How do Shutterstock image subscription plans work?

At Shutterstock, we provide access to over 200 million pieces of stock content to individuals and businesses. We make it easy for you to find images, music, video clips and everything else you need with our image subscription plans. Each Shutterstock plan is subscription based to ensure that you can always quickly download the things you need, whenever you need them.
With our subscription plans, each image only counts as one download no matter what size or format it is in. These plans allow us to offer the absolute best value to our customers and ensure that your downloads don’t run out early.
Individual and Team Plans
Our individual subscription plans are offered in several packages, with discounts for those who pay annually. Month to month plans can be cancelled at any time, while there may be a cancellation fee associated with an annual plan. Customers can also choose one of our prepaid image packs to get images on demand, if they are downloaded within one year of the purchase time.
Every month you can download the quantity of images you have purchased with no limit on how many you download each day. When you run out of downloads, you’ll simply have to wait until the next month to download more.
 If you need access for more than one user, we also offer team and enterprise plans that can be purchased annually or on a month to month basis. If you don’t find a plan that works for your needs, we are happy to customize one to help you find the ideal fit.
With subscription plans, it’s important to remember that any unused downloads expire on the date of the plan’s monthly renewal, and do not rollover to the next month. Our plans are set to auto renew so you don’t have to restart each month, and those who auto renew also benefit from our Price Protection guarantee. This means that even if prices increase, you are locked in at the same price you signed up at for at least 15 months. When auto renewal is turned off, this guarantee is forfeited.
