  1. total downloads per photo

    Hi, I like to see in my portfolio which photos have been downloaded and how often that photo was downloaded. Now I can see the top performers. I can also see how many downloads there are on a certain day, but is there a way to see which photos have been downloaded no matter if it was through subscription, on demand, enhanced or single or other?
  2. March 2018 - BME

    This month is the BME for me. I will make more than $300 for the first time. The number of DLs is usual. What made the month for me was the single largest sale on SS as of yet [SODs outpace everything else for the first time as a result] and two video cart sales. Thank you buyers, thank you SS. Much success to my fellow contributors!
  3. Zero Sales in Feb20181

    Has anyone else experienced a major drop in sales this month ( Feb 2018) with just one more day to go I havent made any sales at all. I do not have lots of sale, but have regular sales each month and have not had a zero month since Dec 2016.
  4. Customer Question

    Hi, I always wonder how can customers know if an image is downloaded before or how many downloads of a prefered image? Also, I ask a question here from almost a month and there was a member asked me with the number of my photos levels (for example the dog image is in first 20,00 photo which can be showed to a customer and so on). Thank you

  7. According to my Earning Summary page, so far I have no downloads today. It is just past 2:00 p.m. There must be something wrong because I know I have had downloads today by looking at the Latest Downloads page. Does anyone else have this problem?

  9. SOD's

    Hi folks, I have now joined the SOD's club, just sold my first one. I didn't realise what a difference it makes to the earnings table. Very happy
  11. Sad Sad Sales

    It just continues to drop -- not just the income but total downloads are now less than half of what they have been. Very disappointing but SS still far outsells any of my other outlets. How was your November? Any bright projections?
  12. My problem is that i have 0 downloads with 66 images in one month. I mean I know i have to upload hundreds of pictures with HCV to make some money and I also know that landscapes dont sell anymore....but 0? In one month? I have a lot of landscape,travel and a few product photography. What do you think I am doing wrong? Title,keywords,picture itself? Thanks a lot!
  13. I am a new contributor in shutterstock. So can you give some of your experience about improving my earnings? Thank you
  14. Thanks August 2017

    I'm happy with August sales and "Eid Adha" downloads,Thanks SS Really Eid Mubarak
  15. Download Cap

    Hi fellow contributors, Many of you maybe has been affected of the new "algorithm" but for me it seems like it´s stopping downloads at a certain point lets say x downloads/day +/- 2 dls, and thats constant, if that is smart and good use of tech to turn of contributors when they come above a certain dl number I wonder how it will be soon... (that algoritm I could almost do by myself, maybe not called algorithm, just mathematics) Any thoughts, or I'm the only one missing the sales they said they should do with the new great schema...?
  16. SHOW your latest download

    The old thread didn't work, so I create new one
  17. Strange - I've had 3 new downloads from Switzerland - but they aren' yet showing in my daily earnings summary - not an unusual occurrence , as can take a while - however, in my IPhone App - they also aren't showing which is very unusual as normally they will show there near enough straight away - I know they'll appear eventually, but strange there is such a big lapse - I first noticed them at least 45 mins ago - and still not showing. Anyone else had new downloads that aren't yet showing - but should be ? Just curious!
  18. Very bad July (2017)

    Hi everyone, I don't know why but this month is terrible for me in the aspect of earnings. Now it's about half of the earnings I have as usual. Does Shutterstock have a trouble or is it my misfortune only? What about your july month? Thanks.
  19. I reached 600 downloads!

    I've got over 1,800 images.
  20. Week 16: My Sales...

    ...Are down!!! I have only 1 download this week Last week I got 7 downloads which was awesome... So I want to send message to the world: Download me! How are you doing this week?
  21. Hi, I'm new in Shutterstock. I have uploaded 111 photos, but sold only five times. I get on average one download a week. Is there something wrong with my photos, titles or keywords? I shoot a lot of nature close-ups and macros that don't have a very specific content, for example just some random leaves, branches or reeds with beautiful sunlight or moody foggy weather. Could it be that these kinds of photos aren't very commercial or that people can't find them from the mass? It annoys me that I spend so, so many hours editing and keywording my photos without getting any reward. Anna
  22. I made 100 sales in 51 days. am i going slow ?? i uploaded 300 photos first. and 100 more in 51 days....
  23. So I am pretty new to Shutterstock and Photography in general. I made a account about half a year ago, and have added some pictures over the last few months. Now it has been a month, and I am getting not a single view, follow, or sale. I know my stock might not be the best ones, but there are a few really great images that I feel should be selling quite well. I normally add roughly 10-30 keywords per image, and try to add different keywords and titles for all my images. (Should I use less keywords? What is an ideal number? I have promoted my images and profile across many platforms from my own website to nearly all social medias. (Still not a single profile view.... Event though I know some have viewed my profile...) Am I doing something wrong here? Is my account "blacklisted" or "not public" or something similar? Please help me, I am really trying to make this happen, and plan to add much much more and better quality images, but right now I feel discouraged, as absolutely nothing is happening... PLEASE ANY ONE IF YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE PLEASE TELL ME! SEE MY PROFILE HERE..... MY PROFILE ( Thank you!
  24. Curious what's the average downloads ppl get here... I'm averaging 100 downloads a month and I have over 600 pictures up. Not a big earning considering the time it took on all the pictures lol.. Also curious about the following. I have no followings yet... Do others have big following? and does it affect much the earning?
  25. hello, i have noticed that latest downloads are shown on map. sometimes in area of south america, europe, africa and so on. does it mean files have been downloaded in that region or it has nothing to do with it ? thank you for any reply
