It is really important to have photos, pictures or images with your blog posts. This will help them grab attention. It also gives you a photo for them to be shared on social media or in your newsletter. Photos for your blogs makes your blog page look more engaging and interesting too.

However, there are things that you need to consider when choosing photos for your blogs. This is what we talk about in this blog post. By choosing the right photos for your blogs you can boost readers of your blogs and visitors to your website. However, by selecting the wrong images for your blog posts, you could land yourself in some really hot water!

  • Wherever possible, try to take and use your own photos. We know that this isn’t always possible. Here at Creative Content Company, we have had one small photoshoot and have plans for another in the future. The aim of these photo shoots will be to get us some great stock images for our future blogs posts.
  • Think about the images that you are choosing. Are they relevant to your blog post? While a picture of a cute cat might attract attention, is it relevant to the content of the blog post or your business? The images you choose need to be relevant to the text.
  • It’s important to use high resolution photos too. Remember that your blog posts and their images will be seen on a variety of small and large screens. By using high resolution images, you can rest assured that your pictures will be high quality, however they are viewed.
  • Never use copyright images in your blog posts. This is one of the biggest mistakes that we have seen businesses make, and it can get them into a lot of trouble too. When we are looking for pictures for our blog posts we use This is a website where you can choose the sort of image you want and download it for free. There are paid royalty-free images out there too.
  • While it can be tempting, you should never overstuff your blogs with images either. This can take longer for the blog post to load up and will stop people wanting to read the full blog post.
