When it comes to sourcing images for your projects, we always end up using Google Images. With every image that we search, we get many results that are original and contain watermarks. These stock photos can be avoided in two simple fixes.
The first method that can be convenient for any user is to get the Chrome extension StockBlocker.
Get StockBlocker for Google Chrome here. And install it in your Chrome browser.
Head over to Google Images and search for the images you want. You will see a button enabled beside the search bar labeled "StockBlocker".
Click the button to see your results refreshed and all the stock photos with watermarks are hidden.
The second method of filtering all the images is one that takes a lot of efforts. You can search for the images from Google Images, and once the results load you need to add "-site:(name of the stock image web page)".
The images will be filtered to show all results that will exclude the images from the stock image service.
