Why Should I use Free Images?
I know that most people type google.com in the address bar and google for the image they want, they rarely pay attention to images usage rights. Not paying attention to that can cost you some money if a company or a person decides to file a lawsuit in court.
I know that you might be thinking that such thing might not happen to you and that might be true but it is better to use free images so you don’t have to think about that risk.
How can I Use Free Images?
Free images can be used for a variety of purposes, you might need images for these projects:
- Youtube Videos
- Blog Post
- Post on Social Network
Best Sites to Get Free Photos
I started with Pixabay.com a long time ago, you don’t have to register to use the site. You just have to search for the photo that you want, pick it and choose the photo size you want. If you want to create and account, it is free.
Sometimes you can’t find the image that you want in Pixabay so my second option for finding a picture is unsplash.com. Contributions to Unsplash are made by a generous community of photographers.
If I don’t get what I want on Pixabay or Unsplash, my third go-to website is Pexels.com. The site provides high quality and completely free stock photos licensed under the Creative Commons Zero (CC0) license.
Stocksnap.io is another good-looking website to get more free photos. They only curate the highest quality images from a pool of submissions they receive.
Burst is a free stock photo site that is powered by Shopify. They have 1000’s of high quality and royalty-free images available and free to download. This includes a wide variety of images ready for you to choose from and create with
NegativeSpace.co offers beautiful, high-resolution free stock photos for personal or commercial use, all of their CC0 licensed images are completely free to use!
You can find stunning images in those each one of those sites, actually, I have been using images from some of those sites almost in all of the Englishpost.org posts.
You have to remember that just because you find images in a google search, it doesn’t mean that you have the right to use them and that using is them won’t cause any trouble.
Two great sites to uses images in creative ways are crello.com and canva.com, you can easily create great images for your social media interactions and educational projects.
