  1. Perhaps you should stop pushing potential buyers to Adobe Stock and Pond5? Shutterstock does all the advertising for you, it is your choice. BTW if any of the Admins here who give a shit about their company should take a long hard look at someone who send clients to the competition then complains about their f%cking sales here. Just my two pesos worth.
  2. Had a few decent sales this month - my planetary renders are doing great.
  3. It appears to be OOF perhaps not the water itself but the rocks are etc. It almost looks like you shot this handheld.
  4. Some of your images appear very dull, dark without vibrance for marketing department for a company selling ads for Koh Samui...Think about that for second, you are trying to sell images to advertisers, marketers and professionals. Here is your competition my man, take a look - never forget that you are COMPETING with these images. And straighten your horizons, Jesus. https://www.shutterstock.com/search/koh+samui?image_type=photo
  5. This is shameful...you have a high quality port even with a couple of hundred it smokes those with thousands easily. SS doesn't realize that we have to pay taxes on these sales as well which further reduces the amount.
  6. The worst part is my praying hands is on first page for 'Black Lives Matter' search and bringing in average of .10 a download.
  7. I used to make .33 cents (or more) per image now it's .10 cents. Stock is basically DOA at this moment, too many contributors being accepted drowning out the database and there are other free sites with really good work if not better. Read up the thread, long time money makers are shutting their accounts down.
  8. @Kate Shutterstock You're losing some top brass contributors, I might be next if some of my top sellers are going for ten cents. Your remaining contributors will be the ones who are not photographers who cannot find focus who cannot compose a top seller the ones who dump thousands of images into your database. You are running off some the best of the best.
