In this post, I have listed all the best free stock photography sites that provide high-quality images and graphics. 


It’s my go-to site for photos since it’s also integrated into the Canva editor. Owned by Canva, Pexels is a free stock photography site that has more than 3 million photos in its library. They offer HD quality royalty and copyright-free photos for commercial use. Pexels also offers free 4k quality stock videos. 


Like Pexels, Unsplash also has a huge library of more than 3 million free stock photos and graphics. All free photos can be used commercially. Unsplash is the best free stock photography site for business use.


Pixabay has a lot of free stock photos, vector graphics, and illustrations. It also provides copyright-free videos, music, and even sound effects! (rain, whistles, thunder, crickets, etc) 

All the graphics are high quality and are free to use commercially.


Canva is a graphic designing site but it has a very unique variety of both free and paid stock photos for each purpose. They have millions of free graphics, illustrations, icons, vector graphics, and backgrounds for commercial use. 

They also have Pixabay and Pexels integrated into their apps for easy access. So, Canva can be a one-stop site for your free stock graphics needs.


The site is mostly known for its unique vector graphics but they also have free and paid images, and videos. Also, if you are on the look for some unique photos and don’t mind paying a small subscription to access millions of images and vectors, then Vecteezy is a pretty good and budget-friendly choice. 


Stocksnap.io has an HD variety of free photos that are more suited for lifestyle bloggers and content creators.


Like Pexels, they have a wide range of free stock photos that are royalty-free and can be used commercially. 


Freepik has a massive both free and paid library of images. They also have vector graphics, illustrations, templates, mockups, and other graphics as their premium content. 


Picjumbo offers a unique variety of free images. Their image collection is suited for lifestyle bloggers and other online content creators. But they also have a pretty diverse collection of images in other categories as well so they are well worth a check.


Foodiesfeed is a stock photography site for food bloggers and website owners. They have thousands of pretty, artistic, and unique food images that will satisfy all of your image needs. If you are a food blogger, you should definitely check them out!

Other free stock photo sites you should know about:

Honestly, in this day and age, there can be no shortage of stock images. 

Out of all, I like to use Canva for my stock image needs since I design my pins on canva and they provide thousands of icons, vector illustrations, templates, Pexels, and Pixabay under a single tab.

This way I don’t need to search for a photo elsewhere. But if don’t find what I am looking for, then these sites come in handy.

Well, that wraps up this post!
