Working with a smaller budget or no budget forces you to be resourceful. One thing that can be hard to find for cheap or even free are great quality photos that look at home in your post or on your website. I’ve spent a lot of time searching for free media is good enough to look professional. I’ve gathered together 3 websites for free images and video that you can use anywhere.
At Prexels you can download high-quality images here and videos here. They present a great user experience as they give multiple resolutions to download the images at, and they even allow you to search images based on color. There’s no limit to the number of images you can download and you don’t even need an account. They also have quite a large collection so it will take a long time before you use all there material.
Burst is very similar to Prexels, however, they only provide images. As it is a service by Shopify you can expect a large selection of very high-quality images across numerous topics. They do have slightly less options than Prexels since they don’t have the color pallet search and they only have two resolution options to download from. It is a resource absolutely worth bookmarking though, as you will certainly find images well worth using for your media needs.
Coverr specializes in excellent videos that can be used as background covers for your website. Creating high quality videos can be much more expensive than videos so this source is bound to save you a lot of money. When you download the video they present with a zip file that has multiple file formats which should suit your needs regardless of the situation.
These sources can potentially save you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars in media production for your every day content. If you ever need media you should absolutely search these sources first since you’ll probably find something you can use quickly and easily!
