Top 5 Free High Resolution Image Resources for Your Presentation Design

 Using photos when designing our presentation work is mandatory. However, when we came across various websites around the internet looking for the right photo with high resolution, we often encountered stock photo websites that are not giving their photos free for commercial use. It is quite hard since we required to pay for the photos or giving attribution to the photographer.
 
But, with the current trends of the new business model in photography, there is also a lot of free stock photos we can find on the internet. And of course, these resources are free for commercial use. Here we provide our top 5 free resources of stock photos we often use when designing our presentation.
 
 

1. Pexels

 
License : Creative Common Zero
Assets : Photos, Videos
 
Founded in 2014, Pexels has become one of the largest free image stock on the internet. Pexels provides high-quality stock photos and all of the photos here are nicely tagged, Pexels makes these photos are easy to discover through their search engine. Since Pexels licensed under the Creative Common Zero (CC0) license, the photos provided here are completely free for commercial use.
 
If we pay a visit to the Pexels license web page, it is pretty straightforward and clear of what we can do when using Pexels photos. Here are some screenshots we took on the Pexels license page.
 
 
 
 As we can see above, we are not allowed to make any change that considered offensive in any way. Also re-selling their photos implicitly not allowed.
 
 

2. Pixabay

 

License: Creative Common Zero
Assets: Photos, Videos, Illustration, Vector
 
When we doing our illustration works, Pixabay is one of the best resources since Pixabay provides various assets including illustration and vector. However, the quality of the photos provided by Pixabay is not good as Pexels since some of the photos are not high resolution.
 

Pixabay licensing is similar to Pexels. We are allowed to use Pixabays photos for both personal and commercial use, even modification. And of course, we are not allowed to resell Pixabays photos.
 
 

3. Unsplash

 

License: Creative Common Zero
Assets: Photos, Videos, Illustration, Vector
 
When we are opening the Unsplash website, you can look at the top portion of the webpage and see the categorization there.
 
Unsplash was created in 2013. According to Wikipedia, ‘Unsplash has been cited as one of the world’s leading photography websites by Forbes, Entrepreneur Magazine, CNET, medium, and The Next Web’, make Unsplash is leading in the stock photo industry. Their photos are often used by various large companies if we notice.
 

Pretty self-explanatory licensing here. It is similar to Pexels and Pixabays all around.
 
 

4. Pxhere

 

License : Creative Common Zero
Assets : Photos, Videos
 
Another good CC0 hi-res photo resources. The only cons here is required to login to download the photos.
 

 

5. Free Images

 

License: Creative Common Zero
Assets: Photos, Videos, Illustration, Vector
 
Considered one of the oldest photo stock on the internet which was founded in 2001.
Even though it has been 19 years the website live, the photos here still one of the stock photos you should consider when you are looking for your right photo.
 
The cons here are some of their photos are not in hi-res and most of the vectors and illustrations are outdated regarding the current trends in graphic design.
