    Thank you for putting this together!! I had only known about Pixabay, so I got some great new resources out of this post. 🙂

  5. Elizabeth Nunes

    This is a great list of image resources. Thank you for putting it all together. I’ve never actually heard of Kaboom Pics so that’s definitely something new to try

  6. Roland

    Out of all of these, I’ve only heard of one. The rest I would have to look into. But I use a WordPress plugin for all my images. But that does not mean I cannot expand.

  7. Deborah Kos

    I was not aware of Kaboom Pics. I am somewhat familiar with their 6 free downloads per week. I will keep all these in mind when I need an image.
