Many business owners have created their websites using some of the best website builders. One of the questions is: where do they find images for their sites? Another logical question is how much money you should set aside for buying professional, high-quality images? We have great news for you. You don’t have to invest a dime to enhance your site with stunning imagery. Here are some of the best places where you can find free images for your website.
First on our list is Barnimages – a free stock website launched in 2015. The minds behind Barnimages are two photographers from Latvia, Roman Drits and Igor Trepeshchenok. By visiting their site, you’ll find an extensive collection of free images that Roman and Igor hand-picked themselves. Now, here’s what you should know about the licencing part. You can download free images from Barnimages and use it for both commercial and non-commercial purposes, but the image author retains the image copyrights. The site recently released a collection of free autumn images, so feel free to check it out.
Unsplash is another excellent place for finding free photos for your site. It features around 550,000 images that you can use for commercial and non-commercial purposes. Contributing image authors is not required, but it’s a nice thing to do since the images on Unsplash are of excellent quality. The site is one of the busiest places in the world of free stock photography. An interesting fact is that every second 16 images are downloaded from Unsplash. Fascinating!
Pixabay is probably the most popular source of free stock images. The platform is currently home to nearly 1.2 million images, videos, vectors, and illustrations, and all of them are free. Pixabay images work in the same way as images from Unsplash for example. You can download or modify Pixabay without crediting the author or asking permission to use their work on your site. Pixabay also features the Freebies category, so you might find something interesting there as well.
Apart from these sites, you will find free photos on any of the following sites: PhotoPin, Life of Pix, and PicJumbo. If you’re looking for some really creative images, you’ll probably like Gratisography.
