Free Stock Image Collection for Your Blog
This is a Free Stock Image Collection, which you can use in any of your projects, without worries regarding Copyright.
As you might know, by taking images from Google, except for the filtered ones (see the article about Google images user rights) means breaking the Copyright law and in short terms, stealing.
Using filtered images from Google (labeled for reuse or labeled for reuse with modification) is a good option, but in many cases you will not be able to find what you are looking for. So, I’m coming with another solution – a free stock image collection which are royalty free – they can be used for commercial or noncommercial purposes without being necessary to mention the source or the author of the pictures.

This was a recommendation from a bloggerwizard reader. It is a pretty nice free public images collection, many of them being from pretty good to very good. I also liked the categories of the photos even if I wish there to be more.

All photos published on Unsplash are licensed under Creative Commons Zero which means you can copy, modify, distribute and use the photos, even for commercial purposes, all without asking permission from or providing attribution to the photographer or Unsplash. The cool thing about this source is that they update the website with 10 new photos every 10 days.

Here you can also find texture and patterns – all free to use without any strings attached (they are public domain). Many of the images are made by amateurs, but you never know what you are going to need for the next project.

Clipart, Patterns and Illustrations:
They have a big variety of clipart that can be used even for “unlimited commercial use”.
Public Domain Clip Art (Link)
A very big collection of FREE clipart and frames, organized by category.
Here you can also find a great original clipart collection. I find this website to be pretty crowded, but not so hard to make it through.
I like it because it has a building image editor and after choosing your desired clipart, you can edit it on spot.

Here you can find a nice collection of very pretty patterns that you can use on backgrounds or for any other purpose. The collection is not too big, but I love the presentation and the fact that you can see how it looks on a full page.

Illustrations: Old Design Shop (Link)
This is a great collection of free illustrations, mostly vintage. This can give you so many ideas. The resolution of the Illustrations is pretty big, so you can also print them out and use them in your business.

A blog article with the right images delivers the message to the reader 100% better than an unfriendly block of text. You know how they say “a picture’s worth 1000 words”.
I recommend you to bookmark this page and come back anytime you need free stock images for your projects!
I guarantee that you will find what you are looking for or even more. Don’t forget that most of the links are upgraded with new photos daily or every seven to ten days.
Good luck with your projects!
