Search for Stock Photo

Search for stock photos on Pexels, and then download it for further use with credit in the clipboard


This shortcut lets you search for and download stock photos from Pexels. It presents search results, lets you choose one and preview it, and then opens the Share Sheet with the original quality photo and copies its photo credit to the clipboard.

It can be combined with other shortcuts to take action on the photo, such as uploading it to a CDN, making it a great companion for crafting blog posts.

It relies on one paid action from Toolbox Pro, but the rest is all native Shortcuts actions. Since Toolbox Pro is only available on iOS and iPadOS, it cannot be run from macOS.
