How To Get Free Images For Your Blog (Legally)

By | March 4, 2020

OK, so taking an image from the web and using it on your site without permission probably won’t land you in jail.

But many webmasters have paid hefty fines for doing just that.

So why take a chance when the solution is so simple.

I’ll explain an easier (and safer) way in this post.

I’m no technophobe, but there is one online business necessity that I am just awful at…

Anything image related.

When needing a picture for my site or for a client’s site, I’ve spent literally hours looking for something decent to buy. And they’re all so expensive!And that’s just finding an image!

Of course I could just hop over to pixabay and grab a free image. But even if I do that, when it comes to customizing the image and saving it, I am totally lost.

I don’t know a crop icon from a resize to a jpeg to a png. Sad, eh?

And yes, I’ve tried Gimp, Paint, Photoshop and even many web based image editors.

But with every program I open, all I can manage to do is stare at the screen with no idea what to do next.

After clicking around blindly for an hour or so trying to edit one single image, I’ll still hate the results. I’ve even been known to scream obscenities at my screen.

Well recently I was saved from all that aggravation.

No more hours of frustration trying to find images and edit them.

Now I use a simple, little tool.

The Social Media Template Pack

This thing is so cool. You simply type in what kind of picture you’re looking for and it searches sites for royalty free images you can use. Or you can use your own. It also comes with a ton of backgrounds, effects and text effects.

Then, and this is the best part… it’s so easy to use and edit your images.

See the image of that cartoon lady behind bars at the top of the page?

I made it in 3 minutes flat.

To show you how simple this really is, and that even a photoshop failure like myself can do it, I’m going to add another image right now and add in the words Law Of Attraction Is Just Half The Equation.

I’ll tell you how long it took me as soon as I post the image. Here goes…

Bam! I found that image and added my text in 3 minutes flat. This is so fun I’m going to do another one…

That one took me 2 minutes.

The Social Media Template Pack

I could go on and on about how cool it is, but instead, I think I’ll just add some more pictures of some of my favorite things, for your viewing pleasure…

OK, I think you get the picture. (Pun intended.)  In case you need more, here’s a quick video demo so you can see how easy it is to use the FotoPress WordPress Plugin…

Thanks for reading today’s post.
