9 Best Websites To Buy Stock Photos In 2020 | Copyright Free

To avoid copyright infringement from Google or any other search engines, we want to buy stock photos for the website or our own content.

You may find many images in Google Images according to your category, some of which have the copyright logo and some have not.

This does not mean that you can use those pictures for your content.

If you use pictures on your post by downloading from Google, you may be penalized for violating Google’s copyright law.

There are many websites online that will give you completely copyright-free images to keep you safe on this thing.

Also if you want, you can hire a graphic designer from freelancing sites for creating images.

Let’s see some websites for stock photos that are best in this year.

#1 Canva

Most of the pictures you see on the MineRev website are designed by Canva.

Not to be a graphics professional, this online photo tool allows you to create very creative images.

This website is currently at the forefront of choice for bloggers, because any image can be customized in its own style.

They debuted in 2012 as an online graphic design tool. Already for their extraordinary features and easy customization, it has gained popularity with bloggers all over the world.

#2 Shutterstock

In my eyes, Shutterstock is the most valuable photo stock company in the world. There are no pictures you won’t find here.

You can download any image according to your category and use it in any of your posts.

However, if you download a picture for free from this stock, you will find the company logo attached to the picture.

So to get pictures without a logo, you have to purchase a plan from them.

After purchase, you will able to download and use pictures for your own work. You don’t even have to give them any credit for using their pictures.

Because you can customize images here you want, just as you can on Canva. You can also download and use images to suit your needs.

It was established in 2000 as a photography company. And from Canada, they are still continuing their activities around the world.

What will happen if you used the copyrighted image?

Let’s see an example, I created a picture with my own idea or spent money on making a picture from a designer.

For that reason, I am the copyright owner of this image.

Now if you take the picture of mine and use it on your own website, even without any permission, how do I feel?

Certainly, it will feel very bad and as well as a lot of anger.

At this moment which I will do that is, I will send a notice directly to Google that this website has used my image on its content without taking permission from me.

As a result, Google will remove your content from its search results.

Just for this small mistake as you lose visitors just like that you’ll lose business space.

Hope you understand the distance of copyright and no copyright images.

Conclusion

In order to autocomplete a post, we usually attach as many images as possible to that post.

So we need a lot of images. Because of this we go to Google and download specific images and use them on our site or for business purposes.

As a result, one day we get a copyright claim and our site goes to vanish from Google.

For the smallest mistake so that our site does not get a penalty from Google, so we will purchase stock images that don’t suck and use them.
