    Hey, I know you can do an advanced Google search and find pics that can be that wont give rise to copyrights problems later on. But I want to know if there are websites or other sources from were I can get images which I can use on my site for free.

    Thanks

    1. Go on to Shutterstock or another good stock image site.
    2. Find the image you want.
    3. Right Click on it (Chrome) & 'search google for this image'.
    4. Find the image without any watermarks. (from someones site)
    5. Right click and 'save image as'
    6. You have now bypassed subscribing/paying for that royalty free image.

    It doesn't take that long to do. Its just a possible easy way of getting around paying for a specific/suitable image.
    But if you CBF, and you want thousands of good high quality images that you can find free... Then Pay for them ;)

    You can find some great stuff for free on deviantart and freeimages, most of the artists just want you to let them know that you're using their stuff.
