  1. I just wrote my review at Google play store for the "Shutterstock contributor" app with rating 1.. The new reward system is like getting youngster to work with minimal salary - he/she can try to grow, show professional growing, get some salary rise, but next year, 1 st January - starting career again with an entry salary.. Forever young 😞
  2. This petition at "change org" was published in the announcements thread about payout change.Not by me, but I would make it more visible for everybody Please join also. It is the easy way to show how many we are here disagree with SS payout change.. http://chng.it/T7QY4kbJDb

  4. I do not see noise on all pics, but that with sunset has noise even with lower resolution posted here. I actually always use noise reduction on all pictures I submit. Not those that built in LR or Photoshop, but external 3PPs which I pay for extra..
  5. thanks Richard, I use Windows 10 and I open file properties I see EXIF data on RAW/JPEG photos but on videos which just uploaded from camera, Sony fdr ax700, I see just ordinary general file metadata. When I process a video and then render in AE, that metadata changes to producing date, not original shooting date. Photos keeps original EXIF data even after were changed much in Lightroom, but videos seems not.. probably problem in MR which I overlooked.. I usually use Dreamstime MR form (SS accepts Dreamstime releases) and this case I attached the photo of my son (19 years old), not his driving license as I usually do
  6. Hello, I got video submission rejection which says "One or more of the attached model releases does not meet our requirements". I have written many Model Releases and cannot see any visible problem in my release beside one thing.. I was filming a number of videos during long holiday, 4 days in April. Trying to avoid much work with releases I made one MR dated by last day of four which I thought could be used to cover all dates because when I process my videos and grade in Adobe After Effects it will be the date when I finally release my videos, now in May, not date when I filmed my videos, four different dates. Possible reason for the rejection could be if my processed videos still contain some kind of EXIF data which says when film originally was taken, that info could show that filming date and date in MR are different. In photos I know how to check that info, but in videos I could not find any EXIF data.. Do anybody know where should I look
  7. ha ha , look at the whole picture, probably you change your mind 🙂 black sand is volcanic one as almost everywhere could find on Bali.. Crystal Bay at Nusa Penida Bali.. Great diving site as well!
  8. thanks again, it is lot easier avoid problems than treat them 🙂
  9. thanks for the prompt reply - I agree, that person can recognise themself.. I am also on that photo, not on the example sample here.. I can recognize myself of course...
  10. Hello, I submitted many times my photos where unknown people were on the photo, but quite far to be identified without face details I also added in the description something like "bla bla and the group of unidentifiable people" But every time I wondered how detailed must be people on the picture to be editorial. Here is 5% of my photo from the drone on Bali this month. The photo is panoramic and shows all around for a few km away and even people on the beach below the drone.. Could someone say if it is editorial and if so which person as the example is possibly identifiable from SS point of view and make this photo editorial?
  11. Here is solution I found for future use who get the same problem with reference photo upload for an illustration Finally I fixed the problem - reference image has to be submitted as a "property release", I was right. I decreased the size of the original photo to 800 pixels and it become accepted, I submitted all now.. The error message while uploading reference image in the original size is misleading, it produces the same error as for ordinary uploads but internally (at server side) the trigger size for release is much smaller - my reference images is just 250 Kb now, I suspect the max size is around of 1Mb, I had 1.7 Mb with 1920x1080 dimensions and got the error...
  12. Hello, I recently read the discussion about how to upload a digital illustration made from own photo. I think it was written tha reference photo has to be uploaded as a release...? I tried to upload as property release in original size jpeg like 7000x5500. Got an error about permitted file sized 50 mb for jpeg and 15 for EPS.. My file was ~20 Mb I decrease resolution t0 1920X1080, file became just 1.7Mb, but still cannot upload it.. What I am doing wrong? there is no special place for that .. At least I do not know 😞 Could someone push me to the right direction? 🙂
  13. I have submitted two houses different times, one for about 2 years ago was accepted - this one below, see the screenshot, another one - for one year ago was more older and was standing in green bushes which have grown around, but the windows were not broken and some very rotten old furniture was inside, that one was rejected
  14. Another stock company which is also is huge SW company which name starts from "A" has no logo on smaller preview pictures. They started new site after they bought very big Stock company, "refactored" and included as additional product to their SW.. I think that it is reason why Shutterstock has removed the logos from the smaller previews. Considering that many people use mobile or handhold devices those small free previews are good enough for small screen site designs 😞
