Agree, beautiful photos attract the attention of potential visitors or readers of your resource. It may be unconscious, but it is. Most of us like beautiful things and this is often used by marketers.
For those with limited budgets, there are many free sites where you can select and upload photos for personal use. Before you select a photo and think about where to apply it, I suggest you read the license terms. This is important as copyrights and breaking their terms can cause problems.
One of the best photo search sites is Unsplash. High-quality images and a wide range of choices so you don’t have to worry about finding a photo.
All photos published on Unsplash can be used for free. You can use them for commercial and noncommercial purposes. You do not need to ask permission from or provide credit to the photographer or Unsplash, although it is appreciated when possible.
More precisely, Unsplash grants you an irrevocable, nonexclusive, worldwide copyright license to download, copy, modify, distribute, perform, and use photos from Unsplash for free, including for commercial purposes, without permission from or attributing the photographer or Unsplash. This license does not include the right to compile photos from Unsplash to replicate a similar or competing for service.
There’s no point in telling more about this resource, just follow the link and be inspired by beautiful photos.
