Where can I find great images for personal use?

How to find free photos on Flickr

Flickr is by far the best place to find great images for personal use. Here is a quick guide on how to find high quality photos, paintings and illustrations that you can use. 

  1. Go to Flickr.com and type in your search. In this example, we will search for â€śBallet dancer”. 
  2. Toggle the â€śAdvanced” search options. 
  3. Select â€śL” for the â€śMinimum Sizes” which will give you larger image files that are suitable for prints. 
  4. This is the critical step. By selecting â€śModification allowed”, you get to see only the images that are safe to edit and use for personal purposes. 
  5. The final step is to sort by â€śinteresting”. The default sorting option â€śby relevant” does not always give the best photos. 

That’s it. We hope you can find the images you like. 

Last but not least, a big thank you for our customer Eliza Waszczak who wrote to us and asked this question.
