The most challenging task all bloggers and website designers face is to search for royalty-free images. The images on the websites such as Shutter stock, and Getty images are not free and many people make the fundamental mistake of copying images from the big website, removing the watermark by using photoshop, and using that on their website or blog.
Do you know? It is illegal and you can get a legal notice to pay huge fees in dollars for using the images without purchasing. Unfortunately, 10 years back we were once stupid enough to use the images from one of those websites and got a notice. We all learn from our mistakes, We certainly did so. The images should never be used without purchasing anywhere on the web for commercial or personal use.
In Modern Times, online business has changed. There are many websites offering royalty-free images for commercial/ noncommercial use without even a need to give credit to the photographer.
www.pexels.com is one. Pexels is a website that offers a vast collection of high-quality, free stock images that can be used for a variety of purposes, including websites and blogs. Whether you are a blogger, website owner, or content creator, Pexels offers an easy and convenient way to find stunning images to enhance your content and make it more engaging for your audience.
Pexels images are not only free to use but also come with a royalty-free license, meaning you can use them for personal or commercial purposes without having to worry about copyright infringement. This is a big advantage for bloggers and website owners who are looking to create high-quality content without spending a fortune on stock images.
We have been personally using this website on BeingGuru and designing the websites of our clients at infomist all over the world in the last couple of years. It is free, there is no online purchase, nor does any credit need to be given to the photographer.
