  1. As there has been way too much upset here lately, thought I'd share this. I'm sure we could all use a good laugh.
  2. Thanks, Linda. I've been thinking about using Stocksubmitter for that purpose, at least to the extent of the 30 free pics a month. But so far, have not been able to get past the clunky interface of the software.
  3. Thank you Wilm for these numbers. They confirmed my gut feeling. And welcome back, btw. I couldn't believe they banned you, that was ridiculous.
  4. What you get is a percentage of whatever the customer paid for the image, including any sales and discounts SS offered the buyer. Depending on what level you are at, it ranges from 15% to 40%. Your level is determined by how many images you have sold in the current year, and it resets in January.
  5. I would like to hear from people who have the same number of images both here as well as DT / DP. How do sales stack up? I can't tell, because my port at DT is tiny, so of course I'm not making any money. But it seems that my latest uploads have gone largely unnoticed, and I'm wondering if it's worth the effort to throw more assets at it.
  6. It actually doesn't even matter. Unlimited viewership for TV is included in standard license now, the only limiting factor is the production budget.
  7. It seems that Shutterstock changed the license terms - I thought that TV use required an enhanced license, but just looked it up, and evidently this is not the case. Standard license now covers unlimited web use (including online publications) and unlimited TV viewership. No wonder ELs have become so rare - as publications move from physical print copies into an online format, they no longer need anything bigger than the standard license.
  8. Yes, California. Cases are going through the roof in the South and West.
  9. Post pandemic?? Over here, things are far from over, and are in fact getting worse again.
  10. Comparing June to May or any other previous month is not going to give you the real answer. But some of us actually compared June 2020 to what June 2020 would have been like under the old earnings structure. My loss was 29.3% I am keeping my port up to see how things evolve from here, but have lost incentive to create new content.
  11. Yup, same thing has happened to me last week. The rejections lately are completely random and out of control, almost as if the reviewers are boycotting the place too. Although I'm frankly surprised the pics were not rejected for "similar".
  12. I don't know why I even bothered uploading anything. This is absolute bullshit anymore. Shutterstock, you need to train / oversee those reviewers. They are wasting our time in a most egregious way, and people will stop trying to add new content. @Kate Shutterstock First submission, rejected for incorrect editorial caption: (and yes, "River Kern Beach" is the name of that place.) Second submission, now with the "previously submitted" box checked: Non-licensable content? Seriously??!
  13. This made me chuckle. Reminds me of Laurin! His comments too always hurt so much because they were dead-on true. And I'm saying this as someone who knows that only my own laziness is keeping me from having a 8,000 video port.
