Unsplash, the preeminent image platform for global creators, has hit 3 MILLION contributions in its library. This means 3 million images, by over 250K creatives, downloaded over 3 billion times, and used to inspire further creations all around the world.
Started in 2013 as a Tumblr blog, Unsplash now offers over 3 million free high-resolution images, providing an easily searchable online platform for a community of millions of users.
To celebrate this major milestone, Unsplash reached out to 10 all-star contributors from all over the globe to share one piece of advice for new photographers and show their journey from their first upload to their favourite image.
Early this year, the company announced it entered into a definitive agreement under which Getty Images will acquire Unsplash. Getty Images will fund the transaction from existing cash balances and the transaction is expected to close at the close of the month.
The company works with some of the world’s leading brands to curate, amplify and syndicate their content to the platform’s broad audiences. As of 2021, Unsplash has over two billion image downloads across the globe, allowing brands in Unsplash’s unrivalled ecosystem to syndicate targeted images that are seen 22 billion times, and by 300 million people, each month.
