The overall tone and sophistication of every hotel website relies on its look and no doubt, the images featured. Every post on your blog requires visuals that will correspond to the article and your hotel's aesthetic. Searching for copyright free images is a tedious and time-consuming task. Therefore, a creative pool of people has come up with websites that provide you with royalty-free images for this very reason.
Many of these photographs are free from copyright restrictions or licensed under creative commons public domain dedication. This means you can copy, modify and distribute the work, even for commercial purposes, all without asking permission. Although crediting the photographer isn’t required for these images, doing so allows them to gain exposure.
However, some photos may require attribution. We’ve done our best to identify which license they fall under but we still advise you to do your own research and determine how these images can be used.
