6) StartupStockPhotos


This website offers free high quality images for use but it doesn’t even have a logo. Yes, you heard that right. This is the simplest website you will see in this list. Not even a single sentence, logo or categories can be found, just a plain page with pictures and share icons. It makes it easier for the website to load faster but hard to search pictures ending up clueless.

7) Gratisography


Gratisography is my personal favorite. This is a personal website of Ryan McGuire, of Bells Design. All the pictures found in this site are photographed by Ryan McGuire himself. On Gratisography, pictures are added on a weekly basis which is completely free and high-resolution too. You can use it on your personal and commercial projects since Ryan offers all his images free of any copyright restrictions.

8) Unsplash


Unsplash is a hugely popular website known for copyright free stock images in recent time and is often used by many bloggers and designers. All photos published on Unsplash are licensed under Creative Commons Zero which means you can copy, modify, distribute and use the photos for free, including commercial purposes, without asking permission from or providing any attribution to the photographer. Unsplash has a long, infinite scroll feed of high quality, and hi-resolution photos. But, one major disadvantage with the sites design is that there is no separate category section to select from. Unsplash is updated every 10 days with at least 10 new photos and Unsplash credits all its photos with submitters.

9) FreeImages


Freeimages is free-to use copyright free stock images and illustrations website. Previously known as stock.xchng is now owned by Getty images and renamed as Freeimages, which offers over 390,162 free photos and textures. You need to register for free for downloading images.



Refe Real Life Photos is a website hosted on Tumblr which offers free real life photos. Refe Real Life Photos is a sub-project of Refe, a site offering both free photos and a premium curated marketplace and monthly premium subscription newsletter. Refe has been uploading the images to its archive since January 2014.
