How to Find and Use Free Photos For Your Blog…
And Not Get Sued!

Free and legal photos…

You may or may not realize it, but just because a photo is on the Internet doesn’t mean you can use it for free on your own blog. In fact, if you use a copyrighted photo illegally, you could be facing an expensive lawsuit.

So where can you get free photos? Believe it or not, there are lots of photographers out there who want to share their photos with you. All you have to do is know where to find them and what the rules are for using their photos.

Flickr.com, a massive photo-sharing site, allows you to search for photos which have special usage rights under the provisions of the Creative Commons License. This means you can search for images which will not only fit your topic, but will also be free to share. Check out the information available on Flickr’s “Creative Commons” page:
