A good featured image is a must for an online post to attract readers, no one can argue with that. There are many free stock images site with great choices – Unsplash, Pexel, Pixabay, just to name a few. You can use them for editorial purpose even without attribution, millions of businesses and bloggers benefit from these stock image sites.
But there are problems with these stock image sites:
Problem 1 – lack of uniqueness
First of all, many of the images are not unique. Some photos are so popular that you can recognize their sources. Bravo to the contributor for such a useful and beautiful photo; but for people who want fresh and authentic images, free stock image sites are too “common”.
Problem 2 – lack of current events
If you are blogging for news events, it is very difficult to locate relevant free images from those popular free sites, and often you will find good images only at the paid image sites, and with a high price.
This is not only for news events: in our experience, it’s difficult even with some not-so-new topics to find good featured images without running into paid offers (all the free stock image sites have affiliate images in the search results coming from iStock which belongs to Getty Image, or Shutterstock, etc.)

Image Search Comparison – “Vaccine”
You can see that Scopio shows totally different images, and more variety.
Although in some popular search terms, such as “Blockchain”, Unsplash and other free stock image sites have more images. We suggest you use some keywords that you use often, and check out the results.
We think that Scopio trumps other free stock image sites with people-related images.
