Featured Image Examples Designed To Inspire

30 Featured Image Examples For Inspiration

Thirty creative commons images on Flickr transformed into fictitious blog post featured images to inspire bloggers and content creators.

I love looking at photos and I love playing on Paint.net. That made this post a fun one for me. I hope you find it as fun and inspirational to look at as I did in creating it.

I browsed creative commons photographs on Flickr in order to create these example images. I designed (edited) them to inspire featured images for blog posts, social media posts, and any other type of content that requires a message in the form of an image.

NOTE: Each image and it’s description links to the original image page found on Flickr.
