How You Can Use Photos From

Not every stock photo at is available under the same license, which means you must check each download page to see what you can and can not do with that particular picture.

On a photo's download page, look for the section called "License," and click the nearby link to learn about its permitted and prohibited uses and whether or not attribution is required.

It's recommended to contact if you're unsure how you're permitted to use a particular image.

My Thoughts on

I've used many stock photo websites that don't organize images into categories and won't even let you sort by date added or popularity, so I especially appreciate those two features with Plus, sorting this way isn't limited to whole categories but works even from search results, which is really nice. doesn't have quite the collection of free stock photos that some websites, like freeimages, have but it will still certainly take you quite some time to sift through them all.

At first thought, it may seem like a big drawback for to mix in non-free images with its collection, but it's really not a bother at all. I was able to go through several pages of photos and clearly see the few that were not available for free without any problems.

One thing I don't like about is that you can't sort the stock photos by license.

This means if you're looking for public domain images only, there's really no way to find just those pictures. You must instead hope that the ones you like are available in the license you require.
