  4. Some of my photo has been accepted. I want to upload them another site. what say shutterstock policy
  5. Hello folks! I've referred approximately 65 new contributors to Shutterstock over a six month period through my little blog jamoimages.com. What I've noticed is that most of them only signs up, but never really go any further or only uploads few images. In fact, from over 65 people only one have kept uploading photos regularly. This is of course very bad for me because I lose all those $0.04/DL's which would make me rich in no time if everybody would keep uploading new photos 🤔😉 Now, I know (from experience) that it IS frustrating to upload images/videos without certainty of income, however, uploading new photos regularly, even without them selling right away, will eventually pay off. Sometimes it may take months before any sales. So I've made a blog post couple of months back to help new contributors make sense of this mess and hopefully succeeding in their journey (and earn me more $0.04's 😉). You can find it here: https://jamoimages.com/stock-photography-tips/ Best of Luck for you all and may the stock force be with you in 2020! Oh.. and if you're wondering, below is how much I've earned with those referrals so far. HOORAY! Now I can get a cup of coffee from the cheapest cafe in my town 🤣

  7. Hi, I am a newbie here and have uploaded almost 100 photos. I am wondering why Shutterstock reduces the quality of my photos by reducing the size. For example, I submitted a photo that was 6000 MP x 4000 MP (12.9 MB) - so under the max size limits - and when I open it on the "submit content" page and select "see large preview", the image that is displayed was much smaller: the title showed "medium" and 1000 x 667 MP. Another image that I submitted at 6000 x 4000 (Sunset in Dubrovnik, Croatia with Fortress Silhouette) has been approved and the size is now only 1500 x 1101 (searched Google for the image). It has been reduced to a quarter of its original size. Does Shutterstock always do this, or is there a setting I should change? Zooming into see the details shows quite a degradation in quality between what I submitted and what is on the site, and I imagine that a buyer would like a photo to be as crisp as possible. Appreciate your help! Thanks!
  8. Hey Guys Im trying to submit some pictures with the name of the place that it was taken but shutterstock do not allow that because it regonize it as keyword error! The names are in English, like what is the name in English of Ancona city in Italy ? Its just Ancona and thats an error for shutterstock. Is there a method to overcome that despite using their smartphone app because that is a slow method and take time ?
  9. I have an idea, I hope everyone's attention, we ask the site management to develop a new property، Counter Views for contribute in the pictures.
  10. Hey everyone! In case anyone is interested, I'm sharing the details of my stock photo/video journey on my blog, including monthly income reports. I'm going to continue in the next few months and hope it will serve as extra motivation to keep uploading as I track the progress. Any one else doing this where I can follow along too? I love seeing how others are doing and mutually benefitting from the tips we can share with each other along the way. Thanks for all the feedback and help along the way.
  11. Hi, When submitting photos to shutterstock taken on my photos they come out between 4.5mb and 7.5mb. When enhancing a photo on my phone they drop to 4.0 to 5.5mb depending on original size. Although the photo will look better should I loose mb's, enhancing them (colour, pop, light or auto), or should I just leave the photo alone and keep the bigger say 7.0mb for instance. Thanks Andy

  14. I like to play with different photo programs. Sometimes after deep transformation image looks better than original. It would be very good if you explain to me some Legal aspects. As a Artist I can do everything in post processing. And how about publishing? For example. I transform original image...silver filter and red color. Us a result interior look better and to far from original. By the way original image painted in gold. You know Emperors get crazy about yellow metal.
  15. Hi, How do I upload my CSV batch file? I'm new here, uploaded 250 photos and searching where to submit my CSV batch file. It takes a long time to make the CSV file, so I don't want to copy paste to each one as possible. Can anybody give instruction and if possible with screenshots? Thanks!
  16. Question on sales ratio to quantity in image portfolio - understanding that subject and quality are required as well as key-wording. That said, is there some trend-line math for an expected ratio of sales quantity (not money) to the quantity of images available (portfolio, all sets)? For example, on SS I have 239 images and sold 51 times (some repeats). On iStock/Getty, I have fewer images but selling sooner. My intention is to upload selected images to reach 1500-2000 total on SS. Update: heard interesting insight on regular corp sales funnel measurement - generally need a 10:1 ratio of opportunity to sell:actual sale. Since most opportunities wont close, a 10:1 sales funnel ratio is needed in order to do well. Not sure this helps, but trying to figure out (all things being equal "sort of") if $100/month in sales at .25 each (or selectively more, but not typically on SS) means selling 400 images/month, then does one need several thousand images available for sale (just mathematically, realizing that some subjects move better than others, etc.). Bottom line: Is this stock selling opportunity on SS equal to hobby money or is there some method to achieve reliable income streams? Thanks
  17. Shooting RAW vs JPEG is a question that every photographer faces at some point. There are many articles out there that cover the topic from the basics of size and quality, to all of the advanced technical details regarding color bits per channel, compression, firmware DCT processing, etc. For me i go with RAW, what about you ?
  18. Hello, Can somebody, please, clarify the current situation with photos of currency? Few of my photos of money have been rejected as Non-Licensable Content, which does include currency as well, but I see literally tons of photos of different currencies in SS without any problems. Moreover, on the same day very similar photo of currency was approved, other was rejected (pic below). So I am quite confused which rule does apply these cases. Thanks in advance for any explanation

  20. My photo of Berlin TV tower and St. Mary's church was rejected, although there are many pictures of these buildings already on ShutterStock and other stock photography agencies, for commercial use. It's unlikely that all of them have property releases, but if so, how do I obtain one? The reason for rejection: "Intellectual Property: Image potentially infringes on another person's intellectual property rights (e.g., image contains artwork, writing, sheet music, or objects protected by copyright)."
  21. Доброе время суток всем! Мне хотелось бы узнать мнение тех, кто живет здесь о моем портфолио. Я новичок - 2 года на СС. Почти нет продаж, но 700 снимков.

  23. I generally photographed not so long ago and was always afraid to work with models. This is because, the model needs to be relaxed, so that she would be comfortable with you and she followed your instructions. In this case, emotions will be sincere, and she herself will give ideas for good photos. I want to share with you my experience and options for processing such photos. Автор: AlexRudenko I had some questions. On how many it is effective to use constantly one model. I do not think it's problematic to change the images. Thanks to this, you can also change the style of the photo, if your photoapart with technical and cancer tests allows it. Автор: AlexRudenko Also interested in the processing of portraits and photos of mica. How to handle photo processing? Or is it still better to leave a live sub-correcting the light and shadow? Автор: AlexRudenko I'm waiting for advice from real professionals. For me, the main thing is to work constantly and not to let the camera go, try to constantly improve your skills and strive for excellence. All the successes and good photos!
