Tool Makes Keywording Easier and More Efficient for Shutterstock's 40,000 Contributors, and Improves Relevant Search Results for Customers

Shutterstock, Inc. (NYSE: SSTK), a leading global provider of commercial digital imagery, announced today the launch of a new tool called Keyword Suggestions. Powered by search and purchase data from Shutterstock's 750,000 customers and 300 million downloads, the new tool suggests keywords based on similar images within the collection.

Innovating on behalf of contributors is a priority for the company, and Keyword Suggestions reduces the time contributors need to spend creating keywords. VP of Content, Scott Braut remarks, "We're constantly looking at ways to improve the contributor experience and submission process. With Keyword Suggestions, artists can spend more time creating imagery and less time keywording." 

Customers will also benefit from Keyword Suggestions. "Image based keywording is a major step in improving the discoverability of our content," said VP Product Wyatt Jenkins. "It makes it easier for our users to find relevant images quickly."

The Keyword Suggestions tool is integrated into the Shutterstock Content Editor and can be used seamlessly with other programs like Adobe's Lightroom, Photoshop and Bridge, making it a natural addition to the submission workflow. 

Keyword Suggestions is now live and available to all Shutterstock Contributors. To learn more about the tool, please visit theShutterstock Contributor Blog.
