Free Quality Stock Photos for Your Blog

June 3rd, 2008 2 comments

Quality stock photos are hard to find and cost money. That is, until now…

PicApp.com is a service that states on their about page, “Add the best stock photos to your blog “for free!” Off course, it’s not “completely” free. You will have to give up some real estate for ads served along with the photos. It’s up to each individual person do decide if it’s worth it or not, but in our opinion it’s a pretty good compromise.

We like the “animated” version of their photo widget a bit better. The reason is that the ad is hidden after the initial load. Their classic widget displays the ad at all times and takes up more room. Both versions are embed below so you can see what we mean.

PicApp is pretty simple to use. However, the site seems a bit slow and the library of photos is currently lacking. They are a new company so we fully expect these issues to be resolved quickly.

Now, if this were a post about beach volleyball and in particular Kerri Walsh hitting against Elaine Youngs, you can see how PicApp can bring life and a lot of value to the post. And, it didn’t cost us a dime.
