10 image sources so you don’t have to steal anymore

You know this, you want to add a nice image to your website, but no and not find a suitable one. Many of us eventually resorted to what our hands shaded in the Middle Ages – theft. Today, however, the internet mask of false anonymity gives us more courage. But that is just an illusion.

Have you heard about the CC0 license? Deprives authors of all their copyrights. Thanks to good souls who publish images under this license, we can download beautiful photos with impunity. The second option is to download Public Domain licensed files. It will provide you with any use without any restrictions laid down by copyright law.

I have prepared a list of the best image sources using these licenses. No registration required. Just come, choose and download. From now on you can sleep with a clear conscience.
