    Every Building Now Requiring "Property Release"

    Thank you!

    @Alex Shutterstock Alex, I could really use some help trying to sort this out. Chateau Chambord in France is Europe's largest enclosed park, owned by the state and considered public land but images of the grounds and exterior chateau get rejected. That does not seem consistent with the policy you sent me. Thanks.

    It is the reviewers job to know the difference and to help SS make money and succeed. Some of us do quite well selling commercial images as sod and el which benefits SS. To not have trained knowledgeable reviewers is to limit success.

    @Alex Shutterstock Alex, this building is a public library and the photo was taken on public property but it gets rejected. Why?

    @Alex Shutterstock Alex, Chateau Chambord in France is the largest enclosed park in Europe but everything I submit gets rejected for property release.

    Are you still laughing now? Did you see SS response?

    @Alex Shutterstock In thinking about your policy public vs private property, I would say that a huge percentage of your photos in inventory s/b editorial but are not. And how does someone even know at times if it is public or private property? Can you understand the difficulty that gets created from this?

    @Alex ShutterstockSo if it is taken on public property, should I mention that in the description? Many of the images submitted have been on public property and that can easily be detected by the photo itself. Many images that get approved are taken on private property. I do not know how a reviewer can make that call and that seems to be a major frustration for everyone. I often travel with a friend and when they or I get images approved and then we cannot for the same location, it becomes ridiculous. Why not just broaden your list of restricted sites and be done with it so we all know the ground rules?

    Welcome to SS. You will find that the review process is very inconsistent and it seems to have gotten worse. One will reviewer will approve and the next three will not. They have a list of restricted sites (those that can only be submitted as editorial) but the reviewers do not seem to pay any attention to that. They seem to be afraid to approve anything that is not editorial for anything that remotely looks like a potential landmark location. Trying to get help/support on this issues seems to fall on deaf ears.

    But some will be approved and others of the same location will not be approved. This has been going on for a while but it has gotten much worse.

    It does not seem to matter anymore how many buildings are in the photo.

    I have been having everything being rejected; part or whole of buildings. And then sometimes the same location will get accepted. It has become too frustrating. I don't understand the rationale.
