Stock photos add intrigue and interest to your web content and your marketing needs without the added cost of outsourcing photographers. Free stock photos can get a bad rap for being anywhere from cheesy to zany. However, the number of free AND beautiful stock photography sites are growing in number.
So, we’ve done the research and compiled a list of the best and most beautiful free stock photo sites for you all. We’ve crossed out anything that heavily advertised paid stock photos alternatives, and also whittled our choices based on our user experience (handy search features, scrolling, user interface, etc.).
Get one step closer to creating a more professional freelance, business, food, eCommerce, lifestyle, and travel website today.
If sheer volume (1.6 million pictures) and high quality is your thing, this german-created website takes the cake. Beware of some highly-edited photos you’ll have to skip over though.
Oftentimes you will find the same free stock photos used by several different sites. This smaller site is a great option for those looking for something a little more creative and personal, and seems like a great tool for lifestyle bloggers or millenials.
If you are particular about having unique or slightly whacky options, Pexels seems to deliver a collection of images with a high contrast. Great selection of corporate, food, and seasonal photos – you will have to wade through a few odd balls here and there.
Unique and fresh stock photos from budding photographers, you’ll get a curated selection from the viewpoint of a younger generation.
