I'm always on the look out for free inspiration. . . isn't everyone? Free is good. . . . Inspiration is even better.
On that topic I thought I would share some of my favorite sites that have a ton of free photos to inspire any creative creature!
1. Freeimages Over 350,000 images that can be used for creative purposes as inspiration or digitally. Certain images might contain the request to contact the photographer if you're going to use the image or to give proper attribution
2. Freefoto Has over 100,000 photos to that can be used for blogging purposes (following the required attribution rules). Most photos have small watermarks. There is a creative commons for images that an be used in artistic derivative work.
3. Pixabay Over 300,000 images that are in public domain that you can use any way you want without any kind of proper attribution.
4. Stockphotosforfree About a 100,000 images that are still shots taken from video imagery. Their royalty free licencing agreement lets the downloader use the images in virtually any creative way possible.
5. Everystockphoto - This site has license specific photos - so you need to check what you can and can not do with the photo - Most are free to use under specific conditions.
Of course, there are many more - so sometimes I like to use PhotoPin which searches several creative commons at once. Also like I've shared before Flikr has a great creative commons.
So What Have You Been Up to Creatively?
