Quickly access Unsplash's vast library of images through Alice with a simple Make integration

Accessing high-quality images for your projects, presentations, or personal use has never been easier, thanks to the integration of Unsplash with Alice. In just a few steps, you can set up Alice to fetch photos from Unsplash based on your queries. This guide will walk you through the process, from creating an Unsplash snippet in Alice to configuring a straightforward automation in Make.

How This Remote Action Works

The Unsplash snippet in Alice allows you to send image queries directly from the app and receive corresponding high-resolution photos from Unsplash. This integration utilizes a simple automation scenario in Make, which processes your query and returns the desired image, all within a matter of seconds.

What You Can Accomplish

  • Instantly retrieve high-quality images from Unsplash based on specific queries.
  • Enhance your projects with visually appealing content without leaving Alice.
  • Streamline the process of finding and using photos for any purpose, from professional to personal.

How to Set It Up

  1. Create an Unsplash Snippet in Alice:
    • Within Alice, create a new snippet and name it appropriately (e.g., "Unsplash").
    • Configure the snippet to send your query (e.g., "forest") to a designated webhook address.
  2. Set Up a Simple Automation in Make:
    • Create a new automation scenario that consists of just a few modules: receiving the query from Alice, searching for the photo on Unsplash, and returning the photo.
    • Ensure the scenario is activated and ready to process queries from Alice.
  3. Connect Unsplash to Make:
    • In Make, when adding the Unsplash connection, enter your Unsplash client ID and client secret.
    • Follow the instructions in Make's help documents to set up the return URL in the Unsplash developer portal correctly.
    • Authorize the connection in Make using the keys obtained from Unsplash.

Extending This Remote Action

This setup can be expanded or modified to work with other image services like Pexels or to incorporate additional functionalities, such as downloading the images directly through Alice. Explore the possibilities to tailor this integration to your specific needs and workflow.

Integrating Unsplash with Alice through Make opens up a world of high-quality images for your immediate use. This simple yet powerful integration is designed for users of all technical backgrounds, enabling quick and easy access to visual content. Whether you're working on a design project, preparing a presentation, or simply looking for inspiration, this guide ensures that stunning images from Unsplash are just a query away in Alice.
