Free Open Source Images

Search for Open Source Images

If you don’t find any images you like on Google, don’t despair. Turn to one of the Internet’s many photo-sharing sites instead. Three of the best sites for open source images include PixabayMorgueFile, and Unsplash.

Pixabay and MorgueFile have a search feature that can help you find images. On Unsplash, the photos aren’t tagged, so you can only search by scrolling through. Alternatively, you can subscribe to their email newsletter and get 10 photos every 10 days.

Google

Start by going to images.google.com. Next, click on the “Settings” link in the lower right-hand corner and choose “Advanced Search” from the pop-up menu. You may have to sign into your Google account to get this to work.

In the top four fields of the Advanced Search options, you can enter specific parameters for the kind of images you want. For the purposes of image sourcing, it’s the very last field to concern yourself with.

Usage Rights

This field is labeled “usage rights.” If you click on the drop-down menu, it will give you several options:

  • Not filtered by license
  • Free to use or share
  • Free to use or share, even commercially
  • Free to use, share, or modify
  • Free to use, share, or modify, even commercially

You’ll want to choose one of the “free to use or share” options. This will tell Google Images to send you those pictures you can use royalty-free.
