if you are an online entrepreneur, you must be aware that using visual content on social media is very important to engage your followers and fans.

But there's one question we get asked a lot: where can you acquire high-quality, free photographs that you can use in your blog posts or social network posts?

Copyright protects nearly every image published in the last 30 years, giving virtually every author the exclusive right to use or duplicate their work.
