The Best Free Stock Photography Websites

The Best Free Stock Photography Websites


Shutterstock has a free file every week and they usually pick pretty good photos.


PhotoDune is one of the newer stock photo websites but they have a free photo download every month. Unlike buying a photo, the free download doesn't get saved into your account downloads so be sure to keep a backup!


Three free downloads every month! Simply click on the "Free Images" link on the bottom of their website.


A microstock subscription site by the popular Getty Images! As you can guess, their photos are high quality stock photos and you can download a free one every week. The free photo link is located on the homepage after you login.

Big Stock Photos

Bigstock has a free image download weekly.


Crestock also has free stock photos that they give away.


To download the free download, you'll need to login first. The link can be found on the homepage after you login.


Lightstock the best website for faith-focused stock photography. There is a new free image download every week.


Another website that offers a free weekly download. The free downloads can be found on the bottom-half of the page.

  1. Me and my friend are amateur photographers (although we do some paid work every now and then) and we have created this website

    We believe in free culture and we are going to post all our photos in full resolution on our website and can be used under following creative commons license.
    That means you can
    remix, transform, and build upon the material
    for any purpose, even commercially.
    100% free of cost.

    We have just started this project and within months there will be thousands of photos available.
    If you like our work and want to promote free culture then please spread the word to everyone who might want to build upon our work.
    If everything goes right then our plan is to recruit more like minded photographers and make this site really rich with 100% free stock photos
    Thank you for supporting us

    Kind regards,


  2. There is also part of the new and growing Symbiostock network of experienced independent stock image artists. Currently 130 members and over 170,000 images both increasing every day.

  3. I prefer pixabay and morguefile over the others because all the photos are public domain. Other "free" places have restrictions on how the photos can be used, which defeats the purpose of the whole thing. You can also check out my site for thousands of photos I've released into the public domain.

  4. Thanks a lot for the info. I am sure i can get few of the required images from above sites.
    We also use a website called
    If you are a website designer, blogger here you can download high resolution Free stock images for free.

  5. Not sure why "dreams time" is on any list? Personally, I found nothing FREE! And I will never purchase any images from these companies, advertising "LARGEST SELECTION OF FREE STOCK IMAGES"

  6. I use Freerange Stock all the time - they have a LOT more than 700 images... over 25,000 from what I can tell.

  7. should be at the top of this list! Relatively new, it is an amazing resource for anyone looking for quality images...

  8. Please show this to your tutorial authors so that they can stop using deviantart. Too many broken deviantart links everywhere
