Free Public Domain Images Commercial Use – Pixabay

Free Public Domain Images Commercial Use – Pixabay is #1

Free Public Domain Images Commercial Use

I Highly Recommend people to obtain their Images/Pictures from Pixabay.

Public Domain Free Images are provided at Pixabay and best part is new images are seen weekly no matter what.

All of the Images have License: CCo Public Domain Free for commercial use/ No attribution required.

Accurate Search Bar there provides Fast Results to find what you are looking for.

Not familiar with Pixabay? No problem!

I shall provide you a Step-By-Step Guide in learning how to Navigate through Pixabay to obtain the FREE Images you desire. 🙂


1) Go to https://pixabay.com/

You should see the Following Screen next as you do.

Pixabay Website Home Page

2) Type in anything you want in the White Textbox Above and Press Enter.

I chose Peacock since they are Blue like my favorite color and a beautiful bird.


Please Note in Blue

I normally Don’t Select Any of the Images on the First Layer of the Image Results since they have a Watermark on them.

They are from Shutterstock which is known for putting a Watermark on all their Images.

Plus, Shutterstock Images are known to be Paid Images, so please exercise caution on that regard.

A Watermark is like a Faint Design that is seen across an Image that has a Branded Name on it or some irremovable Text present.

You would see ShutterStock on them and I don’t like that being seen on my Images. It ruins the Image for me personally in my honest opinion.

It should look more natural so I choose the Images I like after the First Layer to use for my Website Pages/Posts.


Right-Click on the Image you like, then Left-Click Open link in new tab.

Pixabay Peacock Image Results

You should be able to see something similar to the Following Screen for your Selected Picture.

I am going with

Size Small Pixabay Pictures

Notice underneath the Size it says:
License: CCo Public Domain Free for commercial use/ No attribution required.

Peacock Preference Picture From Pixabay

3) I usually choose the Size S since the other Sizes M, L, XL ask me to Register for a Pixabay Account whether I Left-Click on Download or View.

I then do a Right-Click on View, then Left-Click Open link in new tab. The Following Screen below appeared.

Right-Click on the Image and then Left-Click Save image as…

I give my Image a Creative Name first and then I save my Image usually in my Folder called My Pictures.

Or, for better organizing purposes, I save my Images in a particular Folder like the Above and Beyond the Horizon Folder which would have the Images stored I would want to use for my Website. 🙂

Save Image As Peacock Picture


I hope this helped many of you out that needed an Alternative Place to grab Free Images from using Pixabay. 🙂

Also, if you need another great place to get Images to use on your Website, please be sure to check my Blog Post on getting Free Google Images. 

Images are free to use, share or modify, even commercially.

I call it simply as Great Google Images Click here to read about it. 🙂

Looking for loads of Free Stock Images for Public Commercial Use? Try Morguefile. 😀

Another place that offers Free Images without Copyright is StockSnap. 🙂

    I’ve used other resources to find free images on line but had not heard of Pixabay until now. this will definitely go on my list of resources to look into when I’m adding pictures to a blog! Pictures really are worth a thousand words but it’s so hard to come across good quality ones for free. When you pay for every picture you use it can get pretty expensive! Have you found that Pixabay has a pretty good selection of pictures to choose from?

      Dear jCamden,

      Thanks for your Feedback, I really appreciate it. 🙂

      The thing I like about Pixabay is that there is no attribution required.

      You may also want to try out: Google Free Images, Morguefile, Pexels, and StockSnap.

      I hope that these help. 😀

    Pixabay is definitely a great resources for photos for blogs. Another, quicker way to capture the images is to screenshot them. Thanks for the information about the watermarks on the Shutterstock images, I think those are images that you would need to pay for before using them.
    Thanks for sharing this and keep up the good work.

      Dear Ian,

      Thanks so much for your Feedback, I really appreciate it. 🙂 You are right in that Pixabay is a wonderful place to get free images to use with your blogs no attribution required. ^_^

      Welcome no problem. Shutterstock Images are pictures you would definitely need to pay for first before you can start using them on your blogs.

    Pixabay is an awesome resource. I’ve found a lot of great free images using pixabay and the search function is user friendly.

    Another great resource that I’ve found for pictures that can be used in articles is Flickr Creative Commons. In most cases, you’ll need to credit the photographer.

    I prefer Pixabay in most cases but sometimes there is a picture that I have in mind that simply has to go there so in some cases it’s good to pay for a commercial license for some images.

      Dear Ian,

      Thank you so much for your Feedback. 🙂 I enjoy using Pixabay because there is no attribution required and for ease of convenience sake of remembering to credit the author of the photos too.

      I normally do not like paying for commercial license for images because I believe the best things in life are for free anyways. 🙂

    Pixabay is a nice resource for free stock photos. I am very grateful of the booming of free stock photos because it helps many of us have a much easier time at getting our hands on good photos, as opposed from paying high price at sites like Photobucket.

    I rarely use photos from Paxabay though, although they have a very large collection, not all their photos are high quality. Mostly I surf on Pexels. Have you heard of it?

      Dear Anh,

      Yeah, Pixabay is absolutely one of my Top 3 picks to get Free Images without worrying yourself over the copyright infringement aspect. Yes, cheap and best, phenomenal way to go about anything you want out of life and success.

