Free pictures for websites, a super easy guide!

Free pictures for websitesToday my intent is to be as helpful to all the web entrepreneurs out there as possible, and share where and how to find free pictures for websites. I am new to blogging, or content writing for a niche website as the case may be, so maybe you all already know this, but I am sure there are many who do not. In fact I know right now, that 178 people search the term “free pictures for websites”, every month, so if you are one of those people, then you found the right page. 🙂


Free Pictures for WebsitesThe solution is very simple, first thing you do is go to Google and type in the exact description of the image you are looking for, as you can see my search was “website”. I wanted a picture for the post I am creating,(the funny guy holding up the www sign). You will then have a long list of websites dedicated to your search term. You will then need to click the images button, as pictured. You will now have a nice list of all of the pictures available according to your search term. This will include stock photos you can buy, copyrighted material, free to use material etc.


Free Pictures for WebsitesThe next step

Now, what you will need to do, is to filter all of the different kinds of photos, on the search you performed, in order to show only photos that are, free to use for websites. You will need to follow just a few more steps. Click the little gear symbol in the upper right corner of the window, and select “advanced search”.



This brings up a new window that looks like the picture below.

Scroll towards the bottom of the page and under the heading, “usage rights”, you will see it says “not filtered by license” use that drop down and select “free to use or share, even commercially”
