Great place to get out there

I am a photographer and I like to upload my photos on here because it really does help photographers get out there and let others see their vision and what they see. Would recommend for anyone who is looking to get their photos out there!

I love this app. Super easy to use and absolutely the best way to get beautiful backgrounds that are free to use. I also use it with my students so they can get professional images for projects without a big hassle.

Love Pexels, app needs work

I love using the web version of pexels - it’s always my go-to for stock photography but the app is pretty glitchy. The pages don’t scroll fluidly and downloading an image either doesn’t work at all or takes a very long time. Hoping they make some improvements because I’d love to use the app.
