There are a million reasons to download images off of the internet. Maybe you’re a mom making a birthday invite for your six-year-old or maybe you’re an entrepreneur creating your first website or flyer. Whatever you need images for, you can stop with the pixilated freebies and stolen screenshots!
In our second “where to download it free” article, we are going to look at the best places to find high-quality free image downloads and free tools to help you create great things with them.
Stock Snap is a community-driven image library that allows you to download free, high-quality images. They have a huge library which you can search by any keyword or category you like. All you have to do is credit the photographer in wherever you’re using the image.
Pexels is another great place to find beautiful stock images. They have a great library that cross-references various sites. They do allow you to “Say thanks to the photographer” and make a donation for your image if you want to.
These guys also don’t ask for crediting, but they do encourage it. They are supported by other bigger online services.
Pixabay have been around for quite a while and they have an impressive library. You will see sponsored images from other sites being advertised alongside your search. These guys offer photos, illustrations, vector graphics and video.
Last but not least, we can’t all be designers, but luckily there is Canva. Canva has hundreds of templates to help you turn your images into posters, posts, birthday cards, or whatever. They have both free and paid images available to you, or you can upload your own images (or those you downloaded elsewhere) to the platform. It’s worth spending a bit of time playing with this platform to find out what it can do.
