List of 109 Absolutely Free Photo Sites

The one thing we learned when creating design materials is the need to find some good or great images. Searching the web is time-consuming, so we put together a list of the site that had free (a tiny percent have both free and pay and are indicated) to help make the search easier. Now we keep the 109 Photo Sites PDF list on our desktops to make it quick.

We have added “Notes:” with each entry, so you can refine your search process.

Attribution and licenses explanation
For all the sites listed above, the license is generally pretty easy to find. There’s typically a description of the license on every page or at least a link to a description.

Here are two license types you’re likely to find on these sites:
1. Creative Commons zero means that you can use the photos in any way you’d like, without asking permission.
2. Creative Commons with attribution means that you can use the photo in any way you want, as long as you credit the creator of the photo. Attribution is simple: If you include a photo on one of a web page, add text that indicates the photographer (“Photo by John Smith”) and include a link to his or her site.
Be sure to check each website’s license page for specific details.

These sites were checked and each one is free, but a few have some payment and are indicated.
