  1. Give up authorship to our own images? Is that correct? what does that really mean?
  2. I have had to wait days for editorial to be approved (and also had them approved in minutes) only to have almost everything rejected to for "similar content". Are people on here also having massive rejections for editorial with the rejection reason being "similar content" - I do not mind a rejection if it is valid but the review process lately is passing up on very valuable content.
  3. these massive amounts of rejections are new though, I did not experience this over the years until relatively recently? Is there some type of screening process not done by humans that cuts down the edits before it goes to an actual reviewer?
  4. thank you for the suggestion. Might you know what his title is and the best way to contact him is. Contacting SS support is beyond useless I would not even consider doing that. Any thoughts on resubmitting the set? Sending them in one at a time is just not practical as they events have to many people there and I never had any issues before until recently.
  5. I have since deleted the 4 photos from the premiere that they accepted, since they when I resubmitted the ones rejected they were rejected again. I couldn't justify them taking such a horrendous edit. Does it pay to resubmit the set one more time and see what happens? or will everything automatically be rejected again? Whats the deal with resubmitting. Overall, I just dont have the time to play this game with them. Does anyone here know if there is any possibility of getting in touch with a human being to discuss with and come to resolution or is it always their way or the highway.
  6. does this seem to happen more with editorial content or does that not matter? If something is rejected - how does resubmitting to get it approved work? is that possible or no? I dont really mind rejections when they are valid and reasonable but some of the stuff Im seeing is beyond extreme.
  7. Hello All. Just wanted to post regarding the recent slew of rejections pertaining to "similar content" and see if anyone has any ideas or wants to chime in. I am an editorial supplier to SS and have been for quite sometime. I was rarely getting any rejections at all until past several months - to a year ago, where photos were being rejected as "similar content". The rejection percentage was getting worse and worse and now its to the point where it does not make sense to upload material. This is unfortunate as now that I have a slow few weeks ahead I was hoping to catch on supplying
  8. Does anyone know if it is possible to add a keyword to a set of multiple images that have already been approved and accepted? I know you can add or edit images one by one, but is it possible to add one or two keywords to say 50 images at once without changed anything else in the caption? Thank You.
  9. It seems the amount listed on my 2018 tax form is higher than my own calculations of 2018 royalties made in Jan - Dec of 2018. Has anyone else experienced this or any an insight on this matter? I just tried to email them and its not letting me put the inquiry after I hit send... nothing happens. Thank You.
  10. I had an image used in a magazine with a circulation of over 500,000 copies. I did not not receive any enhanced license fee for that usage which is outrageous. I also have not been able to get clarification on how much I was paid either - just that that particular publication has "preferred rates". Has anyone on here run into this issue before?
  11. Has anyone on here had any experience with an image being used in a publication that was over 500,000 in circulation and NOT being paid an enhanced license fee? It was my understanding that if the publication had a circulation of over 500,000 copies an enhanced license was required - has anyone any specific insight on this? Thank You!
