5 Places To Find Great Images You Can Use For Free On Your Website

Table of Contents

if you're like most of us, you need a little help in the photography department, click through to find five quick options with great images that are free.Let’s talk about images and your website.

Why? Because posts with images perform better according to this post from Jeff Bullas.

Plus – it just looks better. It feels like you care enough to take the time to select and add visual elements that make the piece you’re working on better.

Looking for images for my posts and design projects is one of my least favorite things to do.

But that’s because I’m so picky about what I use. I’m not going to discuss how much time I’ve wasted looking for just the right image at various times.

I encourage you to include images in every post. Images should fit the context of what your post is about and should be high-quality.

Avoid images that look like this.

If you’ve got your own photography and it’s high quality (it MUST be high-quality), then that’s the best place to start.

But if you’re like most of us, you need a little help in the photography department, so here are five quick options with great images that are free.

Unsplash is one of my go-to resources and I use it all the time. These images have a very artistic feel to them, and are not your standard contrived images you see elsewhere. No account is required. There are some really high quality shots here, and of those on this list it's by far my personal favorite.

I use Pexels a lot in finding nice images for mockups in custom design work I do. They’ve got a great selection of professional shots that give me the look and feel I’m so picky about when choosing images to use in a project.

Flickr

I’ve used images from Flickr in the past. If you’re looking for something nostalgic, the Library of Congress has a library there with tons of great, historical shots.

When you’re using Flickr, m sure to search for the creative commons photos so you have permission to use them. You can do this by starting your search at http://flickr.com/search/advanced and scroll to the bottom to choose to only search within Creative Commons-licensed content.
