Cheap Stock Photos

Cheap Stock Photos

A lot of time that I spend on this blog is looking for free legal photos. I have used:

I have also used flickr.com and restricted my search by Creative Commons License. I do this by clicking advanced search and selecting “Only search within Creative Commons-licensed content”, “Find content to use commercially”, and “Find content to modify, adapt, or build upon”. I can then use the images legally by making sure I reference the user and link to where I got it from.

I have found a really good solution for stock photos in Dollar Photo Club. It is $99 for 99 photos that I can use them up in a year. Compared to other websites this is very cheap. It saves me a lot of time, I no longer have to scour other sites for my blog post image. It is very much worth $99. This post’s image is from the same site.

UPDATE: Dollar Photo Club has been bought and replaced by Adobe Stock. Boooooo!

How to Get Free Music…legally

Legal Music

“Everybody does it, so it can’t be wrong.”

That’s what some people think about music pirating. The Bible is pretty clear, though: even if everyone is doing it, it can still be very wrong. However, we are not supposed to use the morality of the world (Romans 12:2). We are not supposed to do the wrong thing just to save money (Matthew 12:32, 1Timothy 6:10). Stealing music is against the law, and we are not supposed to break the law of the government if it is within God’s law (1 Peter 2:13-17). So here I will show you to get free music legally.
