There are many free gallery sites on the Internet, but most of them have a problem: Although there are many pictures, it is still difficult to find suitable photos from the search or classification filtering function.
Later, some AI and algorithm technologies were imported directly from the results; the page removes pictures with poor quality or too strong a sense of gallery. If you want the photos you find to maintain a certain texture and don’t want to spend too much time removing the inaccurate or impossible results, similar services can be used more.
The “Wunderstoc” to be introduced in this article is a free foreign library that claims to have more than tens of millions of Creative Commons licensed photos for users to download for free! There are also 100,000 photos using Public Domain (Public Domain Authorization). The source must be marked when used. You can edit and modify it freely. In addition to searching for images, you can also find them by classification, tags, or recent updates, etc. For photos, you can find a lot of very textured materials from the gallery.
It is worth mentioning that Wunderstock uses AI artificial intelligence search function to ensure that closer search results can be found when searching for CC-licensed photos. The gallery itself is also open for downloading original size images or providing optimized sizes for web pages. It can be used without registering and logging in.
If you want to pre-cut, flip, apply filters, or add text to your photos, Wunderstock also has an online photo editor function. You can edit photos before downloading without installing additional image editing software.
Open the Wunderstock website and enter the keywords of the photos you want to search. There is also a row of frequently used search words under the search box.
If you want to find a specific picture type, scroll down from the homepage and you will see a list of categories, such as nature, food, architecture, religion, transportation, animals, fashion, technology, tourism, people, sports, fitness, and business, etc. Some categories are larger in scope, and other small categories will be displayed after clicking to help users narrow the search scope.
Like other free galleries, Wunderstock will display a “filter” option in the search results, which can be customized to display vertical, horizontal or square photos.
Or use materials with specific authorization methods, such as photos that must be signed but commercial use is prohibited, must be signed, or use Public Domain (public domain authorization).
Entering the photo page will have information such as title, photographer, authorization method, number of views, number of downloads, etc. More relevant results can be extended from the tags below the photo.
Choose the size of the photo you want to download from the right. Wunderstock provides the original image size (original) and the size suitable for web pages. If you want to use it on the Internet, Best for Web may be a better choice. The photo is not as large as the original image. It may also be optimized with a smaller capacity and faster loading speed.
As mentioned earlier, Wunderstock provides an online editor, which can pre-process photos, such as cropping, flipping, filtering, adjusting colors, adding text arrows, or resizing. Although the functions are very basic, it is quite convenient, at least without downloading. Later, it would help if you opened the drawing software or other editing software, and you can complete simple tasks from the browser.
After downloading, Wunderstock will pop up a prompt screen. You must mark the original author, source website and authorization method to use the photo. The website directly gives you the template. Click “Copy” in the upper right corner to quickly access the mark so that you can change it when using the gallery photo.
