Having utilized Depositphotos for several years, I’ve discovered that it’s a highly underrated stock photo platform offering competitive pricing. As mentioned in my review, it may not measure up to Shutterstock in aspects such as indemnity coverage, image selection, and pricing structure. However, it remains an exceptional resource for stock images, primarily due to its budget-friendly starting costs.

Image prices entail photos and vectors you get through subscriptions and on-demand packs.

Image subscription prices

Stock photo subscriptions typically offer various plans based on the number of monthly image downloads. These plans usually range from 10 to 750 downloads per month, with higher options being less common. Prices for most 10-download plans fall between $30 and $60 per month. Depositphotos stands out by offering 30 downloads per month at a similar price point, resulting in a lower cost per image.

Depositphotos provides four subscription options: 25 (30 when subscribed annually), 75, 150, and 750 images per month. Customers can choose between monthly or annual commitments, with the latter offering a discount of approximately 20%. The following table outlines the complete range of Depositphotos image subscription options:

25 (30 with yearly)$36 ($1.44/image)$29 ($0.97/image)$24.92 ($0.83/image)

If you exhaust your monthly download limit, you can purchase extra downloads at $1 each. Any unused downloads from your Depositphotos subscription will also roll over to the subsequent month.

Images on demand

When you don’t have consistent monthly image needs, on-demand (or pay-as-you-go) options offer greater flexibility but can also be more costly. In this regard, Depositphotos doesn’t differentiate itself significantly, providing comparable prices per image for smaller packages while offering lower costs per image when purchasing a 100-pack.

Number of downloadsPrice
3 images$42 ($14.00/image)
11 images$65 ($5.91/image)
25 images$99 ($3.96/image)

The above prices are for the standard royalty-free license, which is good for blogs and most commercial use as long as you make more than 500,000 copies of it. However, if you want to use it for merchandise or need more than 500,000 copies, you will need the Extended royalty-free license. Here are the prices:
