Hello everyone,

I have a question: do I need to cite the source of photos I use, if I take them from some free stock photo website such as Unsplash, Pixabay etc?

I wanted to write a short text 'Image Source' and that link it to the image on the website. Is this necessary, if the picture is completely free?

Thank you in advance :)

You can see the terms and conditions for each image on each platform. For most images on Pixabay and other free sources you do not need to cite the source, but you can see the terms for the specific image when you are about to download it on Pixabay.
