Photographers & Illustrators Upload Your Images

What is FreeImagesLive

FreeImagesLive allows photographers and illustrators to easily share, showcase and promote their photography and artworks. Our platform features tools that allow photographers and designers to get the most from Creative Commons stock images.


So what is different about freeimages?

There are lots of websites where you can upload, share images, create portfolios etc; Target Audience is difference...

We started freeimageslive specifically as a platform to promote our own website and photography work by leveraging creative commons licenses, blogging and social media. Having proven success ourselves we realised we had created a promotion tool we could easily share with other photographers. Working together we provide a better service to image users and develop new ideas as well as promoting each others work.

Have a look at the images below, or any of the images on the site and you'll see each image page is structured to benefit the photographer - if you are comparing sites to share your work on, you might want to check:

  • Each image page has the option of linking to your website (twice in our case) and your portfilio page (3x!)

  • Images maintain your embedded copyright metadata - download the preview image or the full size photo and you'll find metadata the photographer added still completely intact

  • Clearly defined license requirements so visitors understand how to use and attribute your images
