Are you using images from the internet? Did you know that many images are subject to copyright infringement laws and can cost a marketer dearly?
Marketers are generally posting images as status updates on Facebook and other social media platforms, as well as their blogs and when creating digital content or as part of their ad campaigns.
Be very selective and cautious with using images from the internet and stay away from images subject to copyright infringement laws. When conducting an internet image search, visit the sites with free, public domain images.
Using Images From The Internet – Where To Find Some Free Ones
If you’re going to using images from the internet, here are a few sites that offer the free use of images and what, if anything, they require in return:
MorgueFile – high resolution stock photos, completely free for public use.https://www.morguefile.com/
Pixabay – stunning public domain drawings and photos for free. https://pixabay.com/
Unsplash – high-resolution photos completely free.https://unsplash.com/
Pexels – free stock photos. https://www.pexels.com/
Foodiesfeed – stock photos of realistic food in high resolution https://www.foodiesfeed.com/
Gratisography – Free high-resolution pictures https://gratisography.com/.
Google Image Search
In addition, when searching for images using Google, type in your what image you’re looking for. Then look for the tab “Tools”. When you click on it, you will see another tab “Usage Rights” with a drop down. Here you will see an option “Labeled for Reuse”. Images found under this option are available for use both commercially and non-commercially.
Just a heads up that all images Labeled for Reuse may not be exactly what you’re looking for. In fact, they may not be related in any way to what you want but check it out anyway as another option.
Other Sites Requiring Credits/License for Use of Their Images

Images are always an attention-getter and using them in your marketing is highly recommended if you want to grab some extra eyeballs on what you have.
Just be careful you don’t get the wrong kind of attention. Always go for the copyright free images and avoid those annoying legal issues.
