Photo banks

Often to fill a site with content or fish you need to search for images that match the subject. You can't just Google them because there is a risk of using copyrighted images. This is why you need to use photo banks.

In this article I'll just talk about the ones I use myself.


Unsplash

Photo Bank with images under a free license. You can safely download and use it.

Minuses:

  • The choice is not rich — the range of unpopular requests is quite small;
  • You can't select the size of the photo when downloading.

Pexels

Similar to the previous version, this photo Bank provides free images.

Positive:

  • You can also find videos on the same site;
  • There is a Russian version;
  • You can choose the size of the photo when downloading.

IconArchive

This is not a photo Bank, but a service where you can find a variety of icons.


That's all. It was short but this is all my tools.
I will be happy if you recommend other options in the comments (Except ShutterStock).
