Having good quality high-resolution images on your website can make it stand out. If you are keeping your website fresh and updated by having a blog, the cost of purchasing images can add up really fast.

I have compiled a list of some amazing free stock photo websites that I often use when posting articles on my blog here and also on Savvy New Canadians where I post personal finance stuff.

These websites have generally released their photo collections under the creative commons public domain license and attribution is not generally required.

That being said, as a precaution, I would still advice you carefully check each and every photo downloaded online (and their websites), to ensure you do not run afoul of copyright laws.
