    Pros: 

    What are you waiting for? One of the biggest and best selections of free stock photos to use--sign up today and make your projects better!

    Cons: 

    The search engine needs to be updated to include specific keywords--too easy to be distracted by the wow factor while browsing for pics!

    I've actually used Unsplash a little longer than a year, but a "1 Year" button is all that's available to select on Product Hunt. Unsplash gets more new stock photos to use all the time, which is a great thing. Other than the search engine needing keyword updates, this is great for all bloggers, writers, designers, and so on.

    Robin Fry has used this product for one year.

    Pros: 

    Free, Great selection, High resolution, Easy navigation, Simple, Reminder to give photographers credit

    Cons: 

    Some common keywords are lacking (TOTALLY understandable), Sometimes images are hidden in "collections", some clutter w new features

    Unsplash is an amazing resource. When I started designing/developing purchasing expensive stock photos was one of the only ways of consistently getting images to use in design/web projects.

    With Unsplash and Pexels, etc. though now I have access to an almost unlimited library of images. I've used Unsplash for projects all the way from mobile apps, websites, to billboard advertisements. Best part is I can just sent my clients the link and they can browse through the images themselves and send me the ones they like.

    Overall an AWESOME resource. There are some minor annoyances like the addition of features that I feel just add clutter and don't add to the core value proposition (but that may just be me, and I won't name them so you can form your own opinion). My FAVORITE feature though is where they suggest giving the photographer credit - SO important and underrated.

    When you have people providing as awesome resource as this it's only fair to thank them. Unsplash is a fantastic site and I highly recommend it to everyone... My one gripe is that I don't think they need to keep adding features.

@leonelmore @mikaelcho what's wrong with Tumblr? Other that it's owned by tumbling Yahoo.

Congrats on the update, Unsplash team! Seriously great work. As a relatively new member (though a long time user!) I've quickly found both the platform and the community to be far beyond anything I've experienced elsewhere. The addition of notifications is particularly great, and will no doubt bring the community even closer together. 👏👏👏 Keep up the kick-ass work! 👍

Big thanks, guys, for everything you do: I suppose lots of users will agree that now the platform presents the reliable source of not only great and stylish photo-content, but also aesthetic inspiration. Unsplash is my love from the first sight and I never spend a day without checking the updates to get amazed. Thanks for you hard work and great style, keep rocking!
