  1. After a seven month trial I've cashed out and I'm on my way. Thank those who gave helpful advice when I started. In the words of the great Cole Porter: 'It was great fun but it was just one of those things . . . . '
  2. There is no point. That's the point.
  3. Still a newbie but learning. Just two completely irrelevant thoughts: 1. The first photograph of mine downloaded was of floating sea ice that I took from a cruise ship in Alaska. I live in Australia where sea ice is unknown and it was bought by some one in Norway where they have sea ice about nine months of the year. 2. The attached photograph of a man hole (person hole?) cover in a car park not aligned properly before the lines were repainted is an illustration in the Polish language edition of the Harvard Review of Business on the topic of stress management.
  4. Technical breakthrough: How the description is worded will affect the focus of the photograph. I uploaded a photograph that was rejected becuse 'main subject was out of focus'. It looked alright to me so I re-wrote the description and that must have brought the main subject back into focus because it was accepted.
  5. Yes, thank you Thomas. I had noted this contribution with some interest.
  6. Finally, thank you all again and I am declaring this post closed.
  7. Again, thank you all and especially to you, Laurin, for some very helpful information.
  8. Thank you all for your comments.
  9. Thank you Leonard, but I have done just that, except for re-wording the caption, and it has been rejected the second time.
  10. I have submitted this picture twice now, rejected both times, and below is the correspondence about it. You may like it or hate it, but the way it is, is the way I want it. What do you think about this, or what do you suggest? And now, read on: ME: I refer to my upload: 1037760241 that has been rejected: 'Exposure -- Image is extremely underexposed or overexposed'. It is not under or over exposed; it is exactly as I wanted it. I have had this problem before - I had to re-upload one three times before the assessor realised that it was the way I intended it. With this one I used this caption: "Beautifully exposed afternoon mountain lake scene with bright highlights balanced against shadows. Two silhouette spectators. Almost monochrome but with distant deep blue mountains. I thought my message would make the assessor realise that it was exactly as I wanted it. Can you arrange to have it added to my portfolio, please, or what do I have to say if I re-submit it? SS: Thank you for contacting Shutterstock Contributor Care. We appreciate your concern regarding your review. We strive for a consistent review experience; however, we realize there is always room for improvement. All content is reviewed by professionals with significant experience in the creative sector. Each image or clip is reviewed on an individual basis with guidelines set by Shutterstock. If you disagree with a rejection, you are welcome to resubmit your content for a secondary review. Your submission will be reevaluated while taking into consideration the previous rejection reasons. Please keep in mind that this does not guarantee approval. Any information explaining an artistic intention is not just important to the reviewer to properly evaluate your content, but is also very useful for a customer to know, so we ask you to explain your intention behind the image in the Title/description. The reviewer will take this into consideration during the review process and, if your image is approved, it will help the customer to better judge the image and your intention. Should you need any further information or assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us. ME: Thank you, I will try again but in this case I did explain my 'artistic intention'. My title said: ' Beautifully exposed afternoon mountain lake scene with bright highlights balanced against shadows. Two silhouette spectators. Almost monochrome but with distant deep blue mountains'. I don't know how else you can explain it, especially as you have only 200 keystrokes to do so. Also, as happened on a previous occasion, I had to go to the trouble of resubmitting it three time before it was accepted. Could you have another box to tick saying that the exposure of this image is exactly as I wanted it and it is not to be rejected because it is under/over exposed? SS: Thank you for contacting Shutterstock Contributor Care. Unfortunately, currently we do not have such features that allows you to tick a box when you are submitting an image that is over exposed or under exposed as per your artistic intentions. Should you need any further information or assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us. The same picture has just been rejected for the second time for the same silly reason, this time with the caption: 'Magnificent almost monochrome picture of lake shimmering in afternoon light with silhouette of two people in foreground and deep blue mountains in background. Dark foreground'. What else can I put? Will you sort this out immediately, please. As to a box to tick regarding 'artistic intentions', I realise that you haven't got one but my suggestion was that you make such a feature available.
  11. Thank you also Sheila. The reason I made it editorial is that I had had other signs rejected until I resubmitted them as editorial.
  12. Thank you Linda. It is, as the saying goes, a steep learning curve. Some rejections puzzle me. I had one rejected because it said I had already uploaded it. I hadn't, so I resubmitted it saying in the caption that it was not in my portfolio (making an unusual caption). It was rejected again because the main image was out of focus. It wasn't so I resubmitted it, wording the caption to say that, and it was rejected because 'Non-Licensable Content -- Due to legal compliance restrictions, we cannot license this content in our collection'. Why not have said that in the first place? Are uploads scanned and accepted/rejected by computer? The one I wrote about: 'Illustrative Editorial Keyword Requirement -- The keywords "illustrative" and "editorial" or the keyword phrase "illustrative editorial" must be used for this image' was an unposed street portrait that was similar to others that had been accepted, another reason why I was puzzled.
  13. Don't laugh, I'm still new here and have figured out Editorial, but when do you tick Illustrative? Also I got this message with a rejection: 'llustrative Editorial Keyword Requirement -- The keywords "illustrative" and "editorial" or the keyword phrase "illustrative editorial" must be used for this image', all of which seems to mean that I just resubmit the image as is but add those words. Is there a code word to tell the under/over exposed editor that the way I have submitted it is the way I intended it to be?
  14. Thank you very much for the suggestions.
  15. Sometimes the keyword suggester seems to go mad with excitement. I have just had one with 25 suggestions and not one of them had any connection to the picture at all. One was 'Ukraine' and nothing in the photograph was remotely connected with the Ukraine.
