The appeal of making your photos available for free, for me personally, is the increasing numbers in the statistics section where you can see the current state of views and downloads. After all, it’s just a nice feeling that thousands, if not millions, of people out there are using my photo for something, even if it’s just a PowerPoint presentation.

While the competitors Pexels show the views and Pixabay the downloads publicly on a profile, Unsplash makes a bigger secret out of it. Unsplash is therefore not suitable for bragging about high numbers. However, there is a simple trick that can be used to find out how many views and downloads an Unsplash account has in total – and even more.

There may be many reasons to want to know what another Unsplash user’s numbers are, and pure curiosity is also completely justified. For example, one may be impressed by the fact that Unsplash veteran Annie Spratt’s photos have been viewed more than 10 billion times and downloaded more than 50 million times. To get these latest numbers, you need to install a Chrome plugin.

After installing the Unsplash Stat Viewer, you only have to “log in” with a username – but of course you will not be asked for a password. Already you get all the numbers clearly presented. What’s more, the numbers are even broken down by the last 30 days and the last seven days and you see the number of followers – that’s more than the official Unsplash stats provide.

I hope this little tip helped you out! If so, let me know in the comments.
