Searching for free images for blogs can be a drag, I know.
If you are blogging for yourself or for a business, you know that a time comes when you need that extra image that will make the post just right, but that image is nowhere to be found. Or at least, not for free.
And then it begins. Tons of time spent online, searching for that perfect image only to have to let it go once you found it, either because it’s expensive or because it’s not in the free images for blogs category (meaning it’s not free for us to use).
I have years of trolling the online world for this and that, so I have put together a list with websites that I have found over the time, that offer free images for blogs. I use the majority of the websites today, whenever I need an image that I don’t have and/or can’t create at that moment.
Here is the list with free images for blogs (in no particular order):
This website collects free for use photos from different websites, grouping them all together. I have founds many great and clean images for blog posts here.
On this website you will find both free and paid images. But we will focus on the free ones right now, that is why we are here, right?
Plenty of great images to choose from, on various topics. Give it a try.
Picjumbo used to be one of my favorites. This is because of all the clean and vibrant images that it offers. You will find plenty of nature, fashion and business images on the website.
Yet another lovely website with great images. Pixabay is on my top list and one of the go-to websites when I need images. The topics are diverse, but most of the times you will find exactly what you are looking for.
Stocksnap has awesome images if you are looking for nature, cityscapes and lifestyle images. Most of the images are high-res, so if you need high-res images, stocksnap is the place to go.
Impressive nature photos is the main asset of Unsplash. They upload 10 new free images for blogs each day so keeping an eye on them can inspire you and help you get closer to that hidden gem.
Most of the images on barnimages have that nostalgic, retro feel to them. There are times when a blog post would need just that for that extra drama. Check them out.
What I love about kaboompics is that aside from the breathtaking nature images, they also feature business oriented images.
They have images for pretty much every holiday, so if you need a holiday related image, just do a search on kaboompics.
All the photos are taken by skitterphoto contributors and they are quite a creative bunch. You will mostly find lovely nature photos, which come on quite handy when creating blog posts.
They have great images, but there are not too many to pick from. But maybe they have the exact image that you are looking for.

Lifeofpix does not have a huge free images for blogs database yet, but the website will get there. You can also contribute if you have awesome images that could help others.
A great website if you are looking for free high-res photos and videos. Yup, they have videos as well.
All the photos are business/startup oriented photos. If you are looking for photos describing the ‘office life’ this is a good website to go to.
Many beautiful yet diverse images, covering a wide range of topics. They upload new images every week, so checking them one in a while could prove to be really useful.
Now this is a bit different. All the images are vibrant, full of emotion and they are all taken by the same photographer: Ryan. Check the website out, you will love them.
