If you came here looking for free red stock photos, you’re in the right place. Often we need a photo to fit a certain color to match an existing design or color scheme. Colors have different emotions and meanings attached to them, depending on what culture you belong to.
Being one of the first colors in prehistoric art, the pigments of red were used by the Ancient Egyptians and Mayans as ceremonial face painting. The Chinese also used the color red to paint early pottery and the walls of palaces.
Red is the color at the end of the visible spectrum of light, next to orange and opposite violet. It is a primary color in the RGB color model and the CMYK color model, and is the complementary color of cyan. While red is the color most associated with love, it also the color most frequently associated with danger, hatred, anger, aggression and war. But in China, India and many other Asian countries it is the color of symbolizing happiness and good fortune.
In this post I have selected 30 images that feature red as their primary color. They range from abstract backgrounds to pictures of food, objects and people. I hope you find something that you can use for your current or future projects, enjoy!
