How to Get ShutterStock Images for Free?

There is a way of getting ShutterStock images for free. Facebook offers free images to their ad creators. It does not matter if you have an old or new Facebook page. Here is how to get free images from ShutterStock using your Facebook.

The first step is to open your Facebook Page and then click on ‘Create Adverts’ from the setting list. You will then need to click on ‘send people to your website’, and then enter the URL ‘shutterstock.com’. You will then need to create a Facebook Ad Account. Once you have an Ad Account, you will be able to set your Target Audience and Budget. This can be set to zero, so you will not be asked to pay anything.

Then click on ‘Ad Creator’, which will bring you to a page where you can create an Ad. To access ShutterStock, you will need to select Your Ads, then Images, and lastly Free Stock Images. This will bring up ShutterStock, and you can search all categories. Once you have found one that you would like to use, you can select it. The selected image will be placed in Your Image Section. The image section will allow you to choose what image that you would like to use for the ad. Once the image is in the Ad, you can right click on the image and choose to view background image. This may open a new tab in your internet browser. Then you just need to right-click again on the image and save the image. You will have the option to save the image in different locations on your computer.

This can be done as many times as you want, so you have an endless amount of free ShutterStock images. You should make sure that your Ad budget is set to zero, before creating any ads because you will be charged for the ads if it is not.

Other Ways You can try to get ShutterStock Images for Free

There are other methods that people can use to get ShutterStock images for free. Watermark removing tools that can remove the ShutterStock watermarks are just one of these ways. However, many of these tools are illegal, and you could be sued if you use images without the image licenses.

There are other free stock photo websites, but most of them do not have them huge libraries like ShutterStock has. The licenses that are offered for the other free stock photos may not be for commercial use.

ShutterStock images are not usually free, but you can receive images for free. All you need is Facebook and a ShutterStock account.

What are Royalty-Free Images?

When you pay for an image, you can use the image in an ad campaign, web banner, or on your blog or website without having to pay for each use. There is no time limit for it. The same licence applies to the free image that you get from Shutterstock. You can use the image anywhere you want to without the need to pay for it.

The best thing about getting images from Shutterstock is that it doesn’t have rights managed images. This type of licence controls where you can use the image, what type of media, and industries, just to name a few. This type of licence also has a time limit.
