1. Unsplash

Unsplash is one of the top-rated free stock photo websites with over 850,000 images. These high-resolution images are sourced from a talented community of media creators and photographers. There are various themes to choose from, and you can always search for what you precisely need.

2. Gratisography

Gratisography is another reliable platform for stunning stock photos. This platform is known for the quirky style of Ryan McGuire, a famous photographer. You will find a vast collection of royalty-free, high-resolution images organized in different categories as nature, animals, urban, people, and objects. If they don’t have the photo you’re looking for; they offer promo codes for you to use on Shutterfly! #perk

3. Brand Content Product

Just like it sounds, this website provides designed items for your brand, different content pieces, and products. Whether its a themed pack for social media, a logo, or a brand guide, BCP can support your needs. The items aren’t free, but they’re so affordable that we felt passionate that it was worth mentioning. $5.99 for ten social media graphics? Under $75 for a custom logo with two options?! Read us like a book.

Please, and thank you!


4. IM Free


IM Free offers an outstanding collection of stock photos that can be used for commercial needs (for free, just remember to site the creator). They are organized by different categories as nature, education, and technology for easy access. The site isn’t as clean of user experience as an Unsplash or pixabay, but it’s still beneficial.

Shout out to IM Free for having a little more diversity in their stock photos than most sites! Yes, we are looking for all different kinds of people to be reflected in stock photography.

5. Pixabay

Here you can find more than half a million videos and images that are suitable for personal as well as commercial projects. The best part is that they come with a Creative Commons Zero license; it means you can modify them with ease. And, you can search for photos or stock videos!

6. Pexels

Another fantastic platform where you can find millions of stock photos from some famous digital creatives and photographers. This platform also aggregates unique collections from other websites such as Pixabay, Little Visuals, and Gratisography. Pexels also provides the opportunity to search for photos and stock videos.

7. Morguefile

This platform was developed in 1996, and today, it has become the biggest platform for free stock photos. Don’t worry; the experience on-site doesn’t feel like a 1996 website. These images can be easily used as backgrounds for some text-based graphics.

8. Reshot

Reshot is one of the largest free image sites, collected from talented photographers around the world. You can also find an impressive list of curated theme photo packs to lead specific campaigns online.
