Most of you might have heard of iStock which features a large collection of stock photography. Of course, you would have to pay for them if you want the watermark to be removed. It doesn’t comes cheap – prices range from $1 to $27. If you don’t want to burn a hole in your pocket to get these images, then I would suggest you to try out a website called Photl.
It provides exclusive high resolution images and was touted as the “the owner and distributor of the largest collection of exclusive free photos”. You might wonder if it’s illegal to download these photos but as the founder explains on the site “All the photo images are subject to extended license on usage (Extended Royalty Free). They are absolutely free and are intended to be used in commercial activity.”
Comes in eight different languages, Photl enables you to search for stock photos which are taken by professional photographers. Users can filter their search by selecting the colors they particularly want and sort the results by number of downloads and date of download. This free service only limits up to 45MB but I bet you’ll hit the target easily as the photos there have large sizes. You can select three different sizes before you download (small – 1280X1024, medium – 1920X1440 and large – 4368X2912).
Photl also makes you search experience a better one by showing you the related keywords to your search. This allows you to browse similar images.
