Where To Quickly Get Quality Images For Your Blog Posts

Where To Quickly Get Quality Images For Your Blog Posts

I get asked often, “How do I get good images to use in my blog posts?”

Kozzi 01

And I understand why most people are asking. A picture is indeed worth a thousand words.

With the right image in your blog post, you could skyrocket the number of clicks and social media shares you’ll get.

With the right image shared on your social media accounts and shown on your profiles, you could get dozens of likes and tweets to rapidly grow your followership.

With the right graphics on your book cover and even as illustrations in your book, you could pocket more sales and be seen as resourceful.

And even if you’re into any form of advertisement, multimedia presentation or product packaging, the right combination of visual elements can make or mar your efforts.

My experience with finding good images

On this blog, I use a picture on every post. Not a single exception do I make. That’s how important I consider it.

There are many places you can get image for free or for a fee online.

I’ve used many of them, especially Google searches, Flickr and Compfight.

Some of the challenges that come with using such services are:

  • Many of the images are low quality. I hate drab images looking like something snapped with a 2004-model Nokia phone.
  • Most of them require you to give attribution link on your website and that can take you some time. I cherish and jealously guard my time.
  • Some of them have many copyrighted images which you’re prohibited from using even if you’re ready to give attribution. So it takes time to find an image you can use with attribution.
  • Some of them do not clearly spell out if and how their images should be credited. That puts you at risk of copyright infringement. I still remember how Linda Ikeji’s blog was shut down by Google in October 2014 over allegations of copyrights infringement.

For years, I had to endure all the above downsides of finding great images to use in my post. I had to invest ample time and energy to find quality images, check for the copyrights policy and give attributions where necessary.

But now, I know something smarter.

Welcome… Kozzi Images

Some weeks ago, I started using Kozzi images.

It’s a large online library of quality images you can use to illustrate on your blog (headers, icons, banners), advertisements (flyers, brochures, posters), multimedia presentations, book covers and pages, CD and DVD cover work, social media profiles, and even as wallpapers on your PC and mobile devices.

And according to the license policy on their website, you do NOT have to give credit back to Kozzi.

Just download from their website, and use as you like. And you can download up to 5 free images per day. That’s up to 150 images per month.

But there’s a catch…

Kozzi images is free for the first 30 days.

After that, it costs $4.95 per month. And you can cancel it at anytime and stop paying.

Personally, I’m glad to pay the $4.95 every month because it SAVES me time and gives me QUALITY.

But even if you’re not willing to invest the $4.95 every month, you can certainly enjoy the free 5 images per day for the first 30 days and then cancel your account without paying a penny.

Here’s how…

How to get started with Kozzi Images

Go to www.Kozzi.com.

Scroll down and click “Register Now For Free”.

Kozzi 1

Fill in your details and click “Start Free Trial”.

Kozzi 2

Fill in your address and Mastercard details and click “Start Subscription”.

Kozzi 3

Kozzi requires you to supply your credit card details for two reasons:

  1. To ensure your subscription continues after the 30-day free trial, in case you love it and want to keep your subscription.
  2. To prevent fraud so that a single person does not fraudulently open multiple free trial accounts.

I think that’s fair enough. For those who might want to cancel their account after the free trial, I’ll tell you how to do so below.

The next page shows that your free subscription is successful.

Kozzi 4

You can then enter a word or phrase that relates to the image you want at the top of the page and click the search icon.

Kozzi 5

When I searched for “reading,” it brought over 13,000 quality images. You’ll surely find your taste from that.

Kozzi reading

You might notice that the word, “Kozzi” is watermarked on each of the images. That’s no problem. Just click any one you want from the list and you’ll be able to download it.

When you download it, the watermark would disappear and you’ll have a clean, quality image you can use anywhere and anyhow.

If you wish to cancel your account so that you’re not billed after the 30-day trial, you have to cancel within the first 30 days. To do that, login to your Kozzi account, hover the mouse on “My Kozzi” and click “My Plan”.

Kozzi 7

Click “Cancel this subscription” and you won’t be charged.

Kozzi 6

With this guide, you won’t have to waste precious time and energy looking for quality images again and you won’t be taking the risk of copyright infringement.
