  • Pros: 

    Lots of images to choose from. The WP plugin is convient too.


    It's still unclear the use license. Even though it lets you give credit to the photographer, you still have to leave the plugin to confirm.

    I've used Pixabay since the beginning. A few people I met on Squidoo (takes me back) were part of the development team. Because of that, I've stuck with Pixabay - watched them grow, and am very pleased to use their site for my stock images.

  • Pros: 

    Great photos, searching is easy. And it’s free. For start-ups and not for profits, this is invaluable.


    Not for free. And the paid ones are only marginally better.

    I animate primarily Pixabay photos in software such as Ripl or Lumen5 to create short animations for social media marketing. Takes the static imagery to the next level. I share this valuable resource with everyone!

    Easy to use, good variety of images


    I don't know if I should use English or American spelling in searches

    Pixabay is a great resource for images that are ok to use on your website.

    Easy to use and implement in any programming language,

    Lots of search options,

    Safe search,

    Fast response from API server


    Low API rate limits, maybe more options should be provided like paid subscriptions

    Perfect for any kind of app, images from Pixabay are free to use in personal and commercial projects.
