5 Amazing Stock Photo Resources
Ever wondered where to get beautiful high resolution images that you can use in your next project? One of the most important things to keep an eye out for is the license. Not every image can just be used in your next project. The websites listed below are a good resource for Images released under Creative Commons Public Domain Dedication.
Images that have been released under Creative Commons Public Domain Dedication can be copied, modified, distributed and be used in any sort of project, even for commercial use, without asking permission.
Unsplash is undoubtly one of my favorite resources for high resolution images. Unsplash publishes 10 pictures every 10 days. And best of all, they are all released under the Creative Commons Public Domain license!
Stocksnap most likely has the biggest offer in royalty free stock pictures. The website is easy to use, and you will most likely have no problem whatsoever to find the ideal stock image for your next project. Also for Stocksnap.io goes that all image are free from copyright restrictions - No attribution required.
Gratisography might not offer the same amount of images that you will be able to find on Stocksnap.io, but it's definitley worth a mention in this list. Every week Gratisography.com publishes new images that are free of copyright restrictions.
Splitshire was created by Daniel Nanenscu with the idea to give images, that have been hidden away or have been collection dust on a harddrive, a purpose. Or as he describes himself, "Two years ago I created SplitShire with the simple aim of giving life to photographs that would have gone into oblivion without any utility". All photos on Splitshire are free to use, for personal as well as commercial purposes.
Last on the list is the Tumblr account of Snapwire, an online service that lets you put out a request for an image, to which photographers can reply with their offer, afterwhich you can pick and buy the winning image. The Tumblr account offers 7 royalty free images that have been released under the Creative Commons Public Domain license every 7 days. Definitely worth checking it out!
