Day#12: Unsplash – packed with free, high quality photos

As a creative, I’m so thankful for any resources that are generous, that allow us to use their tools for free at a decent level if not entirely. 

Unsplash is a platform that offers over two-million entirely free high resolution photos of tremendous categories such as animals, travel, technology, food and drinks, spirituality, textures and patterns, lifestyle, etc.

All photos on this platform submitted from contributors are also well curated. Users can download for free with options to give or not give credit to the contributor (credit is always recommended.)  

We can use or edit these images in any work we like. I use them both in my school and client projects. Sometimes I have to edit the file size because of their massive size that can slow down the loading time of the work. It has been my main source of great quality stock pictures for years – something I’m, again, so grateful for. 

Below is one example of Unsplash images I used for client work.

Unsplash lets us submit photos and give recognition to top contributors by showing their profile icon at the homepage of each category. Each contributor has their own profile as a portfolio with contact information in case anyone wants to hire them. 

Do you have any free resources you always go to to get high resolution photos? Please share 🙂


This is day#12 post and a part of my commitment to spend 30 minutes a day for 30 days straight to write about software development tools that I love. My goal is to build my daily writing habit and connect to more people. This project is inspired by @dickiebush ’s “Ship 30 for 30” Atomic Essays.
