I stumbled across Pixabay about 6 months ago and signed up for a free account when I was searching for a few images for my website.  The site is so easy to use and gives you access to thousands of amazing photographs and images in loads of different categories.

All you have to do is upload some of your own photos that you’re willing to share with others so that you can have access to the huge selection available from other Pixabay users.

UPDATE August 2018 – you can also download hundreds of other great royalty-free images from www.pexels.com.

I’ve recorded a short video to give you an over-the-shoulder view of the website (www.pixabay.com) and hope you find it really useful.

      I was an advocate of Pixabay, but once I’d discovered Pexel, I changed my loyalty very quickly.

      I find the searches easier and the images on Pexel are of higher quality, in my opinion, and am happy to use them everywhere.

      I did find when using Pixabay that you did have to check that there were no fees/royalties involved before you used the picture although that might be better now as I moved across a while ago

      But thanks for the article
