Regardless of your purpose, profession or the type of business you are running, it is really never a bad idea to have some stock photography sites at your disposal, especially if you are in the marketing or online business world. However, you can’t just use any photo you see on the web, there are some rules here and you need to learn how to respect these rules and know exactly what photos are suitable for you to use.

In this article, we are going to present you some of the best and most reliable websites for you to use, but before that let’s talk about the rules first. Before you decide to use a certain photo you need to ask yourself – how free is free? Well, there are some websites that allow you to download and use photos for private purposes only, for instance, for background wallpapers, and etc. and you can’t use these photos for business purposes, for your website, marketing campaigns, business cards, posters, and etc. The websites we are going to present you are fully composed or support CC0 photos available in the public domain. The owners of these photos have allowed users to edit, modify, and use their photos without copyright backlash.

There are a few important terms you should know about:

Royalty Free: This means you can use the photos without having to pay license fees or royalties. – Creative Commons: You can use these photos for free since the creator has waived their official rights to their work. We highly recommend you to read the terms and conditions of these photos, before you decide to download them and use them.

Public Domain: If any photo was created in the USA prior 1923, then those photos are part of the public domain which means that you are allowed to use these photos, edit, copy, modify, and distribute without any permission.

Commercial Use: You are allowed to use royalty-free photos for any type of business.

Attribution: You can use these photos as long as you give attribution to the author. – Membership: You must register or sign up to the website if you want to use the royalty free photos. There are websites that may charge for membership.

The internet is the best place where you can find high-quality free royalty images, however, as we said before, you can’t just use any website or photos you want. Now that you are familiar with the rules, you know the terms, and you know what they mean, we can present you some of the best websites that can offer you high-resolution and high-quality images.
