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:

  • Featured
  • People
  • Body Parts
  • Buildings
  • Objects
  • Animals
  • Food
  • Plants
  • Landscapes Nature
  • Places
  • Application Resources
  • Fractal Resources
  • 3D Models
  • Gore Blood and Dead stuff
  • Textures
  • Skies Clouds Weather
  • Free Wallpapers
  • Miscellaneous
  • Premade Backgrounds
  • Windows Doorways
  • Arches Walls Steps
  • Statues Monuments Cemeteries
  • Transportation
  • 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.
