  2. Hi everyone. I'm new here. I want to add a white background to my previous content. What should I do? Thank you in advance.
  3. Hello Everyone, As we continue upgrading and stabilizing the technology that powers Shutterstock, we will soon be making changes to the Approval Status pages. As a result, we are at this time removing the ability to edit content that is Pending Review. This change will enable us to stabilize and secure the content review pipeline and ensure a more efficient file transfer process. You can still edit your content after the image has been approved by visiting the Approved Status pages. We thank you for your understanding and continued contributions to our marketplace! Alex
  4. Why there is not the possibility to choose the newest images from an contributor just the fake popular or what you call it now, must be a very basic and very interesting thing to see for a buyer what a specific creator has published lately...or I am wrong? At least the possibility...
  5. Shutterstock publishes monthly content guidelines that are likely to be requested in the near future. But it also means that competition for this content will increase. On the other hand, if your interests do not include follow of the best guidelines, but simply You wish to capture those photo moments that seem attractive, the content which buys the most from You can differ. In my experience there are two types of captures: in one case they buy something that is beautiful and refined, but in other cases, they buy something that is close to our daily life - sometimes it is not beautiful and not refined, but it just happens in life. But in any case, false artificialness does not promote sales.

  12. Hello everyone! I'm currently trying to submit some new footage that I believe is perfect for stock sales. The content has a crisp, clear image, and is in 4K quality. However, when I try to upload the clip, it gets rejected for "Noise / Artifacts / Pixelation -- Clip contains excessive noise, compression artifacts, and pixelation " . But like I said, on my end the video is perfectly clear and crisp. There's no detectable noise, artifacts, or pixelation in the video, which leads me to believe that somehow my videos are getting compressed in a strange way when I upload the file. So what precautions can I take when rendering out the video file, and uploading the content? Currently I'm splicing the clips in premiere pro, and I render the clips in H.264 mp4 (matching the native quality and fps as the original clip), and then I use FileZilla for ftp upload. Is there a better format to be rendering my clips in to avoid strange compression post upload? I seriously have no clue as to why my clips would appear noisy or distorted post upload. Thanks for the help!
  13. Hello, My vector has long been not in the review, why in the pending approval menu on the dashboard looks 0 when in the batches menu (status of batches upload) there are 32 pending files? i hope you can help me thanks
  14. My previously uploaded (and not submitted) images are missing from the new submit page. But they are visible in mobile view. Is it not possible to submit previously added content from the new form? I have added pictures from the new upload form and my mobile device.
  15. Hello guys, does anybody knows why the famous android figurine is not suitable as editorial content, i submitted but but rejected? i see him in dozens of editorial online publications in varied poses and settings. Are stock sites websites prohibited to sell as editorial, but magazines, online publications and news media authorized? thanks
  16. hello, I got written permission to photograph an event. The responsible persons for the event knew i was going to submit the photos to microstock websites. Recently a visitor of that event discovered her photo on shutterstock. Asked for the photos to be removed and asked for money. i said to her i got written permission to photograph and sell the images as editorial to microstock websites. What is the best answer to give when something like this happens ? Do i have to remove the photos if she wants? If the organizers of the event give in to her requests and then ask me to remove the photos, what can i do? Do i have to give her any money of the sales? Note: one reason for removing the photo could be that it causes ridicule to her, like: "i think i'm fat and ugly on the photo" - Is this considered a valid reason? thanks
  17. hello guys, Can every photo be sold as editorial? Examples: - the photo of my dog - the photo of a tree - the photo of my pencils - the photo of the coca-cola brand - the photo of the face of a homeless person (i ask for permission to take the photo, but don't say it's going to be sold) - the photo of the homeless but showing the street or buildings (don't asked for permission, it's from relatively far away) - the photo of a kid playing in the park with a dangerous dog (i ask for permission to parents / i don't ask for permission) - the photo of a kid playing in the park (i ask for permission to parents / i don't ask for permission) - the photo i took with my cellphone/compact camera inside the mall, where there are no signs of photography being prohibited - the photo of a naked woman running during a soccer game - the photo of a artwork but includes some nearby elements, like a person watching, a vase with a big flower next to it. - the photo of police officers eating a big burger on the street, or giving directions to the traffic - the photo of only the faces of casual visitors of an event, that are not in costume, or participating on the activities of the event. - the photo of casual visitors of an event, that include some elements that show that they are indeed visiting an event. Can you say for each one and give your opinions. I want to know this because i want to understand if anything can be sold as editorial, i don't want to know if it has potential to be sold. thanks
  18. I am very new here and need to put my images into sets. I am trying to think of how to do that and what makes sense and helps buyers find what they need. For instance, I have beach pictures from Mexico, Australia, and the east and west coasts of the U.S. Would buyers find those better under "Beaches" or in sets for each location? The same with boats, children, etc. What works best for you? I now have 125 images and I need to get organized, I think. Thanks for any advice...
  19. Hello fellow microstockers, I have a small issue and would love some input from some more experienced members or better yet, official Shutterstock employee. Last week, I traveled to northern Romania (Maramures County) to attend the wedding of a friend. Near the location where the wedding took place one can find the "Merry Cemetary" of the village of Sapanta. So I took this opportunity to capture some editorial images of the famous wooden, blue crosses. After uploading the batch, they all got rejected for this reason: Non-Licensable Content -- Due to legal compliance restrictions, we cannot license this content in our collection. But if you do a search using the keyword sapanta, you will find dozens of editorial images from the cemetery that are very similar to my pictures. So where is the problem? I don't understand. Attached is one photo as an example. Thank you! Emil
  20. Just recently I've uploaded a photo of a dog shaking off water, but today I've made even better photo of that content type. I know we're not allowed to upload similar content. So, do I delete the previous photo and upload another one? thanks for you help
  21. I have been experiencing very slow upload speeds for as long as I have been contributing. I love Shutterstock, but the slow upload speed is really annoying and time consuming. For example, I get between 200 and 300 kbs on average, wich equals to seriously long upload time for 4K videos on other sites I average between 7-12 Mbit per sec, wich equals to blazing fast uploads. Does anyone have the same issue? and possibly a fix?
  22. Hello everyone, Every time, after submitting content to SS. When it gets approve or rejected, I receive 4 or 5 emails "Status of your recently submitted images" with the same content showing approved or rejected items. Is it a bug or is it happening only to me? Thank you in advance
  23. On Shutter some ugly algorithm for issuing the search results, gives some shit, hundreds of similars, they can not be sorted out, filters and switches are ineffective, there were some normal pictures somewhere, but it's not really possible to get to them. To me, as the buyer would be disgusted in this shit digging, I would go register on another site with normal search and content.
  24. Most of us began submitting to Micro stock agencies to make money, but I wonder, do you submit anything that you think might be accepted (and hope it sells) or do you limit your submissions to those images or videos that you really like or should I say, "you are proud of"? Given current payout schedules and their continual reduction by Shutterstock and the other agencies, is uploading just the "good stuff" justified or even wise? Maybe it's my age 68), upbringing or misplaced pride in my portfolio but unless I really like a photo it stays on my hard drive, you'll never see it online. I currently only upload photos and my average download price is pretty high (.82+) which may be in part due to my upload standards but I wonder. . . WHAT DO OTHER CONTRIBUTORS,THINK AND DO? Do you take pride in your portfolio, is that even a factor or is money the only real driving force in what you upload?
