Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and even LinkedIn are emphasizing images more and more. And have you noticed the latest trend where web sites are using images and even video as full-screen backgrounds?

Not All Freebie Sties Are the Same

I published my last FREE list in July 2014, but since then I have found so many new FREEBIE sites cropping up that I could not wait any longer to share them with you. I have my mega list divided into five categories with a brief explanation of each.

My Personal MEGA List that I Love and Use Daily:

Public Domain Sites: These sites are not as easy to navigate but might be the place to look for that hard to find image…

Font & Icon Sites: Just as it reads, free fonts and icons…

  • FindIcons – We bring every icons in the world to your fingertips.

Final note: Although free, each resource will have a specific use license. This license will give parameters of how you can or cannot use the resource. Please be aware of these terms and abide by them. Also be sure to notice that some of these sites also sell content so be sure you are shopping the free section.
