Being able to search for vertical or horizontal images is one of the most popular user requests we’ve gotten here at Pexels. Now that ask has become reality with the new Pexels search filters.

We’re always working to make it easier for you to find the photos and videos you need to get your job done or fire up your next creative project.

No matter what visual project you’re working on, from blog articles to social media posts or the perfect cover photo for your quarantine mood Spotify playlist, we’re sure to have the photo or video to fit.

Right now, with budgets tight for most, free high quality content is more important than ever. And our new search filters help you find whatever it is you’re searching for with ease.

Users can now filter their search results by color, orientation, and size. That means the next time you need a vertical video for your Instagram stories, you’ll be able to zero in on only vertical videos and find what you need in half the time. Pexels search has never delivered better results.

Similarly, if you’re looking to outfit your home with some photos suited for large format printing, you can now filter by size (aka resolution) as well as color (so you can be sure to match your interior design).

Search Pexels by color

We’re sure the new color search filter is going to save tons of time and headaches for all the designers out there.

Color coordination is essential to any visual project, and the ability to filter your search results by color makes it simple. Easily stick within your brand guidelines or complement the tones of existing assets with the color search filter.

Pro tip: you can also search by hex code to refine your results to the exact shade you’re looking for.

Search Pexels by orientation

This has been our number one user ask for some time: you can now search Pexels photos and videos by orientation!

Choose to filter your search for vertical content if you’re looking for the perfect Instagram story background or a vertical video for your mobile app design. Narrow it down to horizontal results to uncover your next website header image or eye-catching photo for your Facebook group cover.

You can also filter your Pexels search to find only square photos and videos — perfect for Instagram, of course, and any other project where it’s cool to be square.

Search Pexels by size

Source images for all your printed needs about a hundred times faster than before with the size search filter (okay, that’s just our estimate, but rest assured it’s going to feel super speedy).

Whether you’re in need of photos for a magazine spread, company newsletter, birthday card for a friend, or beautiful poster for your wall, image resolution is crucial to ensuring your final printed result looks awesome. Now you can easily find those Pexels images that will guarantee a crisp, clean print.

Searching by resolution will also be a major time-saver for editors, bloggers, designers, marketers, and other digital professionals seeking a specific image size for a web project. And of course you can filter your video search results to show video clips at the exact quality your motion project requires.
