Pexels App for Mac and Windows
The native Pexels app for Mac and Windows computers helps users to access the entire library of free stock photos and videos. Your information in the Pexels accounts will be synced across the app and regular website.
Pexels Photoshop Plugin
This Photoshop plugin can improve the workflow of the designers. We can access the whole library of free photos in Photoshop. The plugin will add a small palette/window (similar to any palette on the Photoshop) on the Photoshop where we can search and find images. When we click the images, it is automatically added to the Photoshop document or canvas.
This plugin is very convenient for graphic and web designers because they don’t have to leave Photoshop and open the browser or Pexels’ native App for finding and downloading required images. It can be done inside Photoshop1
Pexels: Free Stock Images (Pexels’ WordPress Plugin)
Pexels’ WordPress plugin allows users to find images without leaving WordPress dashboard. We can find the photos and download them to the WordPress Media Library.
MS Office Add-In
This is not an official app from Pexels, but they recommend it on their website. This add-on will help to find, download and use Pexels images in any MS Office application including Word and PowerPoint.
My favorite feature of the Pexels is it allows us to find images based on the specific colors. When you open an image, Pexels will create a color palette of main colors on the image, and you can find it below the image. You can click any of the colors in the color palette, and you will get a bunch of images containing the same color.
In that page, you will have more options on the color palette, and you can click any color to find more images.
Provides Meta Data
We can find the metadata of the photos on the website which is greatly helpful for graphic designers. The details like the camera used, aperture value, ISO and focal length will help designers when they want to use the image for image composition. Pexels doesn’t provide shutter speed, but that is not important.
