Three websites that help audience development efforts with the aid of images
Digital publishers want to provide a valuable source of content for their audience without breaking the bank on resources. As many digital publishers and Internet marketers have realizes, visual imagery helps audience development efforts. People like to connect with the images they see on landing pages, and often towards the images from the start.
For digital publishers who are taking an image-centric approach, there are some options for using images for free.
We published an article on this topic before, where an audience member commented with a few more suggestions. Here are those additions:
-Download-Free-Photos.com: At this site, images can be used by for free at a size of 499 pixels by 332 pixels. Images used for free are non-exclusive and need to be attributed to the website on the page. Larger sized images or custom sized images come at a price.
-Photl: At Photl, images can be downloaded for free at the size of 849 pixels by 565 pixels. These are fairly large images offered for free. A simple registration is required for downloading free images. If larger images are desired, payment is required.
-Free Photos Bank: Although this site offers free images as well, there is a special section for them that seem more limited than some of the other sites. Regardless, if you were to find an image of interest in the free section, you can find some large photos. For instance, I found a picture of an Amsterdam zoo that was 1600 pixels by 1067 pixels.
I’d like to thank everyone for sharing additional free image websites with us. Do you have any other free image websites you recommend? Please share in the comments below.
