Hi there, welcome back to Creative Quick Tips. My name is Justin Sealy and in this video I'm going to be talking about how to find great royalty-free stock images. And this is through a website called unsplash.com. And this is a really interesting website. It's actually a Tumblr blog and as you scroll through you're going to see a lot of different photos. Many of which are high resolution, very nice looking, and these are some great images that you can use for blog posts, you can use them for backgrounds, pretty much anything you want.
And the best part is, they are completely royalty free. If you scroll up to the very very top of the website, you can see right here, it says free. Do whatever you want. And there's a link right here. If you click on this link and I'll just open it up in a new tab, you can actually see the Creative Commons License for this service. And so you can see that there's no copyright and it gives you other information about it. You can read this complete text if you want and it tells you right here, this is a human readable summary of the legal code. If you want to read the full legal disclaimer, you can read that right there. But basically right here, it just tells you, hey, you can do whatever you want with these photos.
So you can use them in your projects, you can use them as your desktop background, it really doesn't matter. And they post new photos every ten days on this blog and you can scroll down all the way to the bottom and it will just continue to load photos and as you can see, there are a variety of different types, sizes, and subject matters all through here. Now there's no way to really search these unfortunately, so you just kind of have to scroll through, but, all-in-all it's a really great resource for finding some really cool photos.
And if you already use Tumblr, you can subscribe to this blog and have these photos just populate your Tumblr feed, making it a lot easier for you to keep up with exactly what's being released on this service. So again, it's unsplash.com for quick, royalty-free, do-whatever-you-want photos to use in your project.
