This Buffer post outlines over 50 different sites that provide free stock images, and I’ve frequently used the following in my work:
- Pixabay: A database of over 320,000 free stock images, many are photos submitted by users without attribution requirements or copyrights. No registration is required, though you’ll need to fill out a Captcha to download images.
- New Old Stock: If you’re looking for something more vintage, this database offers archival photos are no longer under copyright protections.
- Public Domain Pictures: The title says it all – these are photos uploaded by amateur photographers within the public domain. These are free to use for personal and commercial options, without attribution.
