    What should I respect when I use shutterstock photos?

    Can someone please explain me what I pay attention to for if I want to embed photos from shutterstock on my website? Must I list any photo-ids or something else?
    Thank you in advance

    If you paid for them on Shutterstock, you can use them however you want. I would use their TOS (terms of service) as your guide.

    Everything you need to know about stock photo rights but were afraid to ask:

    Stock Image Copyright Law Quick Guide | Licensing Photos, Graphics + Web Images

    Like Max said, though, it's always good to review the ToS and deal with each stock photo you want on a case-by-case basis.

    One other thing: if you can, use your own photos. They'll be your own intellectual property and they'll be unique, meaning you'll both avoid any licensing issues and provide original content for your site.
