What do you like best?

The best thing of Pixabay is it's licensing, they do not stop you to use their stock images for commercial use. You can use these images or photos from personal to commercial use without paying anything. They appreciate the attribution but it is even not forced, like other online tools. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

You may not find any result for many important and widely used keywords, means less image stock than paid ones. Each image can't be downloaded in the illustrator or svg format. There are pre defined sizes of each image, you have to choose the size out of these only. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I utilize Pixabay's sans quality photographs for blog articles, aides, and web-based media. Simple to look for the kind of photograph dependent on the point you're expounding on. I like being able to download different sizes as well. I like it when new, arbitrary pictures show when I first open the website - invigorates innovativeness and how I may have the option to join them into my showcasing/blogging. I additionally like the free record. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

PixaBay doesn't generally have the correct photograph for the task I'm dealing with. It would be vastly improved on the off chance that they could foresee my necessities and have those pictures accessible when I search for them. Until their AI gets sufficiently refined to foresee my requirements before I am mindful of those necessities, I should agree to the eminence free stock pictures effectively accessible on the site. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend pixabay because its the best so far. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I feel like the photograph labeling is mistaken now and again. In case I'm looking for "gatherings", I don't have to see photographs of felines. I wind up sitting around idly figuring out some photographs that having nothing to do with the subject I'm searching for. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I use Pixabay's quality, free photos for blog articles, guides, and social media. Easy to search for the type of photo based off of the topic you're writing about. I like having the ability to download various sizes too. I like it when new, random images display when I first open the site -- stimulates creativity and how I might be able to incorporate them into my marketing/blogging. I also like the free account. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I feel like the photo tagging is inaccurate at times. If I'm searching for "meetings", I don't need to see photos of cats. I end up wasting time sorting through some photos that having nothing to do with the subject I'm looking for. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Going to one site to find quality photos is a huge benefit -- makes my job as a marketer/blogger easier. Easy to search for images which saves time.

What do you like best?

Every website needs stock photos and PixaBay fills that need with royalty free images that can be used without attribution. This is helpful for content that will be shared on social media because posts with an image tend to get more engagement than text-only posts. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

PixaBay does not always have the right photo for the project I'm working on. It would be much better if they could predict my needs and have those images available when I look for them. Until their machine learning becomes sophisticated enough to predict my needs before I am aware of those needs, I will have to settle for the royalty free stock images already available on the site. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problem solved by PixaBay is stock photography for website design projects and content marketing. These images are very important for the user experience of content on a website and social media marketing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Pixabay has a large variety of public domain pictures and graphics to fit your graphic design needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Though, it is supposed to be all public domain works, I still see pictures with material that could be copyrighted. I know that Disney is very touchy about pics taken in their parks, etc. So, I would have to research those before using them. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

What do you like best?

Many of the photographers that upload to Pixabay are actually very good photographers with a great vision. The photos aren't stale and stiff like many of the stock images available on other websites. The photos on Pixabay are often full of emotion and have a nice human touch to them. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The library isn't as large as some of the other stock image websites that cost more money. There aren't that many updates with new photos on a regular basis. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I would recommend buying your images whenever possible using Adobe stock or Istockphotos.

I would recommend this for mock ups or non commercial projects. There is just too much of a copyright issue if you risk using this site for other purposes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Pixabay has a vast library of stock content that is submitted from countless photographers and creators and don't require a monetary payment for licensing. With all of the stock photo websites out there that charge super high fees for photos with all sorts of confusing licensing types, it's refreshing to find a company that execute a successful business model that benefits all involved. Many of the stock images are more artistic in nature than the corporate look of many stock photos on paid stock content websites. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I think that it can sometimes be hard to find images for very niche type uses. Even though there are boatloads of images for just about any niche on big stock websites, the Pixabay open environment has less incentive for photo owners to submit their work and therefore leads Pixabay to have fewer photos than other websites. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

To keep the Pixabay website going and to entice new photographers to submit photos, I'd suggest acknowledging the content owners as much as possible in the media you use their photos. You can at least place a credit and link in the description of videos if putting the credit in the video itself is not possible. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We can use Pixabay photos for our website background images, videos, Facebook posts, print materials and other media projects. Instead of searching through Google images for free images that may or may not have copyright restrictions, we can rest much easier knowing that Pixabay images have been filtered through a copyright process that allows us to use the images unrestricted for personal or business use with or without crediting the content owner.

What do you like best?

There aren't many steps required from the point of loading the Pixabay home page to having and image downloaded and ready for use on my computer. The selection of photos and variety of themes and topics the images relate to are vast for a website that offers free photos. Another great thing about Pixabay are its licensing terms, which don't require the user to post credits or follow any other stringent guidelines related to use or editing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

An open media asset resource like Pixabay usually means that the photos we get will be less unique since more people have access to them. I think if there were more types of media and possibly more generic photos with white backgrounds, I think that could help to make some of the image more versatile for our business and marketing design uses. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For stock photos, Pixabay is a good place to look if you're on a budget or maybe want to experiment with some designs without have to actually pay for photo licenses. You should be careful when using photos from Google searches since the licensing terms are not always very clear. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Pixabay is great first option for us to look for photos that we can use for many different design purposes. The community of photographers in Pixabay helps to bring a relatively wide selection of images for us to choose from every month. I often see awesome new images posted to Pixabay every week. We can save on stock photo expenses and don't have to focus so much on stringent licensing terms. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Free images that can be used for commercial purposes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The showing of Shutterstock photos that are not available for you to use unless you obtain them through Shutterstock. Some of them are better. If you click on a photo thinking that it is a photo you can use, after clicking on it you find out that it is not a photo you can use. It is not a Pixabay photo.

Also, for some searches there are not a lot of photos available and I have seen a lot of animated or cartoon drawing like photos. I also dislike blocked photos due to (what looks like) the nature-content being presented with photos. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to add pictures to my blog posts, Facebook posts, and an e-book manuscript that I started. The benefits that I have realized is the ability to use the photos free of charge for non commercial use with no attribution to the author. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Simply Pixabay I fall in love, it is an excellent social platform, free in its entirety, everything in Pixabay I can use freely without permission, everything is free of rights and there is no need to mention the source. And the best thing is that you can use it both for personal use and for commercial use, therefore it opens my work panorama enormously, it is super easy to use and has one of the most attractive and thriving visual platforms in the medium. For those reasons it is my favorite. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I really do not see anything negative in this great community is a happy place to exchange art and appreciate the different ways in which they are presented. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a very useful tool for us as photography lovers, there are too many categories of photos that you can take advantage of for the different occasions that are required, you will not have any legal problem when using the photos found in Pixabay and they will have no cost for your company, what more could you ask for from this incredible platform. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Despite wanting to be independent in each of our creations, we don't always have what our customers want, PixaBay greatly expands our gallery by giving us more photo opportunities that are free of copyright, saving us a lot of legal problems and supplying our lack of photos in areas that we do not cover, it has been really useful for us.
