Hi there, My name is Kenneth Gotera and I'm part of the team here at Canva. I was doing a bit of research when I stumbled upon this page on : blog.website.com/post/the-ultimate-guide-to-completely-free-stock-photo-sites. I noticed that you link to a number of Photo Editor and was wondering if you have tried Canva? Here's a link: https://photo-editor.canva.com. We'd love to be included in your list. Basically, Canva is a simple, drag-and-drop, design software that’s completely online and free to use. It's been a very exciting adventure: we’ve been around for just over 27 months and already have 10 million users :) Please let me know if you are interested. Don't hesitate to ask any questions. Thank you for your time! Best Regards, Kenneth
