Pixabay is another fantastic site to use for free stock images. With over 7 million high-resolution photos, it’s one of the biggest sites for free stock images on the web.

Unplash features over 400,000 free stock photos. There are so many images to choose from that you’re sure to find something you can use. We generally use Pexels or Pixabay more frequently, but if you can’t find what you’re looking for over there Unplash is another alternative. Like all of the above-mentioned sites, Unplash’s photos are licensed under the Creative Commons Zero (CC0) license.
We make use of stock footage to save time and effort. Taking personalized photography or hiring a professional photographer to do it can be time-consuming and costly, therefore to save time we like to use stock photography for things like blog posts, social media promotions, ad campaigns etc.
