  1. Hello guys, I just wanna share my short experience as footage contributor in Shutterstock, and asking you a suggestion for future, maybe could help also some new "recruits". I have just started during half of july, uploading footages of my usual topics (nature, vegetables, food, growing food, organic food and sustainability). It seems market is not really interesting in it. I sold just 1 clip for 7 dollars (and it was a clip not of my topic: an istitutional building) on a total of 200 clips uploaded, some 4K, some slowmo, timelapse, drone footage. So, for now the balance is not so good, just considering the time spent uploading clips. At this point, I wonder if I should go on or stop. Do you think I'm doing something wrong? Footage are not interesting at all? Or I need to be patient and going on uploading? Thanks everyone for support, suggestions and idea 😎 p.s. don't tell anybody, but I have uploaded same clips also on AS, IS, Pond5... zero money for now 😁 Thanks, and take care My portfolio
  2. Hi! I’m new here and have only uploaded sets of vectors. I’m thinking of uploading some vector art scenarios but I’m kind of hesitant because I’m afraid clients would reuse parts of it for other purpose. To be clear, for example I’d like to upload a community scene wherein it includes houses in a rows. How do I make sure that the client wouldn’t reuse one of the houses in another project? Or they’re completely allowed to reuse parts of it since they’ve paid for it? A little help will do cause I’m a bit confused in this area. Thank you! Stay safe.
  3. My humble question is, I've some really professionally worthfull content on my part and want to sell it on stock sites but it is making me uneasy to think about how much I could get through such photo and videos sell though I heard this site (Shutterstock) pays lot than others stock sites, but is it really great decision to sell it for pennies? My Photo Examples I really want you go check my suggested images and give your unbiased review. Below is the link for some of my example images...
  4. Just reached 8K images today morning! Wow! Thanks to SS and all of you for your support from time to time. Regards, Rudra
  5. Hi! So, I have a vector that keeps being rejected. A similar one, with one difference was accepted. The rejections keep being "Linked Images / Bitmaps / Raster Effects: Vectors containing linked images, bitmaps, and/or raster effects are not acceptable." I use Inkscape and when to View-> Outlines to see what was going on because there aren't any images in my vector. There is a green line showing a clipping path that I created from different colored rectangles to get a different shape. Could that be an issue? Does SS not accept clipping sets?

  7. Hello, I received a profile as a business on the basis of a formal contract. I was given a Case Number from the Contributor service.

  10. To avoid contributors to review the content in Content Manager again, I would like to see the "Add to set" option before the content is sent for approval. I'm still waiting for it.. Also, I would like the geo option "location" to be active for footage too.
  11. What sort of images do you have that is almost sold multiple times a day and each and every time? I want to know because I have not such images and I am progressing very slowly.
  12. why is it on the contributor home page some photos either don't show up on the little latest download map, or a location is not given. Even better would be if you could see somewhere on the app where a photo was downloaded from. to me personally this is extremely interesting and one of the best features of the contributor page. just a fun feature
  13. After my uploaded images were approved, shutterstock asked for my address and when I submitted it, the page stuck and loading forever. Is this could effect my payment?

  16. Hello everybody, i am updating this map since i started contributing here. I guess if there would be a way to implement this into the Shutterstock contributor experience many of the contributors would love to see this. I find it very pleasing to see where in the world my photos have been bought. Cheers Martin
  17. Hello to all... Since yesterday I'm here from DECADE. Yes... - 10 years as a contributor, 7 years working full time on stock sites, visited and photographed 20 countries on 4 continents, with over 25K photos and some videos, with several hundred thousand downloads... In that time I lived in 2 countries, I've got 2 children... so I'm so happy to be here Best job ever!!! I hope that the next decade will be just as successful. Best Regards to all you guys and many successes in here as a contributor!
  18. @Administrator / @Anna Shutterstock I would have a suggestion: "Add to set" option is currently only available in the Catalog Manager. It would be more logical to have this possibility at the beginning when the description and keywords are added to the images and footages.
  19. Now the author (contributor) can't copy key words of the own image for own new semilars (It helps me to work faster with the key words). It have been so easy to do from buyer's side before. Why? Isn't my own image in my portfolio not my ownership? If you ( SS) want to fight with the thieves of key words please, enter author's password to log into the author's own portfolio images from customer side, so that he can free use his own keywords easy Thank's Best regards
  20. Hello! I am new user, i created today a contributor account, i uploaded some pictures of mine and im waiting for them to get verified. In the account settings section, i just saw " How can we license your work? " and everything under that by default is "yes" (image sales, footage sales, enhanced license, sensitive use). My question is: Can i use these photos that i submitted as a contributor, for example at my personal website or facebook or it is not permitted and shutterstock owns all the rights of these photos ? Thanks in advance!
  21. Hi friends. When uploading a vector, I get this error: "Your vector has an unexpanded pattern fill. Expand all the pattern fills and upload your file again." What must I do? I added some shapes as pattern. Must I remove them? or is there any way to pass this error?
