I’m sure you’ve noticed our blogs are brimming with photos. In the past, these photos could be hard to come by. We either had to dig through the internet looking for license-free photos, or purchase photos through various websites.
We recently discovered the wonderful world of Unsplash.com and in the event you haven’t used it, we wanted to share it with you. Create a free account and you’ll instantly have a growing library of over 1.5 million photos to choose from!
The best part? They’re all free! And it sounds like they always will be. According to this Tech Crunch article, the company has no future plans to start charging for photos, a move CEO Mikael Cho says risks “stalling creativity.”
The website claims over 110,00 photographers have contributed their work to the website, meaning you should have no problem finding that perfect picture for your website, next blog post or presentation.
Something of a photographer yourself? Pay it forward! Once your account is created, Unsplash allows users to upload photos of their own that can be downloaded and used by others in the Unsplash community.
Next time you’re looking for that perfect photo for your next presentation, give Unsplash a try. I think you’ll be glad you did!
