Unsplash has got images that looked like that they came through the hands of professional photographers. The images are put together as collections, which work like albums with a theme. Simply pick one that best fit your content.
Pexels ranks contributing photographers based on the number of views they’ve got on their photos, and even put them on a leaderboard. High quality photos with gamification – what’s there not to like! P.S. They also have lots of stick videos.
Illustrations & Icons
Flaticon organizes flat vector icons in packs, and each pack has a specific category. When you download a pack, you get access to all the icons in it.
Not limited to vector icons, Freepik has a wide range of graphic resources – illustrations, photographs, logo designs, and more. If you need inspiration for graphic creation, Freepik is definitely your go-to.
Canva has got more than 40 categories of design formats, and in each category is a huge library of templates to pick from. You do not need to worry about no finding something you like, but worry about not being able to decide on one!
If you are looking to create more that just static images, consider Crello. There are templates of animated content that you are can pick off the shelf or further customize to your liking.
What’s great about Design Wizard is not just the over ten thousand image templates. You can find integrations with Hubspot, Marketo, Buffer and Intercom – making graphic editing that much easier!
