Having high quality images for your landing pages, Facebook Ads or website is one of the best ways to attract the readers attention. But how do you find free stock images?
Most people are visual and stunning photos will get their attention quicker than the best written copy. Much of Instagram’s success if due to the beautiful images found on every feed.
The problem is that high quality images that don’t look like stock images are very expensive to buy and taking your own is not an option for most marketers.
The two sites below are the best I have found for amazing photos for business use.
Pexels is the #1 place to find high quality free stock images that are free. The images are striking, beautiful and best of all free. This is my go to site.
Stock Up is the second place I go when I need images. The images are not as professional and look very natural but still stunning.
Stock Up indexes 10,332 photos from 26 different free stock photo websites including:
- Life of Pix
- Jay Mantri
- Public Domain Archive
- Kaboom Pics
- Good Stock
- Skitter Photo
- New Old Stock
- Snapwire Snaps
- Free Nature Stock
- Free iMage Bank
- Barn Images
- Negative Space
- Krzysztof Puszczyński
- Bucketlistly Photos
- Good Free Photos
- MyStock Photos
You are able to do just about anything with most of the images on the site and licensing info is included on each image as you hover over it.
I like these images because they feel like they are taken by real people in real situations and don’t have that free stock image feel.
Let me know if you have any other places to find stunning free stock images for commercial use.
