NEW YORK, Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Shutterstock, Inc. (NYSE: SSTK), a global marketplace for digital imagery, today announced a universal iOS application designed for mobile devices including iPhone and iPad. Shutterstock's iOS application provides users access to more than 20 million high quality, licensable images in the palm of their hands, and is available for free download in the App Store.
Deriving from the Webby Award-Winning Shutterstock for iPad app, Shutterstock's iOS application provides users another innovative way to browse, search and get inspired by the Company's vast collection of beautiful, high-quality imagery. The app also presents a host of exciting new features, including three ways to filter images by color. Users can filter results with an RGB color picker, by selecting an image from their photo library, or by snapping a photo using iPhone's camera.
"Inspiration happens everywhere, especially away from your desk," said Vice President of Product, Wyatt Jenkins. "Shutterstock's image search is an integral part of the design process and we are excited to bring it to the iPhone to capture those great moments - wherever they are. Now when customers get an idea at a museum or in line at the supermarket, they can pull out their iPhone, snap a photo and search Shutterstock's collection for images by color. It's inspiration at your fingertips."
In addition, Shutterstock's iOS app introduces several other features, including filtering by orientation (portrait or landscape), and by license type (commercial vs. editorial). Users can also browse curated lightboxes, and create and save to their own – all of which sync with Shutterstock.com, Shutterstock Instant and other devices using the iOS application.
