FREE to use....has more than one meaning.

Usually it means 'free to use' for personal use or 'free to use' if you love that shutterbug watermark.

Then there is the limitation on business use.

Then there is the limitation on commercial use.

Then there is the limitation on the image format being inappropriate in format or size to accomplish the intended purpose.

I have found that simply plunking down the dollars for the shiny thing makes my life easier. So, I look for providers that publish multiple formats (EPS, VCT, PNG, AI) and accompanying differential maps.

For ordinary picts, I find the library that comes with the editors to be more than sufficient. Then of course my Canon 80D easily fills in the voids.

Some of my favorites are:

RawShorts

GivemeFreeSound

PNGTree

FreePic

Be aware, if you don't have robust security software, downloading FREE stuff may not be without cost in the end.

      When using those "free image" photo sites, take a screen shot and paste that your page.  If you direct link to the site, you may get source code and backlinks planted onto your page.  And/or their site could go down and the photo goes poof.  Or, they could change to a payment site and your images will be held hostage for ransom (like what happened with Photoshop). 

       If "taking a screen shot" violates that site's EULA or TOS, then skip that site and find another one.
