Finding free images for your projects can be quite a pain. Most of the “free” stock image sites come with terms and conditions that don’t allow photos to be used for commercial projects, or require permission/attribution, or the images are just not good enough.
We’ve done the hard work and shortlisted 10 stock image sites that let you download images under the Creative Commons Zero (CC0) license, which means that they are free for personal and commercial use. You can modify, copy and distribute the images without asking for permission or providing a link to the source. Basically, attribution is not required (but it is appreciated in some cases).
We’ve only included sites that have:
1. Images with Creative Commons Zero license (explained above)
2. At least 10,000+ images
3. A range of images across different categories
4. A search option
Check out the list below.
2. Visual Hunt
7. ISO Republic
Disclaimer: Even though we have checked the terms and conditions on the websites listed above, it is strongly recommended that you double-check the license and read the fine print before you download any image from these websites.
