It doesn’t matter whether this is your first time using a free stock photo or you are using stock photos for a few years now, it is important to know what each license means so you can determine what your rights are when using the photos from any resource.
The Creative Commons license framework is a popular copyright license that makes it super easy for artists and creative people to share their work. There are many types of Creative Commons licenses – some permit certain uses for certain purposes while others are virtually unlimited.
The license that you will be usually looking for is Creative Commons Zero. The photos that are licensed as CC0 can be used without a permission or attribution. You can also use photos under the Creative Commons Attribution License. These photos can be used without a permission, however, you must always link back to the source and indicate if the photo has been modified.
