Unsplash has released an official WordPress plugin that integrates their stock image service with WordPress. Features include quick intuitive search, easy insertion of images into posts, native support for the WordPress Media Library, automatic alt descriptions for improved accessibility and SEO. 📷

The plugin was built by the team at XWP. They’re also working on the next version of the official AMP plugin for WordPress, which is available now for testing.

There is some conflict on Twitter about the licensing of the photos from Unsplash (not the plugin itself) and WordPress.org’s requirements for listing there, which flared up due to comments by Matt Mullenweg. Sarah Gooding has an excellent post about the nuance involved in the discussion and around the Unsplash licensing. I personally agree entirely with Unsplash’s side of this.
