If you are a blogger then you must know the importance of using photos in your blog post, as in todays era of blogging it is highly recommended to use photos in your blog post, as it not only allows your readers or visitors to understand more accurately but search engines take it seriously too and photos will help you to find a good rank in it.

But many times you may end scratching your head if you are looking for a particular kind of photo which you can easily use on your blog post, as if you just search on Google and pick up a photo and use it in your blog post then you may end with fighting a legal case.

As those images which appears on Google are not free to use and they are the part of someone, so its better to use a Creative Commons licensed photo with a link back. But finding those photos is not easy too.

PhotoPin is a nice online web service which allows you to search for CC licensed photos which you can easily use on your blog post. PhotoPin works very similar to other image search engines and you can filter your search results by using keywords and categories.


All photos which are displayed on result page are hosted on Flickr, in simple words you can say that it will search for CC licensed photos on Flickr, you will be needed to put a link back to the photo when you use them.

On search result page you will find some photos which you can buy and for them no backlink is needed from you. All deals will be done with the help of BigStockPhoto.


When you search for a photo it will display lots of them according to your keyword, when you see a photo which you wanna use then hover your mouse on it and then click on Get Photo, then it will show all thing which you need to use in your post like, HTML code for that photo, different size in which photo can be used and backlink too.
