Unknown usually means you have to contact the photographer/site admin to request a quote, instead of dealing with credits or points. Sometimes it means I simply couldn’t find out how to access the prices!
What to do with free images:
ALWAYS check the licence and rights, and necessary actions to take in order to use the stock (like a link back to the photographer/website). Just because they’re free doesn’t mean you can use them willy nilly. They will have their own rules and rights. If you want more information you can read up on my article about who owns the copyright and when.
