    wasn't sure where to post this. but admin pls feel free to move it to the appropriate section if it is not:)

    So I came across this method that might be of some help to a lot of folks here. This is a method of getting almost any high quality image you want from your fave stock photo site without paying a dime for it. Might have been posted before but if not, here you go:
    1. Visit your fave stock photo site. I?m using shutterstock.
    2. Search your keyword terms and find the image that you would like to place on your site. Click on it and the website opens the image page where the image has a watermark on it.
    3. Right click and save the image.
    4. Visit www.tineye.com and click upload button.
    5. Select the image you just saved
    6. Tineye will present all the websites on the internet that have that have used that image. You can sort your results by the size of the image so you easily identify the high resolution ones.
    7. Browse through these images and you will find some of them without watermarks.
    8. Right click, save and use them to increase your ROI:cool:
    I used shutterstock in my example but the same principle applies for any other stock photo site. With this you don?t have to worry about anyone suing you becos these images are actually from stock sites and are not owned by anyone. There are other creative ways you can play around with this but I?ll leave that to your imaginations. Have a good weekend.

    Well, this method helps you to get a free img but it doesn't prevent any copyright infringement...

    I remembered this "method" was posted numerous times in the last 3 years since I joined.

    And @ OP, just because you have it without watermark, it doesnt mean it is "without copyright infringement". You didn't pay for it, meaning you dont own any rights.

    This is a good temporary method when you are starting out to be honest. Grab a few images, once you make some money and get things going, actually buy the rights to the image. Reduce the risk of losing what you're building.

    Exactly, this doesn't protect you from copyright infringements since they aren't legally licensed to you.

    ...And you can use google image search to find images the same way (by using the search by image).

    As above, this doesn't mean it isn't copyright infringement. You don't own a license to use these images. It is not true to say that images from stock sites are 'not owned by anyone'. Someone still has copyright, whether that is the stock site or whomever uploaded the image to the stock site.

    This isn't a method to avoid copyright issues. Even if someone hasn't put a watermark on his image and you use it for commercial purpose, he can sue you on that (unless mentioned that it can be shared and re-posted for any purpose).

    The title of post should have been something like... How to get a paid image for free

    :)
