Thank you for sharing with the community. I have tried the plugin on two sites and very happy with the results. Real time saver for me. I've been manually grabbing images from these sites for long time and now your plugin makes it so simple. Truely a 5-star plugin.

The recent addition of Openverse really makes this one of the best (if not the best) plugins for adding free / creative commons / public domain images/photos/etc. libraries/services to your site. Some of the image libraries can have limited offerings so this providing as many of these libraries as possible to then pull from really helps with that situation to be able to find the best asset you're looking for.

Love it. A fantastic plugin if you need to add... wait for it… instant images! Great for designers, development teams, content generators and for the end-user. We can now – finally – remove the bloated, outdated and imposible to navigate trashcan of a media resource folder from our server. Thank you.
