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.
if you missed any part of this series!
RGBstock is a good place to look for wallpapers, backgrounds, landscapes, and food images.
A cool feature is the ‘lightbox’ that allows a user to organize photos. Photos can be assigned to a viewable lightbox by subject, for later convenience, or used to compile unrelated photos for a specific project layout. Lightboxes also can be used to show partners or customers options for a project in one simple, uncluttered folder.
11. NEGATIVE SPACE
This is a simple site with high-quality images. There is a limited number of photos, but you know that you will find only good stuff.
All the images submitted by their network of photographers are reviewed and handpicked by the Negative Space team.
There is a cool bar at the bottom of the site where you can choose one of the colors displayed to get to a page with a selection of photos with the specific color dominance.
Startup Stock Photos was started as a resource site for free photos for startups, bloggers, publishers, websites, designers, developers, creators, etc.
Even though the name is specific to startups, there are plenty of professional options to use, no matter what industry you’re in.
You will find a lot of images with people working in a cool working environment, whiteboards with post-its, laptops, etc. Very different from the boring stock photos of corporate grey suites in an aseptic meeting room.
