Does your presentation need images? Absolutely! Photos, videos and symbols can boost the visual appeal of your presentation and help your audience understand and remember your message. Plus, you look more professional. It’s a win-win-win. 

Next time you need a photo, video or graphic, check the list below.  


Visit Unsplash to find high-quality, royalty-free stock photos to jazz up your presentations. With over 330,000 artists contributing to a growing library of images, it’s a great source to have in your back pocket. Plus, the Application Programming Interface (API) makes it easy for developers to add the Unsplash library into websites, platforms or applications like PowerPoint.  


Check out Freepik for a huge library of graphic resources like photos, videos, vectors, illustrations, icons and templates. You won’t have to hunt for the right visual—the platform has search and filtering options that make it easy to find what you’re looking for, and, like Unsplash, the contributor community continuously uploads fresh and innovative designs.  


If Unsplash and Freepik aren’t doing the trick, stop by Pexels for another library of high-quality, royalty-free photos and videos. With a user-friendly interface and a free API that integrates seamlessly with popular presentation platforms, Pexels is a solid destination for all your presentation image needs. Don’t miss the unique selection of stock footage, either. Splicing videos into your presentations can help you engage your audience, build an emotional connection and boost retention.

From graphic templates to stock videos, royalty-free music and sound effects, Envato is the place to go if you’re looking for an all-in-one solution to your presentation needs.
