Pexels – Use all photos wherever you want
It looks like a lot of folks are on a mission to put stock photography websites out of business. We published an article a while back showcasing 7 free stock photography, but more and more have popped up since. Some are not so great while others are fantastic.
Pexels.com is a new stock photography site that has over a thousand free stock photos that you can do whatever you want with. All photos are licensed under the Creative Commons Zero (CC0) license. This means you can copy, modify, distribute and perform the photos. The pictures are free for personal and even for commercial use. All without asking for permission or setting a link to the source. So attribution is not required. All in all the photos are completely free to be used for any legal purpose.
The CC0 license was released by the nonprofit organization Creative Commons. Get more information about the license on Pexels.com license page.
The site itself is very well designed and the photos are very high quality. The one you see above is from the site. Most of the images are also very high resolution so they’re perfect for retina displays too.
