Today I am bringing you another resource of royalty free images that you can add to your arsenal.I have already published a collection of my top sites in a previous post.

 

Pexels – Free Stock Images & Videos for Websites

 

 

Website: Pexels

 

All images at Pexels are free to use both for personal and commercial purposes under the Creative Commons (CC0) license.Right now there are about 5,000 photos to choose from but they will be adding 600 photos every month.

There is an option to upload your own photos or donate to help the site moving forward, but that totally depends on you, no attribution is necessary whatsoever.

 

You can browse new images on their front page by scrolling down.Additionally, you can use the search function or the categories section.

Categories

  • Nature – Beach – Flower
  • Black & White – Cities
  • Dog – Deserts, Cars
  • Christmas – People – Business
  • Landscape – Winter – Technology
  • Sunset – Desktop wallpapers

and more…

 

Some of the images come from other stock sites, like Unsplash or Pixabay.Some belong to their users and uploaders.

 

Every image names the resource and there are various dimensions available to choose from.You can even set your own preferences.

If you subscribe to their bi-monthly newsletter you will receive 40 exclusive photos.

Free Stock Videos

 

Many of the videos in that department come from Coverr.They are awesome and they can be used either as header’s background loop or as part of your video mixes.But they deliver videos from other sources as well.

The list is pretty extended, I was not expecting that and there is an option to select from their categories.

Pexels Blog

 

Topics like

  • CSS Clip Path Demos – Clip path is a CSS3 feature…
  • Pexels 2.0 – How Pexels got started one year ago …
  • Inspiring video headers and more…

 

The Design Break

 

The slogan here says …”Take a break from work”…

Games For Designers – An Arcade-Like Version 

  • Shoot the Sheriff – shoot only the sheriff fonts…Cool, 3 on 3 right shots but run out of time … damn
  • The Bezier game – to master the pen tool – Terrible loss…I need to improve
  • The rather difficult typo game
  • What the Hex?
  • Logo design quiz – Very difficult, I had to guess companies names by seeing logos…No way
  • Pixactly

Random Inspiration

 

The scientific 7-minute workout.This is a very entertaining feature.You watch a vector element silhouette doing exercises that may inspire you and do the same.

Random UX Myths – Graphics will make a page element more visible and more.This is like a micro blog.

Documentaries for Designers

Dictionary of design slang – Terms like “Above the fold”, “Brainstorm session”, “Do whatever you want”

What color is it? … Here they display a color number (eg…#045749), it counts down and the color on your screen changes to show you the corresponding one.Very nice, as you are getting familiar with the codes.

 

Funny Videos

I picked this one …“If Google was a guy”

 

 

 

Indeed this Design Break section is very well constructed.I am sure designers will have fun along the way.

 

 

Pexels API

 

If you are interested in getting access to their API in order to integrate their photos you can contact them via email.There are instructions on their settings and restrictions.

 

 

Final Words

 

 

Pexels has become one of my favorite destinations.Plenty of images and videos.What else would you be waiting for?…

I hope you will enjoy their collection…Waiting for your comments and thoughts.Till next time, your online partner.

    Thanks for this, another site for free stock images website to add to my list.

    i used to pay for images from a premium image site called Fotolia but as time passed,my blog grew and I started branding my images using Canva.

    It was at this point that I decided that free stock images would save me a bit of money as I’m now able to “spice up” the free ones.

    Thanks again.

      Of course Lee , take advantage of the free online resources first , and then pay for the extra photos you might need.Fotolia is a superb directory but free ones are tempting.

      Don’t forget to check Pexels video area as well.Good luck with your site.

    Thanks for writing about this. Images are so important for websites to draw in and engage readers. I have never heard of Pixels before, but it seems like a wonderful addition for my list of image sites. I will definitely be adding that to my list, as well as bookmarking this page for reference. Great job!

    I also use Pixabay a lot because their photo quality is great and it is also for free. You can also check out Google images, but make sure that you choose the “labelled for reuse” option under search tools.

    I have never tried Pexels before and would like to test them out some time. For the website that I am now working on, I am mostly using screenshots that I take from the products that I review.

      Nice to see you back Vijoen.Pixabay is great too.I avoid using Google generic searches on images because there is always a possibility for a mistake.I only use websites that offer CC0 royalty free images.Just to be sure.And screenshots are essential if you are writing reviews.

      Thank you for this visit and for taking the time to drop by with a comment.
