How can I sort my image search results?

You can choose how you want to sort your search results. We have three options for you:

  • New - the newest images that match your search terms

  • Popular - the most popular results that match your search terms

  • Best Match - the most relevant search, based on our algorithm

The default search order on the website when you are not logged in is Popular. If you notice different search results for the same search terms, this may be because your search order settings changed after you logged in. You can select Popular to see the same results you saw when you were not logged in. Keep in mind that Shutterstock adds thousands of images every day. So you will always get fresh results when you choose Most Recent.
