A good quality photo or two added to your article makes it more likely to be read, passed on and saved. If you’re planning to use a series of images that will illustrate a ‘how to’ article, then taking your own photos is the way to go. But if you just need a good quality free image or two that will help to make your point, then it’s nice to have a few ‘go to’ sites.
Here’s a few places to check out the next time you’re looking for that perfect photo.
Pixabay – More than 200,000 free photos and vector graphics.
PicJumbo – Free high-res photos for comercial or personal work
I can never remember the dimensions for all the Social Media covers, avatars, photos etc. for Facebook, Twitter, YouTube (and on and on….). And if I somehow do remember, you can be sure that’s when they’ve changed it again!
