Shutterstock Celebrates 25 Million Images In Its Collection And 300 Million Licenses Sold

NEW YORK, April 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Shutterstock, Inc. (NYSE: SSTK), a leading global provider of commercial digital imagery, announced today that it has reached 25 million images in its collection, and sold over 300 million licenses since its founding in 2003. Both achievements signify Shutterstock's growing popularity among designers, marketers and publishers worldwide, and its position as a volume and selection leader in the stock media industry.

"All businesses need images," said Shutterstock's founder and CEO Jon Oringer, "and these milestones represent the power of Shutterstock's two-sided marketplace and the ability of our 40,000 talented contributors to help the world tell stories."

Shutterstock maintains a rigorous review process when considering new artists and content for the library. "Shutterstock's vetting process ensures our collection is not only one of the largest of its kind, but also of exceptional quality," said VP of Content Scott Braut. "Licensing 300 million images is a testament to the remarkable depth, breadth and quality of Shutterstock's library," Braut added.

Indicative of emerging design trends, which celebrate abstract patterns and neon colors, the 25-millionth image added to Shutterstock's collection is a vector illustration of a cat on a black background by a Russian artist named Natalia Koroleva.

The 300 millionth image downloaded was a macro close-up photograph of leaves from long-time Shuttertstock contributor Carlos Caetano from Portugal.

Shutterstock has paid out more than $150 million to its contributors around the world in the nine years since its founding. The company also began previewing Offset, a new brand featuring a high-end collection of extraordinary licensable images.
