Editors’ Notes

Millions of pro-grade images available for direct download.


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.


A good assortment of pictures and vectors but a bit expensive

I have been a subscriber for several years and appreciate the depth of pictures and vectors just wish it cost less
