As a blogger photos are a necessity. Can you imagine if you visited a website and there was not one photo to be found? Articles are nothing but words with no visual photos to compliment the article? We are visual beings and many times a photo will grab ones attention much faster than words would.
Stock Photo Secrets
Many photos here at Shibley Smiles were taken by yours truly. For example if I’m reviewing a product I find that it is much more compelling to take my own photos. I have come along way when it comes to photography but I can’t always take photos for every article I write our publish. When this happens bloggers usually find a reputable site where we can either purchase a membership or purchase a single photo. I prefer sites where I can purchase an annual membership and browse and download photos whenever I need them. One of my favorite sites is Stock Photo Secrets. The photos are professional looking, and there are many to chose from when I’m looking for a specific subject. For example let’s say I’m writing an article about Halloween and want some photos to compliment my article. I visit Stock Photo Secrets, search for the term Halloween, and filter by photos only.
Of course Halloween is a broad subject and as you can see my results had many photos representing Halloween such as trick-or-treaters, food, scary photos, pumpkins and more. The more narrow your search the better chance you will have of returning a photo that fits your needs. While I usually only search for photos there are many other items you can search for at Stock Photo Secrets such as vectors, fonts, and videos. All of these can be used for commercial purposes and you can find out exactly what they can be used for here : image licenses.
When searching for your photos you can refine your search even further by selecting different options based on the layout of the photo such as portrait or landscape. Or maybe you need square photos only. You can refine by colored or black and white. Then there are advanced filters to refine them either further such as photos by your favorite author.
