  1. Unfortunately all the complaining will not change the course of things. Shutterstock has been already very clear about that. You have a beautiful portfolio. Only you have to decide if it is worth sticking here or move along to other venues. At one time a very famous contributors we all know, with millions of sales had to take the same decision.
