If you’re in charge of managing content for a website, social media, or newsletter, you know how important quality images are to getting the attention of your readers. And you also know how difficult it can be to find quality images on a tight budget.
When it comes to image resources, “too much is never enough” So here are a few links to sites that offer free images for use under public domain or Creative Commons licenses (click on the link for details about what CC is all about).
Over 110,000 contributing photographers who generate more than 11 billion photo impressions per month on their growing library of over 1.5 million photos.
Public domain photography, including textures and abstracts
Clever high-resolution photographs by Ryan McGuire of Bells Design (make sure to view his site in “Adorable Mode!”)
A couple hundred nifty icons to spice up ho-hum layouts
A nice collection of textures you can use to layer for dramatic effects
Thank you to all the creatives who have generously shared their work!
