Unsplash API Integrations

Build and run workflows using the Unsplash API. Use 1000s of source-available triggers and actions across 2,100+ apps. Or write custom code to integrate any app or API in seconds.

Overview

The Unsplash API provides programmatic access to a vast library of high-quality, royalty-free images. This enables developers to search for and retrieve photos based on keywords, collections, or featured content. With Pipedream's integration, you can automate tasks like updating social media banners, populating website content with dynamic images, or even analyzing photo metadata for insights. By leveraging Unsplash's API within Pipedream, you can create workflows that trigger on various events, process image data, and interact with countless other apps available on the platform, streamlining your digital asset management and content creation processes.

Example Use Cases

  • Social Media Content Update: Automate the updating of your social media profiles with fresh, high-resolution images by setting a Pipedream workflow that periodically queries the Unsplash API for new photos based on specific search criteria, and then posts those images to platforms like Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram using their respective APIs.

  • Dynamic Website Imagery: Enhance your website's visual appeal by creating a Pipedream workflow that pulls a curated set of images from Unsplash based on tags or collections, then pushes these images to your website's CMS (such as WordPress) to keep the visual content fresh and engaging without manual intervention.

  • Marketing Asset Management: Build a Pipedream workflow that listens for new uploads from your company’s designated photographers to Unsplash, downloads the high-quality versions of these images, and then stores them in Google Drive or Dropbox. Integrate with Slack to send notifications to your marketing team so they can easily access and use the latest images in campaigns and collateral.

Authentication

Unsplash uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Unsplash account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Unsplash and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account. Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any Unsplash API.

Pipedream requests the following authorization scopes when you connect your account:
