As a web designer, I know it’s sometimes difficult to find good free photos to use in a website. In time I made a list of websites that have free stock photos and thought to share it with you. I divided the sites in 2 categories. In the first one you can find free photos, no restrictions, the second category includes sites where you can find free photos, but there are different conditions in using them.

I. FREE PHOTOS, NO RESTRICTIONS

The photos you’ll find on this sites can be used both for personal and commercial projects. Also, you don’t have to link back to the site if you use one or more of their photos.

ADVANTAGES: quite obvious – there’re FREE.

DISADVANTAGES: you won’t find a really wide diversity of photos. Also most of them are taken by non-professional photographers. But still, you can find a lot of good stuff here.

II. FREE PHOTOS WITH RESTRICTIONS

The photos displayed in these sites are free to use, but you must respect certain restrictions. Most of the photos here can be used for personal projects only, also you might need to link back to the site if you use one or more of their photos. There are other restrictions, so it’s best to read the „Terms of use” carefully before using any pictures.

ADVANTAGES: a much wider diversity of photos, better quality.

DISADVANTAGES: different restrictions, most of the times you can’t use them for commercial projects, link back required, etc.

  2. Thank you so much for these! There are quite a few that i ad not heard of or used before.

    Oh- just to let you know- the link you provided for “COPYRIGHTFREEPHOTOS.COM” actually links instead to “COPYRIGHTPHOTOS.COM” – once i realized i just typed the “FREE” in there- but, you might want to fix it (^_^*)

    Thanks again!

    Do you by any chance know how to do a search within PhotoRack.net? I read their instructions–which say click the Search link in the upper right corner, but there isn’t one. I sent them a question several weeks ago, but got no response. Any ideas?
