Such a perfect, well thought(how do i say this, the lightbox work you did), fast and simplest plugin 🙂 just a suggestion: I wish there be one like this for unsplash too (or can be incorporated to this) & yes option for size too.

What a great plugin and I don't see any others like it. Since I use this with students in school I asked developer to add the SafeSearch option to the latest release and he did it! Now my students can safely search for images on PixaBay for the featured images I require of them on their posts. Wow!

This plugin breaks the divi builder. It took hours of testing to determine this plugin was the culprit, but as soon as I deactivated it, I could once again use the divi builder to build pages on my website.
