Nowadays, it’s not only easy to find images to fill up your website or your blog, for printing purposes, social media, emails and any other medium – sites which host these free images are mushrooming at a very interesting rate. The amount of images on just a single site which are being contributed by various photographers are just phenomenal. These sites present the images in various popular categories which are frequently updated and the most interesting part of all is the license. A big majority of them carry a Creative Commons Zero (CC0) license which means you can copy, modify, distribute and use the photos for free, including commercial purposes. Some of them even allow users to forgo attribution as long as the license is being honored. Nonetheless attribution is always encouraged but not compulsory.
