As an entrepreneur who wants to succeed online, you must definitely pay attention to your designs. The photos you use for your designs can make or break the message you’re trying to convey to your audience. Moreover, it’s never advisable to use just any photo you find on Google which may have copyright restrictions on them.
Although we published an earlier post on the best free stock photography websites you can use for your business, we look at some more sites in this post to provide you with a well-rounded list.

It is important to note that while many of these sites provide photos free from copyright restrictions, some of their photos require attribution. In this post, we’ve indicated which license each site falls under, but it’s important you do your own research.
Here are 8 more of the best stock photography websites to use.
Burst (by Shopify)
Burst provides stock photography mainly for entrepreneurs to help them make better designs for their products, websites, and marketing campaigns. Some photos are under Creative Commons Zero while others are under Shopify’s own license. You can find photos of anything related to business as well as general photos.
Reshot is home to an enormous library of carefully selected stock photos that are one of a kind. The photos are tailored towards startups, freelancers, and creators who are fed up with cheesy online photos. They are also free to use without the need for attribution.
Pixabay boasts a collection of over 1 million free images and counting, for download. They are licensed under Creative Commons Zero, which means you don’t have to attribute to the artist when using images (though it’s a kind gesture).
Unlike most stock photography websites, Kaboompics operates its own license that is similar to Creative Commons Zero and prevents you from redistributing its photos. You can search for photos by colour and access palettes of colours in the photo.
Free Images is another site that provides free stock photography under its own license. The license ensures that the site can be used by a broad range of users. However, it does list several restricted use cases.

Picography offers beautiful free stock images by Dave Meier and various other photographers. Every photograph is released under Creative Commons CC0.
