Where To Get Copyright Free Images for Your Website or Blog And How To Optimize Them!
What’s going on guys, So today’s article is going to be a quick one but I want to talk about where to get Free Images for your website or blog and awesome images for that matter.
So I’m gonna give you three different sites where you can get Free Images literally don’t have to sign up and don’t have to pay anything. It’s awesome and then I’m gonna show you how to optimize your images and put them on to your website.
So that they run like that so the worst thing that can happen is when a user goes to your website and they’re just waiting for the image to sit there and tick down until it’s fully loaded. So that means that you’re using way too high of quality of images or they’re not optimized.

So I’m gonna show you how to do all that stuff starting right now okay so the first website is called Pixabay.com. So pixabay has awesome photos. So to go to pixabay just go up your browser and open a new window and type Pixabay.com.
So if you want you could just search for your image right here or you could just browse some of their latest photos. If you’d like but I’m just gonna type one in let’s say, I’m gonna do technology and then you get all these awesome technology related photos. There’s just a lot of stunning images in here and these photographers are super impressive.
So let’s say I really liked an image all. I got to do is click on it and then there’s a button over here on the right that says free download. So just click that and then you can choose the size that you want. If this is gonna be for your main header at the top of your homepage.
I recommend the 1920 this is gonna be large but not too large and again I’m going to show you how to optimize these images. So that they run a lot faster on your website. If you want that image just go ahead and click on the download button and then you just gotta prove that you’re not a robot which we’re not real human beings and then just click on the download button and then that will hit your downloads. If you want you can donate to the authors and all that I actually have before because I appreciate when people put free stuff up on the internet for me to use.
So the next website is called pexels.com. I’m just going to go up to my browser and type in pixels.com and again same thing it’s a lot like pixabay. So you can just search for the photos that you want or you can browse some of these and these also have free videos as well which is really cool.
So I actually downloaded a lot of free videos from pixels but again if you want to search for one I’ll just type in city and then click enter and there you go so then you got a ton of city pictures that you can get and if you just want to download one all you have to do is click on it actually really like this one right here.
So I’m going to click on that and then again you can just go over to free download and if you want to choose the size you just click on this little arrow over here on the right and you’ve got the original which is actually pretty big.
I’m gonna go ahead and do the large or if you’d like you can do a custom size down here by entering in your own width and your own height and then just simply click on download cool. So now that photo just hit our downloads as well.
Okay and the last site is called unsplash.com. So let’s just go up to search bar and type in unsplash.com and again just like the others. it’s pretty straightforward all you have to do is search for the image right here.
If you want or you can browse some of their images down here but the cool thing about unsplash is that you actually have these categories up here in the top menu.
If you wanted you could just search for just textures and patterns. If you want more of a subtle background for your website and then you’ve got all these awesome textures that you can browse through that is pretty cool. I don’t think the other two sites had this if they do feel free to let me know in the comments.
If I was wrong but I usually just search for my images instead of browsing because I usually know exactly what I want by the way guys so the reason I’m recommending three different sites is because I go to one site search for it. If I can’t quite find what I’m looking for I’ll try the second one and then the third one usually out of the three I find exactly what I need without having to fork over $50 for one image on a paid stock photography website.
Okay back to it and with all the others if you want to download one of the images just simply click on it and then you’ll see the little download free button up at the top and you just hit that and it’ll give you a free image and I don’t actually think you’re able to choose the size on unsplash like you were on the other ones.
So be mindful of that the way to check the size is by opening the image right click on it and then go down to file info and here it’ll tell us the dimensions. It’s 5530 by 3687 which is a pretty high image.
