Welcome to the New Lightstock

We've made some BIG changes. So we went ahead and answered some of the BIG questions you might have.

What happened to credits?

With the introduction of unlimited membership options and cash pricing, offering credits doesn't really make sense anymore.

But if you're one of the thousands of Lightstock users with a cache of credits, you'll have an entire year (through January 1, 2023) to use them just like you would have before. You just won't be able to purchase more.

To check if you have any available credits, simply log in to your account. Your available credits will show up in the top right of any page.

What happened to "ready-made" media?

Slides, social graphics, and print templates have a new home.

If you're looking for the elements to make your own content, you'll find them on Lightstock. If you want something ready-to-go, head over to our ready-made church media site, Igniter Media .

You can be unlimited there, too.

Becoming unlimited is kind of a no‑brainer.
An unlimited membership is almost guaranteed to save you both time and money—at the same time it gives you more freedom to be more creative.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, you'll need to sign up for a new membership plan to get unlimited access.
With this change, your subscription access will continue through November 8, 2022, and you'll be able to use whatever remaining credits you have through then. But your subscription will not continue adding credits to your account, and you won't be able to purchase more credits.
Yes. They will remain on your account through November 8, 2022, when we sunset the credit system for good.
If you downloaded something in a subscription, you retain the license for that download as long as you have an active membership or subscription. If you downloaded something with Pay-As-You-Go credits, you retain download access indefinitely. We have functionally extended all active subscription periods to end on November 8, 2022-so even if your subscription was supposed to end tomorrow, you'll retain access to your remaining credits through November 8, 2022. You'll retain access to membership downloads as long as you have an active membership.
Yes, but only for a project that was begun during your membership period. In other words, stockpiling unused stock assets is against our terms. Read more about that here.
This unlimited model launch doesn't affect the usability of your existing credits—they're worth just as much as they were before.
You can now purchase access to individual products with cash instead of credits, and we made it easier to purchase extended licenses. You may also notice some ongoing updates to the design of the site that improve your experience. Finally, we removed "ready-made" products (slides, social graphics, print templates) from the site.
No, but you can continue to use them through November 8, 2022. Why? Mainly because the methods we use to pay our contributors are tied to the way you made your purchase.
