I could not recommend a better website for free photos. There is a huge selection, great variety, categories, and search tools to help you explore. You can sign up and create collections if you want but it isn’t necessary to sign up. Downloading is free and unlimited.
Check out their license statement:
All photos published on Unsplash can be used for free. You can use them for commercial and noncommercial purposes. You do not need to ask permission from or provide credit to the photographer or Unsplash, although it is appreciated when possible.https://unsplash.com/license
More precisely, Unsplash grants you an irrevocable, nonexclusive, worldwide copyright license to download, copy, modify, distribute, perform, and use photos from Unsplash for free, including for commercial purposes, without permission from or attributing the photographer or Unsplash. This license does not include the right to compile photos from Unsplash to replicate a similar or competing service.
If you see a photo on In Via Lex that isn’t tagged “personal photography” then 98% of the time it came from Unsplash. I’d love to create a shoutout page to credit artist’s photos I’m using but the list would be huge. Perhaps I’ll settle on trying to add credits to photo descriptions.
Make an account– or not. The choice is yours. Go forth and bring art to the world.
