Pexels Pictures – Free Images No Attribution Required

Pexels Pictures are great for any kind of topic on a Website!

Pexels Pictures

You must have heard about pixels, right?

But, how about pexels? It is a place where you can get free images without any attribution required.

About PexelsPexels Photo License

1) Go to

Their Home Page should look like this below.Pexels Home Page

2) Type in anything you want in the Search for free photos… White Textbox Above and Press Enter.

I chose roses since that is my favorite flower.

Wow, the clarity is simply superb, pretty high quality and they are gorgeous.

Pexels Search Roses

Though there may not be a whole ton of pictures here, I am sure that there is a picture in each Search Results you encounter which is to your liking. 🙂

3) I Clicked on the picture I was interested in.

Surprisingly, underneath where it says Download For Free, the Source is

Pixabay offers high quality pictures, FREE and no attribution required. 😀

Pexels Pink Rose From Source Pixabay

I then Right-Clicked on the Image, then Left-Clicked on Open link in new tab.

Save As Image Pexels Pink Rose

I then Right-Clicked on the Image, then Left-Clicked on Save image as. I gave it a name and had it saved in My Pictures Folder.

4) I then head on over to Microsoft Office Powerpoint. I feel like it is time to tweak this image around and create a logo of sorts with it.

I know for some, they must have thought why didn’t I click on Copy Image instead of Save Image As? It is because when I tried to have the Image Pasted after I copied it, the Image did not show up.

First, I Right-Clicked on the White Template, then Left-Clicked on Layout, then Clicked on Blank.

PPT Layout Blank

Therefore, I had to go to Insert (2nd Tab at Top) and then Picture to have Image uploaded onto Microsoft Powerpoint Slide.

MS PPT Insert Picture

Selected the Image from My Pictures Folder and voila! there it is below.

Format Pink Rose

I simply shrunk it like this, by dragging it the bottom right white tiny circle diagonally.

Copy Shrunk Pink Rose

Right-Clicked on the Image, Left-Clicked on Copy.

Right-Clicked and then Left-Clicked on Paste.

Paste Duplicate Pink Rose

As soon as I saw my duplicate Pink Rose there, I dragged it to the right side.

Then, Clicked on Insert, and then Text Box.

Insert Text Box

I then inserted that Text Box in-between my 2 Pink Roses.

Next, I Clicked on Home, and then Selected the Font and Size I wanted. I then Centered the Text. Later I choose the color I wanted.

Select Text For Middle

I felt like rotating my right pink rose in a different direction. Double Clicked it and then Clicked on Rotate.

Rotate Right Pink Rose

When I was finished with all the necessary Edits I wanted, I then hit the Prt Sc Sys Rq Button on my Keyboard and then opened up Paint Program.

I then Pressed Ctrl and Letter V on Keyboard, which is Keyboard Shortcut for Pasting a Screenshot or so.

Select Crop Pink Rose

I Clicked on Home, then Select, positioned what area I wanted as I boxed around my Rose Logo, then Clicked on Crop.

Here’s how it looks below.

Final Product Pink Rose Logo

I later felt like I wanted it to stand out or project a bit more and added black lines around the inside of the white area of the pink text.

So, there you have it, you have a feel for how I add Screenshots all over my Blog Posts and how you can play around with Microsoft Powerpoint and Paint Program to create your own Logo. 🙂 But, remember be creative and important thing is to have fun with it. 😀

I am sure most of you will make something more advanced than what I did here, I just wanted to show a basic setup of what you can do in terms of being artistic and unique with what you made yourself. 🙂

Please Note in Blue

I do not know about you, but I would find it quite distracting to put a Caption underneath my Blog Post images providing an attribution link giving credit to the image creator.

To me it was time consuming and probably added bad user-friendly experience for my visitors to my website as they would click the link and drift off elsewhere in cyberspace without finishing their reading on my Content.

Which is precisely why I am on the lookout for Images that are less of a hassle for my audience members to know about and use for their own Website Blog Posts too. 🙂

After all, Free Images with no attribution requested are simply my most favorite Images around on the Internet! 😀 Because I can’t get in any kind of trouble using it to my own liking, modifying it, etc. 🙂

    1. Dear Amanuel ABRAHAM,

      Thank you so much for your Feedback, I really appreciate. 😀
      I know with finding Images online to use for one’s website is very hard and tricky since most are copyrighted.
      Sometimes I end up drawing pictures myself to be used for my website too or else I take snapshots from books I own and have it in a post.
      I know many are visual learners so only text in a website is not going to do much good, so pictures must really be out there.

      I would recommend giving Pixabay a try also. Or even go here:

      Hope that this helps direct you to where you need to go in terms of the Internet realm.

      Please feel free to drop by my website anytime you wish.

      Wishing you all the best with your online success above and beyond the horizon,


  2. Hi Phoenix
    That’s quite an interesting article and it is certainly beneficial to the readers.
    Getting quality pictures without a restriction to usage is really a very desirable thing to bloggers and thanks for the Pexels resource. I’d not heard of it before but I think it certainly is helpful.
    Wishing you a happy new year!

    1. Dear Boniface,

      Thank you so much for your Feedback, I really appreciate it. 🙂 Yes, I shall be looking into other Free Image websites which I can write future blogs on to help readers. 🙂

      I only recommend websites that are more hassle-free, no attribution required. 😀

      Hope you had a wonderful Happy New Year 2016 too. 🙂

  3. Hey Angel,
    Wow this is a very detailed post, another work well done. I love Pexels, its one of the very few image sites that I use besides Unsplash, New Old Stocks and Life of Pix.

