As a creative netizen, you know that you can’t just download pictures from anywhere and use them on your own project. Whether it’s clearly posted or not, content online is copyrighted or licensed such that most of the time you must purchase or at least ask for permission to reuse it. Thus the evergreen challenge: where to get free pictures. If you haven’t already found a legal supply, here’s a suggestion: try Unsplash.com.
As the tag line suggests, Unsplash is a website full of high-quality images that have been donated by photographers around the world. And the best part is they are all FREE TO USE!
According to the site’s license:
All photos published on Unsplash can be used for free. You can use them for commercial and noncommercial purposes. You do not need to ask permission from or provide credit to the photographer or Unsplash, although it is appreciated when possible.
Unlike most Creative Commons content, you don’t even have to attribute the work (though it is recommended).
Here are some examples:
So, if you’re looking for some free pictures, be sure to check out Unsplash.
