Where should you go to get “royalty free” images for your site?
Well, here is a super long list of resources but please be careful and do you own research because “royalty free” doesn’t mean they are “free” it just means you can use them without being in danger of infringing on someone’s copyright.
Here’s a funny story about images that one of my partner’s web designer purchased a few years ago. When I started working with him he had already hired someone in another country to put up his website. A couple of years later, after I had moved the site to my hosting, etc. he received a large invoice in the mail from one of the photo stock sites online saying his site was infringing on copyright and using the photos without paying for them. Of course he freaked out a bit when he received an invoice for over $2k in the mail for something he had no clue about.
I contacted the web designer and he produced the receipt for the purchase of said photos on the site. Then he proceeded to explain that some of the stock photo sites have people searching the web to see if they can find any of the photos that they sell (even though most of the photos for sale can be found on more than one of these sites for sale) and they arbitrarily send out these threatening letters with an invoice and just hope that it scares people into paying!!
So, beware if you receive anything in the mail like this.
Having said that it is very important to make sure your images are indeed free of any potential legal hassles.

STOPYoutube Videos from playing “Related Videos” at the end of your videos when you embed them!
Today I am going to address a common problem I’ve been seeing in the forums and on Facebook groups
that I’ve been seeing. Many people have been asking how to STOP the related videos from playing
from Youtube once their video stops playing when they embed it on their site or webpage.
So I did a video showing how to turn that OFF!
Hope this is helpful!
Step 1) Go to Youtube account where your video is
Step 2) Click on Video Manager
Step 3) Click on the title of the video to bring it up
Step 4) Click on share
Step 5) Click on embed and scroll down
Step 6) Click on the box that says: Show suggested videos when the video finishes so that it is unchecked and make sure it is saved that way!
Step 7) Copy the new embed code and paste into website or page
