9 sites to find awesome and free images for bloggers with no attribution needed



Images are absolutely key on blogs. As I say here if you don't have images it can really really hurt a blog. People like images. They are breaks to the text. They are visually appealing. Eye candy. Aka they are amazing. But some people just don't like taking photos for their blogs. That is so ok. There are a lot of free sites where you can use their images. In this post I will tell you about 9 awesome sites that have free images you can use for your blog.

But remember before using any images from sites remember to read their licensing information first.  Even if the image are free sometimes you have to give attribution or other stuff for certain photos.

1. Pixabay

Pixabay is one of the websites I use the most. It has very mysterious, pretty, and nature photos. 

Cat, Face, Close, View, Eyes, Portrait, Adidas

Doesn't that cat just look amazing and high quality?

2. Pexels

Pexels is the other website I use a lot. It has really good desk photos and lots of photos showing city life. 

people, working, writing

3. StockSnap.io

They update on a daily basis. It has less nature photos, but flowers, and people photos. Some of the photos are less bright though. 

office, work, workspace, business, desk, table, gadgets, smartphone, mobile, retractable, pen, cup, mug, window, still, bokeh

4. Unsplash

It has very large photos, nature, and country life photos. 

5. PDClipart

This is the perfect site for all things clipart. It is perfect for other things besides blog posts. Like ebooks or graphics. The thing about this site is thought that it is not very easy to use cause the design is not very pretty.

6. Canva

Canva is actually a awesome site where you can design graphic stuff for your blog. I is use it all the time. And it also comes with some free images you can use.

7. PD Photo

Some of these images need attribution but most don't. This site is good for specific places and items. 

8. ImageBase

The images are super nice and clean. Though attribution is not required it is liked. The nice thing about this site is that it is in categories. And it is all by one person which I think is amazing. 

Beach footprints

9. FREEIMAGES

Some of the photos require attribution but most do not. The photos are put into categories. It has over 388,875 photos.

I would absolutely love if you could share my posts. Sharing is caring. Thanks!

Do you use any of these sites? Do you take your own photos? Do you use photos from sites? If so what sites do you use? Do you agree that photos are super important for blogs?

  4. This is so helpful Nabila!
    I have actually been looking for places with free stock images, I use canva a lot because it's so fun but I haven't used any of the others, thanks for the tips!
    I try to take my own pictures as much as I can because then I don't have to be dependent on anyone else's copyright rules.
