How to get free photos for your Odoo website

Integrate your Odoo with Unsplash

Making photos by yourself is free but not always the best way to finish up your website. You can't download any photos from Google and just place it on your website as there may be some licensing related issues. On this blog, I am going to show you how to get free photos for your website straight from Unsplash - free stock photos library. Thanks to integration you can browse Unsplash photos in Odoo and download the chosen ones.

Register on Unsplash

Simply visit unsplash.com and register with just a couple of clicks.

You can now browse, download as well as publish photographs (as long as they are in good quality and over 5mp).

You can finish your process here if you want and manually upload the photos. However, Odoo offers integration so it can carry on the downloads for you.

Unsplash is a great place for free photos. However, if you want to be absolutely sure of the finest quality or you want to get fully licensed photos to consider using Shutterstock - one of the largest sources of royalty-free stock images, photos, videos, and music.

You can also upload your photos to Shutterstock to get additional income.
