    Microstock collapse?

    Agree totally. In todays tech industry users are gold. The more users the more a company can boost their value. A tech company don’t need to earn much money - it’s the amount of users that sets the value. Even companies with a substantial deficit can be worth billions if they have generated millions of users. I think that is the point for (some) microstock business today. It’s quantity before quality.

    Yes, you’re right, Simone. Why have reviewers at all ..??? SS could save lots of time and money by letting customers decide themselves!

    I think SS has a huge problem with the algorithms - or where the problem lies ..? It’s not always spamming from contributors. It seems like SS takes every word in the description and keywords in the search.  If you search eg. “Old couple in park” you get hits with both old asian buildings, parks, couples and lots of other irrelevant images: https://www.shutterstock.com/search?search_source=base_landing_page&language=en&searchterm=Old+couple+in+park&image_type=all On every other microstock sites you only get the relevant images.  So even if you have only ONE wrong keyword the spamming occurs. It can unfortunately happen for me too that a wrong keyword is among the 50.  This is a serious issue for SS - and for us ..!

    Milestone 14,000

    It must be frustrating for buyers to look at hundreds of irrelevent pages of duplicate images and really bad images (millions of terrible images are accepted now). Quantity has become king. I don’t understand SS politics but there must be a deeper meaning ...?

    Suggestions for new contributor?

    Your port looks fine in my opinion. But many of the images are a bit under exposed. You only need a thousand images more ...! 😂
