One of the things I struggle most with Blogging is finding free pictures for blog posts.
You could purchase pictures using Istock.com but that can add up after awhile and those pictures look so fake.
So one of the most affordable methods to find pictures is to use Flickr.com. You can use certain pictures on Flickr as long as you give credit back to the photographer.
But not all pictures are free for use on Flickr. You must use pictures with a Commons Attribution License.
Ideally, you’re suppose to type in what you are looking for and the results will appear in most recent order. However, I have found that if I type in a color and sort by clicking most interesting, I get a better option of pictures to choose from.
Now that you have a source of where to collect pictures, sadly, nothing can account for taste. Often, after sorting through pages and pages of pictures, I choose something that’s just interesting and loosely related to my post.
My pictures are to be interpreted like poetry. It’s all implied and left up to the viewer to make meaning of the picture and the post. I’m like a regular Edgar Allan Poe;-).
Where do you find Free pictures for your blog posts?
