Size matters, but not when it comes to price. Now you can focus on one thing, finding the right image, giving you the power to meet the needs of a high-resolution world.
The Essentials Collection gives you the everyday content you need, while the Signature Collection brings over 6 million of our very best stock and now includes all premium Vetta™ Collection files.
Just remember: 1 credit for 1 Essentials image or vector and 3 credits for 1 Signature image or vector.
We’ve upgraded our payment options with new iStock credit packs so you can get just the photos, videos and vectors you need, making purchasing easier, simpler, and more cost effective than ever. Our new credit packs can give you more bang for your buck and are easier to understand.

If you had credits in your account, you’ll notice that we adjusted your credit balance at a 5:1 conversion rate, rounding up in your favor. Here’s how it works:
We’ll be converting your credits, ensuring their value is maintained or better.
Credits will be divided by 5, giving you your new balance.
If it’s not a whole number, we’ll always round up in your favor.
We wanted to make it easier and more affordable for you to get beautiful stock imagery on a budget and made improvements to our credit system, pricing, experience and subscriptions to do exactly that.
If you had a credit balance prior to September 13, 2014, you’ll see that we adjusted your balance using a 5:1 conversion rate to reflect our new pricing model. We rounded up in your favor if the conversion didn’t result in a whole number – for example, if you had 100 credits, now you’ll have 20. If you had 101, you’ll now have 21. View your updated credit balance.
We take our responsibility to be fair to our customers very seriously and considered a wide range of factors in our decision to use the 5:1 ratio, including your initial cost of credits in comparison to the cost of credits under the new pricing model. We arrived at the 5:1 ratio and our policy to round up in your favor because it fairly gave all customers the same or better underlying value for their existing credits.
Credits will be converted using the same 5:1 ratio, and will also be rounded up if it’s not a whole number. Sub-account limits will not be converted.
For files downloaded with credits prior to September 13, 2014, you can re-download any file size up to and including the size you initially downloaded.
For files downloaded with credits after September 13, 2014, you can re-download any file size at any time.
With our simplified credit pricing, you can get single images with our 1 credit pack or 3 credit pack depending on the collection. We also have credit packs sized to get individual video clips from both collections.
Yup. You can add any extended license to your image for 18 credits or add one to your video clip for 21 credits.
Our premium Vetta Collection is now available at the lowest price ever as part of our Signature Collection. The improved Signature Subscription now includes Vetta photos, vectors and illustrations.
If you’ve got a Signature Subscription, you’ll now have access to every photo, vector and illustration in the iStock collection, including premium Vetta images not previously available with your subscription. If you’ve got an Essentials Subscription you’ll still have access to every image in our Essentials Collection and can get any file not included in your subscription using our new credit pricing.
