5 free websites for stock images

In-house photo libraries are rarely kept up to date or full of high quality images to accompany your press release, newsletter or other communications content.

So whatever your profession, it’s never a bad idea to have some stock photography websites up your sleeve.

I’ve compiled five free stock photography websites below, so you too can have access to millions of images instantly.


Pixabay is an image repository which integrates images from other image hosting sites.

They attempt to gather the very best of free stock images for your own personal or commercial use.


Pexels started in 2015 and has grown to develop a reputable stock photo library.

It doesn’t only display images located on the Pexels website. It also outsources images from such high-quality websites as GratisographyLittle Visuals, and more.


StockSnap provides an excellent and extensive library for free stock imagery. With hundreds of high-quality photos added weekly.

Life of Pix

Life of Pix is great because the photos are broken down by category in their gallery.


Gratisography has high-resolution and high-contrast photos, with new photos added weekly.

So once you’ve downloaded your new images you can then use them standalone within your existing content or to create something new such as an infographic or a Spark video.

I’ve blogged on which websites I recommend for creating infographics  and how to create Spark videos.
