From the Beyond ByLines blog, here’s a set of sites that offer photos for free:
- Pixabay – Here, you’ll find all sorts of public domain pictures and photos, free to use for your purposes.
- Unsplash– All the pictures here are a CC0 license, meaning you can copy and use them for free.
- Refe – This is a database of royalty-free stock photos. Just click on the free photo tab, and you’re in business.
- My Stock Photos– This site gives you countless beautiful photographs that are all stock images, available for both your personal or commercial endeavors.
- New Old Stock – These are vintage pictures from public archives, free from known copyright restrictions.
- FoodiesFeed – Are you a food blogger? This will be your heaven! Find a whole archive of food images that you may use without attribution (but, you cannot resell.)
- Public Domain Archive – Just click on the tab for free stock photos or go through their beautiful weekly images.
- Life of Pix – Another stock photo site, where you can find free high-resolution photos without copyright restrictions.
- SplitShire – Looking for even more free, high quality stock photos? The creator of this site lets you download and use all of their personal shots for free. They also have a free video archive!
- Photogen – Even more free stock photos, for all of your commercial and personal needs.
*Bonus: One of my other favorite sites for images is Canva. Sign up for free, and quickly discover how to create your own designs, templates, and edit photos. It’s an easy way to craft personal social media graphics with images, filters, shapes and fonts already on the site. While the majority of it is free, a few layouts and images do have a small price ($1!) . I highly recommend it if you’re looking to start designing or editing images yourself.
