Finding free images to use in personal or commercial work has never been easier, thanks to a growing number of stock photo websites. Better yet, the photos I have been finding are surprisingly high quality and lack the typical boring, stock feel.
Below is my hand-picked selection of the best free stock photo sites that I often reference when designing websites. The majority of these sources offer completely free, do-whatever-you-want licensing but it’s still a good idea to check the copyright details before downloading.
I’ll continue to update this collection so bookmark it and check back. If you have a suggestion for where to find other free stock photos, leave a comment.
Note: requires you to enter a captcha before each download, which is a little annoying.
Note: this site is loaded with ads; watch where you click.
Note: requires attribution.
Note: photos emailed to you monthly if you sign up.
