I know your pain.

You may be less willing to pay for stock photos as you feel that your presentation is just for internal consumption. So you start trawling through the internet for free stock photos to spruce up your presentation.

There are plenty of high-quality and professional photos out there if you know where to search. Using beautiful, relevant and high-quality photos is going to help you create a deck of impactful presentation slides.

However, many of the websites offering stock photos require you to either pay a one-time fee or sign up for a monthly subscription package.

The good news for all aspiring presenters out there is that there are many ways for you to access to high-quality stock photos legally if you know where to look.

Quick Note About Licenses Before We Start

The following list of sites contains free stock photos that are either free from copyright restrictions or licensed under creative commons public domain dedication. This means that you can copy, modify, distribute the photos, even for commercial purposes, without seeking permission.

However, some images may require attribution. I have done my best to identify which license they fall under but I would still advise you to do your own research and determine how these photos can be used.

For your convenience, I have complied and categorised a list of the best stock photos sites on the web for your different presentation needs.
