10 good websites for free stock photos

This list of free stock photo websites offers you a wide variety of options for finding stock photography images you can use in your projects. Remember, always read the licensing terms of the image you wish to use to determine how to use it appropriately. This is our list of free stock photos.

If you need images to illustrate your website, blog, Social media posts or other marketing activity, it is always better if you are able to use original images. Images captured by yourself, your employees or a photographer you have hired. But the cost of producing original images for your illustration needs may be outside your budget, at least when you compare to alternative cost.

Great paid Stock Photos sites

Compared to production of original content, in most cases paid Stock photos services will be a low cost alternative. Still budget friendly for your marketing budget. We have good experience with Shutterstock which have a huge library of more than 125 million Stock Photos in high quality.

Another service offered by Adobe has more than 70 million images. Fotolia is offering an introduction campaign right now where they are giving away 10 free photos. You will find the same library under the brand Adobe Stock and I assume that is the brand in the long run.

We mention, but without a link, that Getty Images have many brands and a huge library. We do not recommend their services as we think their sales strategy is customer unfriendly. You may Google it if you can’t find ideal images on any of the other alternatives above and want to check out their image library.
