Building a Massive Library of Free Images for Everyone

Hi Everyone,

I’ve been building a library of thousands of images that might be useful under titles, for visual effects and for other things. All I ask in return is to be attributed in your videos as explained on my site:

My images can be accessed from the top menu bar on my site. I sincerely hope some of them are helpful! :slight_smile:

The Pexels website is very useful for free and royalty-free images and videos. If you join you can add to their over 3 million items. See: https://www.pexels.com/

Similar sites include https://pixabay.com/ and https://mixkit.co/ (the latter does have some more restrictive licensing on some media). Both of these include sounds/music, pictures, and videos. For sounds/music only, https://www.free-stock-music.com (despite the name, this site does include some non-free music as well).

There are other sites that are sources for free / royalty free media, including some provided by members of this forum; the above are the ones that I have stumbled across that allow one to contribute your own media to the collections.

On edit: I can’t access the mixkit site … don’t know if it is temporarily down, or permanently down.

It’s working for me at the moment

It also works for me, and was also working 30 mins ago.

I think the site is on development in some regions

I don’t know why everyone is pasting links to stock image websites, because you have already said that they are for Visual Effects and textures for titles.

But they are very nice, I am now using the bark texture of yours to make my tree in blender.

In the search box in Pexels, type “Texture” it will come up with over 20,000 images. You can narrow it down e.g to Wood, Brick, Marble etc…

This isn’t to detract from Eric’s kind provision of images, just to point out other resources for this type of image.

Thanks! I created those by mixing my images together in various ways in Photoshop. I did a bunch of fantasy stone textures that way, too. They’re here if you’re interested:

Enjoy! :slight_smile:
