Is your church stuck using 20-year-old clip art? Or are you downloading images off of Google Images, even if you don’t have legal permission do so?

It is time to make your church website, social media accounts, e-newsletters, and printed materials look modern and professional with high-quality photos. Ideally you would take photos of your congregational life—worship, small groups, children’s ministry, outreach events, etc. But there are a variety of great websites where you can legally download high-quality photos for free. Check out UnsplashPixabayCanva, and Pexels to start.
