Welcome to the Unsplash API

API Status

Getting Started

This document describes the resources that make up the official Unsplash JSON API. If you’re looking for an even simpler integration, check out Unsplash Source.

If you have any problems or requests, please contact our API team.

Creating a developer account

To access the Unsplash API, first register as a developer.

Registering your application

Once your account has been registered for the API, log in and go to the Developers page. Go to “Your Applications”, click “New Application”, and fill in the required details.

Initially, your application will be in development mode and will be rate-limited to 50 requests per hour. When ready for production, click the “Request Approval” button; if approved, your rate limit will be increased to the full amount.

Preference will be given to applications that follow the API terms of use and credit the photographer properly.

Sandbox mode

While your app is in development, from your application page you can create a list of test users that exist only in their own sandbox. Their actions will be invisible to others, but they will still be accessable via the API.

Libraries

To make it as easy as possible to integrate the Unsplash API, official libraries exist in:

Hotlinking

Unlike most APIs, we prefer for the image URLs returned by the API to be directly used or embedded in your applications (generally referred to as hotlinking). By using our CDN and embedding the photo URLs in your application, we can better track photo views and pass those stats on to the photographer, providing them with context for how popular their photo is and how it’s being used.

Schema

Location

The API is available at https://api.unsplash.com/. Responses are sent as JSON.

Version

All requests receive the v1 version of the API. We encourage you to specifically request this via the Accept-Version header:

Accept-Version: v1

Summary objects

When retrieving a list of objects, an abbreviated or summary version of that object is returned - i.e., a subset of its attributes. To get a full detailed version of that object, fetch it individually.

HTTP Verbs

The Unsplash API uses HTTP verbs appropriate to each action.

Verb Description
GET Retrieving resources.
POST Creating resources.
PUT Updating resources.
DELETE Deleting resources.

Error messages

If an error occurs, whether on the server or client side, the error message(s) will be returned in an errors array. For example:

422 Unprocessable Entity
{
  "errors": ["Username is missing", "Password cannot be blank"]
}

Authorization

Public Actions

Many actions can be performed without requiring authentication from a specific user. For example, downloading a photo does not require a user to log in.

To authenticate requests in this way, pass your application ID via the HTTP Authorization header:

Authorization: Client-ID YOUR_APPLICATION_ID

You can also pass this value using a client_id query parameter:

https://api.unsplash.com/photos/?client_id=YOUR_APPLICATION_ID

If only your application ID is sent, attempting to perform non-public actions that require user authorization will result in a 401 Unauthorized response.

User Authentication

The Unsplash API uses OAuth2 to authenticate and authorize Unsplash users. Unsplash’s OAuth2 paths live at https://unsplash.com/oauth/.

Authorization workflow

This process is described below in detail. However, many libraries exist to simplify the process. If you are using one of the Unsplash API client libraries (available in Ruby and PHP), see their documentation for how to handle user authentication.

  1. Direct the user to https://unsplash.com/oauth/authorize with the following query parameters:

    param Description
    client_id Your application ID.
    redirect_uri A URI you control that handles successful user authorization.
    response_type The access response type you are requesting. The authorization workflow Unsplash supports requires the value “code” here.
    scope A +-separated list of requested scopes. e.g. public+read_user

    If necessary the user will be asked to log in. They will be presented with the list of permission scopes being requested and asked to authorize.

  2. If the user accepts the request, the user will be redirected to the redirect_uri, with the authorization code in the code query parameter.

  3. Make a POST request to https://unsplash.com/oauth/token with the following parameters:

    param Description
    client_id Your application ID.
    client_secret Your application secret.
    redirect_uri Your application’s redirect URI.
    code The authorization code supplied to the callback by Unsplash.
    grant_type Value “authorization_code”.

    If successful, the response body will be a JSON representation of your user’s access token:

     {
       "access_token": "091343ce13c8ae780065ecb3b13dc903475dd22cb78a05503c2e0c69c5e98044",
       "token_type": "bearer",
       "scope": "public read_photos write_photos",
       "created_at": 1436544465
     }
    

    Access tokens do not expire.

  4. On future requests, send OAuth Bearer access token via the HTTP Authorization header:

    Authorization: Bearer ACCESS_TOKEN

Permission scopes

To write data on behalf of a user or to access their private data, you must request additional permission scopes from them. The scopes are:

Scope Description
public Default. Read public data.
read_user Access user’s private data.
write_user Update the user’s profile.
read_photos Read private data from the user’s photos.
write_photos Update photos on the user’s behalf.
write_likes Like or unlike a photo on the user’s behalf.
write_followers Follow or unfollow a user on the user’s behalf.
read_collections View a user’s private collections.
write_collections Create and update a user’s collections.

When authorizing your application, the user will be presented with a list of permission scopes being requested.

Pagination

Requests that return multiple items (a list of all photos, for example) will be paginated into pages of 10 items by default, up to a maximum of 30. The optional page and per_page query parameters can be supplied to define which page and the number of items per page to be returned, respectively.

If page is not supplied, the first page will be returned.

Pagination headers

Additional pagination information is returned in the response Link header. URL’s for the first, last, next, and previous pages are supplied if applicable, comma-separated, and differentiated with a rel attribute.

For example, after requesting page 3 of the photo list:

Link: <https://api.unsplash.com/photos?page=1>; rel="first",
<https://api.unsplash.com/photos?page=2>; rel="prev",
<https://api.unsplash.com/photos?page=346>; rel="last",
<https://api.unsplash.com/photos?page=4>; rel="next"

Rate Limiting

For applications in development mode, the Unsplash API currently places a limit of 50 requests per hour. After approval for production, this limit is increased to 500 requests per hour. On each request, your current rate limit status is returned in the response headers:

X-Ratelimit-Limit: 1000
X-Ratelimit-Remaining: 999

Note that only the json requests (i.e., those to api.unsplash.com) are counted. Image file requests (images.unsplash.com) do not count against your rate limit.

If you think you’ll need a higher rate limit, contact us.

Current User

Get the user’s profile

GET /me

Note: To access a user’s private data, the user is required to authorize the read_user scope. Without it, this request will return a 403 Forbidden response.

Note: Without a Bearer token (i.e. using a Client-ID token) this request will return a 401 Unauthorized response.

Parameters

None
