How can I use Collections for images?

Even without a purchase, you can use Shutterstock to search for images and Collections make it easy to keep track of the ones you like.

Saving images to a Collection
There are many ways to add images to a Collection. In general, look for the round + button, especially when hovering over an image. Click the button to pull up a menu where you can select the Collection you want to add the image to or create a new Collection.

View your Collections
You can find your Collections by clicking My Account in the upper right side of your screen.

Using Collections
You can add and delete images, copy or move them from one Collection to another, and set a custom cover photo for each Collection.

Sharing Collections
Click the "Share" button to invite other Shutterstock users to co-edit the Collection or invite someone to view it.

Download from Collections
Images can be downloaded without leaving your Collection. Just tap the Download button when hovering over an image and a download box will walk you through the process. Images that have you've licensed before will show a Redownload button.
