Get High Resolution Photos And Edit For Free

*Notice additional information added in bold at the end of the

We frequently need photos to add a look of professionalism to
blog posts, articles, websites, or other sites. Where can we
get high-resolution photos and how can we edit them for

Photoxpress is the best place I’ve found to get free photos.
The free version limits you to ten photos a day, but the
resolution is very high and it’s not common that a person will
need more than 10 photos a day.

Photoshop is an excellent software program for photo editing; but
what if you don’t have Photoshop and you’re not willing to pay
the money to get it?

Picnik is a great site that allows you to upload photos and
edit them. The service is free, easy to use, and provides
a number of editing options ranging from adding text, to
cropping, to adding special effects and features.

By using photoxpress and picnik together you can create high
quality customized photos.

There is also a picnik application that can be added to your
Facebook fan page. This makes it easier to edit your photos without
having to leave your fan page.

I hope this helps and thanks for reading,

(12/28/2010) Photoxpress has changed their pricing plans
since I created this post. Now, if you already
have an account you will continue to get the 10 free
photos a day. If you do not have an account you will
need purchase a paid version. If you don’t want to pay |
for the photos I would recommend going to stock.xchng
instead. They seem to be an excellent alternative.

  1. Cool resource, Josh. Thanks for sharing – gonna go check it out right now!

  2. Hi Joshua,

    Thanks for sharing this resource. I have been using http://www.sxc.hu and was looking for an additional source. You brought it to me on a silver platter, thanks again

  3. I checked out Photoxpress …. doesn’t seem to be free anymore…. ? 😦

    • Thanks for the comment. I went to the site and it turns out that they did change it. So, if you already have an account you are able to continue getting the 10 free photos a day; however, if you are new to photoxpress you will be charged.

      I went to http://www.sxc.hu which was mentioned in another comment to this post. They have very nice photos as well. I would suggest checking them out since you don’t already have a photoxpress account.

      Thanks again for bring this up.

      Good luck getting quality photos!
