UnSplash Makes a Big Splash in Photo Management

Posted on 2.25.2016

Popular photography platform Unsplash, which boasts 40,000 photographer contributors (whose photos are viewed more than 600 million times each month), has released a series of feature improvements that will be well received by its users. Let's take a closer look to see what's new.

+ Collections: Unsplash has previous offered curated sets of photos, but has now introduced Collections, a way for users to curate their own collection of Unsplash photos.

+ API: What will arguably prove to be one of its most useful new features, Unsplash has introduced an API that will let developers populate their apps and websites with content from the Unsplash database. The Unsplash API now handles photo requests for tools include Pablo by Buffer, Craft by InVision and Placemat by Imgix.

+ Search: One of the most important updates is the introduction of a new search experience. Unusplash has been working on search functionality for some time, but recently surpassed support for more than 3 million searchable tags - created by humans and not bots mind you (which should illustrate just how dedicated the Unsplash community really is).

Unsplash also "buttoned up" and introduced 'Like' functionality, so users will now be able to see all of the photos they have ever liked and see what the Unsplash photographers they like are liking too.
