Where to get free assets?

  • Question
  • Updated 7 months ago
I like Camtasia's Assests but since I am not making money with my videos, I can't justify $200/year for them. Other assets I've found come with sometimes ominous copyright warnings so I avoid those as well.

I was just therefore wondering how folks here get additional assets for Camtasia like audio or images.

Thanks,

Perhaps try pexels.com for images?

Thanks! After a "problem" I had a while back using a Getty image (by accident, not that it mattered) on a web site (and the subsequent letter that arrived from Getty in the mail....), I really go out of my way to make sure I'm totally legal with any image that might be public.

(No more threatening letters from Getty or others....please.)

I bookmarked this excellent free site!

Hi there,

Have you been to the Snagit and Camtasia Asset sites? Once there, if you do a search, like for ALL VIDEOS, on the search results page, you will see an option to filter our the premium (paid) results and just get to the FREE content.


The free content, is free to Camtasia customers. There are videos, images, icons, etc.



I'm not sure if you have looked at the free assets, but you might find something there you like. AND, we add to our collection regularly.

Thanks for using Camtasia.

Hey Kelly,

Unfortunately, probably by design, lots of the stuff that's good on your site is $200/yr. subscription only.

Here are a few I use frequently:

Audio:

https://soundcloud.com/

For vector images, if you have an Adobe CC account, there are libraries where artists put up their work for free use.

Also, the links I shared always show how you can use them.

I do not know what types of videos you create, but you might consider purchasing a "pack" of things on Theme Forest:

https://themeforest.net/

The prices are really reasonable, take little out of your pocket, and the licenses are usually no-nonsense use-as-you like.

I hope that helps.

Just a few that I use often.

Some will require making a free account to download.
Some will require attribution.
Some both.

To start this is what I use when I am looking for something.

As with ANY sites, Do your research on the use terms or license terms.
It's on you to know them for the way you may want to use the images or sounds
