Creative content provider Shutterstock has recently announced the launch of its new self-serve API subscription plans. For the first time, developers, start-ups, and small and mid-sized businesses can build products and features that seamlessly integrate Shutterstock’s 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.”
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
Free access to test Shutterstock’s API image search and image preview
The self-serve API is being touted as part of Shutterstock’s ongoing commitment to “deliver a global creative platform that empowers customers with compelling content, and innovative tools and services.” The existing Shutterstock API powers native integrations with leading companies such as Google, Facebook, IBM, Wix and more.
