Free Images

At WSA we do not believe giving images away for free is a good idea and it’s certainly not economically viable. You get what you pay for in a commercial environment and if you pay nothing, well, you’re likely to get close to nothing... a reject image, an image that has never sold or even an image that might infringe some copyrights. Who knows? However, if you really have no money, you can’t afford to pay rock bottom microstock prices and you’re aware of potential pitfalls, here are the best resources in our view.

One other consideration, free images are usually used as an upsell ploy, so you may even end up buying an image after all, which is what the majority of you probably should have tried doing in first place!
