    Can I use your images?
    You can copy, modify, distribute, and use the images, even for commercial purposes, all without asking permission and without paying attribution. However, depicted content may still be protected by trademarks, publicity or privacy rights. Read more in our blog.

    Yes you can. Its in their terms and conditions. T&C are usually boring but worth reading for all services you plan to use.

    If and only if your site is popular. If you are getting zero visits then NO.

    Simple logic. Look at this from makers POV.

    Normally fine to do so. I used an image from there once and got asked to take it down by the owner, but ordinarily it's fine - they are royalty free images after all.

    Double check the licence on each image (I know they're creative commons) - they don't require attribution - but I always find it's good karma to give a link back to the originator - even if it's a "no follow" link.

    Pixabay falls under Creative Commons, hence you are sweet.

    I only add a short note under my Disclaimer, pointing to the websites, where I got my images from. But not on the page where I use the picture, to avoid clutter.

    I've used Pixabay in the past and their right permissions are generally free.

    So you can definitely use Pixabay pictures on your blog.

    Pixabay is not a diverse and powerful source for most blogs compared to Flickr.

    Look for content on Flickr which you can use for commercial purposes and modification.

    This site has a very strong search engine that enables photo database searching.

    The downside to Pixabay is that it's difficult to find much of the content I was blogging.

    This involved commercial sentiments like fear, anticipation, and excitement.

    However, with Flickr's huge database, you can find all kinds of images that are emotionally captivating.

    This can lead to better conversions.

    Flickr doesn't come with no restriction though.

    If you use its images, remember to put photo credits under each picture and link them to the Flickr page of the content creator.

    As long as you use pictures with the right permissions, you're good to go with Flickr.

    I use Pixabay for free images, and there is no problem.
