Not much is more frustrating than when you purchase a video from a stock site and, after 30 days of purchase, the video becomes ineligible for download unless you repurchase it or worse, it disappears from your account entirely. When you purchase a video or image from Shutterstock, it's yours to use as you see fit. If that means leaving it in your account for the next 12 months, untouched, and then downloading it one random day in June, you can do so without hassle or additional fees. Note: if the contributor removes the content from our library, it will no longer be available for download/redownload. Contact us and we can help resolve this.
When you download a Shutterstock video or image, you can redownload it at any time, indefinitely. This is true regardless of whether your subscription is active or not. Redownloads do not count toward any active plans that you do have, which means you never have to pay twice for something you essentially already own.
In addition to allowing users to redownload their images and clips at will, Shutterstock is pleased to inform you that you can use licenses content as many times as you want as well. This means that if you have a video on your website which you wish to use on your social media profiles, you can. You can also use the same images as a backdrop on your home page, email newsletter template, business cards and more. We strive to make it easy to develop a cohesive brand or personal image, which we like to believe we do by allowing for indefinitely downloads and indefinite use of products.
