Finding pictures for your Facebook posts using Google search

When we create posts on Facebook, we want them to be visual and enticing. If you used pictures that you found on Google, you may run into troubles for violating copyrights.

In this post I will share how you can

find pictures for your Facebook post using Google search tools.

I will also list free websites where you can get visual materials for your blogs, Facebook and other Social Media platforms.

1. Go to Google and type your search term, in my examples I used “coffee cups”

2. Click on Search Tools

3. It will give you different options how to filter images and depending on what you choose it will result in the following:

NOTE: always check with the chosen picture how you can use it, whether you need to provide attribution or not.

 

If you want to be 100% sure that you can use pictures freely use these sites:

morguefile.com

Sounds dreadful but there are a lot of beautiful pictures.

One of my favourites, you can also submit your photos. I was very pleased that one of my photos was downloaded 17 times.

freerangestock.com

you need to register there in order to download photos, but they are free.

My favourite paid photo stock site is

depositphotos.com

you can choose to pay as you go or a monthly subscription where you can download 5 free photos a day which makes a price for one photo around 40p, the main thing is to remember to visit the site daily and download pictures.

If you know more good photo stock websites please post in the comments.
