Freephotos.cc - Offers Stock Photo Database
Download for Free or Upload and Share Creative Commons (CC) Licensed Photos
The site was created by a photographer for photographers to share their work as stock images. Photographers participate on the freephotos.cc site by voluntarily uploading their own work to the database. Uploaded images are made available for free distribution to all visitors and owners waive copyright for the images for the duration that images remain on the site.
In exchange for releasing rights to the photos, photographers receive promotional value in the form of exposure. All images uploaded to the site appear along with the name of the photographer or entity surrendering the rights and a back-link to his/her portfolio or website. Images can be removed from the site on demand, however rights to use the images remain with visitors who successfully download them while they were available.
Freephotos.cc uses APIs from other stock photo sites to incorporate their large existing image databases in searches. Providers include such sites as flickr, pexels, istockphoto, gettyimages, and many more. The combination of these resources makes the freephotos.cc site the largest resource for royalty-free public domain images available on the internet.
Options for exploring images include text search, an alphabetical list of keyword categories for filtering popular searches, and a dedicated search of premium images. Visitors have the option to search only royalty-free images via manual browsing. Performing a search or categorical filtering presents both royalty-free images and premium images in distinct panels on the result page. A third option presents the premium images available for purchase only.
All images can be altered as desired without limitation and used in print or on the web.
