A photo is worth 1,000 words, right? If that’s the case, then you need to be using images when developing high school promotion materials.
Whether it’s a hallway flyer or a social media post, it’s imperative to use images when publicizing high school events. Experts claim social media posts that include images produce 650% more engagement compared to posts that only contain text.
If you’re looking for a fast and easy way to access hundreds of free images for your high school marketing materials, we’ve got you covered. Keep reading to learn our top three choices for finding free images with superior quality.
1. Canva for Images and Graphics
Canva is a top graphic design and marketing software for beginners. Not only does it host thousands of free images, but Canva also has premade marketing materials for all occasions, including a school event.
Once you’ve chosen your template, you will see a toolbar on the left side of the screen. The third option down is “Photos.” Click this and type what you’re looking for. Canva will display hundreds of free, high-quality images for you to select.
In addition to images, under the “Elements” tab, Canva provides graphics and stickers to include in your promotional materials. You can browse through Canva’s extensive collection or type exactly what you’re looking for into the search bar.
If you have a premium Canva account, all of the photos and graphics are free. If you don’t pay for a Canva membership, there are still a variety of free images and designs available.
2. Adobe Spark for a Creative Workspace
Adobe has plenty of free images to use, so designers can enhance their marketing materials.
Adobe Spark is a workspace made for easy creative solutions. It gives users the option of uploading photos or choosing from a variety of Adobe’s high-quality, free images from Unsplash.
While in the Adobe Spark workspace, select the “Add” option from the dropdown list. Then click “Find Free Photos.” You will be directed to Adobe’s photo library, where you can search for specific pictures to match your design.
3. Pexels for Thousands of Photo Collections
Unlike Canva or Adobe Spark, Pexels is not a graphic design workspace. It’s an online database that provides users with royalty-free images.
Pexels’s goal is to help both beginner graphic designers as well as new photographers. The designers get access to excellent images while photographers can advertise their skills for free.
When on the Pexels website, simply type in what you’re looking for in the search box. The site will generate a list of free photographs that you can download to your computer. It will also provide information on the photographer in case you want to give them credit for the image.
