Two handy free stock images websites
If you've ever tried searching for free photos on the internet, you probably know all about credits, royalties etc., etc. Fair enough, if it’s for a high profile landing page image, or for your important printed collateral. But what if all you want is a simple image, buried somewhere remote in your website, or on page 60 of some document or other? And you don't want to go the : “Need A Customized Plan For Your Team Or Business?” route.
Happily, there are now a few good sites offering searchable, generic, high-quality stock photos for everyday use, such as the images accompanying these blogs. (At most, they sometimes require a credit).
Here’s my 2 favourite, hassle free, sites. They are limited in their choice, but will serve a purpose for most day to day communications. And the pictures are great quality, and generic in subject matter.
Pixabay: Reasonable selection, but under a number of useful headings, and there is no attribution required. Pixabay has a good search facility too.
Picjumbo: Nice pictures (including the one above); a bit more limited in scope though. Again, no attribution required. It too has a search faciility.
