Finding the right image to add to your content can be a hassle, and is full of potential usage and legal complexities.
At the same time, we know as marketers that visuals help enhance our content being remembered and shared. Today, we're happy to introduce an integration with Shutterstock the worlds leading stock photography site to provide 60,000 images free for all HubSpot Marketing customers.
How it Works
From your HubSpot Marketing account, go to Content > File Manager. Within the new File Manager, which has been visually refreshed to match the new design of many HubSpot apps, you will see a new tab available labeled 'Stock Photos' like the image below.
From this screen you can search for an image to fit your content. For example, in a search of 'Big Data' here are the first few results.
Note: watermarks appear on images in search, but are removed when an image is saved to your File Manager. They will not appear on any images you save and use in live content.
Next, just select the image you want and save it to File Manager. After you're done, you can head to your content, or social message and insert the image.
How can I use these images?
Shutterstock images within HubSpot are provided royalty and cost-free, but as a result must be used within content created in HubSpot. For example, if you are writing a blog post within HubSpot and need an image to go along with your post, then you can utilize the new Shutterstock integration to easily add a relevant image.
Images provided by this integration may not be downloaded, or used in marketing outside of HubSpot-created content. In addition, for individuals or companies building templates for the HubSpot Marketplace these images may not be incorporated into the template, or promotion of your template.
