Hello readers today I am going to tell about a site which I use for images and the site is Depositphotos as I said that I am using images for my blog post from there, I will tell in a better way. If u are a blogger you will surely understand what I am going to say :- “lets think that you reviewed about article and posted an image which you downloaded and you are getting a good amount of visitors suddenly got a mail to remove those image used in the article as it is copyrighted and you have no choice other than removing it”.
I too faced this issue and searched a lot on internet to find a site where can I download images which are not copyrighted and of high quality for my blog as all of you know a Picture says 1000 words. Everyone sees the feature image of post if its good then readers read it. As soon as I came across it I logged in using Facebook and explored a few pictures and checked for android I got a very good number of photos which are of high quality and I thought that the images are free but they are not because nothing in the world is free. There are a number of categories ranging from Abstract, Animals to Vintage, you can get many images which are not available in Flickr or similar photo sharing sites. At present as per Depositphotos website there are almost 1,63,17,697 nearly 2 crores of images which is a huge number, that anyone can get desired photo by simply searching with keyword.

Images present in the site are Royalty free stock files. Today almost nearly 2 lakh new files are uploaded exact number is 1,56,161 and Depositphotos have a 11 lakh happy customers who are downloading these files from their website.

Account Types – Buyer and Contributor
One more thing you can browse their site in almost 18 languages including English, Chinese and many more. There are two options to register one is register as buyer and other is register as contributor, buyer account helps you to buy images from Depositphotos and the contributor account helps you to sell your images through Depositphotos. It is the only site I know having stock photo agency with premium royalty free stock photos you can browse images but you cannot download images unless you are a member in any plan.
On the blog of Depositphotos you will get a free vector image every week. I simply love the vector images because I can’t find the images which are available in Depositphotos anywhere in the internet. So I will recommend every blogger to get a subscription which is freely available for blogger and give it a try.
