Hey guys ,

Where can I find hi resolution images related to technology? I need it mainly for my blog and it should not be copyrighted.
I have looked through unsplash but I could not find any technology related pics in that. I wan hi res images of laptops , mobiles, and everything else.
Where can I find them ?

Thank you.

And if this post is not in the correct section , then please shift it :p :)

if you are willing to pay, i think shutterstock is the best or if you want them for free, search on google images>search tools>usage right then select one so that it filters images which are non-copyrighted

The only problem with Google is that it doesn't provide quality images. As Iam starting, I don't have enough income to buy images only.So, is there any other website from where I could gather some hi res images ?

Few months back getty images announced that they allow low res. images can be used for free without infringing copyrights. But I am not sure whether it can be used for commercial purpose.

for which product you want?
go to web site, and look in the press or news section. Then look for images, press kits. there are usually high resolution images of products available for the media. at times this is in the press release section. some need sign up, mostly the audio companies.

giving you links to some, I think you meant clean product shots, not high resolution, but this is where you get both:
sony : Picasa Web Albums - Sony Xperia
canon : Photo Library - Canon India - Personal
apple : Apple (India) - Apple Press Info - Product Images & Info
htc : About HTC

another way to get them is from sites that have high resolution images of the products, or rather the official sites only have the high resolution images next to the products.

I don't know as I was never into it. I guess there should be a place where you can get images for free. (But I am not sure, they will let it use for commercial purpose).
- You can buy yourself a camera and and take the picture of the products you want. Done. Peace of mind. No copyright issues.
- If any of your friend, relatives or anyone you know are hobbyist, you can ask them to take photographs of things you want.

hmm, I think you are talking about new releases? if its watermarked it is shot by a photographer
if not, it is mostly from a press release or press kit. if the web site does not have, send email from contacts asking for press images, you can get directly like that also from the company. or you may get url directing you to a dedicated press site itself
and another option is take screenshots from high resolution video

They click most of the images themselves as they get most of the latest launched gadgets in hand...

Editing and removing watermark can cause some serious issues or we can do it for our blog ? Plus I cannot afford to buy the gadgets and take photoes my self .. So..

Oh thanks but removing the watermark by using Photoshop is illegal right ?

Until they identify everything is fine...If one site sees that you have copied all their images and removed watermark then it will be trouble...
As of official site you wont find any watermarks ....

lol they don't buy, the gadgets are sent to them by the companies, at times before launch
which ones you want specifically?
if you are willing to take your own photos then do it at a retail outlet such as croma or next?

and yes, it's not ok to remove watermarks
