One of the essentials concerns of publishing content, in order of making your articles more visual, which is something extremely necessary nowadays, is adding some photo or video to your texts.
The trouble sometimes is using copyright free files, that are usually under payment requirements. Fortunately there are some free platforms on Internet where you can get plenty of graphic elements, or even creating yours just by being a member of the community.
Apart of some well known platforms like Canvas or Genial.ly, here there are some platforms to get free photos that you can use for your content, some of them under special terms.
1 – Unsplash
Unsplash adds 10 new royalty-free photos every 10 days and they’re almost always of breathtakingly attractive beautiful landscapes. Just scroll down the home page to see foggy rivers, faraway mountain ranges or even battered signs in all their high-resolution glory.
2 – Superfamous
Dutch artist Folkert Gorter and his graphic-design peers at SuperFamous curate this collection of incredibly high-resolution images, perfect for use in website design or as desktop backgrounds.
3 – Picjumbo
Picjumbo is a personal favorite of mine due to its easy navigation and extremely high-resolution photos (with no attribution required). This site also happens to sport a great collection of food shots, so if you’re running a restaurant or nutrition-themed startup, you might find it worth your while to take a browse.
4 – Pixabay
Pixabay is a web designer’s dream. Not only does this site offer an easy-to-use search feature, the images are absolutely brilliant. And most don’t require any attribution at all.
5 – IM Free
IM Creator, which also offers an online website building tool, put together this small library of premium-quality free photos. Attribution is required but it’s well worth it: These pictures are of the same, if not better, quality as those of paid sites.
