How To Find The Best Images For Your WordPress Website – Free Resources

How To Find The Best Images For Your WordPress Website – Free Resources

Welcome back to another video my name is Adam
from were I make videos about WordPress for non-techies and share some resources
for you in order to get excellent images for your website now when ever you build a website
what really makes it stand out and look good is quality images you have to have a resource
for quality images now there’s several ways to get images there’s freeways and there’s
dangerous ways in their speedways and I’m a go over all those in this video so first
of all here’s the most dangerous way to get images for your website and that’s just to
do a Google image search so I usually do this in a safe way whenever I want a logo for company
I’ll do that but there are certain image owners that will sue you to a Bolivian if you use
their images and a good example of that is Getty Getty owns images in the on a lot images
and if they find you using an image on your web on your website good luck for you because
you are going to get a big fat bill that you’re going to have to pay or you’re going to have
to find some legal means to fight and I don’t want that for you so this is the way Google
images it works so I just type man and I do that and then I click on images right here
it’s going to show me a bunch of pictures of man that you might want for your website
or women or something like that or scenery or anything along those lines this is Google
images sometimes it’s okay to use it like I said I use it if I want a find a logo for
a company that I might be doing something for this is the way I do it but you really
have to be day it’s dangerous you’re really playing with fire and if you’re building websites
for your clients the last thing you want is to take one of these images that someone owns
put it on your clients website and then they get sued it happens folks now there several
free resources that are actually fantastic here’s one of them right here it’s
I’ve use this many times and when you scroll down you could see the quality of the photos
here now the way they get their images there’s contributors that upload their images to this
site and you don’t have to give any attribution or anything like that and typically the images
that you find on pixels are very high quality now that I think the way they make money is
on some of the images maybe all of them so safe I clicked on this and I wanted to download
it you’ve got an advertisement here and then right here it says sponsored photos and this
is going to be photos that are on paid sites like shutter stock which is very expensive
these images are very expensive but here this one’s going to be free and there are similar
photo soap I can see how they make money right you are looking for the perfect photo you
don’t see it one that’s free and then you come over here and you see one that’s paid
and then maybe you just come out of pocket for that image I love pixels I’ve used it
a lot and one of the bigger or larger free image websites is pixel Bay I tend to not
like their images some people really do I really don’t but you can come here to pixels
and some of the images are going to be the singer to find the same images on both sides
and with these I think some of them you might need to give an attribution you’re gonna see
when you click into an image right here on the right so it’s is free for commercial use
and no attribution required silicon images I like to go for I don’t want to have an image
where I had to in order to legally use it on my website I have to give a link to some
website or someplace or something like that I usually avoid those types of images and
then there’s this new way of finding images and it’s called the Libra stock and there’s
I think another like this what this does is it kind of searches all of the free image
websites and pulls all the results in one place so if I was to type hunt two puppies
about then cute puppies like this and it starts showing me 135 results for you puppies these
images are to be in lots of different free image websites so you might want to just come
here instead of going to Peck’s essay here’s one from pixel Bay instead of just going directly
to those websites you could just come here it’s like Google for these free image sites
and when you click on one of them it’s going to take you over I think this site is ad supported
as well so right here this is can it take me to pick some base when I click on its it
actually takes me back to pics abate where I can go ahead and download that image so
this is actually a good option as well now there’s also paid options in here’s one that
I’ve used and I like a lot however they recently increase the cost of the service so I don’t
necessarily know if you would need it but it’s called stock and limited and this is
a website where you just pay a fee and you can download as many images as you want and
you can use them in any way that you want and they have some really high quality images
here now they recently increased the cost they used to give you a lifetime membership
for $89 now it’s more expensive and they also added audio and things like that they have
an audio plan they’re not showing it right here but they do have an audio plan but right
here is you see it’s $139 for three years which is so little pricing that’s all and
here’s the audio plan sorry or you can get access to their audio and it says free account
they’ve never tried their free account you can also try that soap anyways these are just
some things that you can do to get quality images for your website can add links to all
of these sites that I’ve talked about down below in the pinned comment section of this
video feel free to go down there and check out any of these websites and if there are
any websites that I have not mentioned that are really high-quality feel free to leave
links to those down below in the comment section as well because you made it to the end of

    hi, thank you for all the videos you're doing
    I've a suggestion:
    how about you start something called (pimp my website); and every time you chose a broken website for a WP beginner like me, & fix it while you're recording a YouTube video on how you did it.
    If you like this idea, you can contact me & start fixing my broken website.
    Thanks 🙂

  • Allan Rogers says:

  • Michael Barnes says:

    I own a DJ service and I'm just getting started to building a website – I have tried a couple times and I either don't like how it looks or I feel it isn't user friendly. I really want to learn how to do it on myself as I feel this will help me manage it better and it doesn't look bad on a resume when looking for jobs. Do you have a beginners video in how to get started building a website? I need one where I can have a calendar to show my available dates, connect my business facebook, twitter, and instagram to as well.

  • M. Umer owais says:

  • mikelo joseph says:

    Hello, hopes all is well. I want to say, love, your work and very informative. I have a question I am currently creating my first website ( and all is going well but I have run into a problem the images that I am importing are from another website to my WordPress and now I am trying to edit them and remove writing and logos from them and I am unable to do that with the regular WordPress setting is there a free plugin that you can recommend that will edit those images or removed the logos or writing? Thank you

  • Be Pray Together says:

    Thank you for your concerns about your subscribers I will subscribe to you right now, never give credit to Bluehost or GoDaddy, you won't believe this, my domain was expiring with GoDaddy and they went and renewed for 10 years without asking me and charged my card for one domain $550 for 10 years renewal, when I called them they told me they can not fix it, the system does that automatically and if they cancel the charge I will lose my 13 years old website. I had no money and lost that website to GoDaddy and they sold me domain to someone else. These big companies as soon as they get rich they play with clients. The give me a free site protection which I did not even ask for and after 12 months Godaddy charged me $250 for the site protection renewal and told me I can not remove the service from my account unless I fax them GOV legal documents and a notary stamp letter on behalf that I own the company. They will not accept the normal company registration papers. Can you believe it, I have my account password and access and they know me for years and but they make it so hard for you so you have to pay and can not remove the service? They are crooks and vampires. God bless you!

  • Cryptocove says:

  • Peggy Grabowski says:

  • Pat Andersen says:

    WOW lucked out and found this video today. Thank you for telling everyone of using those images that are owned. I was trying to find an artist on Fiverr, unfortunately, the one ( or one of) I really really hoped to be able to hire and work with, her English wasn't her strong suit. I would have paid her more for what she wanted, Well long story short I'll try your free image sites and info until I can find an artist. SUBSCRIBED.

I only got 10 of them for free but they’re really good. Thanks for the librestock tip.

  • hiwayshoes says:

    Hi There! I am an educator who is constantly searching for "free-to-use" images of historical figures (i.e., Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and all other historical and literary figures in general, When I browse Google Images for Alexander Hamilton, for example, and choose one of the images, Google provides a disclaimer below the image: "Images may be subject to copyright — Learn More". When I click on the "Learn More" link, I am taken to a "Legal Help" document that in no way provides any clearly helpful information for copyright purposes for the specific image I have chosen. How do I know if I am freely able to use any one specific image of Alexander Hamilton? This is such difficult terrain to maneuver, and there are many educators who suffer from this time-consuming activity of figuring out copyright statuses, when we should be focusing our time and energy on teaching. I hope this makes sense, and if you know of any educational free stock photo websites, I would welcome your recommendation(s).
    You have a great channel, thanks for doing what you do!
