Visuals aren’t optional in today’s business world. They are a vital component of any marketing initiative, the key to engaging presentations, and an indispensable piece of social media sharing. This is why we built Shutterstock Editor – to give businesses a fast, simple, and streamlined tool that helps them create with confidence.

We launched Editor in beta last winter so that small businesses, social media managers, content marketers, or anyone who simply needs high-quality creative could meet the growing demand for beautiful design across departments and industries. Since then we tested features and refined them. Now, we’re introducing Shutterstock Editor out of beta, and it’s more powerful than ever.

With new editing tools and improved functionality, Shutterstock Editor has everything you need to create visuals that reflect your brand and engage your audience. Whether you want to make quick edits to a photo or create a fully-customized image, Editor will save you time on professional-looking designs.
