Pixabay is a vibrant community of creatives, sharing copyright free images, videos and music. All contents are released under the Pixabay License, which makes them safe to use without asking for permission or giving credit to the artist – even for commercial purposes.

Pixabay is the content creator’s paradise, but it is also the photographer’s and graphics creator’s paradise. Most paid photo libraries charge hefty fees for their stock photos. It can go as high as 50 dollars for photo. The seasoned content creator knows that many projects are scrapped, redone, and modified many times before finally meeting success. Therefore, finding good photos to put on an ebook, website article, etc can be a challenge the traditional way.

Along comes Thousands of great, talented, awesome photographers from around the world upload amazing, high quality photos that they let you use free of charge. They don’t even ask for credit or a backlink! But it’s optional. Additionally, you can leave a donation or, as they put it, buy them a coffee. I’ve made use of a lot of these photos for my thousands of articles. You can be sure that if I use one of these free photos on a project that draws in substantial profits, I’ll pay the photographer well even though it is not necessary. I’ve already made a donation to a great photographer whose photo I used on a book project, but if the book succeeds, I also plan to pay her a part of the profits.

But it doesn’t stop there. Getting your photos accepted into traditional paid photo libraries can be challenging. They have a mountain of requirements. And when your photos finally get through, if they do, there is no guarantee that it will sell. Paid photo libraries are phasing out. Now I know what to do with the thousands of photographs I have taken during my travels: upload them to and join the community that has helped me so much. Even though I won’t get paid cold hard cash for every photo downloaded I’ll rest content that I’ve given back to the community and the world at large. Who knows, maybe a few cents will trickle in through donations, but the real satisfaction comes from watching your content being downloaded knowing that you have enriched the life of someone far away – in your own small way.
