Overall Satisfaction with Pixabay
Pixabay's free stock photos complement the content we publish on our blog. Each new article can require several images that match the theme and topic, and we turn to Pixabay to source these images. Almost all blogs rely on stock photos at least some of the time, and Pixabay has been our go-to source for a decade.
- Fast image search

- Easy to use interface
- High resolution photo quality
- Peace of mind with image licensing
- Reduce time required to source new images.
- Improved article publication turnaround time.

Pixabay has a few key features that stand out. The search results load fast, with an easy user interface and advanced filtering options. I often travel as I work, and at times my internet connection can be slow or unstable. Even on a slower connection, the search results are snappy. If a search term is too broad, it can recommend related keywords to search for - this helps to find the right image faster. Each photo contains additional metadata (such as keywords, camera make & model) which helps to better identify the context of the image.

We receive content from various contributors and must find matching images that have appropriate licenses. Photography copyright is a significant risk for online publishers with potentially harsh penalties. Pixabay is a reliable partner, as well knows the specific licensing requirements which are easy to follow. Pixabay reduces the risk significantly. While the range and quality of images are very good, they do not compare to paid stock photo libraries, as one would expect. If you need a highly specific image, then there is a chance it might not be on Pixabay, but it's always worth a check.
