Useful but needs some work
By , for WP 4.1.1

This plugin works rather well but has a few problems that hold it back.

1) It periodically stops working unless you change your API key.
2) You can't properly select or multiselect the photo licenses you wan to to search. "All Rights reserved" should NOT be an option.
3) A nonstandard media button is added to the visual editor. It's really just a camera icon, not a true button, so it doies not communicate its function well.

Not enough
By , for WP 4.1

It lets you put pictures into your blog, yes. BUT

1. Not enough information about image size is displayed before you insert it.

2. You can't simply embed. The plugin makes you download the picture onto your server.

3. There's no template for attribution.

This should be part of WordPress
By , for WP 4.0

For the popularity of Creative Commons this plugin should be part of every WordPress installation.

Only the integration with featured images could be better.

Excellent Plugin
By , for WP 4.0

This is an excellent plugin and work great.

Many thanks to the developer.

update1: Takes a lot of resources of WordPress. Memory usage is huge.

So very easy to use
By , for WP 3.9.1

This is fantastic for the blogger or news writer who needs some interesting photography. It is especially nice that it handles the CC image copyright notice requirement.

Excellent plugin!
By , for WP 3.7

This plugin looks and works great!

It does everything I was hoping for it to do with speed and ease:
- Upload to the server
- Allow me to edit captions
- Insert the attribution link

At first I was disappointed that the app was pulling in only medium sized images, but then I realised you can change the the default to large or original size (under WordPress Settings Menu).

Well rounded and by far the best option available for inserting Flickr images

Not upgraded to the new media in WP
By , for WP 3.6

The plugin works but is not using the new media code in WP. Uninstalled.

Great utility, smart developer.

I've been using this plugin since about December. I was manually looking for CC images on Flickr when I discovered this plugin. From the comfort of your edit post window, you can easily search for, download, and insert an image into your post. The plugin also has a good amount of options, including one to include a link to the Creative Commons license.

Simple, quick, and clear
By , for WP 3.5.1

A highly useful WordPress extension that works nicely in combination with the Pixabay Images plugin. Great work!
