Our Favourite Stock Image Sites

Finding the perfect stock images

How many hours have you spent trying to find the perfect stock image to accompany your brilliant blog or social media post? We’ve all been tempted to just give up and grab one off Google. (Please don’t do this – copyright infringement is a real thing. And so is the dent of a fine in your bank account.) That’s why we’re here to share some of our favourite stock image sites with you, our favourite people ?.

Pexels.com

We love the wide range of images that this site offers. Whatever you’re looking for, they’re bound to have a long page of options.

Unsplash.com

While Pexels has the upper hand on quantity, Unsplash slightly overtakes them with quality. Here you’ll find a slightly smaller range of images, but you’re likely to find better visuals.

Pixabay.com

You may find that some of the images on Pexels are repeated on Unsplash. That’s where Pixabay comes in. They have some lower quality images and irrelevant gifs in the mix, but you’ll find some gems that don’t feature on the other sites.

Librestock.com

This is a very user-friendly site with a beautiful layout that makes it easy and enjoyable to use. Librestock sources images from the huge array of other stock image sites. This way, you might stumble across a gem of a photo you might not have found any other way.

Google

Yes, you read that correctly. But once again, please don’t just save images off Google. Here’s what you need to do:
+ Perform your image search as usual
+ Click on tools, to the left of the All/Images/News tabs
+ Under Usage Rights, select “Labelled for Reuse”

 

There you have it! Now you know exactly where to find the perfect pictures to make your feed pop! And once you’ve got that sorted, head into Canva to make beautiful professional looking designs in a flash.
