Whether you’re always scouring for copyright free images, music, or just general creative inspiration, we’ve got you covered.

Let’s kick things off with copyright free image sites:

Unsplash

One of the largest photography suppliers on the internet. ‘Unsplash is a website dedicated to sharing copyright-free photography under the Unsplash license.

The website claims over 65,000 contributing photographers and generates an estimated 4 billion photo impressions per month. Unsplash has been cited as one of the world’s leading photography websites by Forbes.’

Freerange Stock

Freerange Stock was formed with the goal to provide quality stock photos for commercial and non-commercial use, for free. Images on the site are either shot by Freerange Stock, drawn from Freerange archives, or contributed by a talented community of photographers.

Pexels

Pexels state: ‘It’s hard to understand complex licenses. That is why all photos on Pexels are licensed under the Creative Commons Zero (CC0) license. This means the pictures are completely free to be used for any legal purpose.’

  • The pictures are free for personal and even for commercial use.
  • You can modify, copy and distribute the photos.
  • All without asking for permission or setting a link to the source. So, attribution is not required.

‘Life of Pix offers high-resolution photographs with no copyright restrictions. The photographs were contributed by Montreal-based Leeroy Advertising Agency and its network of photographers. To date, the site contains close to 600 images. Life of Pix also has a sister site, Life of Vids, that provides access to public domain videos.’
