Where should I get creative-commons licensed photographs?

I have heard of pixabay and unsplash. Are there any others or are those the best? Do any have APIs?

    Free (do whatever you want) high-resolution photos.

      I've actually used Unsplash a little longer than a year, but a "1 Year" button is all that's available to select on Product Hunt. Unsplash gets more new stock photos to use all the time, which is a great thing. Other than the search engine needing keyword updates, this is great for all bloggers, writers, designers, and so on.

      Unsplash is an amazing resource. When I started designing/developing purchasing expensive stock photos was one of the only ways of consistently getting images to use in design/web projects.

      With Unsplash and Pexels, etc. though now I have access to an almost unlimited library of images. I've used Unsplash for projects all the way from mobile apps, websites, to billboard advertisements. Best part is I can just sent my clients the link and they can browse through the images themselves and send me the ones they like.

      Overall an AWESOME resource. There are some minor annoyances like the addition of features that I feel just add clutter and don't add to the core value proposition (but that may just be me, and I won't name them so you can form your own opinion). My FAVORITE feature though is where they suggest giving the photographer credit - SO important and underrated.

      When you have people providing as awesome resource as this it's only fair to thank them. Unsplash is a fantastic site and I highly recommend it to everyone... My one gripe is that I don't think they need to keep adding features.

    You can try pexels: https://www.pexels.com/. If you need their API, you will need to email them. Here's the page where you can get more info on their API: https://www.pexels.com/api/

    AI to find images that suit to your project.

    This is a little like pexels but they try to filter out the low quality images through AI. It searches across the leading paid and free providers. You can find out about their api here: https://api.everypixel.com/
