Photos are important for your posts and pages. They also can cost you an arm and a leg. If you steal them from other sites? It could cost you a whole lot more than just your arm and leg. Photos are copyrighted, along with other content on the web, including recipes. Yep.

There you go. Free stock photos. You’re welcome.
