More than one source
None of the sites that offer copyright free images have everything we need or looking for. So if we consider getting them from more than one source, we’ll have a better chance of finding the image we may need.
This is, I guess, my personal favorite. Search function is available for high-quality images.
I’ve been using this site since I learned what copyright means, and I’ve always found the picture I need. What’s more convenient is that the site allows downloading images in different resolutions. This saves me time in editing or resizing.

I believe every blog post about copyright free images loves to include Unsplash.
They seriously have stunning images and they have a “do whatever you want” thing with their collection. Also licensed under Creative Common Zero, which can be used without attribution to the authors.
Images are downloaded to its highest resolution available, so resizing is done manually.
Aside from images, they also have vectors, and art illustrations to offer.
Like Pexels and Unsplash, they also offer a no attribution required for their images. However, should you wish to support the photographer/artist, you may donate through PayPal which they termed as ‘Coffee’. So if you click on the coffee button on a particular picture, you’ll be redirected to a PayPal payment screen.
The images are also high-quality and is under CC0.

I linked that image to his PayPal donate page should you feel like showing him your appreciation.
The images are stunning and high-quality. I got to admit, there’s one time I spent half a day on their site just looking for pictures out of amazement.
The site’s layout is direct to the point, you want images, you get it. So far, I liked every pictures in their collection.
All images are also under the Creative Commons Zero license, so no attribution or asking of permission needed to use the images.
Their site is trendy and cool, picture collection is really stunning.
The site has a very simple search function and they also offer free videos!
Their images are also under the CC0 license, they can be used for both personal and commercial use. 🙂
Salute to the guys/gals behind the concept of “free use”, they’re making this world a better place. 😀
