– Free Stock Photos

FreeRangeStock.comFreerange Stock offers thousands of high-resolution stock photos for free. The images are keyword searchable and can be used for commercial projects, with no back link or other cumbersome requirements.

Freerange recently launched a revenue sharing program for contributing photographers through Google AdSense that allows photographers to keep 80% of the revenue generated by their submissions. Many images are the same images available at microstock photo agencies, but at Freerange they are totally free. Images on the site are either shot by Freerange Stock, drawn from Freerange archives, or contributed by a talented community of photographers. We feel that the images want to be seen and good photos should be available to everyone – so we give the collections away with the hope that they will be useful and be enjoyed. In Their Own Words

“Freerange Stock was formed with the goal to provide quality stock photos for commercial and non-commercial use. For free. We feel that free stock photos can be good photos. Freerange is an advertising revenue supported photographic community – photographers get paid when users click on the ads that appear next to their submissions.”

Why It Might Be A Killer

Unlike many “free” stock photo sites, Freerange allows commercial use, and offers high resolution images for download. Many images are the exact images sold at microstock photo sites, but Freerange offers them for free in exchange for showing unobtrusive AdSense ads. The revenue sharing program is unique in the industry and leverages the Google AdSense API to allow photographers to sign up for an AdSense account right in the Freerange site and keep 80% of the ad revenue they generate.
