Shutterstock and iStock are undoubtedly excellent sources for stock photography, and probably the most popular among designers. But, there’s also a growing number of exceptional free photo resources out there. Although we do subscribe to the big companies, we frequently take advantage of these free resources, too. In fact, in many cases, especially with our magazine and editorial design work, we find photos from the free sites that are more suitable in their artistic beauty. There are many free resources today, but these are our favorites for their beautiful, versatile selections. You might be surprised at what you’ll find here.
