Just use unsplash or something, although I guess it's kinda worth it if you use a lot of stock photos (e.g you run a business)

Their free trial is okay Smile Depending on what do you need, they have some amazing illustrators from Eastern Europe. If you go with the free trial, you can get 10 licensed for commercial used illustrations, instead of buying them on CreativeMarket, for example. Many of the artists work on multiple platforms, so Shutterstock has a free trial, but CreativeMarket-like sites, don't.

But you cannot licence them. Think of Shutterstock not only as an image bank, but a platform to make sure that your clients would never have copyright issues.
