Shutterstock is bringing its collection of stock imagery and photography directly into Photoshop CC with a new plugin. It gives users the ability to search Shutterstock's catalog and access their accounts within the app, as well as access previously purchased images. The plugin will also allow users to make adjustments to watermarked images, and will re-apply edits to the image once purchased.
Photographers won't find a way to easily contribute images through the plugin, a feature that Adobe's own Stock app supports for its contributors. But the Shutterstock plugin will no doubt appeal to designers who rely on the service and want to smooth out their workflow. The plugin is available now for Photoshop CC 2014 and 2015 Mac and PC users.
