    Hey,
    I've been trying to find photos of celebrities that are copyright free, so I can use/edit and post them on my website without copyright issues. Most of the sites like gettyimages, shutterstock etc. are paid ones and they cost a lot, like 150$ for 1 picture on gettyimages, that's hilarious. There really isn't a website which offers pictures of celebs that are totally free to use?

    Search the photo of celebrity you want on google. Go to images section. Click on tools (right to settings). Change the usage right to available for reuse. This won't get you some high quality photos but still you can get something. Otherwise just steal photos from shutter stock :)

    BE careful with "copyright free" pics....
    Sites like Pexels or Pixabay are full of stolen pics and the fact that the thief uploads them as "copyright free" doesnt mean they are copyright free....

    And then there are also personal rights of people appearing in the pictures.

    Depending on how you use them you might need the celebrities consent for using them.
    You cannot take a celebrities image ( even it is published "for re-use" ) to make a banner ad for example....
    The $150 per image are cheap compared to what their lawyers will squeeze out of you
    when the image or it's use on your site violates any of their rights....

    Better be very careful with "copyright free images"

    A lot of stuff on sites like Pixabay is NOT copyright free, because they are copyrighted images that someone dowloads from shutterstock and shares them.
    The image is still copyright protected anyway....

    And if people appear in the image then there are also personality rights involved. Even if you would find a copyright free image of a celebrity you still are not allowed to build a banner ad with it....

    If you want to keep yourself out of trouble than copy the URL of an image you want to use, go to images.google and click the little camera icon in the search box. Paste the URL and google will show you where this picture appears on the internet. If you see it is coming from shutterstock or other paid sites then better not use it....

    The $150 are cheap compared to what the lawyers will squeeze out of you if your use of the image infringes the rights of the celebrity.....

    I've visited link above but I think it would be a little bit difficult to get images that relevant to our content. They provide only 1000 pictures and some of pics are not fully free.
    I usually use a snipping tool to screenshot every image that I get from Youtube video streaming. Can u guys tell me is it legal?

    The search term to use is royalty free (so royalty free photos, royalty free images, royalty free icons, royalty free vectors etc.)

    I use freepik most of the time, but I'm mostly using vectors and icons.

    The site AllTheFreeStocks is a pretty badass site. It does a metasearch over quite a few sites and they are all creative commons. If it's out there, you'll probably find it somewhere there. Plus it has free vectors, sounds, templates, etc. Always my first stop when I'm looking for something specific.

    I use pixabay and pexels. I also just use copyrighted photos sometimes. But I'm careful or just use anyway. Type in Google "(Celebrity Name)" "Public Domain" and check photo rights. You could also apply fair use on some photos depending on what method you are using them for.

    Pixabay.com has few of celebrities photos.
    There is not much, but enough IMO.
    And it's a free stock photos, by the way.

    Pexels, Unsplash, Burst, and many other sites offer royalty free images you don’t have to pay for. Some of those sites also have free stock footage.
