Marketers and businesses across the globe create and edit marketing visuals using easy-to-use, free design application.

Shutterstock, Inc. (NYSE: SSTK), a leading global technology company offering high-quality content, tools and services through its creative platform, today announced that its free design application, Shutterstock Editor, has surpassed more than 5 million users.

The tool helps users, including creatives, designers, and marketers, to speed up their design workflow with easy-to-use, powerful editing functionality and customizable templates.

Since it’s launch out of beta in 2016, Shutterstock Editor has helped millions of users create and edit a range of marketing visuals such as ads, social media assets and presentations, without needing prior design education or additional software.

Editor has become an essential design tool for busy marketers and small business owners who need professionally designed templates and the ability to build complete designs before committing to licensing an image for their project.

Key feature updates include:

– Over 150 professionally designed templates including multi-page presentation templates.
– Advanced multilingual text input support and over 150 fonts.
– Perspective tool to simulate visual placements onto existing images of phones or walls.
– Ability to collaborate with colleagues by sharing design before licensing content.
– Seamless access to Shutterstock’s full library of more than 260 million images for preview and download.
– A search engine that shows related images to easily incorporate into template design.
– Software Development Kit (SDK) enabling seamless integration of Editor into third-party workflows.

The new multi-page presentation templates are designed to help ignite creativity for engaging slideshows.

Whether it’s a business update, major company initiative or fundraising campaign, a good presentation should be informative, engaging, and most importantly, well designed.

“Creating a design from scratch or finding design inspiration can be both time-consuming and frustrating for the busy marketer and small business owner” said Sylvain Grande, SVP of Product at Shutterstock.

“In the past three years, we have expanded our workflow capabilities and added functionality to our Shutterstock Editor application to make designing easier than ever for everyone.

With this milestone, we know our users are engaged, finding value in the tool itself and are inspired by the professionally designed templates, helping them to work more efficiently and have more time to create other important projects.”
