Finding high-quality photos for free may not be the easiest task. With help from our designers and developers at KnockMedia, we came up with a list of three of the best sources for stock images.
- Pixabay – Pixabay has a plethora of photos to choose from. Pixabay’s royalty-free photo library contains over 1,000,000 photos to choose from, which will definitely satisfy whatever you’re looking for in a stock photo. Pixabay is very easy to use and can be used to get photos for commercial or personal use.
- Adobe Stock – Adobe Stock offers multiple types of video and image files in a multitude of categories, so finding what you need becomes very simple. Adobe Stock photos can be used for personal or commercial use as well. Since Adobe Stock is apart of the Adobe Creative Cloud, you can easily move stock images into Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and other Adobe desktop apps.
- Flickr – Flickr has always been a safe and easy way to find free photos to use for personal or commercial projects. Flickr has a large variety of photos, but Flickr also offers a paid service for other high-quality photos in their library.
