This is a video I made with some of the best websites to get free stock photos and images. I really think these are the best free stock photos sites and if you have any other suggestions, ou can let me know in the comments below.
On the below mentioned websites you can scroll through their materials or do a photo search. All high resolution photos can be downloaded for free and I mean, really for free. So if you are looking for free stock backgrounds or free images under the creative commons banner, here you go.
The websites I cover are sort of photo search engines in many cases and all have very high quality images and they are the following:
Pixabay – a really cool website, but make sure you only go for the free stock images. http://pixabay.com
Unsplash – A really great website that is updated every Thursday if I am not mistaken, with 10 new photos (very high quality). http://unsplash.com
Jeshoots – A website kept up to date by Jan Vasek. http://jeshoots.com
