This is the best photo site I have seen. The search function is huge.
Great work Bruno, building up a brand bible at the moment and I was dreading the drudge of the photography section, looks like I'll be using pexels for that now :)
Care to share what you're working on with the search? I'd love the ability to filter my results down by tags/metadata after the results have been returned i.e. Search -> "#Business" Returned results, then remove 'office', 'apple', 'phone', '<x resolution', 'colour only'
But you have to check dozen of sites to find the photo you are looking for and you have to check the license of each photo. Pexels solves these problems.
Are you the developer behind Pexels?
Good job buddy!
Yes, great great job.
http://thestocks.im/ has this and a lot more.
Pexels also collects the best free photos from many sources. The advantage of Pexels is that all photos are under the Creative Commons Zero license (free for commercial use, no attribution required) and that you can search for photos. With Pexels it's easier to find a great photo without worrying about license issues.

So are the photos on TheStocks.im. Its just an aggregate that lists several sites exactly like Pexels and is in an iframe so you can browse them all from the same site.

No! The photos from Super Famous, Startup Stock Photos, Magdeleine and Getrefe are not under the CC0 license. If you use the photos from these sources you have to give credit, provide a link to the license, and indicate if changes were made.
No search function, so what's the point?
Some of the sites do. TheStocks.im just opens an iframe for each of the sites it has listed. But its all of the sites in one place, including pexels.
That's exactly what I've been waiting for to appear. Great work, Bruno! The value of having only CC0 images in one place + search is immense. Do improve the search and image tagging further, and I'm sure this project has a stellar future.
Thanks. I am currently working on a better search function :)
