5 Best Sites To Find Free Images

Don't use just any image.

With Google and Bing hosting every image you can possibly imagine, it can become very easy to perform a quick search and copy paste an image for your personal or commercial use. Unfortunately, you may and probably don't have rights to that image. This can lead to sticky situations down the road if you're using someone elses image as your own. To avoid these issues, make sure you own the license to the image or use an image with an open license which grants you permission to use it for the purpose you desire.

Don't Risk Litigation!
