    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?

    I use images from Pexels, Stokpic, Life of Pix, they are free to use and legal for both personal or commercial use. Also, they have a regular update.

    I personally prefer unsplash and pixabay. These are royalty free sites so you won't get into trouble.

    I was just about to say that. The odds of a copyright strike are very low. Plus for some niches, it's hard to find images on the royalty-free pictures' websites.

    Appsumo usually has an offer from a company that provides pictures. I usually purchase a package when available.

    search copyrighted free images on google or those images which have remix copyright available so then you remix those images and then they will look like new images, you can use them on your website plus embed videos on your website from youtube.
