Images are critical for making your blog look amazing, but they can also be the most daunting part of blogging.
To keep it simple, I recommend adding a “featured image” only (until you’re more comfortable). Lining up images within your posts can make you crazy!
When you do feel comfortable enough to add images to your posts, make sure to use images that are all the same size and layout (horizontal/landscape images work best). This will make your blog look more uniform and pleasing to the eye.

Where To Get Images For Your Blog
I NEVER recommend copying images from the web without express permission from the original owner. There are tons of sites out there where you can legally get images – free and paid.
We personally use the following image sites.
These are paid image resources, meaning that you have to pay for the images, but there are several free image resources out there if you do not want to pay anything out-of-pocket.
Dreamstime (and a few of the others) actually has a free section.
Here are a few other free sites.
There’s even a search engine for free photos here that searches across many of the other sites.
