Shutterstock announced the introduction of Shutterstock footage in February 2006 and went live with it in April 2006 - way earlier than iStock footage (Sept. 2006). 11 months ago in April 2008 Shutterstock added a subscription plan to Shutterstock footage. While Fotolia is still in the process of building its microstock footage library, Shutterstock announced today that it is extending all Shutterstock Footage subscription terms from 30 days to one year at no additional cost and also introduces Low Resolution stock footage subscriptions.
