Export from Unsplash to Google Sheets

You can use Awesome Table Connectors to export from Unsplash to Google Sheets. Exporting to Google Sheets via Awesome Table Connectors allows you to access raw data, schedule refresh to get regular updates, and configure your output sheet's layout, among other features.

This article demonstrates how to use Awesome Table Connectors to get a list of photos from Unsplash and export it into Google Sheets. You can use your own Unsplash account and follow along.

You have logged in with the Awesome Table Unsplash connector.
  1. Open the Method drop-down and select the operation you want to perform. We are using the GET method to retrieve photos uploaded to Unsplash and their respective URLs so that we can use them in our website.


    Click API documentation if you want to know more about Unsplash’s API.

  2. Enter the URL for the API you want to use. We are using to search for photos uploaded to Unsplash.

  3. (Optional) Use Query parameters and Headers. For more information on what parameters and headers you can use, see Unsplash’s API documentation.

    • Enter a key-value pair as a parameter. We are searching for photos using a particular term and indicating that we want a limit of 100 results per page.

      The parameters are key-pair values for the following: query-house and per_page-100.
  4. (Optional) In the Output options, configure how your data will be inserted into your spreadsheet.

  5. Use the Preview & Select columns feature to customize your output sheet to expand the urls column and display the photo URLs for the different sizes in separate columns.

    • You can rename any column, including the default column urls.
    • You can also click Run, but the urls column is not expanded and the URLs are not clickable.
    1. Click Preview & Select columns.

      A new window opens.

    2. On the left-hand side where the column names are shown, find and select the urls checkbox.

      All the columns under urls are now included in the export.

    3. Click Save changes.

  6. Click Run to start your request.


    If you are running a request for the first time, the Permission needed pop-up window opens.

    1. Click Sign in with Google.
    2. Select the Google account you want to use with Awesome Table.
    3. Click Allow to grant Awesome Table the required permissions.
