Overall Satisfaction with Pixabay

I use Pixabay to search for relevant, compelling images to use in design presentations such as posters or digital pdf files. The images found on Pixabay can be used to convey different moods and feelings to achieve the desired effect within presentations whether they be in a digital or printed format. Additionally, I used Pixabay to search for flat icons to use in infographics to visually display research findings or design principles in a graphic format.
  • Pixabay makes it easy to filter your search to the format you are looking for, whether that be photos, illustrations, graphics, or something else.
  • Pixabay provides many different options of free as well as paid content and makes it clear what falls into which category through the way the website is designed.
  • Pixabay includes various tags on each image, expanding search results based on similar keywords.
  • I would like to see Pixabay get even more specific with the different categories of media that they offer. For example, within "Illustrations", having subcategories of "Line Illustrations", or "Cartoon Illustrations" so users can get even more exact about what they are looking for.
  • It would be helpful if there were a simple way to locate images with transparent backgrounds.
  • It could be interesting if Pixabay included sets/groupings of similar images already rounded up for easy use.
  • Search Bar
  • Search Filters
  • Free Downloads
  • More vivid presentations
  • Easier to read infographics
  • Compelling supporting images for client presentations

Pixabay is an adequate database for searching for images, including vectors and illustrations. It is well suited for locating images to be used in infographics, mood boards, and design presentations. However, it would not be my first choice for this as it can be difficult to locate images of specific styles.
