To make your meetings, brainstorms, and collaboration even more effective, Stormboard has partnered with and added image search to Stormboard!

This means that you can pull free images to use in reports, as inspiration for projects, and to use in meetings and presentations from within your Storm — no need to do a search in a separate window. All images are Creative Commons (CCO) and free for you to use for both personal and commercial use.

There are two ways that you can use images from Pexels in your Storm.
