Shutterstock Goes Mobile with Sales

Press release from Shutterstock that now allows downloading images directly to your tablet or cell phone on apple products.  Check out the release below.

We know our contributors are always interested in getting their work seen by as many customers in as many ways as possible. With that in mind, here’s an update on what we’ve been doing to help you promote and license your images on mobile devices — and let you track your results on the go, too.

The Shutterstock App for iPhone and iPad — now with downloading!

We recently updated our award-winning app to make it available on iPhone as well as iPad. Both versions let users search and explore images, scroll through a seamless mosaic of options, add selections to Lightboxes, and share them with colleagues. The apps have been a huge hit with customers — to date, over 300,000 users have downloaded and begun using them!

This month, we released version 2.5 of the app, giving customers the ability to download images straight to their mobile devices. This new feature is available with version 2.5 for all photos and some illustrations. (Vectors are not currently included, as the Apple iOS doesn’t natively support .eps files). We’re thrilled to offer yet another way to license your images and help your earnings grow.


Track Your Sales from Anywhere with Shutterstock Contributor Mobile.

The Shutterstock iPhone and iPad apps are focused on the needs of customers, but Contributor Mobile is just for you. We spoke to a lot of contributors who check their downloads and earnings frequently — often multiple times per day — so Contributor Mobile is designed to let you quickly see your stats wherever you are. Also, because it’s an HTML5 app that works right in your mobile browser, it will function on nearly any web-ready device.

Just visit from your browser to access the app on the move. For more info on Contributor Mobile, including tips on adding the app to your home screen, click here.

Stay tuned for more exciting developments this year from the Shutterstock Mobile team. As always, we’re committed to your success, and to finding innovative and inspiring ways for people to discover and download your work.
