The Time Consuming Search for Photos for Blog Posts
Getting the best possible photos to illustrate and boost up the visual appeal of your website in WordPress is very time-consuming. If you do more than one post a day, and if you have more than one website, you can easily spend hours at this task! It's a waste of your time and it can be very frustrating.
You have to go to a stock photo agency website, or to a free photo site. Then browse 'til you find the right images for your content and download them. And you're still not even close to done: next you have to upload them to WordPress library, and add them to your post.
With the PixelRockstar WordPress Photo Plugin you get rid of all those tedious steps. The plugin puts a collection of millions of stock photos right into WordPress interface. You can browse, select, license and add stock photos to your posts all at one place, with just a few clicks of your mouse!

And there's also the issue of the cost: stock photos are the best choice to have compelling imagery that is also licensed and legal to use, but at times that can get expensive, depending on which supplier you use.
Of course you can fish out the web for free stock images for blogs, but in doing this you're risking yourself to infringe license terms and/or copyright. Trust me, if you get caught using a photo in an unauthorized way, you can easily be in a lot of legal trouble.
Even worse: not all stock photo agencies licensing terms allow uses that are critical to the success of your blog, like social media posts for example.
PixelRockstar is a great solution to this problem, as we provide a huge collection of stock photos that are super cheap, with a custom license that covers website and social media use.
Legal Risks with Free Photos
If you've been blogging for a while, or did your research before starting, you probably already know that using photos found with Google Images is a big no-no when it comes to legal safety. If you didn't know, you can learn the 5 Dangers of Using Google Images here. But even the sites that offer free photos can be problematic when it comes to using images in WordPress publications.
Most free photo sites offer photos under different versions of Creative Commons license. This means that all these photos are in fact copyrighted: someone owns them and holds the property rights for them. Creative Commons has many different licensing options, and if you don't know them well, it's very easy to misuse them. Some demand that you credit the author, some require that you modify the original, some allow commercial use, some don't. Then there's Creative Commons Zero (CC0) that basically puts the content under public domain (the author cedes their copyright to the public).
But here's the thing: if there's people or private property being depicted in the photos, you must assure the proper model and property releases are signed. That's the only way to make sure the photos are safe to use legally. And most of these free photo sites do not check this. Checking it yourself would be incredibly difficult, at times impossible, and would be a senseless waste of time and resources. And so, you're left having to trust the people who put those photos to use for free has the releases that grant it's legality. Not the wisest thing to do.
With PixelRockstar you will avoid these problems completely, as we offer only legally-safe images that are model and property released as required, and although you'll be paying, the cost is very low considering the benefits in safety and time-savings!
The Problem with Stock Agencies License
Stock photos eliminate the risk of infringing copyright or individual rights, as all agencies verify the legality of the images they sell.
However, not all agencies have licensing terms that address use of photos in social media. In fact, some agencies' licenses restrict this usage, or sell the rights for it separately, for a higher price.
At PixelRockstar, all the images come with a special digital-license that grants you rights to use them in websites and social media alike!
