There are so many websites which provide Stock Photos. Some websites are paid whether some are free. Some websites give free images but require a back-link from your website.

Before starting, do you know what is a Stock Photo? If no, then I have given a small introduction of Stock Photo.

Stock Photo:

Stock Photos are simply the photos which are available for personal as well as Commercial use.

So any photo which you can download from any image library/website for your Commercial purpose is a Stock Photo.

Quality of Photos at Pexels

If you ask for Quality of Photos, then according to me, it is fine.

Almost all ordinary photos are of good quality. But if you search for some photos which are less popular then quality may be below average.

And not all but maximum photos which comes in the search result are related to your search query.

But sometimes, if you search for a photo, then sometimes you may get different photos which do not have any connection with your search query.

Website Usability

Website of Pexels ( is user-friendly. It is simple and easy to search for photos at Pexels.

The only problem comes with the advertisement.

Although there is a line above ads saying "Sponsored Photos", but that is small enough that anyone can ignore this.

And then we may get confused with the images and ads. Rest all is good.



My rating for Pexels: 4.5/5.
