A few words of warning before using any free images.
Even though all the photos are free to use, without attribution, for personal, editorial, or commercial purposes, some of the sites shown in this series have stipulations that require attribution. Also for commercial use, do check with each of the free image sites that you can still use the images for free. So make sure you read the usage license every time you download an image.

Fotor includes a massive database of free images under the Creative Commons license. The photographs come from different sources as Fotor uses Flickr API and searches Creative Commons photos.
A fresh and unique feature is their WordPress plugin lets you search, manage, and add Creative Commons photos to your blog posts in an effortless way.
What I like most about Stocksnap is the friendly navigation that makes it easy to find what you are looking for. Besides the standard Search Bar, you will see displayed the most popular keyword searches, suggested categories, and the option to sort images by the number of views, downloads, dates, and even the trending pictures. That is so cool and really useful!
The website was started in 2014 by two photographers uploading and sharing their own images, then they opened it up to other contributors. An excellent place to find pictures that you didn’t see in other photo sharing sites.
