FAQ

What is unsplash?

Unsplash is a website dedicated to sharing copyright-free photography under the Unsplash license. Crediting the photo author is not required, but appreciated!

Why is the photo is scaled down?

The original photos on unsplash are very high resolution as they’re captured by professional photographers whereas the most common digital signage setup is in fullHD resolution, therefore we optimize images for that. If you’re using 4K setup and absolutely must have 4K resolution images, you can download the photos from unsplash in original resolution and upload to the library.

What does the unsplash rate exceeded mean?

Unsplash being a popular service, 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 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.
