Unsplash’s tagline is “Photos for everyone,” and they mean it. Over 100,000 photographers contribute high-resolution photos to Unsplash, and those photos are reviewed daily for the best, hand-picked selection. With more than 850,000 photos on their site you’re sure to find what you need and be able to use it as you’d like.
Do you have a blog or website devoted to food, recipes, or cooking? Foodiesfeed might just become your new best friend. All of the photos on Foodiesfeed (1300+) fall under the Creative Commons Zero license (CC0), so you can modify and use them for free, both personally and commercially. Doesn’t this image make your mouth water and inspire you to plan your next blog post?
Ladies (and anyone who may identify as such) this one’s for you. Styled Stock offers feminine stock photography for your commercial and non-commercial needs, and doesn’t require attribution. If your website could benefit from a feminine look-and-feel, check out their images.
If you’re looking for diverse photos of women, and not just feminine photography, check out our next resource.
“Beautiful, high-res photos of black and brown people. For free.” Nappy challenges what many traditional stock photography sites offer — “unrealistic representations of real people doing real things.” Their site focuses on filling a gap many other stock photography sites miss, and that’s highlighting diversity in their photos. All of the photos they offer fall under the CC0 license, so they’re fair game to use as you see fit.
Why does Stocksnap.io exist? To provide “… sharp, arresting visual images” so your work on the web can succeed. All of their images are free to use, no matter your needs or purpose. Their large selection of free stock photography is curated and easily searchable with their tag-based category system.
Powered by Shopify, Burst is a “free stock photo platform.” One of the things we like most about Burst is their “Business Ideas” collections. Here, you’ll find 20 popular online business ideas — replete with marketing tips, business model information, and neither last nor least, free stock photography. Their photos are available for personal and commercial use. These collections were created for entrepreneurs and for those thinking of taking the leap into entrepreneurship. And don’t worry if you don’t use Shopify, they believe in giving everyone access to the photos on Burst, which we can all appreciate.
What’s life without a little quirkiness? Gratisography provides “quirky, creative, always free photos” that you can download and use without copyright restrictions. If you’re tired of the more traditional, staid, stock photography sites then give Gratisography a round of applause for providing beautiful, interesting, and engaging alternatives.
