Pexels.com is a royalty free stock image site, giving you the choice of 1000’s of images completely free of charge & ready to be used on your website.
Check it out and begin sprucing up those outdated pages.

Often the next obstacle is finding images with the right dimensions. You find the perfect image; use your CMS to add it to your website. Then, BOOM. It completely wrecks the page; your neatly structured webpage that you’ve spent the evening working on is completely destroyed. In an ideal world you’d hop onto Photoshop and adjust those dimensions accordingly.

One word, 4 letters.

GIMP
