  1. There is a gas or oil tank with logo. There are also several bar's or hotel's names. I also would remove all names of the ships.

    Unexpected download you had

    well... the location surprised me: Tel Aviv, Israel - I'd never thought, anything in German language would be downloaded especially from this country.

    How is your image being used?

    I am not quite sure - I'm guessing it is about 2,5m high. Hm... yes, I think it is no problem to use an editorial picuture this way. There's no commercial advertising, writing etc. on it. It is used as a kind of exhibition of local pictures. Other supermarkets of that company have such pictures of local sights on their walls as well. They show the region where the supermarket is located.

    How is your image being used?

    What a surprise! I went to a local supermarket that opened in August 2018. Suddenly I noticed a roller shutter was closing. Involuntarily, I turned my head there because something was moving. After the shutter was closed I stared at the picture... I knew it. It was mine... I NEVER noticed it before... But it is quite big! Although I don't go to this supermarket daily, I have been there several times since August... It was only because of the moving, I turned my head... πŸ™‚ https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/elsfleth-niedersachsen-germany-june-19-2007-1024936204?fbclid=IwAR0jwQ-4nE-vk5f82_qGc3_C_MdMIrKh5EdX8qzIfWySjO8Xsoz4GBtdBRY

    auto fill in...

    how do you deactivate this? When I type something it comes automatically...

    auto fill in...

    it was now accepted with "Hunsruck"...

    auto fill in...

    To any representative of Shutterstock: Please work on the "auto fill in" function... ( @Alex Shutterstock) I just got a rejection, because I did not see that there were some words added by "auto fill in" - I typed "exterior" instead of "extreme sports", "facade" instead of "facebook", "leafless" instead of "leaf - and I am sure, I did not write "trade" either but forgot what should be the right word. I often see this function causing trash. It would be very nice when one could de-activate it at least. And... about the title: what is wrong with it? "Hunsrück" with "ü"? (while accepting "GroßrÀschen" at an other picture with "ß" and "À")??? Any suggestions what could be wrong with it next to this?
  9. very good - and interesting to read πŸ™‚

    Well, Christmas related pictures sold just before Christmas. I think that' not a big surprise πŸ˜‰ What I can say in general is: editorials sell. But there are always picutres I wonder about, i. e. who needs a picture of a coffin one day after Christmas? πŸ˜‰ So... you never know what clients may be looking for. The bigger the variety of your pictures, the bigger is the chance that one of them is needed by someone.

    Disappearing keywords on sold items

    yes, same here. It also seems to be a bit random, if they are shown or not... sometimes they do not show and after refreshing the site they do - and vice versa... I find the keywords very interesting as well - although it is quite rare for me that they are shown with a picture. It would be nice if it works again soon πŸ™‚

    Yes, indeed, the stats are all handmade. Whenever I get a download, I copy the link to the picture and the location to an excel table. When I find the picture beeing used somewhere, I copy that link, too and add it. It looks like this: "alt. location" is filled in when there are shown two or more different locations for one picuture, which sometimes happens. When there is a mark on the map but no written location, I add to "supposed location" what I can see - e. g. when the spot is in the center of the shape of the United States, then I add "USA" there. It is a kind of "sports" - others call it "map addiction" πŸ˜‰

    It's exactly one year ago that I started uploading photos to Shutterstock. So, I think it might be interesting to share a short review: In the last 365 days... ... 3341 pictures have been approved ... 527 pictures have been sold to 69 different countries for altogether 318,59 $. The top 5 countries are - Germany (87) - USA (59) - UK (39) - India (38) - UAE (22) Next to this I was able to increase my skills in viewing and preparing pictures - and added a lot of formerly "unknown" English words to my vocabulary πŸ™‚ Thanks to everybody here for your great advice and help each time I had a question πŸ™‚ So... I am happy to start in my second year on this platform πŸ™‚
