You may have noticed our love of free photos. We write about the topic quite often. And we even give out a few free photos ourselves (you can find them in our freebies section).

With this post, we’re continuing the trend.

If you’re looking for a convenient, singular source of great photos to use in your design projects, head over to Pexels — an image-based search engine that only features copyright-free public domain photos. This site has a boatload of truly free, no-strings-attached images.

Pexels looks for cream-of-the-crop photos from other great sites like Unsplash and Gratisography, and then pulls them all together in one spot. Finding photos by subject is easy because the site takes the time to tag each image it features.

The search engine has over eight hundred free photos, with thirty new photos added every week.
