    Most people take their own pictures to avoid copyright issues. Royalty free websites are also a great option. Apart from that you can always buy images to get the rights to use them in your blog. However, taking your own is the way to go. Hassle-free honestly.

    Just google "free photos" and you'll get hundreds of free sources.

    Will this have a negative effect on SEO?

    In my case, I either use stock images or create my own in Photoshop.
