The best source for FREE stock photos

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

It’s hard to believe that not everyone has heard of this site, but it’s true. The Stock.Xchng free stock photography site must be the best-kept secret of the web! I first learned about it in college, from the professor that taught my Photoshop class. Since then, it has become an indispensable resource for me, and I’ve even contributed a few of my own photos to the site.

Any photographer or designer – amateur, pro, or in-between – can submit their images, which Stock.Xchng screens before approving them to be shared with the community.  Contributors can allow open use of their image, or require notification and/or credit if the photo is used in a public work.

The URL for Stock.Xchng is super-short and easy to remember: sxc.hu (‘hu’ because it is based in Hungary). The awesome images below are just a few examples of what you can find there. Check it out – the Stock.Xchng!
