In my dummy me thinking pictures just add that little something to you blog. It helps break up the page and draws attention to your story.
So where can you find Free pictures that are legal to use?
Here are a few ideas that might help you.
Creative Commons great source for pictures, graphics, videos and even music.
Creative Commons Search
Public Domain Images
Here are a few more places you can find Free pictures, and graphics.
PD Photo - Free Photos And Pictures (public domain, stock pictures, wallpaper, royalty free, clip art, etc)
Public Domain Pictures - Free Stock Photos
Public Domain Images
US Government Agency Websites
Yes from the US government pictures, and graphics on government web sites are public domain.

Amazon & AllPosters
This is to simple to be true but easy and you can earn extra $$$ join these programs. If you are talking about a product most likely amazon has it for sale. Allposters has thousands of pictures from paintings to movie posters even National Geographic pictures.
Ok there you have it. NO reason you blog need to look bland with all these places to get Free legal pictures.
Now go spice up your blog with Free legal pictures so it don't look like a twenty year old Wall Street Journal.
excellent post. let me warn people from signing up for sites like stockedphotos.com. first, they are all owned by the same scam group. second, the depth of pictures is not there. and finally, if you pay for a subscription and don't use it but forget to cancel it you will be charged and not refunded the next year.
