As you are probably aware, good images can improve the aesthetics of any website. But, what is even more important, images like this can also improve search engine optimization and make any content more attractive. According to some surveys, 50% of visitors are staying longer on a website if it has interesting photos/images. So, using images on your website is a must today. But, if you want to use images, you should know that many of them are licensed and copyrighted which means that other people and companies can’t use them without permission. Of course, there are free photos too, but many website owners complain that their quality is low. That’s why we have decided to create a short list of the best places where you can get high-quality free stock photos.
- ISO Republic
The ISO Republic certainly looks like an online republic of free stock photos. It offers high-quality images for free. Their library contains thousands of free photos that people can use for personal or business purposes.
This is another excellent example of a website dedicated to free stock photos. It has more or less the same features found on the most popular free stock photo website. Of course, the offer they have is updated on a regular basis. This means that if you have not found a good photo for your website today, there is a great chance that you will find one after a few days. Visit this website regularly for new photos.
Unsplash is the most famous project created by The Crew, a team that consists of experienced web developers and web designers. These people have designed for many famous companies like Apple and Uber for example. They are adding about 30 free stock photos per week. Besides classic photos, it also has a lot of abstract images.
A list like this would not be complete without the presence of Pixabay. This website is focused on providing free stock photos for business and personal usage. There is one thing that makes Pixabay different than other similar websites – the opportunity to find free videos, work of art and images.
Pexels is a completely free image depository. It has images of literally every kind. Many popular blogs use photos from Pexels. A great thing about Pexels is that you can download the photos in any size you want.
