Need images for your blogposts or other purposes? There is a great collection of ‘free to use’ images at Stock-Unrestricted at DeviantArt.
The rules there state:
- Unrestricted Stock can be used for both personal and commercial projects.
- The user is not required to obtain permission to using the stock off site, or in DA prints.
- It cannot be sold as, or redistributed as, the original stock image.
- The crediting/notification is not required to use the stock.
The collection is divided into 24 categories or galleries:
- Body Parts
- Landscapes Nature
- Application Resources
- Fractal Resources
- 3D Models
- Gore Blood and Dead stuff
- Skies Clouds Weather
- Free Wallpapers
- Premade Backgrounds
- Windows Doorways
- Arches Walls Steps
- Statues Monuments Cemeteries
- Technical Mechanical
Not everything there is of the quality you’d get paying money to a stock photo company, but it is worth a look for more incidentally useful visuals. It is also worth a look at DeviantArt’s Resources & Stock Images.
