What are some websites that have free stock images? I get this one a lot, and find myself re-typing out the same list for people looking for resources to build their websites. So I thought I would make a short post about this and then I can refer people to this article.
If you’re like me, you type in google ‘free stock images’ or ‘where can I find free photos’ or something like that. However when you get to some of the websites it says ‘to pay for this image…’ – warning rant alert…I get so annoyed when some website says free pic and then when you click on it, you have to pay! and don’t think I don’t know you photo websites do that on purpose. calming down now.. rant over.
I am not saying that some images are not worth paying for – I have purchased many beautiful images over the years and believe I got my moneys worth but don’t advertise free then try the bait and switch, that’s nasty.
Here is a list of REALLY REALLY FREE stock images. One note of caution sometimes you might see a page with two sections of photos- one section is the websites results for your query, the other is sponsored content- which will take you to a commercial image website to purchase images. Just be aware of the two and be sure to choose the one of interest to you.
So here is my list of websites for free stock images
UPDATE (added some more):
If you found this helpful. Could you share it with others? Thanks.
p.s. Like the old Bell and Howell camera in the pic at the top? – that’s not a stock pic. I took the photo – I actually have that camera sitting on a shelf at home, it was my Dads.
