Image Galleries

It’s hard to make an impression if your articles are all text. Images make it easier for readers to digest information and articles with images are more likely to be shared by readers.

Image galleries are a great place to find creative commons images. It is important that you do not use an image you are not supposed to; therefore you should always check the license for any image you use.
