Pond5 for Mac is a popular stock media marketplace that enables creative individuals, teams, and businesses a way to discover and purchase an incredible variety of stock photos, music tracks, sound effects, videos, 3D models, and After Effects templates that can enrich projects of all types and sizes.

Instead of forcing users to access large libraries of stock content via subscriptions, this innovative SaaS platform Pond5 for macOS empowers users to purchase specific pieces of content at the best prices found online, and own them forever. An additional subscription option is of course also available, separated into content categories such as Music, Music & SFX, Footage Plus, and Custom.

Save time and money with high-quality footage by professional artists from around the world

Pond5 for Mac was created in 2006 and was a streamlined online marketplace that aimed to fulfill the needs of video producers on projects of all sizes, not by directly owning a large library of stock content, but by enabling 3rd party content creators to offer their content directly to customers from all around the world.

Quickly after that, the scope of their offerings expanded beyond video and introduced large libraries of photos, music, sound effects, 3D models, and Adobe After Effects templates. In 2022, Pond5 was acquired by Shutterstock, but its website, large community of creators, and streamlined browsing and purchase tools are still available to everyone for use.

Download unique, beautiful, and high-quality stock footage

After landing on its main website using any modern internet browser such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, or Mozilla Firefox, users are encouraged to immediately start exploring the large library of content that Pond5 hosts. This can be done via a powerful search engine that features simple to use tabbed interface, and support for tags and filtering using a wide array of options (Commercial/Editorial, price, collection type, duration, artist, image ratio, and much more).

The platform also hosts a small section of 100% free stock content, which includes HD and 4K video clips, music, and photos, which can be used both commercially and for personal projects. Each piece of stock content is available for purchase at various quality levels [image sizes or video resolution), with the best price guarantee available for each piece of content.

Does Pond5 have free content?

Yes! Pond5’s Free Collection is home to more than 3,000 complimentary HD & 4K video clips, images, and music tracks, yours to use in personal or business projects. With Public Domain Project, you also have access to thousands of free historic media files.

Affordable Pricing for Every Project

Once purchased, the content is fully owned by the user and can be deployed on any project worldwide, including licenses for use on the most popular social network platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok), video hosting sites (YouTube, Vimeo, Twitch), posted on the web (blogs, presentations) and use in any type of commercial and noncommercial projects (films, commercials, games, broadcasts, marketing, and more).
