Free fonts, graphics, templates, add-ons!


You can pay for credits which can be used to accumulate elements and fonts, BUT you don’t have to. Even without paying anything, you can get 6 free things every Monday–things ranging from fonts to filters and effects to graphics to Photoshop add-ons and blog templates. You can also sell your creations on this website.

Photo Editing and Graphic Design Website


PicMonkey is my all time favorite tool for creating book covers and banners and ads. I have a yearly subscription but you can still do a lot without paying for anything. They’ve upgraded a lot of their tools over the years and added some helpful tricks. They also allow you to store images on their site in what they call your Hub, but that may only be for those with a subscription. Either way, PicMonkey is super helpful for those looking for a free or more affordable editor.

An outstanding collection for Photoshop that allows designers to quickly create fantastic scenes that look straight out of a storybook.

The pack contains overlays, textures, several brushes, and over a dozen unique actions including fog, colour prep, and colour filters that are all editable and do not automatically flatten.

I put up a free photo now and then for any purpose, commercial or personal. I think for wattpad the favorite may be “our moon” if you have werewolves. I’m also happy to take requests.

So I’ve created a list of commercial free image sites and put them all on a google doc that anyone can view and comment on. I’d paste them all but there’s over 50 of them and honestly that would be a really long post. If you know of any others and think I should add them to the list, feel free to shoot me a message!

Also, I didn’t put deviantart.com on here but it’s a great site too, as long as you pay attention to the rules of each user.
