We’ve all heard of Shutterstock. Royalty-free images, video footage and music to add effect and style to your websites, printed goods, presentations, apps and blogs. There’s an editing tool, too. This is not a free service, but there are no watermarks or low-quality images to contend with,either. Fees cover all licencing requirements and we all know that Shutterstock offers top end design inspiration. If you really want top-end visuals and audio, visit Shutterstock.

I wish they would send you an email a day or two before they auto-renew (it’s hard nowadays to remember everything you subscribe to), but I really appreciate that they gave me a refund after it auto-renewed and I caught it on my credit card statement. No begging needed. A lot of companies rely on…

I went to Shutterstock as it appears to be a household name for images. To be fair, they do have a vast selection, and there were quite a few images I wanted, so I decided to purchase them.The downside is transparency. When I bought the images, I thought I was paying for 4/5 downloads, in…

Waiting over one month for a invoice to appear in billing, so I can claim back on company expenses. If you take out a subscription and change your mind it costs you an extra £10 to cancel. Customer service abysmal as I have emailed and live chat is hopeless. If you need a professional service…

The payment auto renewal is fraudulent – you do not get notification giving you any choice to continue or cancel. Even when you have deselected OFF it goes back to ON.

UPDATE: I used the online chat service and I have been granted a refund. Apparently, there is an effort to correct their practice of screwing customers over with auto-renewals. Once the refund goes through I will update this to a 5 star review.I signed up for a monthly plan because I needed a single image.…

Extortion threats

April 24, 2018

I’ve used Shutterstock for years, but now they’ve started emailing me with what I can only describe as extortion threats. Not even kidding.Suggesting the license I have isn’t correct, lecturing me on the nature of a contract, suggesting I’m in breach of contract – even though they have no information on my use of images…

I have a basic download subscription of 10 images per month and this meets my requirements..however, i was downloading an image and accidentally clicked ‘enhance my subscription for £70’ box. This tiny tick box is located between the image size button and the download now button. And whilst dragging my mouse between the two i…

I tried to cancel what I thought was a monthly plan only to find out I was locked into an annual plan. If I searched for reviews like you are I never would have signed up.

Does not meet expectations.I was lured onto the site with the false pretense of royalty free images. They are not. Furthermore, I am unable to delete my account.Not recomended.
