Can anyone list some websites that are copyright free?

Hello, everyone :blush:

I’m pretty new to the forums (just joined 3 days ago) but not to Episode as a whole.
When I first started writing on Episode, I had no idea about copyrighted backgrounds, overlays and art on Pinterest, Google and other sites. Now that I know better, I wouldn’t try to purposely take anyone’s hard work.
I usually stick to backgrounds on Pixabay or asking around on the forums and crediting the creators in my story.
The only Free To Use place I know about right now is Pixabay.

  • Can anyone list anymore websites for copyright free backgrounds? :thinking:
  • Websites for copyright free overlays? :thinking:
  • Is there a place you can get free outlines (probably not)? If not, are there people who will let you use outlines if credit is given?
  • If you have any type of Google Form for art, feel free to drop the link here! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Hopefully, this will help any newcomers like me looking for copyright free art in their stories :wink:

Another commercially free website for backgrounds/vector pngs :slight_smile:
It includes many of the same backgrounds as pixabay, however it has more and some are amazing quality.
