Shutterstock Announces Extended Plugin Access For Adobe Illustrator And InDesign Users

You’re working away on a project and need an image but you’ve got to go online and end up running down the stock image rabbit hole on five different websites.

The company recently announced an updated plugin which they’ve made newly available for Adobe Illustrator and Adobe InDesign.


Shutterstock’s plugin now also offers 8 MILLION video clips in Premiere Pro. This is the first time Shutterstock has made its high-quality video collection available through a plugin, giving amateur filmmakers and veteran film editors another powerful tool at their disposal.

What This Means For You

Not only does this integration save you time and increase productivity, but it’s now as if you can enjoy an all-in-one tool.

Jon Oringer, Founder and CEO of Shutterstock said, “We’re giving people a faster process to get their work done. Our team is always looking for new ways to speed things up for customers, to enable them to spend more time being creative.”

The plugin includes:

  • Streamlined workflow – Gain access to Shutterstock’s library of images, vectors, and footage without switching applications.
  • Design previews – Make edits and share designs using preview images or clips before purchasing a license.
  • Content curation – Get inspiration from pre-curated collections of imagery or video clips, or from user-generated collections shared with a team of colleagues.
  • Simple licensing – Download assets within the applications without losing the integrity of the work.

The compatibility with new applications builds on the success of Shutterstock’s 2016 launch of a plugin compatible with Adobe Photoshop. The plugin works for Creative Cloud 2015-2017 and is available for Mac and PC users in English.

We’re excited about this for you, the solopreneurs, the small businesses, and freelancers working hard every day to succeed and produce quality content for your audience!
