Spruce up your blog with free stock images!

I guess we all agree that pictures are often the cherry on the blog post cake or at least they do a great job of luring in readers to start with. Of course this doesn't mean you can just "borrow" any ol' picture you find on the web. Sadly this is something many bloggers still aren't quite aware of and some even deliberately ignore it.

So basically you have two possibilities - either you snap your own pics OR you resort to free stock photography. Not handy with a camera? Fear not, my friends, I am about to share some fantastic websites that offer tons of free stock photos yours for the taking!

Download sizes vary widely yet even the smallest available are usually more than big enough for blogging purposes. Please note that while being free, signing up is required on some of the websites!

Were you already familiar with these websites? How do you like the variety of images available there? In case you know other sites that are offering free stock photos, feel free to share them in the comments.
