Here’s a list of the best free stock photo websites for small business:
Unsplash adds 10 new royalty-free photos every 10 days. Here you’ll find a mixture of urban and rural landscapes, as well as close up shots of objects and growing things. Just scroll down the home page to see foggy rivers, faraway mountain ranges or even battered signs in all their high-resolution glory. With their Creative Commons license, you can copy, and modify.
IM Creator 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. The difference between this website and some of the others is that the imagery can be a little bit quirky, so depending on your brand personality this could either be a very useful site or a waste of time.
A great resource for finding images for your websites and other design projects. Dutch artist Folkert Gorter and his graphic-design peers at SuperFamous create this collection of incredibly high-resolution images. The images are licensed under Creative Commons and require attribution.
Picjumbo has easy navigation and extremely high-resolution photos, with no attribution required. This site also has a great collection of food shots, so if you’re running a restaurant, you might find it worth your while to take a browse.
Built by the talented Ryan McGuire, an artist and web designer, Gratisography features some of the most evocative images on the web and they require no attribution whatsoever. If you’re looking for quirky images of clowns, men in rollerskates or someone climbing into a washing machine – look no further!
One of the simplest to use sites on this list, MorgueFile has 300,000+ free images and you are free to use them without attribution. The photos included cover a wide range of topics. You can find images of everything from wildlife to antiques.
New Old Stock One word: Vintage! While perhaps this isn’t a great resource for a tech company, those companies looking for authentic, copyright-free vintage photography should try it. Most of the pictures here are black and white, with some dating back to the early days of photography.
Probably, the simplest site to use on this list. Picography is a scroll-through gallery of random shots offered by a handful of professional photographers. This site is perfect for designers looking for evocative photos.
If you need architectural or landscape photos fast, GetRefe is ideal. There are no categories on this site, just beautiful, natural images taken by a series of professional photographers traveling throughout Europe.
