  1. Most probably your images will not be reviewed immediately. That means if you were not so lucky, the effect of uploading few times 3 images will be the same as with the batch. By sending 3 first images you will get into "review queue" and when fetched by reviewer, they will most probably fetch all your uploaded images.
  2. I gathered some data self-reported by contributors in forum to see more broad effect on earnings after 1 month from the change. https://xpiksapp.com/blog/2020/shutterstock-aftermath-june/ Subscriptions losses are totally aligned with previous calculations, but On-Demand downloads were less predictable.

  4. I did some calculations to estimate contributor earnings loss based on number of monthly downloads. Since you know your monthly downloads, you can check how much you are affected by this change. Here's a link to analysis: https://xpiksapp.com/blog/2020/new-shutterstock-earnings-breakdown/ and there's also a link to Jupyter notebook in the blogpost if you want to verify/change the calculations. Currently if you have around 100 monthly video downloads, you will loose around 2.5% of earnings for the whole year. But if you have only 20 video downloads per month, you will loose as much as 19% in total earnings. You can check more numbers in the blog

  8. Xpiks just got notarized for macOS Catalina https://xpiksapp.com/blog/2019/xpiks-notarized-for-macos/ In case anybody couldn't start Xpiks because of "Xpiks can't be opened because it is from an unidentified developer", now this is solved and there shouldn't be any issues. Also there's a new blogpost: How to upload video to Shutterstock https://xpiksapp.com/blog/2019/how-to-upload-video-shutterstock/ Let me know what do you think
  9. I'm happy to announce Xpiks 1.5.3 update! Main feature is support for standalone vector files that is essential for new Shutterstock vector upload rules. Also it contains a handful of improvements and bugfixes. You can read in depth about this release and features in the Xpiks Blog: https://xpiksapp.com/blog/2019/xpiks-153-release
  10. I think it is not possible in Xpiks to delete keywords based on number of keywords. Closest thing in Xpiks you can do is to group images with similar keywords (I highly doubt you have 5000 images with unique keywords) and do so some of the steps described above. If you are a "power user" not afraid of command line applications, particularly exiftool (https://sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/) then you can export all keywords to csv file, open it in Excel, some some magic there and import them again with exiftool. In order to do that you would need to read the documentation on exiftool command line parameters.
  11. Hi Of course this is possible. There're 2 ways to do it. 1. Batch Editing (tutorial https://xpiksapp.com/tutorials/batch-basic/) using Partial changes (https://xpiksapp.com/tutorials/batch-partial/) - you set new keywords in a batch. This way all images will have same keywords (the ones that you will specify) 2. Deleting keywords from a batch (https://xpiksapp.com/tutorials/howto-delete-keywords/) - you specify keywords that you would like to remove in selected images. This way you will only remove keywords in a number of images in a batch.
  12. Hi. I don't understand your question. Description/Title/Keywords are saved inside the image. When you "Save" in Xpiks metadata is stored inside image/video files.
  13. I'm staring a croudfunding campaign for Xpiks! Please consider supporting Xpiks to make new awesome features become possible. Read more about it here: https://xpiksapp.com/donatecampaign/
  14. Xpiks tutorials are ready! Do you know how to batch delete keywords or to copy all metadata from image in keywords suggestion? Master QuickBuffer, Hotkeys, Presets groups, CSV and many other topics in more than 25 free short screencasted lessons! Suitable both for novices and power users. http://xpiksapp.com/tutorials/ Please don't forget to like Xpiks page on Facebook to support the project!
  15. Hi Linda There was a known issue with video thumbnails. If your Xpiks version is lower than 1.5.0.5 then please download new one from the website. Regarding metadata saving - can you please elaborate on that? Also sending the logs will help a lot (http://xpiksapp.com/2015/09/03/how-to-report-an-error/) I will look into the issue with warning as well, thank you for reporting it.
