Question: Where can I find free stock photos of ............ Answer: at www.FreeImages.co.uk

Free images is a high quality resource of digital stock photography for use by all. All images in our collection are free to use on websites, printed materials and anywhere you need photos for illustration and design use. Terms of image use apply.

Freeimages is part of a network of free stock photography related resources:

  • Freeimages.co.uk was the original site and contains our main library of images.

  • Freeimageslive.co.uk contains images that users have taken themselves and contributed to the site,
    these are available for use under similar terms to those in the main library.

How Does Free Images Work?

Simple: Browse the site for an image you like and download it. If you use it in a design of any kind then you need to mention that we were the source of the image, check the full terms for details. The site is supported through advertising on each page (which we try to keep to a minimum). The images were taken either exclusively for the site or were sourced from contributing photographers and illustrators ('freeimageslive'). Our ad revenue is used to improve the site, pay for operation and to support our nominated charity, a kiva lending group.

Freeimages was launched in February 2000, we launched our community stock image sharing site freeimageslive in October 2009. We continue to add fresh new images to the site on a regular basis along with enabling our contributor community to learn and grow
