2,200,000+ Royalty Free Photos available right inside Stencil.Get Started Now
Stencil's built-in 2,200,000+ photos make creating images faster than you've ever imagined. We've partnered with the best image providers in the industry to bring millions of royalty-free Creative Commons "CC0" images right into Stencil. The old way of doing it was to go to another site, download an image, manually upload it, and then load it into your canvas. But since all the photos are built right into Stencil, millions of images are just a click away.
All of the background photos and icons in Stencil are royalty-free and safe to use! In fact, they're under a special public domain Creative Commons license called "CC0". That means you can use these photos however you want. We mean that literally. Personal, commercial, blog posts, posters... anything! Also: there's no attribution required whatsoever!
