There’s no getting away from the fact that most often, the photos you snap on your phone generate the biggest engagement on LinkedIn, the good news is that, if you need them, getting free images online is relatively easy. I’ve shared a few websites here to help you. But the key is remembering to choose images that align with your content and help convey your message effectively. Visuals can enhance the impact of your LinkedIn posts, so using free image resources can be a valuable asset in creating engaging and visually appealing content. Where possible try to use images you’ve taken yourself. Your audience will love you for it.
Images can be a real barrier for some people when it comes to posting on LinkedIn. They’re not comfortable using the photos they’ve taken on their phone (which are often THE BEST – especially if they have people in them) and they rightly worry about ‘borrowing’ images they find online. The good news is that there are several websites where you can find free images to use in your LinkedIn posts. Here are some popular platforms that offer a wide range of free stock images:

2. Pexels (https://www.pexels.com)
3. Pixabay (https://pixabay.com)
4. Freepik (https://www.freepik.com)
5. Canva (https://www.canva.com)
These platforms provide high-quality images that are free to use for personal and commercial purposes, including social media posts like those on LinkedIn. However, it’s always a good practice to read and understand the licensing terms and conditions on each platform to ensure proper usage and attribution, if it’s needed.
