  1. I am submitting an image of a bridge called "Cedar Ford Covered Bridge." It is being rejected for copyright violation in the description/keywords. I assume it is because of the word "ford," which in this context is river crossing, not an auto maker. So either a bot is automatically kicking it out, or a reviewer doesn't understand what fording a river means. Any suggestions? Yes, I know I can just leave "ford" out of it, so no need to suggest that. Thanks. I would love to keep it in since that is, in fact, the covered bridge's actual name.
  2. Hello to the whole shutterstock community I am new here and I appreciate the functionality of the site ! My name is Anthony and I live in the South of France, I am passionate about the sea and the landscapes of nature. I find it soothing and comforting I would like to have your opinion on my small collection and receive your advice and criticism to progress I love the photo, but I am a self-taught and I do not know how to go about presenting the photos. For example, I don't know if my descriptions are relevant, if the tags are interesting or not ... What do you think of my photos ? Do you think I have a place among you ? Thank you in advance !!
  3. Hi. This does not affect the operation of the site or upload photos, just incomprehensible inscription. I noticed this about a week ago. 1. Upload photos 2. Select photos with different descriptions 3. In the field "Multiple description" - will be "[object Object]" Same thing with location field.
  4. Dear guys, Glad to come to this website. I registered this at the end of Dec.2018. Now have 20 downloads, hope and welcome you to give me some advise to sell more, thanks Besides, please help to check if my title description is appropriate. I always input a very long title with many words. Is that correct? I found other contributors have short tile, but some others said it should be as detailed as possible. Can the website search photos through title words? If I put a word in title but not in keywords pool, can this photo still be searched by this word? For keywords, should I put singular or plural? For example, if many apples in photo, should I put both apples and apple in keywords? Thank you and hope we all have a better selling.
  5. I would like to avoid entering a Description and Keywords before submitting again. Maybe this is a website design feature, not a flaw. As a first-time Shutterstock Contributor, the learning curve is steep when finding inadequate and incorrect online Help documentation, instances of terminology ambiguity, and pages that are casually mentioned but not titled with the same term. My first submission was "not approved" (which apparently is NOT the same meaning as "Rejected"). I have corrected the video file and used ftp to upload. Eventually the file appeared as an item in the "Content Editor" that is often referred to in documentation, but is not actually titled as "Content Editor" on the page. OK, so I'm ranting a bit. So... am I required to re-enter my previously-used Description (no copying was possible from the last submission...), and re-search and enter the previously-used Keywords before pressing the red Submit button?
  6. Dear Shutterstock people, I've been trying to upload my media (specifically, footage), already keyworded in Adobe Bridge, but the keywords and descriptions are ignored by the new "To Submit" page. I am filling the IPTC fields, IPTC_Description and IPTC_Keywords, which in Bridge also fill the standard (base) keywords and description fields in the file info. Any idea why this is going on? For the staff, I now have one test file, uploaded and ready to submit, that contains metadata but which do not appear in the "To Submit" page, meaning I'd have to redo the work. Help very much appreciated! Thanks, Elio
  7. Where have all the titles to images gone? I thought they used to be uploaded in still images but when looking through my and others portfolios I don't see any titles, only descriptions. Did Shutterstock do away with all the titles? I take a lot of time to use up the 200 characters available which is a combination of title and description. But after I upload I only see the characters my descriptions counted. Why is Shutterstock deleting or not uploading the titles I invested so much time in? I use photoshop elements to put my metadata in file Info. Some sites separate out titles from description, others do not. How do I make it so all my titles are used? Am I going to have to just cut and paste my titles in before beginning of description in Shutterstock in order to use all my 200 characters? Or are the titles being used somehow just without anyone seeing them? If I put title in Title field and Title at start of description in meta data Info before uploading to get title in 200 characters allowed, I will most likely be deleting it from a lot of other sites or doing a lot of cutting and pasting. Any thoughts on how to solve this? Or insight into Shutterstocks thoughts on Titles? Thanks
  8. I have multiple images which looks almost same to each other. So can I give the description of two or more than two photos same?
  9. Dear SS, Maybe this is no new revelation, but on the photo image edit page you can enter up to 200 characters for the Description, but as a customer, when you mouse over an image and the Description is displayed, it displays only the first 80 characters. Thank you. Brian
  10. I uploaded the image of traditional Passover plate with some Hebrew words on it (like "Pesah" - Passover). The image was rejected on reason: "Translation Required -- An English translation is required for any non-English text in the image. Translations must be entered in the title field." Sorry, I really don't understand what is wrong with my upload. I saw enough similar images on Shutterstock.
