  1. 0.10 is not free image. If you go to the pricing page and do the math according to your level, you will see where they come from. Last year when the commission cut happened, we drove ourselves crazy with calculations but still didn't find all the answers. Since last year things changed to the worse, impossible to find all the answers . If you go back in this thread, you will find some more unanswered question. You take what they pay you, or leave, that is the only answer. Here is a chart I made last year, it is just a part of the variants. It changes by country, by currency
  2. Hi, Usually this can happen if the auto-rotate feature of the camera is turned off. You can correct the orientation of the original photos in a software (PS, LR) but after you do that, don't forget to save the image. Now you can try uploading it to SS. Some software like Microsoft Paint, Microsoft Image Viewer, ......... are not able to change image origination. I hope this helps.
  3. That is a shame. I am only level 4 but regardless, I thought these minimums are only for subs. I was wrong.
  4. You are right, I don't care either but being the first time, I was surprised.
  5. That's the first, for me. How about you?
  6. Check out this support file for FTPS upload, scroll down the page for Cyberduck: https://support.submit.shutterstock.com/s/article/How-do-I-upload-content-via-FTPS?language=en_US&c3nid=MC-3266_Contributor_Product_Release_FTPS_1_2021-07-25&launch_ID=42622405&utm_campaign=MC-3266_Contributor_Product_Release_FTPS_1&utm_medium=email&c3ch=Email&customer_ID=222731345&pl=emailcore-shutters.25758365&campaign_ID=shutters.25758365&utm_source=sstkemail&cr=null
  7. OMG, how is this possible? I understand glitches happen but these are favors for some, outrageous.
  8. Good idea, unfortunately nobody listens. This forum is totally on autopilot, soon there will be more spam advertisements than real contributor comments.
  9. I agree, it is bent and as I said, I would call it "Insider privileges". Everything is possible on these sites and here is proof; who is the author of this (stolen) video? https://www.shutterstock.com/video/clip-1061980879-stem-3d-cells-embryonic-dna-immune-particle
  10. Is this your first video upload? I haven't uploaded videos for a long time but I don't recall that it was ever possible to upload video with metadata, on SS. However you can upload a CVS file containing all metadata or you have to paste them in after upload, in the editor.
  11. @Heide, Try to delete the /de from the URL like so: https://www.shutterstock.com/de/g/HeidePinkall https://www.shutterstock.com/g/HeidePinkall Probably, you will have to clear browser cache before.
  12. There is a third one too and strangely this one has no author: https://www.shutterstock.com/video/clip-1061980879-stem-3d-cells-embryonic-dna-immune-particle How is this even possible? SS turns a blind eye to thieves and also to similar content (in this case) but you could try to contact PB. In their terms they say: I understand that you don't complain but these guys don't deserve to get away with such practices. I wish you luck!
  13. Hi Alessandro, The short answer to your question is this: https://support.submit.shutterstock.com/s/article/New-Contributor-Earnings-Structure-FAQ?language=en_US However, this is not exactly the complete answer. Many times we don't know why we get what we get and SS doesn't give us more detailed explanations.
  14. There is something I don't understand, you said in the other thread: Which one is it now? You seem to know a lot about this stuff, I just know what I've learned on the web. You can search for the answer yourself. Anyway, a less harsh language would be nice. We are not in the army! Now, I will follow @balajisrinivasan's example and bow myself out of this topic as well.
  15. Oh please, be serious. I haven't signed or even seen their NDA but we are neither SS's employees nor business partners. Freelancers (in their right mind) are not happy to sign any NDA, especially when they can't read it in advance. If I understood correctly, that is what happened here, first you click the button to sign, then they show you what you've signed for. Anyway, now that the secret is out, everyone is off the hook.
  16. Not just two, they are everywhere with some stupid comment and a link, no portfolio. Some more of them in the last 24 hours: @Peter Runyon, @Suzanne Torphy, @Gilberarthol, @nocturnal enamc, @ThomasBax6,.................. Nobody seems to care from SS part, why would they?
  17. SS's automatic system works just fine but the month is not over yet. https://support.submit.shutterstock.com/s/article/How-do-I-get-paid-for-my-work?language=en_US
  18. Alstroemeria, commonly called the Peruvian lily or lily of the Incas. The first is the scientific name, it is a beauty.
  19. SS doesn't show us views. You can only see your downloads and earnings on your dashboard at "Earnings summary".
  20. You are welcome. I guess this time the reviewer was awake, there were many rejections like this during the years. Hope it works this time.
  21. Special characters are not allowed in the description and "/" is a special character. In this case "/" means "or", as in "state or country", where both are not necessary. Just write "Prague, Czech Republic - Month........." and it will be accepted. https://support.submit.shutterstock.com/s/article/Why-was-my-content-rejected-for-Editorial-Caption?language=en_US The given example by SS is very confusing, not your fault.
  22. Certo che รจ vero! I didn't mean to check on you, I remember admiring your art when you came. I also admired your insistence when you started learning to draw vectors. I envied you because I was not determined enough to learn.
  23. Where did you get that from? Eligible are all they want to choose. In my batch of 681eligible images many have just one download in their lifetime, in 7 years.
