The internet is full of all kinds of image and image files. Almost anything we imagine will actually exist on the Internet. However, being able to find something on the network does not give us the right to be able to use it freely. Moreover, there are resources, such as professional photos, that we must pay to download, or some of them that are shared, and although it is free, it is not permitted to be used anywhere else.
Fortunately just as there are platforms, such as Adobe Availability, and websites to find all kinds of paid images, there are also other websites that allow us to find free images, and without copyright, to use as freely as we want.
The following webpages will allow us to freely download and use all or most of the images and images that we find in them. Of course, we must always check the license before “grab it”, because in some cases, although the free resource, the author records in a beautiful license, and asks “male” in exchange for the ability to use it. So we should always check it, and be grateful it doesn’t cost anything.
This site is a huge bank of images and resources free of copyright and copyright, where we will be able to search and download all kinds of content. In addition to the images, realistic and artistic, we will also be able to download from Rawpixel We already created PSD files, sketches of all kinds of objects, and images created with vectors. In addition to the free and public domain images, we can also use its extensive library of “premium” images, although in order to download them we will have to subscribe to the platform.
Unsplash, precious pictures and images at our fingertips
Unsplash is one of the biggest platforms where you can find all kinds of resources. This site identifies itself as the largest source of images that we can download and use freely, without any conditions or restrictions. It stores more than a million images of all kinds on its servers, which we can download in HD for free. All resources on this site may be used for commercial and non-commercial purposes, and the author is under no obligation to give attribution.
Pixabay, a complete royalty-free photo download website
Pixabay is another of the most complete original resource site we can find. In its library we can find, in addition to the original images, vector files, and edited images. Thanks to this, on this platform we can find images and resources that would normally be impossible to photograph. It has a powerful search engine that allows us to find both original real images and more abstract compositions.
Stockvault a collection of images for all topics
StockVaultStockVault is a platform used by all types of photographers and artists as they share all kinds of professional, high-quality photos and images. We can find images for any subject, from nature and animals to buildings and objects. The images are free, we can download them for free and use them for anything we want.
Pexels, real photos are royalty-free
If what we are looking for are real pictures, no technical or modified images, one of the sites we can turn to is Pexels. On this site, we will find things that can really be pictured. For example, if we searched for “Saturday,” we’d see some results because Saturday is not something that can be photographed. Or if we search for a planet like “Mercury” because it’s not something that anyone, with a camera, can take a photo of. However, searching for “car” or “family” will return hundreds or thousands of results. All of them are made as is, without retouching.
Its search engine also allows us to search for images based on color. For example, if we entered the hex code for a color in the search box, the search engine would show us all images with that dominant color.
Beware of DeviantArt. Although the resources we can find on this site are free, not all of them are free. There are many rights protected by copyright, and others have restricted Creative Commons licenses. Therefore, before downloading any source from this page, we must check the license well to avoid problems.
