Are you looking for really free pictures for your business site, your presentation, or your personal blog? You’ve probably already tried to search for “free photos” on Google, finding so many royalty-free images such as iStockphotos [or tip tip] or [tip tip = “owned by Adobe”] Fotolia [/ tipso]. And you soon realized that royalty-free images are not free as you mean it … also pose various limitations on the right to use you would gladly do without.
In addition to photos that are free, that is, at no cost, you may also be interested in copyright-free photos, that is, they can always be used for any purpose and without any right of assignment (they do not require linking to the site of the author). Luckily, the web has a lot to offer you free and free, often also of excellent quality, which does not have much to envy to the photos of these paid sites.
In this post we have collected a list of sites that offer 100% free resource for commercial and non-commercial projects. In some cases, photographers have handed over their jobs to the Public Domain and do not even have to be cited, although thanks really deserve it!
