  Interesting site, thank you.

  General thoughts on "free image" websites.

   Some people take screen shots of the photos instead of downloading them.  That way you won't pick up any back links or other source code from the free site, and transfer it to your own website or posts.  The EULA or TOS of the free image website may prohibit you from doing that.  Read the fine print.

....."without permission from or attributing the photographer"...

Not THAT really is FREE! (and unheard of)

And the image resolutions are sufficient for worthwhile publishing.

Thanks for a great resource!

Hopefully they have the copywrite paperwork in place for ALL their photos. Awhile ago NAR offered free use of their articles & photos via Home-something, forgot the name & they got sued along with the agents who used one particular Photographer's image where the release was not in place. I got caught up in that mess & swore off using these services because even NAR was not able to provide safe articles/photos to use. It cost me a lot of time & aggravation getting out of the mess they made for me! Had this Photographer's attorney harassing me for money for a long while; til NAR finally took care of their screwup!

I recommend citing the source and keeping records of all pictures downloaded, even if it says there's no need. There are some not-so-nice people who work for companies that hunt down people misusing pictures and try to get money from them. I was served a letter by a man who was hunting down people who misused pictures from 500px. I had one who tried to get me to pay him after I downloaded a picture off Pexels.com (like Reshot). I kept record of where I got it. The photographer had uploaded it to Pexels (as was his right in the contract he had with 500px) and had no idea that 500px had hired this man to hunt people down who were using his pictures (I contacted him directly). I didn't have to pay, because I could provide proof that I was using the picture within my rights. So be careful!
