Shutterstock Launches New "On Demand" Subscription to Serve Full Spectrum of Stock Image Buyers

World's largest subscription-based online stock photo agency debuts four new plans for customers who need limited quantities of images

New York, NY — Aug 5, 2008 —Shutterstock ( the world's largest subscription-based online stock photo agency, unveiled four new "On Demand" subscription plans today. These innovative lower-commitment plans allow subscribers to download stock photos, illustrations and vectors anytime over a one-year period without any daily or monthly download limits.

Shutterstock's new On Demand plans are ideal solutions for stock image users who need quality images in limited quantities. Customers can download images anytime over a one-year period by paying a one-time fee of $49 or $229, depending on the quantity and resolution of the images desired. Within the plans, prices range from $4 per download for smaller sizes to $10 per download for the largest sizes and for vector images.

"We're always looking for ways to better serve the needs of our customers," said Shutterstock CEO and Founder Jon Oringer. "On Demand provides a flexible option for businesses and individuals who do not always need the volume of images provided by our original subscription plan. In the constantly changing online stock photography marketplace, the addition of On Demand allows us to cater to the full spectrum of stock photo users."

In conjunction with the launch of On Demand, Shutterstock's customers are now able to buy and use any of Shutterstock's plans simultaneously in a single account. All of Shutterstock's plans use straightforward pricing structures that do not rely on complicated credit systems.

"Shutterstock has always been focused on flexibility and simplicity, making On Demand a natural addition to our product line," said Adam Riggs, Shutterstock's President. "Whether you use On Demand alone or a combination of our 25-A-Day, On Demand, and Enhanced License subscription plans, we are confident our premium library and affordable pricing will meet all of your image needs."
