The 4 New Features in Shutterstock Editor

The free image editor was launched with a set of very useful features and a super user-friendly interface. You can open it from its own site, or from a button in the image detail page on Shutterstock, and it lets you edit Shutterstock's over 90 million images, right away and for free.

The tool let you crop and resize –including preset dimensions for social media and other popular uses as well as custom sizes– and to apply Instagram-like, visually appealing filters. You can do all this using the image's watermarked preview, before licensing, and the changes will be saved and applied once you license the image.

And now, the four new features added take the tool's functionality even further.
