Unsplash in Digital Signage
With Unsplash in Digital Signage, you can search and embed photos from unsplash.com into your digital signage content.
All the photos you find and use in your digital signage content from Unsplash are royalty-free, so you don’t have to worry about who owns the rights. If you are using photos from Google or generally from the internet you may find materials that are protected and therefor not for free use.
- Rotate – Change image rotation on the canvas
- Opacity – Change image transparency
- On click jump to – Assign a slide that is played when the user clicks or taps on the image, works as the button plugin.
Why is the photo is scaled down?
The original photos are very high resolution as they are captured by professional photographers whereas the most common digital signage setup is in full HD resolution, therefore we optimize images for that. If you’re using a 4K setup and absolutely must have 4K resolution images, you can download the photos in original resolution and upload them to the library.
They have to manage the demand, therefore 3rd party applications (like us) are throttled to 5000 search queries in an hour. If the limit is exceeded, the search will not work again until the next full hour starts. This does not affect images already added to the slide or published to players, only searching for new photos is affected.
Do I have to have an account at Unsplash?
When using Unsplash in digital signage you do not need to have an account at Unsplash. We have done all the hard work for you, so that content from Unsplash, Pixabay and Giphy is readily available for you when you need it.
