i think can improve, the option online images like microsoft, i see the program have now openclipart gallery, but i think some people need photograpy, the program "Affinity Designer/Photo" are softwares like photoshop and illustrator and have the option online images and can search images from pixabay, pexels, etc. Because this images are free and when insert, insert too link autor.
Other software use this website for insert, are canva.

UX team?

I would appreciate such a feature as extension / 3rd party tool. 

Other opinions?

fun - but far far from trivial

We discussed this topic in the design meeting. While the use case is clear and reasonable, in particular for Impress, it has some snares. First of all, linking to external sources is often doomed from the beginning since we always have to follow changes to the API. And choosing what platform to advertise is a matter of marketing. It's not FLOSS to offer only one option. That might be solved with a lot of configuration switches but with cost on usability.

Putting all together such a feature is better suited for an extension.
