My New Discovery: Pixabay

As a blogger, finding graphics is challenging. I am not making money off the blog, so I don’t want to pay money for the blog. Since I am not about to start buying pictures, I don’t want to steal pictures, and graphic design is just not my thing - this has been a challenge.

Recently, however, a colleague told me about a great site for free graphics and I wanted to share it with the rest of the world. The site is called pixabay.com and they have tons of excellent, high-resolution images for free download in a variety of sizes.  

Apparently, the company survives by offering images from pay sites like Shutterstock and accepting donations. The Shutterstock images are clearly marked so there is no confusion and donations are optional. Considering how helpful this service is, I highly recommend donating so we can keep Pixabay alive forever (I already did my part and will do so again).


If you are looking for images, even for commercial purposes, I definitely recommend you check our pixabay.com!
