There are a variety of places where you can find free photos that are available for public use.
Raumrot specializes in free, hand-selected stock photos that can be used for personal or commercial projects. The photos on this site include a lot of landscapes to choose from, many with exceptional lighting and almost Instagram-style effects.
With plenty of options from high-resolution landscapes to tight, detail shots from buildings, Little Visuals has a little something for a variety of projects. This site is pretty new, with just a few months under its belt, but the images are sharp and crisp. Ryan McGuire of Belle Design has a fun site where he upload new free-to-use photos every week. Jay Mantri posts seven new photos to his site each week that are free to use in any way you please.
While the style of photos on the site vary, many of them have a rather funky feel, including a series of photos featuring common objects and sunglasses.
Magdeleine is another site with a selection of hand-picked images grouped to make them easy to find. From beautiful deserts to simple garden veggies, Foodie’s Feed has images of almost any edible item you can imagine.


All of the images showcase food in a way that looks delicious – something that is not as easy as it sounds. My personal faves are Unsplash and OpenFotos – because the also have a lot of food pics. The photos are distributed without any copyright restriction under CC0 and finally we join the raw file with each photo we post so you can play with it. But I started a site that offers high res photos that are free from copyright restrictions (CC0). Most of these images fall under a creative commons license (just make sure you attribute properly) or are old enough that the photos have returned to the public domain.
The site refreshes with 10 new photos every 10 days, so there’s almost always something new to choose from. Follow the site and download photos individually or register and get seven new images sent to your inbox every week.
Each image is free to use thanks to creative commons public domain dedication, so none of the images have applicable copyrights. The images can be used for personal or commercial projects and every image includes a high-resolution version. You can search by subject, mood or color, so if you have an idea of what you need, this is a great place to start.


Many of the images are color but there is a large selection of black and white photography as well. The site uploads five (or more) new high-resolution photos per week and collections of multiple images from a single take are included.
Your options are to take the photos yourself, buy images from a photographer or stock image site or to find images that are free and available for use. Images are available for use based on each individual photo’s creative commons license and should be displayed according to those rules. Every photo also includes a link to the photographer if you want to learn more about a certain photo. With a nice selection to choose from, these free images can work well for digital projects, but many of the photos might not be big enough to use for print.
