Does integrating with the Unsplash API require attribution?
The Unsplash API gives free access to the entire Unsplash library of photos via an integration. Because this is an enhanced level of access built for the purpose of mass compiling photos, we ask for attribution as a way of saying, ‘thank you’ to Unsplash photographers.
Attribution is only required from the API integrators, not the user of the API. If you download an image on Unsplash or via an Unsplash integration through a third party, it does not require attribution. If you’re an app developer, it requires attribution.
