Interesting? Why don't you share it?
Images are crucial for web engagement, but selecting the right one can be challenging.

With a collection of high-quality, free stock image websites, this task becomes easier. Before hiring a graphic designer, we frequently used the image sites listed here and bookmarked them all. Now, you can use them too!

Stock Image License Types
There are five main types of image licensing to consider:

Royalty Free – Pay once and use the image without ongoing royalties.
Creative Commons – Usually free with various types of usage permissions.
Attribution – Free to use but requires crediting the creator.
Commercial Use – Paid images for business and online store use.
Public Domain – No licensing restrictions, free for any use.

These are the most common licensing types you’ll encounter.
Now, let’s get to the list!
