In the digital age, everyone has a computer, smart phone, or tablet with HD quality or retina display., and effective websites must be visually captivating.

We understand how important amazing images are so we have developed great relationships with photographers, and we maintain several image source  memberships to make sure our clients get the best images and graphics.

The licensing costs on images, however, can really break the bank—even a big bank.  That’s why one of my favorite image websites is an absolutely free one.  I’m talking about pixabay.com.

The problem with most free images is the quality. Plus, even if you find a high quality one, there are usually limitations on how you can use or modify it. You also must attribute (credit) the photographer. Giving photographers credit wouldn’t be bad, except that it sometimes disrupts the design.

Pixabay offers over 470,000 HD images that do not require attribution and can be used however you like, even for commercial use. It really doesn’t get any better than that.

So go check them out.
