  1. You remind me of a question that’s often pops in my my mind — where do you get author book covers for reviews. Can you just use them?

  2. Useful tips Thanks for sharing!!!

    I use Photobucket almost exclusively since I got pinched by Getty for using images from Google images without knowing about the part you put here. Thanks for some more good places to check out.

    Thanks for info about Google Images and how to find the usage rights! We use them quite often and it’s good to know that we can filter our searches. Will check out the other sites as well, always looking for something new and different….just like everyone else!

  10. Fab list Lilach!

    I am a Flicker guy but like to use other options if I am stymied on the network, or if the site is down.

    This, combined with the fact that I am always writing, it seems like lol….makes your list a super resource for me.

    Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks Ryan, glad the post was useful:) I am a huge fan of Flickr myself, but I really recommend the other websites as well, they are full of great images and so many of them are free.
      Although I have to say Google Images is probably the best, as you get results from Fllickr and all the other websites in one place – love it!

    Here\’s one more for your list I recently discovered – unsplash.com – 10 new high-res photos every 10 days

  13. Karen says:

    You’re welcome Lilach, I do have one more that I have been using for over 10 years – Stock Exchange (sxc.hu) – iStockphoto now owns them but, they have managed to remain a simple and FREE photo sharing community. I always start my searches there especially when looking for concept photos and background images.

  14. Great and helpful article. For now I have bookmarked your Blog, when I’m ready I’ll come back to it.
    Must stick to my Agenda and Tunnelvision to complete a project. Shouldn’t have been here in the first place:)

    My Blog writer and I were just talking about using free images. Thanks so much for providing the exact information we were looking for. I guess we can now retire istockphoto.com lol..

  17. Carolyn says:

    Wow, what a treasure trove of useful resources. Thank you so very much for providing this to use, Lilach. I use photos quite a bit in my blog, but finding them can be a chore. I was using Flickr almost exclusively because of the ease of searching for Creative Commons photos. Having a site that’s totally dedicated to Creative Commons makes searching for photos to use on my blog much easier!

  19. Thank you so much for these infos, Lilach. I use freedigitalphotos.net and foter, but I was looking for other sites where I could find free images. I will surely come back to your site as often as possible.

  20. Did you check out imonomy? You get content related free images, more page views, better bounce rates and profits in one JavaScript code that does everything automatically.

  21. Reginald says:


    This is good stuff. I usually get free photos using … no other than my own smartphone (self taking photos). At times, I might just Google and search for a good one and amend it accordingly to make it look more unique.

    Nice list you have there and thanks for sharing!

  22. Great article Lilach.

    I use Compfight.com to find Flickr images by keyword that are Creative Commons, and it even produces the embed code for you to insert the ‘credit’ so you don’t have to go look up the photographer’s profile URL.

    And 123RF.com is my favourite source for free images. They ask you to put a link in for credit, but I put it in the footer of the site (“Some images copyright 123RF”) so that I don’t have to add the credit to the end of each post. Keeps the post clean, and keeps them happy.

    Excellent list and very timely for me. I am wondering about free sites for fonts that don’t also load a bunch of toolsbars and spamware I don’t want. Any ideas? thanks.

  24. Sometimes memes works for me and sometimes i might just go for google safe search, i check out other sources too, thanks for mentioning them.

    Another site with free photos (mostly travelling): http://freepix.eu/

  28. And if you DO have some money to spare, you can commission original cartoons form a professional cartoonist that will make your blog/website look totally unique and professional.

    Failing that, of course, CartoonStock is a repository of millions of cartoon images available for only a few pounds each – the cartoonists receive a licensing fee. make sure you use some of mine!

  29. Yes, we always use FreeDigitalPhotos. There’s just enough to keep us interested, but not too many that we find ourselves buried with choice.
