    I found this great website for free photos

    Came across this today, a website where they release 10 free photos every week, really high quality ones, that you can use with no restrictions at all:

    What's interesting as well is the company behind it originally treated it as an afternoon side project, but they talked in a blog post about how in the end it turned out to be their #1 source of traffic to their proper business, and the type of people using it (web designers and mobile developers) were their target audience anyway. So I thought that was a super cool insight -- also because I was wondering what was in it for them and if there was a catch!

    Really great... Thanks for sharing...

    Just wondering...

    Is it okay to use these photos in a website?

    I'm afraid they will sue someone for legal issues..

    Just wondering though..

    It says on the license page that the photos are licensed under Creative Commons Zero, so it should be fine to use them anywhere: https://unsplash.com/license

    Internally, we've compiling a list of free stock sites (including Unsplash, which is one of our favorites) to use on lower-budget projects and for our clients to use . We're up to 83 different sources, and just recently polished the list up a bit and published it on our blog. I'm sharing it here in hopes that it might be helpful to anyone looking for other free stock sources. While the list is rather long we did single out a handful of our favorites so they're no need to dig though them all to find the real gems.

    Hope this is useful - I'd love to hear about any other stock sources we might have missed:

    Unsplash's photos are all licensed under CC0, which means you can use them for just about anything. The sites in the post I linked are also mostly cc0, and those that aren't still allow for commercial use. It's always a good idea to double-check the terms and conditions of the site you're downloading from to make sure you're allowed to use their photos the way you want.

    Bookmarked, thanks khenney!!! Thats super useful!

    One I've used a lot before is ImageAfter: Image * After - currently 28262 free textures and images available

    This website is less blog-ready high-quality photography, and more raw source material. You have to put a bit more work into editing it for what you need, but there's LOTs of content, and photos of all sorts of obscure things.
