Well i thought i'd explain how i get all my images free without paying anything ever for royalty free images. I use these images in articles posted to my money sites. All the images are free of watermarks. Software : I use scrapebox for this. if you don't have it, it's only $57 and it will save you thousands and make you thousands if you use it right The method : 1. Open scrapebox 2. Open notepad and we want to paste in some footprints from stock photo websites like the following : inurl:istock -site:istock.com inurl:bigstockphoto -site:bigstockphoto.com inurl:fotolia -site:fotolia.com inurl:shutterstock -site:shutterstock.com Save this file as a.txt file. (there are hundreds more of stock photo sites you can enter, just do a search and use the footprints above as a guide) 3: In keyword box in scrapebox, enter a keyword of a picture you are looking for. for example : Lion 4: Once you have entered your keyword, you need to click on the "M" button just at the side of the footprint section. Load up your .txt file with your stock website footprints and you should now get something that looks like this in the keyword box: inurl:istock -site:istock.com lion inurl:bigstockphoto -site:bigstockphoto.com lion inurl:fotolia -site:fotolia.com lion inurl:shutterstock -site:shutterstock.com lion 5: Now, you must have the add-on installed called " Google image scraper" you can install this via the add on button in scrapebox. Open up the "Google image scraper" which will bring up a new box. 6: You need to click the button "load keyword from" Which you need to choose "scrapebox keyword list" This will bring all the footprints in the "Google image scraper" 7: Set your settings on how many pictures you would like to scrape from different footprints ie : 25 images from istock, etc... Also choose the size of the image you are wanting to scrape. 8: Then all you need to do is click on " locate image url's" and let scrapebox do it's stuff. Scrapebox will then scrape all pictures you could want for keyword "lion" 9 : Simply export the list of URL'S and there you have your images. All you need to do is copy and paste the URL'S into your web browser and then you have a royalty free stock photo. I hope this can help many of you out. It has saved me quite a lot of money grabbing images for articles.
