A plugin have been added to make easy use of the royalty free images from the site “unsplash.com”.
The plugin is called Instant Images and is located in the dashboard under “Instant Images”.
The library is not as big as the commercial sites, but it is an easy and affordable way to find a suitable image for your post. All in all I think the images are pretty good. Just hit that searchbar and select the images you want to add to our Media library by clicking them:
Yes it is really free! From unsplash own homepage:
All photos published on Unsplash can be used for free. You can use them for commercial and noncommercial purposes. You do not need to ask permission from or provide credit to the photographer or Unsplash, although it is appreciated when possible.
More precisely, Unsplash grants you an irrevocable, nonexclusive, worldwide copyright license to download, copy, modify, distribute, perform, and use photos from Unsplash for free, including for commercial purposes, without permission from or attributing the photographer or Unsplash.

Add images as easy as ctrl+v
On a sidenote a plugin have been added that makes it now possible to paste your images from your own clipboard into the media library.
