Top free stock websites

The internet is a vast ocean- you can find inspiration there and also, some striking stock images for free. While it does not cost money but it does consume time and energy.

Whether you are a professional designer or not, these sources for stock images and icons are one of the best out there and will help with resourcing and researching for any and all themes.  Toronto Web Design Company

Here is a shortlist of best free stock image websites-

  1. Unsplash

With over 180,000 photographers contributing to the website, you’re sure to find exactly what you’re looking for and more here. What makes the site great is its easy to use search functions and API for connecting to third party apps and websites. The only downside is that due to its popularity, finding images that have never been used before is almost impossible.

  1. Pexels

Pexel is second on the list but definitely shows more promise in the diversity section- owing to the 28 languages it operates in. It also has plugins and a slight change in the keywords shows up a completely different set of pictures. Like we said- DIVERSITY at its finest.

One of the downsides is the images looking too “stock” but it can be avoided with a little more searching than usual.

  1. Pixaby

Its not higher on the list due to the relevancy and quality not being able to match that of the first and second ones but it is easy to use with thousands of images which can be used for various themes. It is available in 26 languages and features illustrations, vectors, videos, and music too. It sports a wide range of connectivity with plugins and apps.

 

  1. Stocksnap

Personally, Stocksnap deserves to be higher on the list but it would be ironic considering it has made its way onto the list due to it being not as popular as the above mentioned websites.

The lack of popularity makes Stocksnap a big assemblage of originality on the uniqueness front. Also, the site publicly displays views, likes and downloads giving a real time idea of how often the image might be sued and how unique it is on the internet.

A major downside is the way sponsored images are subtly put in to invade the search results. There is also a very widely felt absence of API and third party apps.