      Paxabay? Wow, with one tiny letter change makes a big difference on what a Website can contain.

      Note To Self: Always be careful where you browse and always seek other alternatives if you are not happy with the results or opinions expressed on something. Trust the gut feeling always, it usually right than second guessing yourself.

      Pexels, yes, I have. Didn’t think anyone else would know though. 🙂

    Wow! Pixaby! What a cool site. Before pixabay, I struggled a lot with getting free images for commercial use, some site charged you at high price and simply not within my budget. What I love about pixabay is free for all commercial uses and no attribution is required, love it, solved many of my problems of worrying about copyright etc. I registered an account in pixabay and it works fine for me. I have downloaded photos with all resolution and was not prompted to enter the captcha once I registered with them. I registered weeks ago but have not remembered receiving any promotion message from them.

    I had made a post about where I can find some free pictures out there. Although Wikimedia Commons has been good too me sometime they don’t have what I am looking for. I am definitely going to give pixabay a try, hopefully they got some pics that could relate to my niche thanks for the recommendation.

    1. Angel (Post author)

      I know Wikimedia Commons too, the pictures are for Public Domain. But, what they don’t usually have is variety. Pixabay has variety and I have found Images here that reflected something I can use for my Niche as well. Also, have you tried out how to find Images on Google also?

      Welcome, no problem. 🙂

    Hi there Angel , I always enjoy searching for Free images on Pixabay , without worrying for attributions or other legal stuff.

    When I first built my website I was visiting Pixabay almost daily.

    I have written an article , few months ago , mentioning various royalty free images directories , just like this one.

    From my experience so far although Pixabay is not the best when it comes to quality , it has variety of images that could satisfy every marketer in every possible niche and their search function makes the navigation a handy game.

    Very nice breakdown , thanks for a relaxed read.

    I am also using Pixabay most of the time because it is free and the quality of the pictures is not that bad. I have never paid for a single image before because most of my images are screen shots that I take to explain the products that I review.

    Freeimages is also a great and free resource that one can use

    1. Angel (Post author)

      I love Pixabay. It is indeed my #1 Recommended Place to get Free Images without having to give credit where it is due (attribution).

      Me too. 🙂 Most of the time I screenshot the Products I research more on and then do the best I can to provide a Review after. 🙂

      I shall look into FreeImages.com then. 🙂

      Thanks for that. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing how to get free images for my website from Pixabay. I was referred to them once by someone but then I came across paid images and never went back. I never realised that I had to just look a little longer as the first few were paid and then the free images after them. Thanks for sharing and explaining how to get free images from Pixabay in an easy to understand way!

    Hello!

    Thank you for writing this! I’m currently working on a travel hack website and I need free pictures. I have one site that I use but I think it’s better if I have another source for pictures because free pictures online are extremely limited and some are copyrighted. I’m going to bookmark this website and tune in for more content.

      Thank you so much for your Feedback. 🙂 It is greatly appreciated. 🙂 Welcome, no problem. 🙂 I am glad that this Post of mine brought you a great sense of relief in terms of getting Free Images for your Website you may use. 🙂

      Yes, you are very right, it is hard to find a Website Directory where all the Images you want are Free. I love Pixabay just for that sole purpose alone. And not to mention no attribution is needed as a result, since all the Images are Free for Commercial Use. 🙂 Another place you can look at is Google Images, there is a certain method you have to go about as you get Images from them the right way. In fact I wrote a Blog Post on that, perhaps that will also aid you more with getting the exact pictures you want displayed on your Website as well. 🙂

      I am so thrilled beyond belief to hear you enjoy the Content I have posted on my Website. 🙂

      I will definitely be posting more in the days to come. 🙂

    Angel,
    Just want to say this is my favorite free picture website. They get a lot of new pictures from people who use their site. If anyone has pictures they would like to share; they can submit them for consideration. so others can use them for free. I think if they accept a certain number of you pictures you can use the site without the ShutterStock ads.

    Hi, This is a great post and its actually something I’m interested in.

    I have one question. When you save the picture to your computer does the picture have that transparent “Shutterstock” word written across it?

    When I did it thats what happened. It kinda ruins the picture I think.

      Dear Robert Lawrence,

      Thanks for your Feedback. 🙂 That transparent “Shuttershock” is known as a Watermark where some Branded name appears over an Image claiming ownership of the image that ruins the picture in my opinion as well.

      I just won’t use the First Layer of Images they have for their Image Results though, they contain a Watermark and have ShutterStock written on them.

      I hope this helped answer your question. 🙂

      As far as I know, all of the Images here are Copyright Free. They all appear to say Free for commercial use / No attribution required.

      Pixabay is better than others since you don’t have to tweak around with the Settings around too much to get the Images you need for usage on your Website. 🙂 Plus, the other cool things about Pixabay is that they constantly Update their Image Search Results regularly so you have more picture to choose from that you could use for your website. 🙂 They are also High Quality Pictures too. 🙂

I like to separately put the saved Pictures I get from Pixabay into a separate Folder like Above and Beyond the Horizon Website which I can go to find pictures I need for my Website better. 🙂 I hope that helps answer your question for you. 🙂 This is not a silly question at all. 🙂
