Hi all,

This is a very basic question and is probably covered in a forum elsewhere that I can’t find. I’m new to Shutterstock and I understand the difference between commercial and editorial images, but I was wondering whether commercial images could be used for editorial purposes? I understand that editorial images cannot be used for commercial purposes, but was wondering if the opposite was true for commercial ones.

The reason I ask is that I’m focused on wildlife, landscape and nature photography, many of which would be suited to editorial requirements but also commercial. I’m uploading as commercial images - would this limit their potential usage by editorial clients?

Thanks in advance for your help and sorry if this is a stupid question - only created an account yesterday so very new to the Shutterstock world!
