Overall Satisfaction with Pixabay

I use Pixabay to find royalty-free images that I can use in presentations and multimedia. I've also used them to find images relating to various types of marketing. This allows me to find pictures without worrying about copyright or the specific permissions around how an image can be used.

Pros

  • Find royalty free images
  • Lots of content
  • Outline usage terms clearly

Cons

  • Make it more obvious what is "paid" content.
  • Better library of images for certain topics.
  • No easy way to sort results.
  • Easy to find license requirement
  • Good selection of photos
  • Good searching
  • Able to add photos to commercial products without fear of violating copyright.
  • Do not need to rely on Google Images with questionable permission usage.
  • Good choice of photos to choose from to give several options.

Did implementation of Pixabay go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Pixabay again?

Yes

Pixabay is great if you do not have a budget for stock image libraries. If you want to use quality images but not worry about copyright, then Pixabay is a great alternative. Each picture clearly indicates the usage rules (most are "free for commercial use"), so you can safely use your images without worrying about breaking laws. Keep in mind that some photos do require attribution, although some do not. It is best to consult the Pixabay licensing requirements within each image. Do be careful, though, as the pictures on the top are part of a paid subscription. The pictures below that are what is free to use.
