Picture of curator in museum

Let our experts do the searching

We hear you: with over 360,000,000 images to choose from it can be time-consuming to find the perfect image. Curated Collections let you spend more time discovering some of the best Shutterstock has to offer (and less time clicking that "Next" button). Each day, Shutterstock gets more visitors than any other stock photo site. In a typical day, users will search our site over 2,000 times a minute. This gives us a unique view into what subjects are popular and trending. Each month we'll select a number of topics based on these trends and others we're observing in the advertising and design world. Then our curation team will kick into action. As experts in photography and visual design, they'll hand-select the best of the best based on a number of criteria, including impact, composition, artistry, and technical excellence.
