Nice! Installed and tested, it works perfectly.
Looking forward to see Drag & Drop (from Plugin to Artboards) added to the API. This will make this kind of plugin so much nicer to use :slight_smile:


Nice! What sites are you using for stock photos?

Even the “free” sites like Unsplash and Pexels require some kind of API keys that limit downloads/month and become costly if you have many users…


We support Unsplash, Pexels, and Pixabay for now. The peak in API usage was 500 req/hour on the Unsplash API and the limit is 5000 req/hour so, for now, they are enough :wink:

If we manage to exceed the limitation we would probably round-robin the API vendor to maximize the available requests. Unsplash and Pixabay both have 5000 req/hour each and Pexels has 200 req/hour so in theory, we have more than 10k req/hour which is plenty. I sure hope it will come to that but their “free tier” will probably be enough.
