When looking for free things on the internet “Free” doesn’t always mean free, or if it does it can mean cheap and nasty. This is true of photos too. You want free, but end up with bad stock photos, or having to provide attribution, but I’m happy to have discovered somewhere for absolutely free and beautiful photos.
The best site out there
Unsplash.com is all about quality and all photos are directly submitted by their talented users. That means no stock photos, no dodgy
- Great Quality
- No need to credit
The best feature is that all photos are free to use and you can use them for whatever you want without having to give credit so they’re great for your blog, website, social media etc. Of course you can give credit if you want, but you don’t have too. Often I’ve purchased premium photos to avoid having to do this, so Unsplash has really cut down the bills.
To give back a little I’ve been uploading some photos to the site too and you can see them here.
Finding what you want
Here are just a handful of photos I picked from Unsplash which hopefully shows the variety and quality on offer. You can use the search function to bring up relevant photos or why not have a look at the curated collections to get some inspiration.
That’s all you need to do. Lovely photos and all for free! Now go and spice up your blogging and your social media.
