Unsplash and Squarespace

With our partnership with Unsplash, you can add free stock photography to your site.

Tip: You can also add premium stock images with our Getty Images integration.

How it works

  1. Search - Search Unsplash’s collections almost anywhere you can add an image in Squarespace, including:
  • Image Blocks
  • Gallery Blocks
  • Gallery Pages
  • Page Thumbnail Images
  • Cover Pages that support imagery
  • Banner and background images
  • Mobile fallback images
  1. Add - Preview images until you find one you like, then add it to your site.
  2. Reuse - Reuse any added Unsplash image in other places on your site, as many times as you need.

Getting started

You can copy, modify, download, and distribute Unsplash images for free, even for commercial purposes. For help, visit these guides:


Do I need to license Unsplash images?

No. Under Unsplash’s license, you can copy, modify, download, and distribute any of their images for free, even for commercial purposes. You don’t need to ask permission from or provide attribution to the artist, but we recommend crediting them anyway. They offer some tips for crediting on their site.

I found an image directly on Unsplash, but I can't find it through Squarespace. Can I still use it?

Unsplash offers some images on their website that aren’t available through our integration. For convenience, we recommend choosing a similar image through the integration. You can also download the image directly from Unsplash, then upload it to your site.

Terms of Service

When you add an Unsplash image to your site, you agree to their terms and understand that you’re publishing the image and are responsible for it. Unsplash provides the image, not Squarespace. As the site owner, you’re responsible for verifying that the image’s license is legitimate and that your use of the image complies with their terms. We also recommend reviewing our best practices for using stock images.
