You’re more than a small business owner, you’re a storyteller. When a customer is shopping with you, they want to feel reassured and see that personal touch in what you offer. One way you can tell your story is through stock photos and graphics. Yet finding ones you can use is a minefield. In this article, I’m going to share five places you can find royalty-free stock photos. These photos are free to use, free to change, and free to tell your story to your clients!
5 Places to Find Free Stock Photos
And How to Easily Add Images to Your Wix Website
Type in what you’re looking for at the top of the page and within a click you’ll find lots of professional quality photos. All photos are free to use or change and can give your website that extra polish. You don’t even have to give credit to the photographer, but recognition is nice. One quick search will show you a stream of great photos. They are all provided by talented photographers who are happy to share their work.
Like the last site, awesome stock photos are simply a search away. The great thing about this site is that the photo pool is different from Pexels.

You can even search for illustrations, videos, and music with the same ease that you can search for photos. Pictures from this site are a perfect way to tell your story and increase engagement on social media.
Stocksnap is another site that wants to make life easier for you when it comes to photos. Like Pexels or Pixabay the photos are free to use. You can also search by category, such as architecture or nature. Or check what images are trending right now. Yet again, there are hundreds of high-quality photos to choose from. With all this choice, you can show your clients the sentiment behind what you do before you even write a word.
4. Unsplash with Wix
Unsplash on its own is a terrific stock photography site. Made even better by the built-in integration on Wix.

The images are completely free to use and make your website look stunning.
5. Built-In Wix Media
Wix offers free stock too. Write a blog post or edit your Wix website. Then add images, videos, and illustrations from Wix tab in your media manager. Search for fabulous images that fit the topic of your page. Then publish. It's that easy.
