If you are searching for a specific photo for a presentation etc (eg: "smiling couple beach") Google Image search might get you a few nice results (actually not that great sadly), but often a lot of these are stock photos with watermarks over the top saying you can't use them. What if you want photos you can legal use AND you want high quality. Once you restrict a Google Image search to Tools > Usage Rights > Labelled for reuse you are left with not a lot of good results.

Here's a few sites that might have what you want with a CC0 (No Copyright, Creative Commons) license:

  • Composite Search:
    • Google Image Search - great for searching for specifics like "pistachio ice cream" making sure to set to tools > "labelled for free use" and "large", and then double check the image is fair game.

  • Icons:

Special Paid Images

  • Special Licence:
    • - Huge number of images, searchable by number of people and event specific people and events. I don't think any are free images, but they are very high quality.
