What are my go to sources for FREE images?
A picture tells a thousand words. Ensuring your business has the right images will help you stand out in a crowd.
It’s important to remember that you can’t just google an image and use it. Images are subject to copyright, so using an image without permission could result in a hefty fine or legal proceedings. Therefore you must ensure the images you use are freely available for commercial use.
Here are my favourite free images sites:
- Dreamstime not all images are free on the site
- Deposit Photos not all images are free on the site
It’s important to read the licence agreement on the individual site, as some may have restrictions on use. Generally, these sites provide images that can be used on your website or in a brochure. They usually cannot be sold or used on something that is sold for example a T-shirt. You will need to purchase any images with a specific licence for those purposes.
Do do you have other free images sites that you love to use? Let me know in the comments below.
This list was correct at time of publishing but it’s important to do your own research and check for licence restrictions prior to using images. Creative Desk Pty Ltd is not responsible for images use based on the content of this article.
