find websites to download free images that don’t cost an arm and a leg?

Good question!

There are websites where you can download free images – yes, free – no catches.

Did you know that social media posts and blog posts are much more likely to be shared if there’s an image attached?

TIP: don’t use Google images as many of the images are copyrighted – I’m sure getting sued isn’t on your agenda!

So if you’re looking for free images, check out this list … I use these image websites all the time and always find an image that works perfectly for me. I’m sure you will too.

If I can’t find that perfect image then I use sites such as DreamstimeDepositphotos and Shutterstock,  that offer a LOT of downloadable images that aren’t actually all that expensive – check them out as well.

Have I missed one of the sites where you download free images?
