25 Places to Find Free (and legal) Photos for Your Blog

Where can you find free, good quality images that are cleared to use for your blog posts or social media content? I find myself asking this question a lot! Finding good looking and relevant photos for the posts on She Owns It can be exhausting!

So, what do you do if you want to keep it legal but don’t have an iStock budget?

Below we’ve compiled a list of sites that will help you make your blog or social media feed look great, at absolutely no cost!

So what resources are you using for stock photography? We’d love to know your favorite or sites we missed. Let us know in the comments!

    Should you be looking for thousands of graphic images then http://www.blogpiks.com/ would be a smart choice. I present high quality stock images for free.

    Hi Melissa – Thank you for sharing this list. Of these, I like using Life of Pix and Unsplash. But you have many here that I was not aware of. The Vintage Images on the Public Domain Archive are fascinating. One that is not on your list that I like using is Public Domain Pictures (http://www.publicdomainpictures.net/). And of course Canva has all kinds of free images – including icons and illustrations as well as photos – right in their platform.

    I’m always looking for places to get free, legal photos. I use Pixabay and Dreamstime for images but I will definitely check out the sites you mentioned here. Where did you get this information?
