Graphic images are a great way to add flare, create deeper connection, and simply make things easier to read in your marketing material.

The good news is that there are several online sites that offer free graphic images that you can use or modify for commercial use.  Some of these sites require you to list credit for the artist, while others don’t.

One of my favorite sites to find free graphic images that I can use for my commercial business marketing is Pixabay.

site for free graphic images

Per Wikipedia, “On Pixabay, users can find and contribute quality images and footage films free of copyrights. For uploading files and downloading full sized images, a free registration is required. By uploading files, the contributors waive their copyright and related image rights under Creative Commons deed CC0, thus permitting free usage of their work. Consequently, anyone is allowed to use, modify and redistribute the images freely – even in commercial applications – without asking for permission and without accreditation.”

You can search by size, orientation, color, or key words.

Simply find what you like then download them to your computer.  It is ideal to download in a large size that you can then edit for multiple use.

Though free, the site will pop up messages to “buy a coffee” that allows you to donate to the artists.  If you use the site a lot, it might be nice to periodically pay it back.

Happy photo searching!
