Updated: Mar 4, 2021
Do you struggle with finding impactful images for your social posts? Want to create a really stunning website, but your own images are just not quite enough on their own?
Well there are some great websites that where you can get free images and videos of all kinds to use on your social media and website.
I wanted to share with you the three websites that I find most useful when looking for free stock imagery and videos for social media and websites. I hope you find them helpful too!
UnSplash is usually my first go to for images, they offer a wide variety of images relating to absolutely anything you could possibly think of. They have over 2 million high-res images that are completely free to use.
Pixabay offers photos, illustrations, vectors, videos and music clips, again all free to use under Pixabays licence. This is a great way to add video to your content if you’re worried about doing it yourself.
Pexels also offers photos and video to be used for free. I love that they have an option to search images by colour as well. Great for when you’re wanting a striking image to go with your brand colours.
All the above are free to use under their own licences, no attribution is required for any of these (but are welcomed), and you can use these as a starting point to make your own creations. You can add your own branding to them, wording, animations. The options are endless, so get creative and have fun hunting for you new images and videos to spice up your social media and website!
