8 Free Photo Sites Every Blogger Needs

Friday, November 21, 2014

I can't reinforce how much good, quality photos on your blog are important! Many times it can be the turning point on whether I follow the blog or not. 
Pressure much?!  Not really:)  There are free photo editing sites all over, not to mention all the sites where you can snag free photos without worrying about copyright.  These are my eight favorite photo sites divided into a photo editing list and a free photo list. 


PicMonkey - Definitely one of the best photo resources I've found.  Free, quality, and extremely easy to use.

Foto Flexer - This is fun because it has glitter text, and a lot more text options then Picasa or PicMonkey.  

Picasa - Technically a download, but it's so worth it.  If you need a fast photo edit (cropping, brightening, text) Picasa is the way to go!


Old Design Shop  - A super cool blog with very vintage-y looking picture downloads. Example:

Viintage  - Another vintage site.  Example:

Picjumbo - This a random jumble of really nice high-quality pictures. I like to use these when I'm making a how-to post because these pictures are perfect to add text to.  Examples:

Free Foto - A downside to this site is that you do get the little 'free foto' logo on the bottom, which you don't get with any of the other sites.  It depends on how you feel about that. 

Favim -  Be careful with this site because even though it has super cute girly pictures, I have seen some swear words and semi-inappropriate love pictures on there.  My advice would be to search very specifically for what you want, and you should be golden:)

Have a great weekend!  Go edit some fabulous pictures! :)
