How To Find Free Images For Your Site

April 26, 2011

By Carol Amato

If your budget does not allow for buying royalty-free photos from iStock, then pay close attention.

I reveal how to ethically get free images from two great resources.

If you need a free photo editor, go to Free Stuff and download Gimp.  Hope to help.  As always – Hope you enjoyed How To Find Free Images For Your Site, if so, please share it and tweet that on top of page and share on Facebook.
