Shutterstock Photo Editing

Shutterstock is an American image service company based in New York City that provides stock footage, stock photography, and stock music. It also has editing tools that users can use to retouch stock photos. Stock images and assets, most of which are contributed by over 650,000 contributors from all over the world, are accessible through the website There are more than 250 million images accessible from the website and 200,000 more are added on a daily basis. This brings the total to over 1 billion including, video clips and music tracks. Because Shutterstock assets are royalty-free, you must pay for a subscription plan so that you can commercially use images without the watermark and as many times as possible.

A stock photo is considered as such if it is licensed for a specific use, based on the definition of stock photography. These types of images are nothing new since the stock photo industry established itself in the 1920s. Stock agencies have been charging users for every image downloaded. But it was Shutterstock that pioneered the subscription strategy in selling stock photos.

Shutterstock Photo Retouching

Stock photos are licensed for a specific use but you can still edit them to some extent. If you run a search of Shutterstock photo retouching, for example, you will be directed to a page with images that you can retouch. If you hover on a specific image, you will find several tools–save, try, share, and edit. Clicking edit will take you to the Shutterstock Editor that comes with several features and tools that you can use to edit a stock photo. There’s a button to remove the watermark, remove background, and to select a preset size, among others. With over 11,000 stock photos that allow editing, you’re sure to find an image that will suit the content message that you want to convey.

If you want to edit stock images from a different source, it’s imperative that you check the license agreement since this differs from one stock photo agency to another. You should also check how much stock photo editing you can do. Some standard changes include cropping, flipping the image, and resizing. In the case of Shutterstock, you can do a lot more. You can then use the edited images for personal or commercial applications, provided that you pay the license.
