As a blogger, we know the importance of images in blog posts. Some kind of blog posts can’t be completed without related images.
Many bloggers just fulfill images needs from Google Image Search but thats not good as it can make them face copyright claim on the blog which is not good for any blogger. For that, experienced bloggers suggest Stock Photography.
Stock Photography is the “thing”(use correct word) which widely used and suggested. If you haven’t any idea about Stock Photography, read what Wikipedia says about it.
Stock photography is the supply of photographs, which are often licensed for specific uses.
As you might understand that stock photo will help to fulfill needs of photos but kindly understand that there are two types of stock photos available on the internet. Paid and Free.
Some paid stock photography companies are listed below.
- Stock fresh
These are the companies which sell high-quality stock photos at low prices. You can buy the stock photos and use it on your blogs or projects, but still, there will be few rules you will need to follow.
These stock photos are available on Google Image Search with watermarks, but those are not suggested to use.
But there are few stock photography website which provides stock photos at free of costs. So let’s take a look at those helpful websites.
