Finding the right free stock image to use for a project often means searching several stock photo sites. LibreStock is a one stop search engine that searches thousands of high quality photos from select stock photo sites so you can find what you need without leaving the site. If you're in need of a video, LibreStock also scans and indexes free videos from stock footage sites.
To find photos you can either scroll the photos on the main page or search using the search box. If you click on Menu, a list of popular tags will be displayed. Clicking on a tag brings up the photos for that category including how many photos use that tag.
Here's some of the stock photo sites that LibreStock searches:
- Negative Space
- ISO Republic
- Foodie Factor, for specialty food and nutrition photography

The site is ad funded and the ads are unobtrusive and the ads are easily identified. It's a good option if you don't want to search any of the many free stock photo sites.