    Besides Powerpoint, I would suggest trying out Snagit t edit and crop, its great and easy to use and I’ve been using it for quite some time now, of course its just a suggestion. Loving your post Angel, looking forward for more 😀

    1. Dear Riaz,

      Its wonderful to hear from you again as you visit my Website. 🙂 Thanks so much for your Feedback. 🙂
      Yes, there is also Pixabay, StockSnap, and Morguefile too. 🙂
      Also, there is a method you can use to get Free Images from Google too. 😀

      I have yet to try out Unsplash, New Old Stocks and Life of Pix as you have mentioned though.
      I hope they are Free Images with no attribution required as that is completely ease of convenience for me. 🙂

      I shall try my best to load more info in future blog posts even if real life gets busy too. 😛

      Wishing you all the best with your online success above and beyond the horizon,


  4. Pretty cool thing to show. Pixel is something I’m going to start playing around with for my website. Now I know the secret to all your wonderful images(: It’s also new place to look for images. As I don’t really have the money to pay for them right now.
    Thanks for the post,
    Best Regards,

    1. Dear Brandon,

      Thanks again for your Feedback, I am deeply grateful for them. 🙂 Yes, the secret finally got out about how I have these wonderful images on my website, lol. 😀 I am pretty sure I will run into more new places that offer Free Images with no attribution in the days ahead which I shall keep a sharp eye on because they are worth mentioning. Mainly because I want my wonderful visitors like you to be made aware of them. 😀

      Welcome, no problem. 🙂

      Wishing you all the best with your online business website above and beyond the horizon,


  5. Hi there,
    I must say, what a detailed site, so much info here! I’m now planning on using pixels as I build my site. Thanks so much for creating this. Many people out there such as students, teachers, online entrepreneurs or even advertisers could use your site for ways to input the right pictures. Great job!

    1. Dear grln,

      Thank you so much for your Feedback, I really appreciate it. 🙂 Awesome, glad to hear it! 😀 Welcome, no problem. 🙂 I sure do hope so.

  6. A great site! I too don’t like having to put an attribution to my pictures, and the free images you show how to access are great.
    Didn’t find much useful on Pexels, but have downloaded a few from Pixabay, and have saved it as a bookmarked site!
    Thank you so much for sharing such great information.

    1. Dear Isobel,

      Thank you so much for your kind compliments regarding how my Website is. 🙂 I know Pexels may not have as many images as Pixabay. But, it is still a pretty great website though. 🙂

      Here’s other unique places you have to try out to get more Free Images

      Wow, thanks for the Bookmark. 🙂

      Welcome, no problem. 🙂

      Looking forward to your future returns to my website. 😀

  7. Hi Angel,
    Thanks for another free photo site, I didn’t know about, Pexels Pictures. I agree with you it provides for a better user experience if we don’t need to include an attribution. Nice little tutorial on creating a header/logo, it looks good.
    Keep up the good work bringing us free resources, always very useful.
    All the best,

    1. Dear Peter,

      Welcome, no problem. 🙂 I am happy to bring such free resources for my audience to use. 🙂 After all, nothing beats free. 😀

      I like to be creative every now and then, so I try to make each Blog Post I do on Free Image Websites to be slightly different. 🙂

      I shall do my best with that. 🙂

      Please feel free to drop by my website anytime Peter. 😀

  8. Hi, thanks for sharing about Pexel. Usually I use pixabay to source out free images, but sometimes the availability is limited. So, its really nice to have some other alternatives.
    You really have a nice taste of design. I’m pretty bad at this, and that’s why I rely mostly on canva to create pretty pictures and featured images. Have you tried Canva before? If not, you should. They have a lot of ready-to-use template that simplify image editing.

    1. Dear rina,

      Thanks so much for your Feedback Comment, I am most grateful for it. 🙂 Welcome, no problem. 🙂

      Here are some other alternatives you can try for more Free Images. 😀

      Wow, thank you for the compliments on my sense of taste in design. 🙂 I have not used Canva in a long time as I usually stick with Paint Program to modify my Images and have them onto my Blog Posts.

      Please feel free to drop by my website anytime. 🙂

      Wishing you all the best with your online success above and beyond the horizon,


  9. I have used Pexels before and I find it a huge resource for finding quality images that I can use on my own blogs.

    However, I use Canva to edit them and add words and such. It’s a great free tool that I recommend to anyone.

    Super easy and you can upload the images from Pexel very easily.

    keep up the great work 😉


    1. Dear CLV,

      Thanks for your Feedback. 🙂 Yes, Pexels is great, much in the same way as Pixabay, Morguefile, and StockSnap are there as well. 😀

      I at times find myself mostly using the Paint Program to add words here and there for my Free Images. 🙂 I have yet to try out Canva sometime and see if it will be too my liking just as much as I have gotten acquainted with using Paint Program.

      I shall do my best. ^_^

      Please feel free to drop by my website anytime you wish. 🙂

      Wishing you all the best with your online success above and beyond the horizon,


  10. Oh excellent stuff – I’m always on the lookout for new image sites for my blogs! I currently use Pixabay and Morguefile – have you heard of them ( Morguefile seems to be under the radar a bit with most bloggers! ). I think images can certainly make all the difference when you are writing lengthy blog posts – thanks for this!

    1. Dear Chris,

      Thanks for the Feedback. 🙂

      I mainly target mentioning Websites that offer Free Images without attribution required, as they are completely hassle-free and my absolute favorite. 🙂

      I use Pixabay and Morguefile as well. 🙂 Have you heard about StockSnap also before?

      Yes, I agree with you in that regard, you are indeed right about that. 🙂

      Welcome, no problem. 🙂

      Please feel free to come by my website anytime. 😀

      Wishing you all the best with enhancing your website for better user engagement catering above and beyond the horizon,
