  • October 2013: 10 Best Free Hi-Res Photos by Unsplash

    A few months ago we introduced you to Unsplash.com, a project by Ooomf. Since then they kept promise and regularly released new images. Quality varies though. That’s why we decided to help separate the wheat from the chaff by publishing only the 10 best images released in October 2013. We do not necessarily choose those photos with the highest level of photographic artistry, but our eye is more on usefulness. Which photos are good to support articles, designs and such without showing too much uniqueness to render them unusable without their original context. That said: have fun and do whatever you want with these gorgeous photos…

  • Totally Free: Unsplash.com delivers Hi-Resolution Photos To Your Inbox

    Commercial use photos are always appreciated. In most cases, though, licensing is not as straightforward as you would want it to be. Studying license conditions is not what most of us like to struggle with. Some countries even have legal systems in place, where it is hard for the creator to waive all his legal rights, even if he explicitly wants to. The best way to stay out of trouble is to either shoot each and every photo by yourself or choose pictures with as little license overhead as possible.
