Where are the files I downloaded?

On a computer, your download will start automatically right after you license the digital asset. Depending on your browser, your file will either save directly to your browser’s download folder, or you will be prompted to choose a folder in which to save the file. This also applies to downloading from within Shutterstock Editor.

If your download did not start automatically, you can opt to manually start the process again from the download confirmation page. If you need to download the file again, you can always navigate to your License History and redownload the file again for free, choosing a new folder location.

Searching for the file
Since all Shutterstock content is labeled with a numerical ID, you can run a search with a particular ID to find where your image, video or music clip is on your computer.

Shutterstock app
Downloads are stored within the app itself. From the settings section of the app, you can also opt to save your downloads to your camera roll as well. Please note that this applies to photos only, and not to vector images.
