  1. How can this be correct when Adobe have put their Commission Rates up? Pond 5 charge way more than Shutterstock for videos. If this is correct were is the evidence, just saying it does not make it real.
  2. This email really doesn't give enough information, to fully understand what this actually means. I will reserve judgment until we get the full details.
  3. The Issues are:- If you have a complected illustration/design with the pasteboard having to be 4 MP then the files come out at way over 100 MB, if you then reduce the image within this size to under 100 MB, but keep a outline for the 4 MP then the image size is ridiculously small. 1. The upload time is crazy for 100 MB file, goodness knows what it will be in India or South America for a buyer downloading. 2. Pixel, perfect Icons are no longer Pixel Perfect. 3. The rasterisation process is inconsistent and produces a bad JPEG image. 4. Vector workflow is now disrupted, every illustration/design now needs to be upsized to the new sizing criteria. This takes time having to work out the final pasteboard size and resizing the file. Many illustrations/designs are now not able to uploaded. 5. Light and Transparency effects are virtually redundant, this is limiting creativity and saleability.
  4. Dear Shutterstock, Can we please have a update on whether you are going to continue with this extraordinary set of uploading criteria. Loads of my designs/illustrations will just not fit in to your criteria. Light and Transparency effects are virtually redundant, this is limiting creativity and saleability. If I make the pasteboard 4 MP then the files come out at way over 100 MB, if I reduce the image within this size to under 100 MB, but keep a outline for the 4 MP then the image size is ridiculously small. Your new upload system simply does not work, how can you continue to insist that we continue to work to these constraints. Plus the fact that uploading at 100 MB takes for ever, how are your Buyers going to go on with that, downloading vast .eps files that take forever. Can we please, please, have some clarification on whether you are going to continue to impose this regime on your Vector contributors. Someone in your Company needs to get their act together and answer all the questions that have been posted on this Forum, otherwise what is the point in having a Forum if no one answers these serious issues. As much as I and all your other Vector Contributors Love Shutterstock this is no way to treat us. Again, can somebody please come on this Forum and explain what is happening. Can you please help!
  5. Dear Shutterstock, I have been uploading Vectors for over ten years, my latest upload, will not be accepted by your system I am trying to upload a EPS vector illustration, and if I upload at 4MP, you system will not except it, if I upload at 100MB your system will not except it. Can you please help I really cannot understand why I cannot upload.
  6. I think that we all owe a Shutterstock a big 'Thank You' for actually listening to their contributors. Anna's post sounds like they are going to ditch this new process. Again Thank You Shutterstock.
  7. I cannot believe they are still going to implement this new system; 'revised timeline' is not a good idea, all the comments on this Forum say one thing, its is a unworkable set of criteria, this adds up to 1000's of years of experience, all saying one thing. The raster version of the file no matter what the software engine they use to produce it, will not be anywhere near as good as contributors producing their own image. The size thing is just completely bonkers. Who is the person who is responsible for this, because they need to be removed from their position of responsibility, as they have significantly failed to understand exactly what a .eps file is, how they work and how designers use them. I suspect it is someone who has never even clicked and opened a Vector file, they just sit behind a desk wearing a suit, looking at stats all day. If Shutterstock go down this route, then on their heads be it, the noise on this Forum is unequivocal, PLEASE SHUTTERSTOCK don't implement these new requirements.
  8. Please don't do this Shutterstock and this is the first time in over Ten years I have ever posted a comment.
