13 Amazing Places You Can Get Free Stock Photos!

1. Unsplash

Did you know Unsplash adds 10 new royalty-free photos every 10 days and they’re almost always of breathtakingly attractive beautiful landscapes. Just scroll to the bottom of its home page!

2. Picjumbo

Picjumbo is a personal favorite of mine due to its easy navigation and extremely high-resolution photos (with no attribution required). This site also happens to support a great collection of food shots, so if you’re running a restaurant or nutrition-themed startup, you might find it worth your while to take a browse.

3. Pixabay

Pixabay is a web designer’s dream. Not only does this site offer an easy-to-use search feature, the images are absolutely brilliant. And most don’t require any attribution at all.

4. IM Free

IM Creator, which also offers an online website building tool, put together this small library of premium-quality free photos. Attribution is required but it’s well worth it: These pictures are of the same, if not better, quality as those of paid sites.

5. Gratisography

Gratisography’s collection is, in a word, incredible. Built by the talented Ryan McGuire, an artist and web designer, this site features some of the most evocative images on the web and they requires no attribution whatsoever.

6. MorgueFile

One of the simplest sites on this list, MorgueFile has a streamlined layout and carefully curated list of photos. Its selection isn’t as large as that of some of the other sites on this list, but the photos included cover a wide range of topics. You can find images of everything from wildlife to antiques.

7. FreeImages

While most stock-photo sites focus on a small niche (usually landscape photography), FreeImages offers thousands of pictures from a diverse set of categories. Most important, it’s searchable, which is an incredible time-saver when you’re working on a project.

8. Little Visuals

LittleVisuals is a unique site, run according to more of small-scale, handpicked approach than most stock-photo sites. Sign up for its email list and you’ll receive seven high-resolution pictures via a zip file every week.

9. New Old Stock

New Old Stock is a collection of antique photos, many taken by government agencies or discovered in estate sales. You can scroll for hours without growing bored.

10. Picography

The simplest site on this list, Picography is a scroll-through gallery of random shots offered by a handful of professional photographers. You can’t search it but this site is perfect for designers looking for evocative photos.

11. GetRefe

If you need architectural or landscape photos fast, GetRefe is ideal. There are no frills, no categories on this site. Just beautiful, natural images taken by a series of photographers traveling throughout Europe.

12. Jay Mantri

One of Southern California’s finest designers, Jay Mantri offers this eponymous collection, Jay Mantri, with free, inspiring photos that’s updated every Thursday.

13. Public Domain Archive

You’ll find vintage pictures of modern scenes at Public Domain Archive, an expansive online collection of images, many with striking symmetry and muted colors.

  1. I love your posts, in the space of 30 minutes you can come up with so many, all very useful! I take you prepared them ahead and schedule their publishing: a thing more of us should be doing 🙂 Thanks!

  2. So far I’ve been trying to use a lot of my own photos but I’m sure there will come a point where I write something that I might not have a good image to capture. This will be good to look back on, thanks.

  3. that’s very helpful article, at first I didn’t know that I can’t share any photo on the internet, (yeah I know stupid) and I searched for sites for free photos but I DIDN’T like them for a reason. So I go to google images choose advanced search, then choose free to use or share photos. it’s easier and less time consuming.

  4. This post was so useful, beside the photos you can also learn a lot of things. At first since I didn’t have very much of a clue, I tried and somehow managed with my own pictures, but they weren’t always fitting the content or as beautiful as the ones online. This sites will certainly help, but since I had some difficult moments with my own pictures I will stick with my photography tutorials to improve and hone my skills.

  5. This is a great article! Have you heard of rawpixel? You’ve probably seen our images all over the place. We’re the leading stock photo contributor in the world. We’ve just launched our website where we give away the best free design resources out there. We’d be stoked if you would check us out and add us to this list.
