  1. New Submission Page Update & Poll!

    Stranger things have happened...I have had images submitted and approved that I did not submit (in queue) with completely wrong description and keywords. I changed it all in catalog and they are good to go.
  2. Intellectual Property

    Disappointing for sure.
  3. Intellectual Property

    I thought I knew what intellectual property meant but not any more. It seems to be at the reviewers discretion. I had two images of the same thing taken from slightly different perspectives and one was approved and one rejected for intellectual property. They were submitted at the same time but reviewed at different times. I have had statues and shop/store signs approved and ancient wood carvings mounted on old buildings rejected. All too often it seems to be "reviewers discretion". And yes, I know the drill; resubmit and see what happens or just submit as editorial and avoid the hassle.
  4. Editing Pending Content

    Does this explain why images we do not actually submit get approved or images that are approved/rejected remain in the queue?
  5. First nine days of December. Zero sales.

    Unfortunately photos of Italy rarely sell unless you do something more creative/interesting; what do people generally miss in Italy/Venice? Your photos need to "tell a story". Look at industries such as the wine industry and take photos that tell a story about the "wine" experience...that sells.
  6. Truncated descriptions, keywords missing...

    It is not only with videos. I have been in contact with Nancy. I have had entire descriptions and keywords changed on images in this new submission system and they get approved with this erroneous information. They obviously installed this system w/o full testing and now it is affecting or infecting everything.
  7. Cannot Copy and Paste Keywords on active files?

    OK, I have found a way to do this. You have to highlight all the keywords including the "44/50 Keywords" below the box of keywords. Then copy and paste and then delete the "44/50 keywords". That is the only way I have found to get around to get around it.
  8. New Submission Page Update & Poll!

    @Alex Shutterstock This has now happened on more than one batch. On a batch submitted yesterday and approved, after all the images were in the catalog, one got completely changed even though yesterday it was correct when it originally was in the catalog. I went in the catalog this morning to see if I could correct it and I was able to do that. That confounds me is how an image got approved that I did not even submit yet??? It is in my queue waiting to be submitted.
  9. I have had several images approved and now they are showing completely wrong, unrelated descriptions and keywords. I even had one image approved that I DID NOT SUBMIT yet and it has an unrelated description and keywords. This is really messed up.
  10. New Submission Page Update & Poll!

    I just had recently submitted photos approved with the completely wrong description and keywords. I even had one approved that I DID NOT SUBMIT with completely unrelated description and keywords. This is really messed up! I hope this is not what is meant by "experience the new submissions page".
  11. New Submission Page Update & Poll!

    I just happen to stumble across this. I have no idea how many images this affects yet.
  12. New Submission Page Update & Poll!

    @Kate Shutterstock URGENT PROBLEM! I have submitted many, many photos using the new submission process and they have been approved but now I find, in the catalog manager, that the descriptions and keywords are COMPLETELY WRONG and pertain to other photos. How and the heck does this happen and how do I find and correct this mistake. One such photo is 767230507.
  13. Had 2 El's Sell today...lowest price I have ever seen.

    It has been a little while since I have had an EL.
  14. Had 2 El's Sell today...lowest price I have ever seen.

    It about diminishing returns for everyone. It is a continuing downward trend.
  15. I had two ELs sell today for $14.27/each. I don't recall an EL ever selling for that low of a commission price.
