  1. Dear Shutterstock, How can you do this to us? The photographers who supply you with photos and videos. Reducing earnings with 75%! Without a clear notice. Yes, you told us that something would change but in a sneaky manner. Tell the truth that you are cutting your providers to the bone. Instead of $0,38 now just to $0,10. On a level 4. I wonder what the earnings will be on January 1st with level 1: $0,02? It's a disgrace! It's looting! It's theft. I always used to promote Shutterstock in all ways. To buy photos from or to contribute. Now I have told already to 3 people that Shutterstock is a bunch of crooks. And I will continue to do so. 21,560 downloads so far with almost 1,800 photos. I won't put new photos on your site anymore. I will look for different ways. When I have I will dismantle my portfolio on Shutterstock. Shame on you! Do you even care? Do you even read the messages?

  2. I have signed up few days ago and approved content today. But my earnings page shows '' Your account is currently in a 90 day waiting period. You will be eligible to receive payments''. So, anyone can explain to me understand what is this and more..? Thanks.
  3. 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. I want to know if this Case Number should be added to all files as the same number? Or will this figure change? How to perform this procedure so that the account is not blocked.
  4. I always like to bring new contributors to ShutterStock but am frustrated that I can not contact them via the ShutterStock platform to offer help, encouragement and support. I see it's just as much in ShutterStocks interest as mine as the better contributes do the better ShutterStock does and the more images and videos they have to offer. Does anyone agree? Richard
  5. Hi contributors, Today when I saw my earnings summary, I got shocked by seeing one image got downloaded for $ 0.17 only. As far as I know, minimum payout for per image download from SS is $ 0.25 and till now I had no issues with that. But as you can see below screenshots from my dashboard, I am really upset that the image got downloaded for even lower price than $0.25. When I searched on google for $ 0.17 per image download from shutterstock, I got surprised when one more person mentioned that his image got downloaded for $ 0.17 in below forum Also I found some links mentioning sites like getallstock.com selling stock photos for $ 0.17 from popular stocks sites like shutterstock and others. Check out the link below https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5190036.msg52654833#msg52654833 I am not sure about such sites if they are fake, pirates or what... Is this really fair for contributors like us who are putting more and more efforts to give best of our work on stock sites like Shutterstock? I am really upset having this kind of experience on SS and now I really feel like quitting from submitting my work after so many efforts I am putting behind my work. Please let me know if this is really a problem in Shutterstock or is this $0.17 price valid for per image download on Shutterstock Thanks
  6. 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.
  7. Hello guys, My name is chediel from Tanzania, I am the new member here in shutterstock, I need your ideas and advice on how to get my first sale and to get my work easily seen and downloaded. Thank you
  8. " Image review emails will be delivered once a day " In past few months we all had experience rejections with : FILE TRANSFER ERROR...... just 'couse SS won't fix upload. Now we have to wait 24 hours for them to tell us that their upload has bugs and hick ups. Great job SS, just great. If we consider last few changes in pricing, policy etc etc etc - conclusion is clear : It seems that they work against contributors. Looks like SS don't trying to increase sale, looks like they trying to decrease number of contributors. P.S. For how many hours today you didn't had single download, while that "once per day" notification started on main page ? Do you really think that they shutted down site for buyers ? Or they simply didn't show what of our images has been sold in that period of a day ? P.S.S. How much your portfolio is increased by your submitted WORK and how much your income dropped , in let's say .....last year ?
  9. I am a video contributor mainly to this Shutterstock network. I've seen that Video Sets have been asked about and suggested since 2014. So why in 2016 there arestill no Video Sets? I would like to Group my videos into sets, similar to the photo area and be able to make them public. Why the long wait for this easy add on? Please add this feature soon Shutterstock! I even tweeted you guys about this a few months ago. You replied great suggestion! So where are we on this? ALSO I would also like to see all my videos in the app so that I share them easily to social media and hopefully increase my sales. There is also a need for more analytics and insights tools for video too. Grateful for you soonest response. Rezza
  10. Hi contributors...there is a group on Facebook (name: STOCK VIDEO PROMOTION) has been created to promote stock videography. It is a "hub" between sellers and buyers. You can share and make known your creations. Feel free also to leave your comments, invite other videographers and share your knowledge. As well as advertising and web agencies, movie studios, publishers, can take a look at the creative works that are published and, why not, directly interact with the videographer. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1634887400112299 Good luck
