Best Sites For Good Free Stock Images

brown eye - image search

I have spent considerable time researching the best sites to find online free images/stock images, along with their copyright/ Creative Commons licences. Some of these sites will probably already be familiar to you but others new, as they were to me. I hope you find this of use, as it makes the time spent all worthwhile. Sites are listed in alphabetical order.

Free Images

  • BurningWell – a repository for public domain (free for any use) images. Donations welcomed – anyone have any Melbourne images they could upload, Melbourne is not represented there at all!

Waterlillies – Fiji

Morning Glory

  • Freerange Stock free stock photos – Freerange is an advertising revenue supported photographic community – photographers get paid when users click on the ads that appear next to their submissions. Usage: commercial and personal.
  • Free Web Page Headers – Usage: Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 2.5 License.
  • freewebphoto Usage: Free for linked web use
  • Image*After a free online photo and texture collection. You can download and use any image or texture from the site Categories covered: architecture, art, food, nature, industry, humanoids, human parts, landscapes, objects, vehicles. (pretty much everything) – Usage: commercial or personal but no redistribution.

  • Microsoft Clip Art
  • StockVault – stock photo sharing website. Over 100,000 images. Usage: Free for personal and non-commercial purposes.
  • Stock.XCHNG – over 350.000 free user submitted images – terms of use vary but are displayed on each image page.

Smaller Free Image Sites

FreeImages.co.uk – over 2,500 free stock images. Usage: Only a link to site required. *

unprofound.com which was started by one photographer, Jim, has now grown to become a “a global collaboration of photographers” all generously sharing their work freely with the only restrictions seeming to be on redistribution of the photos. Check the FAQ if you are unsure. No attribution is required although I think that giving credit is the right thing to do wherever possible. Search is via photo color or photographer and a search tool still to be refined. I had trouble choosing only one image out of this wonderful collection of high quality photos and I hope to see this site grow and become well known.

Specialist Free Image sites

There are so many of these that I cannot mention them all here but I would appreciate it if anyone can recommend any that are worthwhile checking out.

These sites contain images relating to specific topics or genres, those that have been designated as public domain, creative commons or are of an age where copyright has expired.

  • Gimp Savvy Photo Archive – images come from three main sources: the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) Usage: copyright free, some restrictions with regards to privacy for commercial usage.
  • Old Book Illustrations includes galleries of animals, plants, landscapes, characters, scenes, buildings and monuments, science and technology and miscellaneous illustrations scanned from old books.

Personal Photo Sites

Personal sites where images are offered for download free of charge:

  • PD photo.org contains public domain photos taken by the site’s owner, Jon Sullivan who also has a blog, aptly titled, Jon Sullivan

orchid photo from pdphoto.org

John reminds us that if an image is in the public domain then it must stay there. You cannot claim it as your own nor add any extra restrictions on its use. He also advises that it is wise to assume that no model release has been given for commercial use; unless stated otherwise or indicated by its Creative Commons Licence.

Future posts in this series will include image search engines, directories of free image sites, where to find low cost images, useful image tools and Firefox image tools. I know because most of them are written already :-)

    The problem is with so many sites offering such a huge variety of quality images – how do you find the one you want!! I also tend to get sidetracked by looking at some of the more creative images!

    Great list! I’ve used Stock Exchange for years now, and although they are still one of the first “go-to” image sites, the quality has dropped off some unfortunately.

    I know that this is a list of free sites, but I wanted to mention istockphoto.com. They are a pay site, but fairly reasonably priced ($1-$6 US for a small to medium-sized image). In many cases, it is worth stepping up to a “pay a little” model instead of free, especially if you are looking for printable images (brochures, etc.) In almost every case, the quality of images is much, much more professional.

    I’ll have to check out the others you’ve mentioned here too.

    Thanks!

    great resource,I know I have tried in the past to come up with a list of sites and it was frustrating trying to find those that actually were free, so I’m thankful you have more patience than me :smile:

    Excellent list. I also like istockphotos. The photos at istockphotos.com are not free, but they are cheap and very high quality, professional photos.

  35. Posted November 13, 2008 at | Permalink

    I noticed that some of these sites also accept photo submissions. In other words, you can sell your photos and make a little money at the same time.

    See if you have what it takes as a professional photographer. Can you take photos that other people want to use?

    Nonetheless the task would seem, at first, a tough one to carry out; however, times are changing fast, and there were few and little-known online free image resources available — until today. New ones are appearing and offering a great assortment of quality pictures, an alternative to the expensive ones at traditional stock image libraries.But as long as your subjects do not require photos of art masterpieces stored in world museums, or faces of popular stars, you may be likely to find highly interesting visual alternatives by exploring the world of free and grassroots image clearinghouses.

    Thank you, Sue. GReat article. Great pics on most of the sites. And im used to take images from http://www.photl.com for my works. They have not a bad collection, and tey enlarge it all the time. Its rather a new site (at least i have found it rather lately) but i think they will gain good fame soon as well.

    If you can’t afford to pay for images then I agree that some of these sites are good places to get free stock photos. However, I can’t stress enough how important it is to be aware of the potential pitfalls if you go down this road. For a few dollars, you can buy a microstock image and if you go to one of the bigger agencies, they give you indemnification so you don’t have to worry about there being any problems with the photo you’ve bought. If you’re interested in more information about the best free sites, we’ve got reviews on our site along with client reviews & all the current discounts and promo codes to save you money: http://www.whichstockagency.com/.
