I am a visual person who loves colour, vibrancy and quirky images. If you want me to read something, follow something, attend something or buy something then you have to make it pretty! So let’s talk about where you can find free stock images for all your social media, web and print needs that will help you make everything pretty!
Remember, there is absolutely no reason why you should be using images that you do not have permission to use. Never save something directly off the internet without knowing where it came from and who owns the copyright.
If you have more questions about when and how you can use images I recommend you read Photographers & Copyright by the Australian Copyright Council. The purpose of this information sheet is to give general introductory information about copyright. If you need to know about how the law applies in a particular situation, please get advice from a lawyer.
NOW! Here are 11 websites where you can find awesome free photos:
My personal favourite is GRATISOGRAPHY because of the quirky style of photographer Ryan McGuire. If you have ever seen a presentation of mine then you can bet you’ve seen some of the images from this site!
Now go forth and make all of your things pretty!
