Selecting the Best Free Stock Photography Websites

Article by John Parks

When looking for good free stock photography websites, there are several factors to keep in mind. Many companies offer excellent stock photographs that are available for download for free or for a minimal fee. However, not all stock photography websites are designed the same. Some of the important features to look for when searching for a free stock photography website include: an easy to use search engine, the size and resolution of the photographs available, how the photographs are licensed, how often is the site updated, and which photographers are showcased.

Easy use to search engineHaving an easy to use search engine is an essential characteristic of the best free stock photography websites. A large collection of the best photographs is of little use if you can’t find the type of images you need. Some of the best sites include keyword searches that allow you to quickly identify the photographs most suited to your needs.

Size and resolution of available photographsSome stock photography websites offer free images that are relatively small. Depending on your particular needs, you may need larger photographs. In some cases, it is worth it to pay a small per use fee or even a monthly subscription fee to have access to a wide variety of large, high resolution, good quality images.

Types of licensingStock photographs can be licensed in a number of ways. For example, royalty-free photographs typically mean that the image can be used in a number of ways without having to pay further royalties. However, royalty free is not synonymous with free and some websites may charge a one-time fee or a monthly subscription fee for the use of these images. Rights-managed images, on the other hand, specify the ways in which the image can be used. For example, a rights-managed image may be restricted in certain geographic areas or may only be used during a certain period of time. Extended rights images are yet another alternative where the client can purchase the right to use the image multiple times with no time limit for use. The best option will depend on your needs. For example, if you need several images, it may be worthwhile to consider purchasing a monthly subscription that permits the use of multiple images with an extended rights option.

How often is the webpage updated?The best free stock photography websites will be updated frequently. This is important because it means there are fresh images available for use. New and innovative images will draw attention, while overused images will have the opposite effect.

Who are the photographers?Finally, when selecting the best free stock photography website you may consider who the photographers are. Well-known photographers produce high quality, striking images. However, much can also be said for amateur photographers and up and coming artists. One interesting twist on stock photography is offered by where amateur photographers submit images to meet specifications provided by the client.

The best free stock photography websites will meet these basic criteria, allowing you to select from a number of high quality images while staying within your budget.
