As an Envato Market author there are times when you may need to include digital assets in your previews and items that you sell here. While it’s always possible to license photos, video, and music directly from Envato Market, there are lots of ways to obtain free content from the Web to help make your items look amazing! We’ve put together a guide and a list of image resources to help you get started!
Helpful Guidelines Before you Get Started
Before you begin downloading and using digital assets in your items and item previews, it’s very important to understand that not all free content is created equally! Even though something may be listed as “free” there may be specific licensing details that may allow, or deny, commercial use of content. We’ve got a great article below to help answer all your questions!
Now that you know all about what you can and can’t use (and how to check whether you can use external content), let’s get down to recommending some great, free, asset resources! Please note that our list is not intended to be exhaustive, but merely high quality resources that we think you may find useful.
Now that you’ve got some incredible images, you might like to read The Web Designer’s Guide to Photo Selection over on our sister site, Tuts+, to help you understand the art of not only finding the right image, but how to avoid using the wrong image too!
