@mikaelcho it's great to see Unsplash growing from a simple Tumblr page to a social network. Congrats to all the team, great new features!
@leonelmore @mikaelcho what's wrong with Tumblr? Other that it's owned by tumbling Yahoo.
@mikaelcho Great so see Unsplash growing like this. Good work Mikeal and team!
@leonelmore Thanks so much Leonel :) Appreciate all the support
@guidsen Thanks a lot Guido!
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. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ Keep up the kick-ass work! πŸ‘

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!
@myalanska oh sucks! thanks so much Marina. really means a lot to hear this from you :) we'll keep working to make Unsplash better and better.
Unsplash is amazing! Thank you Now who will be the one to make Unsplash Video first. I have many videos I would like to contribute.
@androidlove Annie here from the Unsplash team, hello! You might like to check out coverr.co for free-to-use video πŸ‘
@androidlove We created Coverr.co, similarly as a side project as well. We get a lot of video contributions and always looking for beautiful content for our community, we'd love to see your works.
@androidlove Check out Pixabay Videos. Definitely the best source for CC0 videos and footage out there: https://pixabay.com/en/videos/
@simonsteinbgr @androidlove Not that you're biased or anything, Simon! πŸ˜… Great work on the mobile app launch btw!
@androidlove There is a free collection on wwwunstock.io (link in footer) for >100 free videos. When you upload file, you may set your videos as a contribution

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.

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
