Images to fill the site
Beauty will save the world!
It is impossible to achieve a high quality site without placing high quality images on it. However, not always the customer can afford to spend significant funds on a professional artist or photographer. Such investments will simply never return to the investor, and if they return, it will not be soon.
What to do? The conclusion suggests itself – to find images on the Internet and place them on the site.
This obvious solution has several disadvantages. Firstly, many of those images that we can freely and freely view on numerous sites are protected by copyright, which we do not recommend to break. Secondly, it is not always possible to find out high-quality and beautiful pictures with high resolution.
It is possible to solve this problem with the help of free image stocks, which we have a lot on the Internet. Let’s take a look at some of such resources and make sure looking for pretty pictures is much easier for us.
How to find an image stock

To do this, simply open Google and type the “magic” phrase “free image stock” in the search bar. The request can be composed of other search keys, but this will not change the essence of our method.

There is one general rule for all image stocks: we have to use requests in English. Let’s say we need to put a photo of an airliner on the site. Then we could use the word “aircraft” as a query.
Now let’s take a look at some of the useful sites to find good images. We will be looking at free picture libraries. However, of course, we can always spend money and pay for am appropriate license.
