When I find a cool thing, I like to share it. As indies, we have to finance every little bit of our projects.
Costs add up — quick!
Thank goodness for awesome people who don’t mind sharing their talents and products for FREE! Such as in the case of Unsplash.
This year is actually their 3 year birthday. Check out their story by going to Unsplash.com. While you’re there, go ahead and subscribe and you will receive a collection of photos every week. Their tag line says you can do whatever you want with these photos.
Since I’ve subscribed, I’ve gotten a set of at least 5 pics a week. They are beautiful. I haven’t used the images yet, other than to admire them, but that’s enough for me. Some pics have certainly stirred the creative juices in my head for possible future stories. That’s always a plus, right?
Here’s a couple of the pics, I’ve received direct in my email. The ones I’ve received have had some really cool architectural images and nature images. Some are very geometric, there’s been a good variety.
Like I said, I haven’t used any of the images for creative endeavors as in including the images in my blogs (well except for right now), or covers, or promotionals. If you are thinking about using Unsplash images for that, I would encourage you to really read up on what they allow and don’t allow.
Remember you are responsible for your creative business including checking out usage rights for pics, vectors, quotes, and all that other fun stuff. Don’t steal, that’s the golden rule 🙂
