We all know that a picture speaks a thousand words. Whether you blog or do brochures, pictures can be really helpful in communicating your message. The only problem is that it’s sometimes difficult to find good images that aren’t copyrighted without paying a substantial amount for licensing. The good news is that there are a few sites that offer free images. Some of them require attribution (and a link to the license) while others don’t.
