Unsplash Integration

Finding affordable, high-quality, commercially useable photography for your website, that doesn’t scream stock photography is really hard. Bricks is putting an end to it.

Unsplash.com, the world’s most generous community of photographers, allows you to use their photography royalty free (commercial use included). No linking back or attribution required. Unsplash operates under a so-called “do whatever you want” license.

You can search through and download any Unsplash photo right from within Bricks by clicking theĀ Browse Unsplash button below any image control. This opens a popup that lets you browse and download any photo of Unsplash’s entire library of hundreds of thousands of commercially free photos.

One Click Photo Download

Hover over any photo and click the Download button to download a photo from Unsplash directly into your WordPress media library. All resizing is done automatically in the background for you.

How To Generate Your Unsplash API Key

To receive access to Unsplash’s photo library you need to create an API key. It’s free and only takes two minutes.
