Are you looking for free stock photos for your Instagram feed? Photos you can use when you don’t know what to post? Or when you need to fill a gap in your Preview feed?

That’s what the “Explore” feature is for.

Preview App now integrates the fantastic community of photographers from Unsplash.

How does it work?

You can search photos by categories.

There are 6 main categories: buildings, food & drinks, nature, objects, people and technology.

This is a broad way to search for photos.
