    Royalty free photo websites and really high-quality blogs usually make their own media assets.

    For important sites I use stock images that I purchase or my own.

    Someone suggested me to use pictures from unsplash.com but I wonder whether it could be meant plagiarism?

    So you mean it's not plagiarism?

    You're fine doing that. It's written content that's going to cause issues ( spun / copied ) articles etc. Images that are royalty free are fine, also those where you give credit to the author.

    You can search "Free Stock Photos" on Google. You will get a lot of websites like Pexel, unplash, Flickr, Shutterstock, etc..

    I have a question regarding this if you don't mind me asking here. Is it okay to use stock images such as istockphoto, shutterstock, etc from other website who has purchased it?

    No, the licence covers the person who paid, it's stealing

    OP - With so many questions, I suggest you take some time to learn about licensing and copyright of materials. You can invest an afternoon into this and answer all these questions you have for yourself. Then move on to bigger and better things! :)

    Stock sites that ask for money to use their images and if you download and publish them illegally then you're in a problem.

    If you use images in the Public Domain (CC0) then you can use them commercially and without any attribution (though providing the credits is a good thing).

    Sites like Unsplash, Pixabay, deathtothestockphoto provide high quality content, use them and be safe from copyright strikes (these provide images that are in Public Domain).
