I wish that image block & feature image has the

  • option of directly import images from creative commons licence from directories such as pixabay, mediawiki, flicker etc.
  • currently, I am using "ImageInject" by Thomas Hoefter & "Pixabay Free Images – 1.4+ Million CCO public domain Images" By Mahesh M. Waghmare WordPress plugin for the same.

Hi @kpdaa. Thanks for the suggestion.

This would involve Core making network requests to a third party service. This opens up WordPress users to unwanted tracking and other privacy implications. We've historically taken a hard line on this, e.g. see #38418.

This type of functionality is best left for plugins to implement. I note that Jetpack has already implemented a block that searches Pexels Free Photo Library.
