These companies offer a variety of pricing models, including subscription-based plans, pay-per-download options, and customized licensing arrangements for larger organizations. One of the key drivers in the stock images & videos market is the increasing demand for visual content across various industries, including marketing, advertising, publishing & design. As more businesses and organizations seek to differentiate themselves through high-quality, engaging visual content, the need for affordable and convenient access to stock images continues to grow.  

Recent Developments and Launches of AI Platforms & Tools 

In the stock image market, vendors increasingly introduce AI platforms and tools to enhance their offerings. These AI-powered solutions are designed to revolutionize the way customers search for and utilize stock images. By leveraging machine learning and computer vision algorithms, these platforms can analyze and understand the content of images, enabling more accurate and relevant search results. 

In early 2023, Shutterstock launched a new AI image generator – Shutterstock Generate. This tool came out because of the partnership between Dall-E & Shutterstock. It is a text-to-image generator that utilizes the Dall-E model, specifically trained using Shutterstock’s content library. This unique approach ensures legal compliance and transparency throughout the image generation process. When users download the generated images through the app, they are licensed by Shutterstock, providing a reliable and authorized source for usage.
