Great Resources For Copyright-Free Images For Your Articles
If your article needs your own images, that is the best option. If you are blogging about a vacation, writing a recipe or writing instructions, it is best you use your own images as it adds authenticity to your article. However, if your article is just thoughts and philosophies or an opinion, sometimes you can't get your own images. It is also difficult when you want something a little abstract or of high quality that you can't create or shoot yourself. This is where you will start hunting for images to use. Most people simply run a google search and choose an image they find appropriate. Is this a good way to find and choose an image?

As you can see, the image may be subject to copyright. This means that if you use this image for your article, the original photographer or artist or creator can take action against you. More importantly, it is not ethical to use an image that is not yours without explicit permission, even if you put a source to your image in your article.
There are plenty of sites like ShutterStock, Alamy that have an extensive library of images that you can use for your article. You can preview (and even download) their images with a watermark, but to use them you need to pay for it. And trust me, they are not cheap. So what happens if you use one of their images with the watermark all over it? These big companies will file a case against you if they find out. They are not kind and don't really warn you. It's not worth the risk
YES! There are quite a few, but I find these three websites are the best. You can get every type of image (and video) on these websites and they are all searchable and neatly categorised. They also give you the option of adding a source if you would like to give the site credit.
Here is my list of three such websites.
Pixabayis my favorite and probably has the most images
Pexelsis quite similar and seems to aggregate images from other sites too. It has some extra info on the image and the ability to donate to the creator.
Unsplashis used by read.cash as an option under inserting a picture
All three sites have a lot of similarity and I usually just choose one at random. You can join as a member (for free) to keep track of your favorite images and also avoid solving a CAPTCHA to download images. These sites also usually give you a range of image resolutions that you can choose to download your images in.
I am attaching screenshots of some of the features I have written up to complete my article.
