Shutterstock launches self-serve API subscriptions


New York listed global technology company Shutterstock has launched its new self-serve API subscription plans, targeting the solutions at first-time developers, start-ups, and small and mid-sized businesses.

According to Shutterstock (NYSE: SSTK), for the first time developers, start-ups, and small and mid-sized businesses can build products and features that seamlessly integrate image collection and enable in-app image reselling, providing an additional revenue stream for customers when their end-users license and download images.

“With more than 10,000 developers already building applications using Shutterstock’s high-quality content and innovative search technology, there is a clear demand for increased access and support to further serve our growing community of developers, startups and small and mid-sized businesses,” said Alex Reynolds, Shutterstock’s general manager of Platform Solutions.

“The self-serve API subscription plans empower anyone to easily integrate Shutterstock content and tools into their products and applications at any time and from anywhere.”

Shutterstock’s self-serve API features include:

  • The ability to preview, license, and resell images, providing a new revenue stream to developers and businesses;
  • One million royalty-free images, growing to more than 15 million images;
  • Advanced search capabilities including granular search filters, robust metadata, conditional queries, and support for 21 languages; and
  • Free access to test Shutterstock’s API image search and image preview.

Shutterstock says the self-serve API is the latest offering in its ongoing commitment to deliver a global creative platform that empowers customers with “compelling content, and innovative tools and services” – with the existing Shutterstock API powering native integrations with leading companies such as Google, Facebook, IBM, Wix and more.
