Free Pictures for Your Class or Personal Use

I am quite positive I am not alone in my struggle to find high quality, free images. Many sites advertise free images, but without fail they are not free. There is either some sort of catch, or a charge appears on the screen preceding a download. It is especially hard to teach students about copyright and appropriate selection when there is not a reliable place to send them on their search.

Over the last few months,  Pixabay has solved my problem. I am obsessed. Pixabay is a great place to find reliable images, attribution free. Each image can be altered, and if necessary, used for commercial purposes. Pixabay is fantastic for my personal writing. Pixabay is also great for students to use on projects or videos.

Pixabay is easy and it works. No strings attached. Don't take my word for it. Try Pixabay.

Over 340,000 free photos, vectors and art illustrations

Finding free images of high quality is a tedious task - due to copyright issues, attribution requirements, or simply the lack of quality. This inspired us to create Pixabay - a repository for stunning public domain pictures. Your source for free vectors, free drawings and free photos. You can use any Pixabay image without attribution in digital and printed form, even for commercial applications.
