Overall Satisfaction with Pixabay

I need to find photos and videos for social media that are not copyrighted. This includes weekly postings on social media, as well as photos that may be used in a course or for ads. It addresses finding some photos and videos that everyone else isn't always using. Sometimes people use Canva so often that you see their photos everywhere and it doesn't let your brand show. I also needed to find music for some podcast advertising and there is a plethora of styles available.

Pros

  • They have such a great variety of different types of media to use.
  • I love that they have more than just photos and video to use.
  • The quality of their images and music is very professional.

Cons

  • One thing that kind of sticks out is that with so much to choose from, you can feel overwhelmed.
  • Some of the photos I sometimes can find separately by googling. In the music business, it seems like many photos rotate on the web so there isn't as much to pick from.
  • I didn't see an option for more vertical videos for use in Instagram or TikTok.
  • The many photos that are copyright free
  • The video that is copyright free
  • The music that is royalty free.
  • It has helped to make me look more professional.
  • It has given me new options for social media and putting together things for emails or ads.
  • Since it's free, I haven't had to spend money to get professional looking items.
The thing I like about Pixabay over Canva is the music available and the photos are not the same ones that Canva has. Sometimes I feel like Canva is so much more well-known that everyone uses them and then their social media posts start looking the same. It doesn't help you differentiate your brand. I feel like Pixabay might give you more options to help your brand stand out.

Yes

Would you buy Pixabay again?

No

It would be fantastic for professional-looking posts on Instagram, Facebook, websites, or maybe even as part of a YouTube video. I also think that any music that is used with VoiceOver could be fabulous because it could be used with presentations or as part of social media postings. It probably wouldn't be used as much for background on Zoom or to use video without either a voice-over or other text as part of it. I don't think the music should be used where someone thinks that you wrote it, so make sure that it is used with a VoiceOver or in a context where you can give credit to the composer.
