Overall Satisfaction with Pexels

I use Pexels for more natural, energetic, and vibrant shots for my design material. Also, as you can obtain free stock, it is a great tool for last-minute jobs, especially social posts.
  • Natural shots
  • Energetic shots
  • Diversity within imagery
  • To have more corporate imagery in your library
  • To have a more elaborate searching system - can be a bit basic, so it can be hard to find images on certain topics
  • Free stock
  • Natural shots
  • Keyword recommended search options
  • No negative impact as it is free
  • Improved our imagery library and use of more natural photography
Overall, Pexels is a really helpful and easy site to use to get royalty-free imagery. It has been highly beneficial to me in all my design projects obtaining dynamic and natural images that some large-paying stock sites can not provide. Sometimes you can find more variety at other similar sites like Unsplash, but Pexels and Unsplash are my two go-to sites for free imagery due to their usability and easy navigation through the site. Being user-friendly is a big reason why I continue to use them, as I need easy, fast access to assets in order to complete my design projects. Pexels does not require you to sign in or register like other sites, so it removes all that faffing and saves me so much time. I highly recommend using and looking at Pexels.

Pexels is great for more natural shots, daily life shots, still life, and props when used in my corporate and charitable design projects. I use them heavily when designing charity designs as these charities do not tend to have a budget for stock imagery. Pexel allows me access to professional and dynamic imagery making their work look professional and trustworthy. Pexels is great for events and daily things like weddings, fairs, shopping, and young people but not as good for very specific topics imagery in any industry, especially corporate.
