49 Astonishing Websites to Get Free Stock Photos for Your Blog or Social Media

Stop Your Search For High-Quality Photos Now!

Paul Knulst  in  Blog Apr 15, 2022 2 min read

For me, one of the most time-consuming tasks while writing an article is finding a suitable free stock photo. As I started writing articles it was very difficult for me to find suitable photos and it took me very long to find a good resource.

Within my first articles, I just used images that I created on my own or “screenshotted” my source code to have some IT-related header images.

Unfortunately, today every reader is used to seeing high-quality stock photos, and not having one in my article downgrades it before people start reading it.

The reason for that is:

The first impression counts.

And the first impression a possible reader gets from my article is the title and the image.

So that's why I searched for several hours over the last months to have multiple websites that provide these high-quality stock photos that I can use in my blog articles.

I saved every website that I found and now I have 49 astonishing websites that I want to share with every fellow writer.
