Ratings and Reviews
Subscription Pricing Scam
Do yourself a favor, use Unsplash instead, it’s completely free and the images are better, in my opinion. Shutterstock has an incredibly shady subscription model. Paid $30/month for a few months and then when I went to cancel, they told me I’d be charged a roughly $100 cancellation fee, because I had been receiving an annual discount. To trap you even further, every month that you continue to pay the subscription, your cancellation penalty increases by $20. They have some ambiguous fine print about “cancellation fees may apply,” but don’t give any detail. This is the worst subscription scam that I’ve come across and I’ve used a lot of SaaS products.
Yes...IF the tables WERE turned
Kpedney’s inability to understand is should bring sympathy. Shutterstock advertises a FREE app & royalty FREE images. You don’t find out the expense until AFTER you’ve registered and given your personal information to SS to do with as they will. That’s the usual price of anything FREE on the internet. Not necessarily from one that exacts fees. There is nothing FREE on this site/app that I could find.
There are plenty of websites that do offer FREE image downloads of varying quality. No one denies Kpedny or others the right to try to recoup the expenses they have in doing photography. The complaint lies in the false representation of “royalty FREE images” that still incur a significant cost.
I’m deleting the app, cancelling my account and, if I plan to pay for images, I will buy them from a site that doesn’t misrepresent itself.
What’s not to understand?
BTW, do you know the music and movie industries also incur costs? I’m sure you don’t expect to download their content for FREE either.
When I first got this subscription I was able to download and edit 10 images per month. I was happy to pay the over the top price of $30 a month for that privilege. This lasted three months, then all of a sudden the subscription has changed...I am only able to download select images and I am unable to edit in this app. In order to get most images I have to pay additional fees...WTH. With the changes that you have made this app is way too expensive and a complete waste.
