Can't get it to work
By , for WP 3.9.1

Tried and tried. Waste of time.

Useless
By , for WP 3.9.1

While photodropper brings up the photos it doesn't insert them into WP, just goes to the regular media page.

I noticed that, although WordPress has been updated recently, the plugin hasn't been updated since September 2013. Further, the many support complaints that it's "broken" have not been answered. A shame, because this could be a fabulous plugin.

Broken and no support, serious copyright flaw
By , for WP 3.9

The idea is great, but even though it installs fine, it does not work.
I could accept the terms (and state that I use a commercial site), and could search and find a lot of great images quickly.

I chose one, but it never inserted, just kept on 'saving photo'. To kill time, I checked the original on Flickr, which to my surprise had a CC-NC license that FORBID it on commercial sites! So even if the insert image would work, this is a no go.

Combined with the fact that apparently all attributions disappear when disabling the plugin (as ALL past users will do as it is no longer working) and lack of support for many months, means this plugin is now worthless. Shame.

Pictures would not upload
By , for WP 3.8.1

I really wanted this plug-in to work but it just would not save any photos to my posts. Maybe it needs an update but it simply would not work. Also the parameters may need to be changed in order to improve the search function. The photos do not match the keyword search well at all.

Needs updating?
By , for WP 3.7.1

It may be needing updated, but I could never get the photos to actually appear in my blog posts once I chose them. I attempted to use it for a week, but ended up deleting the plugin when I just could not get the images to appear in a published post.

Fix the popup!
By ,

This is a great idea but on my multisite setup the popup is really annoying had to uninstall, fix that and I will reinstall and give a better rating.

Annoying Popup
By , for WP 3.4.2

A popup keeps appearing on each refresh, and the plugin hangs when trying to load an image
