Finding license free photos on the internet can be difficult. Many good pictures are not free or not usable for commercial purposes – looking for good ones that are free to use can get exhausting. Therefore, we decided to show you our 5 favourite websites for free images that you can use for PowerPoint presentations (or for anything else).

1. Unsplash

Unsplash is an amazing resource for high-quality images, which can be used for private or commercial purposes and can even be modified. Pictures are distributed by photographers all around the world. Even though crediting isn’t required, it is very much appreciated and a way for the artist to gain more prominence.

2. Pexels

The Pexels-License is simple – you can edit photos as you like and use them for all purposes. Crediting is not required. We adore this resource for its huge variety of categories and professionally shot images.

3. Freerange

Freerange images are distributed by their “in-house”-photographers or by the community. Just like the previously mentioned ones, it is free for non-commercial as well as commercial use – attribution not necessary. You can find all kinds of content in the photos, and the amount grows every day.

4. Creative Commons

CC is a giant network that was built to provide content that is free to use. They provide public licenses and a feature for searching pictures – where you can choose if you want something for commercial purposes, something that can be modified, or both.

5. Pixabay

Pixabay provides tons of pictures (photographs and also great illustrations!) and even videos. They’re being shared by a community. To use Pixabay’s content you do not need permission, and it is free to use for all purposes. Pictures and Videos can be changed and adapted as you would like.

6.PikWizard

PikWizard holds a large library of free and paid stock images and videos. The are images for which you need to pay for are labeled with "Premium". For the free images no attribution is required. What's cool is that you can directly edit the images on the site without the need to download.
