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.