  11. Hallo! I'm trying to upload my very first video and it seems that no metadata survives after the FTP upload. Am I doing something the wrong way? Adobe Bridge was used to keyword, add title, captions and so on to the MOV file. When the file appeared in the "not yet submitted" queue I went to submit it and all of my metadata disappeared so I had to copy/paste them from the files to the indexing section. I also noticed that in the "Approval Status: videos" > approved footage clips, I can find the approved clip, but if I click for details I see "Released: N" but I know that clip was model-released. Is there something I have to know? :-)
  12. Hi, I've published several hundred photos in Shutterstock but recently I don't why portraits what I've made where not approved. I've got following information: "Unacceptable Editorial Caption -- Editorial captions must describe the subject matter (who, what, when) and be in English. Editorial caption cannot contain special characters or repeat word/phrases in excess' For first photo my caption was: "NORTH OF LAOS - AUGUST, 2018 : Woman from the Akha tribe with traditional headgear standing outside house in mountains in the north of Laos ." and for the second: NORTH OF LAOS - AUGUST, 2018 : Children from the Akha tribe posing for a photo in mountains of North of Laos. What is wrong with these captions, any idea ? Michal Szymanski
  13. Good afternoon, As a newbie contributor I am hoping for some guidance from the forum...I keep getting the following rejection: Unacceptable Editorial Caption -- Editorial captions must describe the subject matter (who, what, where, when) and must be in English. Editorial captions cannot contain special characters or repeat words/phrases in excess. I have submitted the same series of images and then tested with just one image several times and still get rejected. I have rejigged the descriptions several times but no luck. I would greatly appreciate any hints.

  14. Dear Forum Hi, can someone clarify the reason this editorial image was rejected. The reason given was for not entering the correct 'Editorial Caption' (who, what, where, when). The caption with the image reads "The cruise ship Balmoral passes through the Menai Straits, Wales, UK, 16th July 2017." Regards Richard.
  15. I was browsing a few subjects tonight and ran across something like this in a description, "more with keyword dayone" (not the exact quote). I didn't think this was allowed in the description or I would have been doing it since day one LOL. Thanks!
  16. After SS updated the uploading interphase, I cannot update the keywords and/or descriptions of old still images. In the past, I was able to do this. Right now, I can still do it IF the image is a video clip BUT I cannot do it if the image is a still image ( I guess it is a side effect of the change) I wrote Support and they simply said: After the image is approved you cannot change keywords. Is this new? As I said: I used to do it and I still can in the video section. I am not satisfied with the answer. Is anyone else having this problem? Thanks
  17. Hey, sorry if this has been addressed before, but I didn't see it in a quick search. While using the web upload, I'm taken to content editor to add descriptions and keywords. I add information in for my first image, which has a checkmark at the left, then check the second image and start adding a description, but the description in the first image starts updating with the description from the first. i.e. If my first image is a greek flag, and my second image is a fishing boat, once I start typing in 'fishing boat' on the second image, the description of the first image changes from 'greek flag' to 'fishing boat'. Let me know if this is a known issue or if I'm misunderstanding what the checkboxes are for. In the mean time I can keep uploading them individually. Thanks!
  18. I have just had a set of 13 editorial images rejected because the descriptions of some didn't follow the who, what, where, when, requirement. That in itself is rather odd because I followed a Shutterstock example to the letter and triple checked to make sure everything was covered and in the required sequence. I submit editorial images to other stock agencies and have never had a problem. However, that's bye the bye. What puzzled me most was the statement 'description not in English'...... I am English. I was born in England and have lived only in England. My native tongue is English. I do not read or write in any other language. What's going on there? The images are of a protest march in London about two years ago. The march featured Syrians protesting against the bombing of Syria. Perhaps Shutterstock either doesn't recognise the word Syria or somebody is on the other side and doesn't want to see such images. Has anyone else come across this or a similar problem? (Hopefully this can be read. It is in English. I am hoping Shutterstock will recognise it as English - if there are difficulties with recognising this as English then Google translate should be able to assist)
  19. Hi All, I use Photoshop CC 2017's file info for metadata inputs very often. I have a very annoying problem: apostrophes in metadata description (and title) became strange characters after uploading. Here are two screenshots about it. 1. In the PS, the apostrophe is OK. The next is from shutterstock.com after upload in the batch editing window. The apostrophe changed to an ugly character. What should I do? Please help because it's a serious problem, e.g. I can't use possessive in sentences. (I use non-english Photoshop CC 2017 in Hungarian language) Thank you for helping me! Andras ps: I asked it on adobe forums also but I was redirected here with the problem. https://forums.adobe.com/message/9513900#9513900
  20. After submission, I want to change the image's description. It has been approved and is live. Do I have to resubmit or can I simply just suggest a new description?
  21. an image where "Ice skaters are ice skating with ice skates on an ice skating rink" without spamming?
  22. Is it allowed to reference an image by its ID in the description of another image eg:"car2" is a replica of "car1"(IDxxxxxx)? Both images are in the same portfolio.
  23. Can anyone give me some advice on how to attach keywords and description to a video file (like you can with jpegs) so I don't have to type it into each site I upload it too. Thanks Tony
  24. Dear Reader, I just started a profile a few days ago and posted for the second time my first 10 photographs. On the first submission, none of the photographs were accepted, due to english vocabulary, problems with the keywords and the titles. Here are my questions: 1. Showing the archeological site Ahu Tongariki on Easter Island, and have the keyword Ahu Tongariki rejected, what do i do? I used the keyword suggestion option... Other examples are photographs from the cities "Oostende", "Guanajuato"... Also all names that were rejected. 2. In the Description/Title/Caption module, what does one have to write? If i show a photograph of Bruges at night... Should i just write "Bruges at night"? Or write something like "A view of Bruges at night/Bruges at night/Bruges at night"? Thank you for your reply in advance, Sébastien
