Hi everyone,

There are two photos from Shutterstock that I want. Unfortunately the most basic account is $50 for 5 photos. I don't have that kind of money and can't afford the images.

If there's anyone who has a Shutterstock account subscription and would be willing to help me out by getting only these two photos in psd files if possible for me, that would be great! Thank you so much and Thanks in advance.

image ids are these two: 379923199 - 472471327

Sorry if this is in the wrong section.im new here and could not find a request section

So...nobody's probably going to do this for you, because we sell our images there, and only a few of us buy them, and we might be annoyed by buyers wanting to pay subscription prices without getting a subscription.

However, if you click on Sentavio's profile on the images in question, you'll find the url to their website. And MicroOne's email. And you can buy the two images on Shutterstock for $29.

This is the mindset many buyers have now. They are conditioned to spend next to nothing if they can get away with it. And they want a PSD file to boot.  Going to have some coffee now and relax.

If you had bothered to look around a bit, you'd have seen that these files are offered at other agencies, not just Shutterstock. Both are at 123rf.com, for example, and they are 10 credits each for the vector file (which is what you want, not a PSD, so you can scale it to any size).

Perhaps you're not really aware of how the market works, but you could do some basic legwork to find out what your options are for prices - and as noted it's $29 for two files at Shutterstock, not $50. If you can't afford $20 or $29, then perhaps you should explore other options.

Canstock is a good place to get images pretty cheap.  I have never yet met anyone who can't afford their prices, including students, church bulletins, and little old ladies who make collages.

Come to think of it do the licencing terms allow this? I think the answer is NO http://www.shutterstock.com/license

No they don't.  You would be getting nothing as they wouldn't be licensed to you. They'd be licensed to the subscription holder.

As stated. Subscriptions aren't for people like you that just need a couple of images. There are lots of other stock sites that will license you the same images for very little cost.

What do you need the images for? If you want to use them commercially, pay the $50 and buy them. If you can't afford to invest $50, then perhaps you shouldn't be having a business.

If you need them for non-commercial reasons (say, a greeting card for your mom and dad), I understand it can be expensive. But you'll have to find another, cheaper option.

Can you really blame the current mindset of buyers? With a gaggle of photographers sending their work to subscription sites and happy to make pennies for their effort combined with a simple request like sourcing the work cheaper the buyer gets many responses from the gaggle informing them where they can get the imagery cheaper.

Sort of ironic don't you think?

I do agree that it's counterproductive to tell buyers where to get our images cheaper. Which is why I hinted at buying direct from the illustrators, or to pony up the $29 at SS. I find it very difficult to believe someone can't afford 15 bucks for an illustration they're most likely going to use as their logo (which is against SS T&Cs), and a custom logo would cost them hundreds or thousands of dollars. Come on...it's a couple of Big Macs with fries.

If you can't afford $29 for 2 images then what are you doing in business in the first place?

You'd probably spend more on lunch or buying coffee for the week.
