Images in blog posts will add to the visual appeal and context but finding free images is not easy. Flickr creative commons archive is one of the solution but not the only option. Photoxpress is a free stock photo site that is offering royalty free images to use for personal and professional use.
Photoxpress has a collection of more than 350,000 images in 22 categories including photos and vector illustrations. You need to register to download photos and you can download upto 10 images/day that is not bad for bloggers. If you need more you can go to Fotolia their sister site for commercial content.
Photoxpress has a powerful search for finding the perfect image for your needs, you can restrict the search to categories, photography or vector. Hovering on the image shows a bigger thumbnail so you donâ€™t have open tons of images before finding the one you need.
Images downloaded from Photxpress can be used for personal and professional activity, all you need to do is credit the image to photoxpress (for example: Photo courtesy PhotoXpress.com) and you are all set. Read the download agreement before using the photos.
