Hi,

The Stock panel worked for me in Beta of Photo, but with release of the final version I get "connection failed". I'm working on W10.
Any ideas?

Hey Przemysław,

As far as I know, only users with Windows 7 have been experiencing the 'Connection failed' message. 

The main thread can be found here:
https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/88295-stocks-tab-unsplash-not-working/&page=2

However I believe the fix being discussed only applies to Windows 7 but it may be worth having a read anyway. 

I think we may need to do something about this as expecting users to modify the registry isn't really a solution.

Get Connection failed every time

Using the latest version of Affinity Photo on Windows 10, I can access these sites using my browser with no problem

Same here!

Yes - didn't help.

Funny thing is, they all used to work, a while back Unsplash ans Pixabay stopped working, and just today i noticed that Pexels has also stopped.

To be honest it's not a major problem, I can just go to their websites. Just a minor irritation!

Sorry to hear that. We will look out for a recipe/similarities with other reports. (No problem here). Does the Welcome screen still show adverts?

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums :) 

We think this is a recent change to Pexels affecting all customers on all OS's (If Pexels stock search is still working for any other readers of this thread feel free to correct me))

Pexels is the only one saying "connection failed"

Pexels is best avoided anyway, IMO.
