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! 👍
Hey everyone! Unsplash 5.0 is our first major update since we spun Unsplash out into its own company (https://medium.com/unsplash-unfiltered/hello-unsplash-inc-ce02b1c79d23#.36z4vkwpq) a few weeks ago.
Unsplash 5.0 includes 5 major things:
Following - follow your favorite people on Unsplash
Notifications - get insights into activities like: who's following you, download milestones, etc.
Unsplash Stories - ability to add a short story behind each photo you capture
Unsplash S (for Speed ;) - Unsplash is way way faster now
Unsplash Local (https://unsplash.com/local) - connecting the Unsplash community offline
Official Unsplash 5.0 announcement is here: https://medium.com/unsplash-unfiltered/unsplash-5-0-a813360ed5bc#.btkgnmyhf
Feel free to take us for a whirl today. I'd love to hear what you think. :)
@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!
@mikaelcho It's great to see Canadian company leading the way! Speed improvement is impressive. The amount of features to connect and grow the community are needed. What is the photo count number at now?
Information that also may help your users is more education about commercial use of a free photo. Using free photos for commercial uses can be tricky. Commercial use information is the focus of my reviews of free photo websites. I've reviewed your site at https://www.userroadmap.com/product/unsplash-free-hi-res-photos-review/
@mikaelcho Wow.. how great Mikael! I'll definitely put this in my top 5 image bank service.
@mikaelcho I didn't notice there were releases. The content is so good I usually just jump right in.
@mikaelcho I think Unsplash is one the of the most recommended paltform in the world and it's great to see you guys going in the right direction. If it's possible, you should add a feature to upload 360 degree photos, with all the VR and AR stuff growing, the need for 360 degree photos will increase like crazy.
@mikaelcho great addition for moth platform Medium and Unsplash.
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 has been one of my favorite sites for a long time, and this update looks great. Thanks for building this, you guys rock!
Loved this product. Why are you guys so awesome?
Unsplash is on my TOP 3 online tools. Absolutely essential nowadays.
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 👍
@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! 😅 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
