INSIDE THIS ARTICLE… 📖

Tips for using free image banks

The first thing is to take a look at the different image banks that we propose in this list. At the end of this article I will leave you a few recommended for the quantity and quality of their photographs.

  • After analyzing the different options, choose 3-4 image banks from which you like their style or image quality, and maybe have a couple more in reserve in case you need to give your work more variety.
  • Do the word searches in English. As much as you find image banks in Spanish, you will cover many more images in English.
  • Use an editorial line.
  • Do not forget to thoroughly review the licenses of each image bank that you are going to use. That is why I also recommend you to have your favorites, to know them thoroughly in terms of use and licenses.
