Top 5 websites for free stock images
When designing and creating a website, it’s usually a very bad idea to use someone else’s images – not only because you can get into legal difficulty, but also because it calls into question your integrity for others using your services. Fortunately, this doesn’t mean your website or blog will be left with gaping holes and white backgrounds. Most images are free from copyright restrictions or licensed under CC0.
