A good place to get free stock photos
« on: September 08, 2008, 03:52:14 PM »
Hello,

My first question here. I was wondering if anyone on the forum knows of a good web resource to get free stock photos for niche sites. I want to edit my sites a bit and thought that adding and changing photos would be a good way to achieve this.

Well look forward to any responses.

Andrew

Ok,

I did some digging around and found a few sites that have good free stock photos.

The two best I found were:

Code: [Select]
http://www.everystockphoto.com/

http://www.sxc.hu/

Followed by five more:
Code: [Select]
http://www.morguefile.com/

http://www.imageafter.com/

http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/

http://www.burningwell.org/

http://www.public-domain-photos.com/

I hope that this helps others out too.

Cheers

Andrew

Hey Andrew

Thanks for your findings. Sure to be useful.

Just one question though; How do you know if the stock photos are actually free/ free to use?

I ask this question because a big time marketer, a short while ago, got into a little trouble with this issue.

Regards

Jim

Hi Jim,

That is a good question.

Code: [Select]
http://www.sxc.hu/ sxc provides a form to contact the photographer before you can download the picture, so that they can approve your use of the photograph.

Code: [Select]
http://www.morguefile.com/ morguefile provides the email address of the photographer when you request to download the file. I am just making a note of the email addresses as I am building up a list of photos for my project. And will email each photographer once the site is up and running, so they can take a look and give me feedback.

The other sites did not seem well stocked, so I have not downloaded any photos from them.

Just a note the top two were sxc and morguefile, not everystockphoto.

I hope that helps

Andrew

Great sites, thank you so much for posting them along with the information about knowing how you can use them without causing yourself problems. I have been looking for some sites for some time now, and all the ones I had now require you to pay for the photo.
