I often get asked by clients where to get images from for there websites, blogs etc… Well there are plenty of sites floating around the good old t’internet but favourite of mine and usually my first and last call is Unsplash.com they have such an excellent catalogue of images available all free for use, have freakin’ sweet is that!
Now the polite thing to do and I recommend this is that you put a tag or kudos “Nod” to the original creator of the image/s you have chosen to use, Why you ask? Well why not! These images are creative assets and a simple thank you and a show of appreciation to the original creator is a nice thing to do, I always add a small link to the footer of all content that has used a free for use image…take a look below 🙂
Boom… I am happy I have a kick ass picture to complement my content, and good old Austin Chan here has a nice credit for his creativity 🙂
I would highly recommend that your sign up with Unsplash.com an you can save images that catch your eye to your account and download them free anytime you need.
