These are great resources as well, but I am going to give you two ADDITIONAL resources and ways below on how to get awesome, FREE premium files. So bookmark, and add to your favorites like I have. It is important to utilize the free resources out there when it comes to growing your website or blog. This gives you the opportunity to save the money in your budget as much as possible.
Resources for FREE Premium Files:
This is my go to website for not only purchasing premium WordPress themes, plug-ins, and templates, but also to get free premium files as well. Every single month, as long as you sign up for their newsletter (do that here), envatomarket will send you freebie files from thier community. They give out freebie downloads for themes, design templates (for Photoshop, Illustrator, AfterEffects, InDesign, etc.), Audio, plug-ins, and whatever else they choose.
The only way I know how to receive envatomarket’s free premium files each month is by signing up for their newsletter. They send out freebie links straight to your inbox regularly every single month. Go here to envatomarket’s homepage, scroll all the way to the bottom, enter your email, and hit subscribe, it’s way too easy. You may also be able to find links in their blog section (I visit this often) that will direct you to free files as well. You would just have to be a frequent visitor to catch these links.
What I would consider the biggest stock photography website out there today. Each week they offer a free photo and free vector for anyone to download. You can either go to their website to check when they post news ones every week, or sign up for their newsletter, which also highlights their free premium files download. If you do choose to just visit the website every week, be sure to set yourself reminders.
I’ve noticed with Shutterstock, just link with envatomarket, if you visit their blog frequently, they will sometimes include links to download their free files too. Of course, you would need to pay close attention and not miss a blog post. Personally, I think signing up for their newsletter is the easiest and quickest way to access their free premium files.
Like I mentioned above, check out my other blog posts listed above, they contain links to additional sites to download free photos and vectors. You can find awesome files on those sites and all they ask for usually is a link back (not all require this though). This brings me to my next point and that is to remember to read and understand the license type on all of your downloads.
You may wonder why these websites are giving these free premium files away, there must be a catch right. No catch. They simply want to draw more potential customers in to download with the hope to purchase additional items in the future. They may also want to highlight a newer or featured artist to show off their work. Whatever the reason, free is free, enjoy your free premium files download!
