The number of websites that offer images is constantly increasing.
Many of these websites offer a combination of free and paid images, some websites search multiple stock photo sites at the same time.
Many websites are set up as platforms with social media features: members are allowed to rate the images, follow authors or collections, create and save their own collections of images and of course share their own photos with CC0 on the platform.
