A lot of bloggers are concerned about copyright and using images without permission. You can find out why here. I want to suggest a few freeware websites for stock images and fonts that can be used for non-commercial purposes.
This is a great site and I’ve used it for years. It’s free to browse and you don’t need an account to choose a photo.
Browse through the categories of our huge gallery containing over 350,000 quality stock photos by more than 30,000 photographers! Need a wallpaper for your desktop or illustration for your blog? Need a pic for your commercial website design? Looking for inspiration? Have a look around.
They have so many amazing free downloadable fonts submitted from users located all over the globe.
The fonts . . . [are]their authors’ property, and are either freeware, shareware, demo versions or public domain. The licence mentioned above the download button is just an indication. Please look at the readme-files in the zips or check the indicated author’s website for details, and contact him/her if in doubt. If no author/licence is indicated that’s because we don’t have information, that doesn’t mean it’s free.
DeviantArt ; Resources & Stock Images section
If you check out the Resource & Stock Images section of DeviantArt you can find fonts, brushes, images etc. Each artist makes it very clear under the image what the rules and regulations are. Many of them just want credit, but not all. You can also contact the artist with any questions.
I’ve used these sites to create our features banners!
