Free image download site, Pixabay review.
Today I would like to briefly share the pros and cons of using Pixabay(www.pixabay.com), a free image download site without concerning the copyrights.
Pixabay is a vibrant community of creatives, sharing copyright free images, videos and music.
All content such as images, videos, music on Pixabay can be used for free (no fee, no cost) for commercial and noncommercial use across print and digital, except in the cases mentioned in "What is not allowed". Attribution is not required. Giving credit to the artist or Pixabay is not necessary but is always appreciated by our society.
Pixabay makes money through its traffic, social media, email, and affiliate marketing. This is the reason why it is possible to create a service that provides users with free use of all content on this platform.
Therefore, you can use images of Pixabay on your blog very freely. It's 100% free to use and all photos are personal and commercial use ready.
Platforms of the 'stock' family, an affiliate system created to provide revenue to image artists, are also emerging. It is also a BM model that has already been actively made in foreign countries. It is a structure in which photographers share profits through a subscription system for various vector images and photo images. So that photographers can publish higher-quality photos, and subscribers through regular payment It is a system that allows you to freely use high-quality photos. Pixar Bay is a platform that was previously only provided for free, and its sponsors made profits through a place called 'Shutterstock'. As of 2021, we created our own 'eye stock' site and changed the method to collect photographers directly. Source: https://polaris5023.tistory.com/163 [Polaris Blog:Tistory]
Pixabay, a platform that provides these various functions, consists of the following main menus.
Just search for the image you want in the search bar like below. Even if you search in a language of another country, the search is performed according to that language. For example, in my case, even if I search directly in Korean, images are found.
If you registered it successfully, you can see the below menu
Personally, the advantage of creating an account on Pixar Bay and sharing free images is that I can contribute to the community and easily promote my work and profession.
I haven't started in earnest yet, but I'm satisfied with the high preference for specific images.
