Checkout Alan Levine’s blog, outlining the benefits of using OpenVerse for image searches.

Ditch Google Image search this very minute. They’ve given up, they don’t care. What’s cooler still is if you’re on a WordPress.com hosted site like me, you already can access OpenVerse from the Upload Image button in the Block editor. It shows up as a image website you can search and insert pictures from. I did it just now with the jet picture at the top, with full annotation/attribution/citation info in the caption. I didn’t lift a finger other than to search for “SST” then pick the coolest picture it showed in the results. It’s that easy.
