From peanut butter and jelly to Lennon and McCartney, avocado toast and beyond, some things are just better together. Perfect pairings, dynamic duos; whatever you call them, whenever we see legendary items matched together we can’t help but feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

And since we’re all about bringing the warm and fuzzy to all of you wonderful people at home, we’re about to hand you another avocado toast…er, I mean wonderfully epic match made in heaven: the Designer Toolset and Pixabay.

For those of you that don’t know, Pixabay is pretty much the bee’s knees. It’s a glorious website that offers over 430,000 stunning stock photos, vector graphics and art illustrations–completely free.

Take a deep breath now, cause here’s where it gets *extra* amazing.

Because we want you to have all of the nice things in life, we’ve gone and integrated Pixabay within our Designer Toolset, meaning you can access any one of those hundreds of thousands of photos and use them to create whatever your heart desires. Here’s a little 411 on how it works:

Open up the Designer Toolset and head over to ‘Image Manager’. You can manage any and all of your images for whatever project you’re working on here. Click on the Pixabay logo to open up a library of searchable images, type in your keyword and you’re all set:

It’s not all just about the numbers (though six figures is nothing to scoff at, eh?). Part of what makes Pixabay so great is its simplicity: aka you can choose any image you like without ever having to worry about crediting images. Hoorah!

And while our Design Elements section is chock loaded with vector elements and other goodies, if you ever find yourself in short supply just pop on over to Pixabay, where there’ll be plenty waiting for you in store (a cool 50k or so…no biggie):

So whether you’re looking to build yourself a social media header from scratch or simply looking for a nifty little graphic to add onto your template, we invite you to explore the wonder that is the Designer + Pixabay. Design with ease and explore it well, and we wish you all the best in your adventures to come.
