Stock photos are professional photographs of most subjects you could possibly imagine, that are bought and sold on a royalty-free basis – meaning they can be copied, modified, distributed and used commercially. Whilst this is a great method for designers to obtain professional photos, vectors and more, monthly subscriptions can still become a costly issue – and for not as many images as hoped!
Well, worry no more! Here at Your Marketing Needs, we use a variety of paid for and free stock images. To help any designers out there, or even if you want some for personal use, here is a list of 15 of our favourite FREE stock image sites, yes – FREE!
(Many of these free stock image sites are free from copyright restrictions or are licensed under the creative commons public domain dedication. However, some photos may require some attribution therefore it is best that you check and determine how these images can be used to avoid any copyright infringement.)
