Today, Shutterstock licenses 5.5 images every second through, as well as API integrations with companies like Facebook, Google, and Microsoft. Shutterstock assets and tools not only empower businesses, marketing agencies, media organizations, and production companies around the world through e-commerce and enterprise offerings, they also seamlessly embed into the customer’s workflow, wherever that may be.

“Shutterstock’s continued commitment to developing innovative technology, offering an unparalleled customer experience, and providing high-quality content to customers globally has led to unique partnerships providing access to customers directly from the tools they use most often,” said Jon Oringer, founder and CEO of Shutterstock. “Reaching 1 billion licenses signifies the prominent role visual communications plays in media, advertising, and film every day. I look forward to the next decade of technology advancements embedding Shutterstock everywhere, while continuing to enhance our creative platform helping customers best create and communicate their story.”
