Comments from some of those who selected Pixabay as one of their Top 10 Tools in 2016

“All the images that I now use on the blog and in my presentations come from Pixabay. It’s a photo sharing community similar to Flickr but the image quality is, in my opinion, much higher It is a tiny site when compared to FlickR (690,000 images compared to 6 billion) but the quality is excellent and all images and videos on Pixabay are released free of copyrights under Creative Commons CC0. People may download, modify, distribute, and use them royalty free for anything they like, even in commercial applications. I always attribute them to Pixabay although attribution is not required.” Andrew Jacobs, L&D Manager, UK

“A great source for copyright free photos to use in presentations.” Harold Jarche, Consultant, Canada

“beautiful pictures to use in presentations, no attribution needed.” Chris Wildermuth, University/College teacher, USA
