7 sites for free stock images for small businesses

It’s hard to beat original content and images when attracting new customers, but sometimes things get busy and there isn’t time to create the image you need. In those situations, it’s good to have a few sites like with high-quality, free stock images and graphics to use as you need.

We’ve pulled together seven go-to sites for free stock images. These are great, high-quality sources with files large enough for moderately sized printing. They’re great for promotions, branding, blogging, website background images, and more.

With no further ado, and in no particular order:

Gratisography

Gratisography is a good resource if you’re looking for outside-the-box, creative photos with a healthy dose of playfulness and nonsensicality. These images are great for stopping people in their tracks, making a point, and just about any other fun kind of use you can imagine.

Pexels

Pexels has an abundance of images, well tagged and searchable, and they add images frequently. They have images ranging from automotive to nature, fashion, and style, as well as food and hospitality. There is no shortage of options on Pexels.

Unsplash

Unsplash has some of the most artistic everyday use images. They also cover a wide variety of categories, but with a certain flair for beauty. Several of the photos they offer would look just as good in a frame on the wall as they will in your marketing and branding. They have images ranging from the Aurora Borealis to beautiful top-down, flat lay photos waiting for your messaging and promotion.

Burst

Burst is great for the industry-specific user. From exercise to jewelry, Burst offers a very curated and beautiful supply of images for general or specific use. What we love most about Burst is their Tips and Ideas links at the top. Not everything will apply to small and local businesses, but it provides a beautiful gallery of ideas. It’ll get your creative juices going, especially if you’re feeling a bit stumped.

FoodiesFeed

FoodiesFeed is dedicated to—you guessed it—food. It’s not a huge library, but it’s packed with fresh, professional looking photos of food, preparations, party settings, and more. Perfect for augmenting meal images at restaurants, cafes, bars, and lounges.

ISORepublic

One thing we’ve found as we’ve scrolled through multiple free stock photo websites is a bit of repetition. It’s not surprising when considering the nature of common licensing of these images. ISORepublic, on the other hand, has a great set of images that are categorical, but not typical. It leans a bit more abstract and has a great swath of active, exploration, and adventure photos. If you’re not finding the stock images you need on other sites, this one may have the gold nugget you need.
