Finding images to use on your site is time-consuming and costly. Now you can go the route of simply searching for an image using Google image search but that might be a costly route. The images that you grab from there might be from an image bank. If that’s the case then you might get a nasty letter down the road demanding payment for using the image without a license.
Thankfully there are a growing number of sites that offer beautiful stock images that you can use free of charge.
Most of these images are free from copyright restrictions because they were published under creative commons public domain. This means you can use, copy, modify the work, even for commercial purposes all without paying for a license or even asking permission.
