    Hello,

    I'm currently in the process of creating some affiliate sites. While creating article content is no problem (writing myself and buying articles on writing services), getting pictures is.

    At first, I really didn't care about it and used any picture that google came up with. After few months I got an DMCA notice (this alone is too long story to tell, so lets just say I got trouble there) and had to remove almost all pictures from my blogs. I then started using free pictures to be safe.

    Now I'm trying to create some authority sites and I can't find decent, free images. Pictures seem to cost a fortune (450$ for just ONE landscape picture...?!?!) so it is impossible for me to just buy them all.

    So my question is: How are you guys doing this? Are there some easy ways to make pictures unique enough that they can't be found by search engines as duplicate content/copied images? Best thing of course would be some wordpress plugin that can do the job since I'd have to edit a lot of pictures by hand otherwise.


    Would be greatful for any tips you guys got on that topic.

    Try grayscaling it/changing size, etc. You can easily grayscale it with python.

    Yea there are a lot of things to find there. What I'm looking for here is more a kind of experienced feedback on that matter :) Pictures should basicly not look different (or at least not much).

    I'll check out more google results on it, but if anybody could give me some easy and quick method, that would be great :)

    Get a shutter stock account and learn photoshop. If you don't have money then use creative commons images and source them back to the owner.
