When it comes to writing up a content, images pose to be one of the tool with which you get your audience to find your content interesting. This is because images serve as a clear and concise illustration that makes your content easily understood by your audience,

However, Google and Bing happens to be the biggest search engine on the face of the globe and most bloggers uses these platforms to sort for pictures to use.

This pictures being sort for are owned by others as it could be free and as well not be free. Most bloggers use the licensed ones unknowingly and out of ignorance.

Furthermore, if you must use a licensed picture, you must be ready to pay for it. Because photographers are human beings too and it is their hard work which should pay off. Many website and platform are out their where you can purchase pictures. They include Istock, pixabay, fiverre and so on.

Amongst this licensed pictures, there are unlicensed pictures that can be used and reused by another without any form of copyright infringement.
