Shutterstock Now Hosts 16 Million Royalty-Free Images
When it comes to mobile access for great images, we’ve sadly had to put up with the semi-pro photo sites on the web like Flickr and the like. The big sites like Shutterstock have for some time ignored the potential of mobile but that is all set to change.
Shutterstock made the official announcement recently that its entire catalogue of royalty-free stock images are coming to the iPad, courtesy of an App developed specifically to handle the browsing of images, wireframes, vectors and other data. According to Shutterstock, the app was designed with one single aim and that is to make the ‘interface the content’. This integrated design is meant to give users a unique experience and based on the feedback so far, Shutterstock has achieved just that. One user commented that the new Shutterstock mobile interface “looks incredible”. Users seem particularly impressed with the fact that a single finger can be used to navigate between photos without the need for burdensome clicking and dragging found on desktops.
Mobile users are now able to preview hi-res images and send directly to their favorite social network (Twitter and Facebook standard of course) and email. The app is also 100% free so users can tap into Shutterstock’s catalogue of 16 million royalty-free hi-res photos without spending a dime in Apple’s App store.
