How to find free images for your content marketing

Posted on 9th September, 2015 by Lisa Crowther

Social Media

You know that feeling, you’ve written your blog, you’re ready to hit publish but you just need the final jigsaw piece – the picture.  The panic sets in – you’re on a budget, you’ve got time constraints, how will you find the right image? In those times of need, the answer is stock photos.

These are my top go-to sources for free stock images to help jazz up your online presence.

Librestock

My first port of call for free images in a hurry is always Librestock. It’s totally free, you don’t have to register and you don’t have to pay attribution to the source. The search function is easy, download size is adjustable and best of all it’s free (we may have said that).

FoodiesFeed

As a nation, we are obsessed with food. Whether it’s the latest healthy eating craze (courgetti?), a dirty burger or a saliva-inducing brunch, we love to look at pictures of food. Opening Instagram and searching for food, this much is obvious. FoodiesFeed recognises the need for high-quality, free images and delivers it. Marketing for your food clients just got easier.

Canva

As well as stock images canva lets users create social media graphics, flyers, presentations, facebook covers, Twitter posts and much, much more. With millions of images, vectors and illustrations available as well as hundreds of design options, canva is the ultimate tool for creating beautiful images for your business.

Bonus: Giphy 

Believe me, if there’s ever an excuse to use a GIF I am all over it. Sometimes in life there are times when words alone can’t express how you feel, in those times your answer is always Giphy.

What are your tips for using free stock images? We’d love to hear if you know of any other sources.
