THERE IS A YEARNING to learn proper design and to have attractive database solutions. I know, because I monitor which blog posts get the most hits, and posts on design always rank at the top. And since good imagery is part of the overall design, a source of commercial free images is a plus. I stumbled across this blog post from Verve and immediately thought to share it with everyone:
Any successful website, blog or social media account needs eye-catching imagery.
Fortunately there are plenty of resources available, the issue is that most of them are either very expensive or under the jurisdiction of extremely complicated licensing laws.
Once you do find a resource that offers free stock images, the majority of these sites host the same, similar stock photography and clichéd ‘arty’ photos.
Here at Verve, we think a lot about visual content and following on from the success of the recent 21 Blog Writing Tips From The Experts article which now has well over 2,000 social shares (and counting), it made perfect sense to put together this post…
Each of the 26 sites featured in this list have specific strengths and standout areas of expertise. Take a little time to discover which sites are your favourites and you will be armed with a whole arsenal of regularly updated resources to keep your work fresh and breathtakingly-beautiful.
Take the time to visit each and bookmark it. It’s worth it.
