Where to Get Free Pictures for a Website
For the majority of free pictures resource websites, all of the photos and images you see are totally free to use. But there will be some websites that will be monetized with images that are not free to use, and being able to know which ones are not free is important.
The image above is from one of my favorite royalty free CC0 picture resource websites. The name of this website is Stocksnap. Along the top row of pictures, do you see any that may look like they are not free? Take a close look because they are obvious.
As you can see in the above image, the first two photos have the Shutterstock watermark on the front of the image. Whenever you see an image with a watermark on the front when viewing a CC0 image resource website, that image is not free to use.
If you want an image that has a watermark on it, and you do not see a Free Download button next to it, you will have to become a paid member of the website whose image that belongs to. It is very important to understand that with some free CC0 picture websites, there may be images that are not free.
