As a blogger, I must have good stock photos on my websites! All of the bloggers use the stock photos for some reasons; however, some bloggers prefer to do their own photos, but they do watermark on them with their logos to protect their photos from the copyright infringement. Some bloggers choose to use the stock photos on their websites like I do. For the new bloggers, you want to find the stock photos for your websites, but you do not have money enough to buy some stock photos. You do not have to worry about that; there are more free stock photo resources.
Before You Read…
Before you read this below, I want to share something with you about Adobe stock. I’d strongly advise that you do not purchase the Adobe stock plan. I have a terrible experience about this; I loved Dollar Photo Club, as the price was very low for 10 stock photos plus $10 dollar monthly plan. It was such an excellent site. Unfortunately, Adobe stock won and migrated with the Dollar Photo Club down and replaced the site. I hated that! It costs me $29.95 with 10 free stock photos. When I used 10 free stock photos from Adobe stock on my websites, I already found that my 10 free stock photos were not available anymore. I tried to get one of the stock photos, but I discovered that each photo costs $9.95 with the license. “What the heck?!” I have subscribed the creative apps + Adobe stock plan, but it does not allow me to download the stock photo unless I have to purchase it with the license. That sucks! I decided to stop using the Adobe Stock plan, except the Creative Cloud Apps. Anyway, I have to save my money to get free stock photos.
8 Free Stock Photo Resources
More importantly, you need to research the copyright policy from the stock photo resources before you download the stock photo. Be sure to check the creative licenses and do not steal the work of others! Here’s a list of some of my favorite stock photo resources where I find for free:
- StockSnap.com (I love these stock photos from various sites).
- Death to the Stock Photo
- Creative Convex (This site is perfect for the femines stock photo).
If you find more free stock photo resources that are not in list, please leave comments! I’d love to see and find some awesome free stock photo resources.
