Where do you get images for your blog?

  1. I know there are several shared photos sites (inluding Flickr), but just curious which do you go to first or use the most for your pictures need?

    And while I'm at it, what program(s) do you use to create your avatar, blavatar or header?

  2. You did not specify a blog address or reason for posting when you created this topic.

    This support forum is for WordPress.com hosted blogs only. If you have a self-hosted WordPress blog you need to seek help at the WordPress.org forums, not here.

    If you don't understand the difference, you may find this information helpful.

  3. Wow, I got the staff chiding me literally two seconds after posting the topic, must be an auto-response? How about no reason besides curiosity? Nor I need help with my blog (I thought I was safe posting in Off Topic and not Support).

  4. yes, it is an auto post.

    I goto Flickr first and then header over to the google image search and theres also plenty of stock photo sites. I use GIMP to work on the header for my blog and modify certain icons.

  5. google images for stock images.

    I'm a graphic designer so I'm an expert in photoshop, id be dumb not to use it in creating/manipulating my images.

  6. I use SmugMug.

  7. I make them all.

  8. Same as Omarmodesto, I made them.
    If you want to see funny images, my blog is full of them.

    Scope.

  9. I have a free WordPress account, so the only graphic I have in the layout is the header; I made it by resizing and cropping an old snapshot. I have other graphics in my posts, though they're subject to my Rules of Content Use.

    If your looking for images that won't get you into copyright or trademark trouble, I've got some public domain links you can check out. http://arizonad.wordpress.com/links/public-domain-links/ Hope that helps.

  10. Even with a free wordpress account you can add images to your blog, you just can't upload movies or audio.

  11. Well I get the boxshots of the games im reviewing from Gamespot.com

    I knew about adding images, though I hadn't known about movies and audio (Thanks, lorawow). However, you can't change the templates for the free account unless you opt for one with a customizable header. Fortunately, WordPress has some good ones. ;)

  13. i cant get pictures to paste onto my blog

  14. I draw my pictures or take photos :)
    I use paint.net for the gravatar (its a free program x] )
