Free Photos for Commercial Use

As you might have seen photos shown in the live Joomla 3 templates preview are for demonstration purposes only and are not included in the download QuickStart packages. Due to license QuickStart package contains mostly only image placeholders with grey background blocks with JoomShaper logo inside.  Unfortunately, we cannot include in Quickstart packages all photos from the original template Demo. But we all know that the first online impression is the most important, so you should always use high quality and 100% legal photos. But from where you can take those HQ photos, without the watermark of course, hmm? Don't worry, we will show you.

Good advice, always double-check image license before you will use found the photo for personal or commercial projects. We suggest using images licensed with a creative commons attribution license CC0 (Creative Commons Zero) and CC-BY-2.0 (Attribution to the creator, free for commercial use). You can copy, modify, distribute and perform the work, even for commercial purposes, all without asking for permission.

Remember if you use copyright licensed photo (even only one) you may pay a big fine for that, after short trail. If you are in doubt you should contact the copyright holder directly, or try to contact the site where you found the content. So it's better to be always sure of your image resource and license.

Thanks for sharing. Since Adobe swallowed up Dollar Photo Club we have been looking for stock sources that were more competitive.

I'd add https://unsplash.com/ to the list, some great stuff on there too!

Attention! I can't stress it enough: Check out the image/photo license again and again. Do not blindly rely on the provided license infos on those websites! Always try to reach the author and copyright holder. Try to find out the real creator of the material. All those platforms are not responsible for any mistakes, or wrong infos. If you get in trouble, because of a "black sheep", you have to prove you are not to blame. Usually nobody will help you. Nonetheless, always try to get heard by the platform and its support. Maybe you are a lucky guy.
