Pictures in your blog are very essential. Of course, the content is the most important factor, but with a good picture, you can catch the reader’s eye and he or she will be more willing to read your article. It also distinguishes your content from other similar content very clearly.
Nowadays taking quality pictures yourself isn't as hard as it used to be. You can use a camera, but it can also be done with a phone. Taking pictures with a phone allows you to be more spontaneous, because you already have it closeby when a beautiful moment happens. Here are some tips to help you taking those pictures.
If you don't want to take the pictures yourself, you can also get them online. There are two kinds: royalty-free images and free images.
Royalty-free refers to a copyright license where the user has the right to use the picture without many restrictions after an one-time payment to the licensor. If you don't want to spend too much money, you can use these pictures only for your most popular blogposts for instance.
