Eleven sources of free images
Use free images to get better Google rankings. People are more likely to read your post if it has images. Below is a list of 10 free image sources. Note that some of them such as Dreamstime have both paid and free on the same website.
1. Free Images
Go to the freeimages website (freeimages.com) and sign up for a free account and get free stock images.
Another excellent source of free stock images is Picjumbo. Every day more gorgeous free pictures show up. They are available for free, even for commercial use, with no restrictions.
To download a picture into your Downloads folder, click on any picture on the Picjumbo website. Then click the green Free Download button.
Gratisography is another site with royalty-free photos. Their website says “Free high-resolution pictures you can use on your personal and commercial projects.”. It does not have the excellent search feature that Picjumbo has.
Unsplash has free stock images — mostly landscape photos
5. Little Visuals
Little Visuals is another source of free landscape photos.
6. Death to the Stock
Their website says “Free monthly photos for all your creative needs. For commercial use, your blog posts, social accounts and mockups… .Every month we’ll ship beautiful photos to your inbox.”
Go to DeathtotheStock. You probably should read their license. You cannot sell or collect royalties on any of their pictures.
7. Superfamous Studios
And another one: Superfamous Studios. Think about the category of high resolution images you want. Enter it in the search box.
8. Public Domain Photos
More free photos at public domain photos.
9. Focus Fitness
Get free fitness, weight loss, and food photos. You have to be a little careful with this website. You can end up downloading many photos at the same time while you are trying to get just one.
With the Dreamstime, you purchase images with points as opposed to fix dollar amounts. Click on the pink Prices and Download Plans tab and then the Credit Packages tab on the left. This will give you the current cost of the points.
To find the Dreamstime website, go to bit.ly/nocostphotos.
- Go to flickr.com
- Search for a picture you’d like by keyword. (E.g., Grand Canyon, Eiffel Tower, Myra Canyon)
- Click on dropdown arrow beside Any License
- Just to be safe, I’d select Commercial Use & Mods Allowed
- Click on a photo
- Click on one of the icons. I clicked the down arrow to download it into my Downloads folder.
