As a social media content creator I am always on the lookout for websites that offer free + royalty free images to be used when creating images or videos.
This list contains 5 of my favorite websites that feature chic, modern, diverse, and colorful image options.
1 CREATE HER STOCK
If you need photos of women who are diverse, or images with fun color schemes check out Create Her Stock. They have free photos, but with their paid subscription they provide a greater selection.
Pexels is great if you need high quality images of various subject matters quickly. You’re able to search for a category in the search box and have a variety of images to choose from. These images are for personal and commercial use under the Creative Commons Zero (CC0) license.
Similar to Pexels, Unsplash features a search option to find photos in the topic or subject you’re looking for. To download an image, click on the photo and hit the “download” button that appears in the right hand corner.
This website has a social media theme to it, you can scroll down the feed and find your favorite pictures, or use the search option. FreePhotos.cc has some photos that can be found on Pexels, and some that can’t.
This platform features a curated list of images that can be used for personal and commercial purposes. When you go to download, the images open up into a page that looks like a blog where you can comment and give the photographer some love!
