25+ Of The Most Beautiful Websites for Free Stock Photos
For every blog post you write, you need to create, or use stunning visuals. But where do you find them? To find good pictures to use in your blog post or social media post, you best option is to use stock photos. And not just any stock photos, preferably free stock photos that you can use, without risking any legal issues. To help you out in finding good quality and safe stock photos that you can use. I’ve created a list of 25+ free stock photography websites, where you can find the best pictures for your blog.
To start of, it is important to remember that the majority of photos out there have some type of copyright restriction. This means, that you can’t just use them, without either paying for them, or citing where you got them from. It can sometimes get even more complicated than that. The best solution to avoid copyright problems, would be to take all the photos you need yourself. But that isn’t always realistic when it comes to certain blogging niches. The perfect solution for that is using free stock photos without copyright restrictions. These photos are free for you to use as you want. The only thing you can’t do is sell them. But besides that you are free to use them on your website, social media, ads, etc. If you ever find a photo and you don’t know if you can use it. Then you’re better off, not using it at all. Because unless it is specifically said otherwise (like in the following list), all pictures are copyrighted. So stay in the safe zone and use one of the beautiful photos from one of the following stock photography websites.
The sites that I’ve included in this list, will all be free of any copyright rules, and can be used as you want. If that is not the case, then the website or the page of the picture will explicitly say so. So here we go:
- Death to the Stock Photo
- Jay Mantri
- Foodie’s Feed (food photos)
- New Old Stock (vintage photos)
- Life of Pix
- Styledstock (feminine photos)
- Snapwire Snaps
- ISO Republic
- Negative Space
- Cupcake (not only food photos, like the name may suggest)
- Travel Coffee Book
I’ll try to update and add to this list from time to time. If you know other great websites with free stock photos, let me know in the comments.
