    Here im going to share something very cool.

    So we all need stock images for our sites and finding good ones is very hard, especially ones with high resolution, and buying stock images is crazily expensive. So I want to show you guys something you can use to find thousands of stock images in seconds.

    Here is an example:

    [​IMG]

    All these images are high res.

    So let me show you how you can do this. I have 2 methods for you.

    Method 1: search all stock images by keyword
    Method 2: search one stock image site for a particular stock image


    Method 1:

    Copy and paste this search syntax into google and put your keyword at the end:

    Code:
    inurl:istock | inurl:shutterstock | inurl:bigstockphotos | inurl:jupiterimages | inurl:dreamstime | inurl:fotolia | inurl:canstockphoto | inurl:inmagine -site:istock.com -site:shutterstock.com -site:bigstockphotos.com -site:jupiterimages.com -site:dreamstime.com -site:fotolia.com -site:canstockphoto.com -site:inmagine.com *keyword*
    Then click images, then select large images only.


    To speed up this process let me show you how you can make a custom search engine in Chrome.

    1. Right click on the address bar and click edit search engines:

    [​IMG]

    2. next scroll to the bottom of the list where you see 3 boxes:

    [​IMG]

    3. Fill out the 3 boxes.. the first box is the name of the custom search engine, the keyword is the keyword you type in the address bar to activate the custom search engine, and the last is the URL... for the URL enter this:

    Code:
    https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=inurl:istock+%7C+inurl:shutterstock+%7C+inurl:bigstockphotos+%7C+inurl:jupiterimages+%7C+inurl:dreamstime+%7C+inurl:fotolia+%7C+inurl:canstockphoto+%7C+inurl:inmagine+-site:istock.com+-site:shutterstock.com+-site:bigstockphotos.com+-site:jupiterimages.com+-site:dreamstime.com+-site:fotolia.com+-site:canstockphoto.com+-site:inmagine.com+%s&hl=en&source=lnms&tbm=isch

    then click done.

    4. go test it out...

    Type in the keyword, so mine is "stockimages" then you see the blue bar, then type in the search word:

    Method 2:

    1. Ok so you found a stock image you like on lets say ShutterStock website... for example:

    [​IMG]2. next, look at the image ID.. and copy that to your clipboard

    [​IMG]

    3. Go to Google and use this to find the image:

    Code:
    inurl:shutterstock -site:shutterstock 158522279
    and if you look here...

    [​IMG]

    A lovely 4.5k by 3k stock image.. the exact one you wanted.

    You can apply this method to any stock image site.

    Use at your own risk. Good for small niche and medium level sites.

    Be aware that though you now have the image, you still don't have a license.

    Use at your own risk, indeed.

    Also be aware that a DMCA is not always a free thing.
    Depending on the aggresiveness of the organization and lawyers involved, you are looking at up to a few thousands in damages.

    Also, a DMCA is different depending on jurisdiction. In Germany, this starts at a few hundred for the lowest tier.

    I'd like to share a
    Method 3: Using reverse image search engine

    Using the same example:

    [​IMG]

    Copy the image url of the stock photo and Go to https://www.tineye.com

    [​IMG]

    Paste and search

    [​IMG]

    Sort by "Biggest image" and download your desired one ;)

    everyone should look into legal cases in regards to using un-licensed images..not pretty...organizations have custom software that finds their images on other sites....im sure you can find a way to block a crawl but technology is NEVER safe..


    I read this guide on blackhat world...

    I have used a similar method for ages. I always thought that I would try to hide behind the defense that "I bought them from a guy on Fiverr".

    Probably wouldn't wash though :)

    I agree with this. This method is very simple to implement but carries quite a bit of risk with it, especially if you are in the US. You are taking images from sites that are the most motivated to extort or sue you for stealing them, and it is not very hard for them to find stolen images - they can reverse image search just as easily as you can.
