Shutterstock’s New Flex 25 Plan: Multimedia Downloads Including Stock Footage

Shutterstock's New Flex 25 Plan: Multimedia Downloads Including Stock Footage 2

Shutterstock launched a new offer today: the Flex 25 plan, a low volume subscription with access to multimedia downloads (instead of being media-focused like the previous offers). 

With this new subscription, you can download stock footage, stock photos, and stock music indistinctly, which saves you both money and time.

This is an ideal solution for videomakers needing stock videos and music tracks for new productions!

Flex 25 Plan: An All-In-One Stock Media Solution

The Flex 25 plan is a hybrid between a subscription and a credit pack. It gives you 25 credits per month, to download stock photos, vectors, videos, and audio tracks at your discretion. And you can get it for: 

  • Shutterstock's New Flex 25 Plan: Multimedia Downloads Including Stock Footage 3$69 a month, on a month-to-month basis
  • $49 a month, with an annual commitment

How many items you can get, depends on the media type. In the Flex scheme, assets are priced like this: 

  • Video clips: 8 credits each
  • Audio files: 4 credits each
  • Images: 1 credit each

So the max you can download would be 3 videos, or 6 music tracks, or 25 images. You can download all three media types at your discretion and pace, managing your monthly credit allowance accordingly. 

Do keep in mind that unused credits do not roll over to the next month, so you're advised to use up all your credits before the month expires, and that, at this time, the Flex plan isn’t reached by our Shutterstock coupon discount. 

By the way, all content downloaded with Flex 25 is under Standard license, suitable for commercial use, and the maximum image size and video resolution are included at no added cost.

While the Flex subscriptions aren't new (they were rolled out in April of this year, followed by Flex Premium offer in September 2021), so far they were bespoke agreements, you had to contact the agency directly to request a quote.

The Flex 25 plan is part of the standard pricing in the agency, and is accessible for all customers. All you have to do is go to Shutterstock's website and buy it.

It's a very good resource for creatives on a tight budget, as well as for those that require only a handful of videos, images, and tracks per month, as it allows you to download everything you need for a fixed monthly price that is much lower than on-demand prices, and certainly more convenient than acquiring separate subscriptions for footage, audio and images when you don't have a use for so many downloads per month.

Are you excited to try a multimedia subscription? Then give the Flex 25 Plan a go and let us know what you think!
