July 13, 2007, Newsletter Issue #21: Stock Photos for Blogs

Tip of the Week

One way to enhance your blog is by adding photos and other images. You might love pictures as much as words, but you may not have the time or talent to add a to your personal writing. Did you know that you can find countless photos -- taken by professional photographers -- for free on the Internet? These types of photos are known as stock photography. That means the photos are available for use by a wide audience. Some stock photography is licensed and cannot be used without a royalty fee. You should avoid this type of photography for your blog photo as it can be expensive and more time-consuming to download. Photographers take lots of pictures and one way to get them in front of an audience is to offer some of them for free. This gives a photographer exposure. Because of this, you'll have no trouble finding a free blog photo.
