Shutterstock has just announced the latest release of their fantastic tool: Shutterstock Editor. It is probably one of the most complex stock photo editors we have ever tried.

Shutterstock Editor is an easy-to-use yet packed with many features editing tool. You choose an image, background, or template, and then start customizing it. Or you can also start from scratch with a blank canvas. With its ready-made designs, image pre-set sizes, and option to share on social media, Shutterstock Editor is an amazing tool for all Creatives.

What you can do with Shutterstock Editor

When you open Shutterstock Editor you have a choice to select pre-set canvas or start your design from scratch. If you pick any of the templates, you can start customizing it straight away. You can choose from sizes of the most popular social covers, post images, social links, headers or presentation. If you prefer choosing the size yourself, just click on “Create custom size” and you will be presented with an option to pick your own one.

Shutterstock’s impressive stock media library is a great place to find a perfect image to start your project. You can search for specific images and also check related items. Choose between stock photos, vectors or illustrations. If you need to be more specific you can filter your search criteria by category, orientation or images with people and editorial license. You can also enable safe search or exclude unnecessary keywords.
