The best free stock photo sites


Find the best free images in high resolution to use on your website, blog or social networks.

In past articles I’ve talked you about the importance of creating quality content to promote your business or project.

Whether you are writing an article for your blog or creating posts for Facebook or Instagram, in all these cases you will need images to make your content more striking and relevant.

If you are not very good at taking photos, my recommendation is to use a stock photo site. Here you can find photos of all kinds, in high resolution and royalty-free.

Some of the better-known image stock photo services, such as Shutterstock or Getty Images have a fee but there are also some other options that are totally free.

Here is a list of the best free stock photo sites you can use:

1. Pexels

This image bank currently has more than 40,000 photos and at least 3,000 new images are added every month.

All the images you find on this site have a very good quality, since a thorough selection and curation process is carried out to choose the best photographs.

A very useful function of this site is that it allows you to filter photos by color tones; you simply choose a color and all images with this color appear.

2. Pixabay

This is a very versatile image bank, since in addition to photos you can also find illustrations, vectors and videos.

Another advantage of Pixabay is that it has a very complete browser that allows you to search for images by size, category, orientation and color.

3. Unsplash

This image bank has more than 300,000 high-resolution photos that are provided by the “world’s most generous community of photographers.”

Unsplash has a special section where you can find collections of photos curated by their team with a variety of themes like “cloudy days”, “good morning” and “minimalism”. Every week a new collection is added to the page.

4. Freepik

This is a Spanish image bank that specializes in illustrations, vectors, icons and graphic resources.

Freepik is a very popular site worldwide, receiving more than 30 million visits monthly.

The selection of this image bank is also very wide, for example the site has more than 498,554 vectors, 99,455 icons, 760,325 photos and 13,603 PSD files.

5. Foter

Lastly, I want to talk about the Foter image bank. This is probably one of the largest image banks in the world, with 335 million royalty-free photos.

With the large number of images offered by this site, you will surely find the photo you are looking for!

As you can see, there are many good and free options for finding professional, high-quality photos.

I recommend that you take full advantage of these free resources to make your digital content a success. You can visit all the sites that I mentioned and choose the one that best suits your needs.
