Shutterstock Images

The Shutterstock plugins enable federated searches of Shutterstock images directly from the Brightspot search panel. External content retrieved from a third-party repository can optionally be imported into Brightspot and used as any other asset. See Federated search and import for more information.

There are two Shutterstock plugins:

  • Feature—This plugin provides federated searches of Shutterstock resources. These resources are retrieved as read-only and are not imported into Brightspot.
  • Content—Imports Shutterstock resources into Brightspot so you can add or change metadata.

The Shutterstock plugins require the following:

  • Shutterstock enterprise account, allowing any editor to retrieve Shutterstock images.
  • Consumer Key and Consumer Secret to configure the Shutterstock feature plugin. To find these values, go to your Shutterstock My Apps page, then click the listed application.
  • Configuring your Shutterstock account for OAuth with a hostname and a callbak URL, such as https://<domain>/shutterstockAuthorization.
