NEW YORK, Sept. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Shutterstock, Inc. (NYSE:SSTK), a leading global provider of commercial imagery and music, today announced that its collection has reached 100 million images since it was founded in 2003. The exceptionally diverse library of licensable illustrations, photos and vectors are provided by Shutterstock's community of 140,000 photographers and artists from more than 100 countries around the world.
Earlier this year, the company introduced its computer vision technology, which powers smart search tools to help Shutterstock's 1.5 million customers find the exact image they need faster.
"Our customers demand fresh, relevant and current imagery everyday, and are licensing 5 images every second," said Jon Oringer, Shutterstock Founder and CEO. "From the original 30,000 photos at the launch of Shutterstock to now having 100 million images is a testament to our valuable community of contributors who add more than 100,000 images every day. As we celebrate this momentous occasion, we look to the future and the trends that are changing the way we see the world."
To commemorate this milestone, Shutterstock produced a new infographic illustrating "The Top Ten Trends Shaping the Future of Imagery."
