7 Awesome and Free Image Resources for Your Presentations

Pictures can bring emotion to a presentation, while words are more about cold messages and good old facts. To achieve the most results, you should be using both together. Images have the power to trigger an immediate and emotional response. This is especially true when it comes to boring presentations. By referring to powerful images, we are referring to high-quality images. Not the average images of men and women in business suits with bleach white teeth laughing at something. We are talking about clever, scenic images, animated images, images that are colorful, full of life, and originality. In other words, images that leave a lasting impression. Granted, but where to find some great images?

Today, DeckRobot shares with you 7 websites that will provide you with the best Free images available on the web.

1. Unsplash

Unsplash definitely makes a splash with the variety and the quality of their content. The high-resolution pics that they provide make them a top choice for bloggers and website owners alike. But their pictures are also a great choice for your presentations. Pictures are distributed by photographers all around the world. Even though crediting isn’t required, it is appreciated and a way for the artist to gain more prominence.

2. Pexels

Pexels is one of the most famous stock pictures websites out there. We adore this resource for its huge variety of categories and professionally shot images. You can browse their huge library of images, and find millions you can use to make your presentation stand out. Pictures are imported from a large community of photographers around the world, and from several sources of free pictures. You can edit photos as you like and use them for all purposes.

Pikwizard has a smaller library than some of the other websites here, but it's still 100,000 pictures completely free with no attribution required. However, the amount is growing on a daily basis. Also, one of the key elements differentiating Pikwizard from other stock websites is its online picture editor Design Wizard that allows you to make some simple editions like adding overlay text or shapes on pictures and videos.
