  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. With the new earning structure even if you reach 40% with the highest level on subscription plans you wont make more than 20 cents, this is ridiculous they made a pay cut of 60%. They sell a picture on subscription plans for 50 cents on average if the buyer use all his subscription. Dont just stay there and take it, all together we can do something, Opt out of sales https://www.shutterstock.com/contributorsupport/articles/kbat02/How-do-I-deactivatedelete-my-contributor-account?l=en_US&fs=RelatedArticle I just did it myself.
  4. Since 1 and half year i created this account but some how i dont get any single image buyer as i am doing something wrong or something else i have to do to generate income from Shutterstock. I got advice that if you take picture and submit to contribution shutterstock you will get paid for every pic which has been selected. Please guide me if some experts in this forum. I am traveller and fond of taking extra ordinary pics from my Iphone which worth of million dollars in coming year so i need support on my copyright pics if you or anyone who you know who can support me then Thanks in advance for your gentlemen gesture DharamNeeL https://www.shutterstock.com/g/DharamNeel?rid=230683507&utm_medium=email&utm_source=ctrbreferral-link
  5. Hi! It's my first post here. I've contributed about 50 images now and I'm excited to contribute more. I uploaded these 3 photos yesterday, but they were rejected for "Visible Trademark: Content contains visible brand names or logos." I've removed all the logos I could see. Am I missing out anything? Perhaps another set of eyes might catch something I'm missing. Many thanks!
  6. 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.
  7. hi I'm new and i need help.it's already been half a year from the moment I passed the SS exam, but for all this time I haven’t gotten a new sale.I live in war, so I take all the pictures on the meizu 6m phone. I wanted to buy equipment or move from the first sales (this war squeezes all the juices from me “Ukraine against Russia”), but there were no sales and I don’t know what to do. I ask you to help. Advice on how to improve my photos or portfolio
  8. 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
  9. 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...
  10. Uploaded almost 1500 pictures during last two weeks. One or two pictures were sold. New stuff not selling at all. Only old (or very old) ones. It looks like smth is broken and we are drowning in similars.
  11. You know why is it so? I'll tell you: top crapper: https://www.shutterstock.com/g/Kozlik?page=59&section=1&searchterm=christmas&measurement=px&sort=newest&safe=true&search_source=base_gallery&language=en&saveFiltersLink=true Personally i'd ban him right away and forever. pupil crapper: https://www.shutterstock.com/it/g/belchonock?page=3&section=1&sort=newest&search_source=base_gallery&language=it Because of these abomination-"contributors" things goes down every month, Two, maximum three similars should be allowed. I vote for two maximum.
  12. Hello, another newbie here looking for critique. I’d like to know if these shots are good, bad, ok? I understand 4 images aren’t much to judge on. Completely new to photography and appreciate any feedback I can get from much more experienced photographers. Thank you -shutterstock.com/g/Seth+Davis
  13. Hi i am farhan ashraf i uploading my designs more than one month regularly but not any response please give me any suggestion about my port.. Please tell me is my designs value able ??
  14. Hello! I am new to ShutterStock, just started uploading photos. Most of my best images would not load due to sizing errors, but hopefully I should get this sorted. Any tips on what theme of photographs are selling, still waiting on getting that 1st download, suggestions on what to focus on and any tips for a newbie? Not all my photographs have become available on my profile yet, have unloaded some images of my cats. Open to feedback on the little profile I have so far.
  15. 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
  16. I cannot upload certain EPS documents. For example, "hoodie mockup Black 1" has a required minimum of 4 megapixels (artboard = 2000px x 2000px), which amounts to a file of over 100 megabytes (118 megabytes, to be exact). I then reduced the size of the file "hoodie mockup Black 1B-01" (even though I knew it would be useless, I did it to make a point) to 3,6 megapixels (artboard = 1300px x 1300px). That ended up a file with less than 100 megabytes total (91,9 megabytes), which allowed me to surpass the first step. But, in the final step, the upload is denied, being less than the required 4 megapixels (please see photos attached). Another situation is that I want to upload a file with specific frame measures (A4, A5, A6, 5x6 in…) in the EPS file, which of course results in a small design within an artboard of 2000px x 2000px (please see photos attached). So, I would like to know how can I send such files? Furthermore, I would like to leave the suggestion that, although this new feature is good, reducing the time for uploading, as you can well verify, it is not totally efficient. I would like to suggest keeping this functionality, but with the possibility of, if a EPS and JPEG with the same name are uploaded simultaneously, the review program would give preference to the JPEG file for “preview”, generating an “alert” for the reviewer, to ensure correct matching previews. What I mean is, hold the current procedure, but insert the possibility of using the “old method” for uploading certain EPS files. Best, Pedro Alexandre Teixeira

  18. Hello, my first post on this forum! I have been building my portfolio of images slowly for the past year or so, though its still quite small. I have about 120 images and 8 sales. I want to improve and could do with some comments, any and all would be greatly appreciated! The niche I am going for is heritage industrial art, mostly old tools. I have plenty of subjects here due to my job working with steam engines.
  19. Hello, I've been following the forum chat for a couple of months and have just decided this morning to dive in a put myself out there for some honest feedback. There is a lot of great advice out already on this forum and I know I have a long way to go, I have already deleted some hideous photos I first put on Shutterstock in my eagerness to sell sell sell. So far I've made a princely some of $2! Now you may think I'm disappointed with that amount but I'm not and it's really encouraged me to improve my photography skills. I'm unsure if my lighting is wrong or right, how is my composition? Should I leave more space for text? Any advice will be very much appreciated. https://www.shutterstock.com/g/Penny+Compton

  22. I am new here, how can I get my first download?
  23. Often new people are asking how do you sell or what do you sell. I have written a couple post on understanding your customer and the market but his is how did I learn as a photographer over the past year. So I have officially been submitting for 16 months and I wanted to put out some thoughts on how I went through the journey to get to a level of consistent sales. First you should know where I started from. In high school I learned photography before there was digital phototography and I think this is an advantage. When a roll of film cost xx, you only had xx on the roll, the roll was a set ISO, you had to wait for film to developed and if you did it yourself (I only did B&W) it was a significant investment in each image in time and $. So you learned to compose the shot because you didnt want to have to do it again. So I have to say I probably started with and advantage. In my early 20s I stopped using my old Ricoh 35mm and went to snap shot film. In my early 30s I started using snapshot digital cameras and by my 40s phone cameras. But basically I stopped doing photography and I never really learned digital photography. Also during that time I was in the military and have since retired. A few years ago I got a Pentax K-r for a project as I was working on in marketing and I started dabbling more and more and filling up hard drives. I never came to stock photography because I heard I could get rich nor was it because I had a portfolio I could sell. Rather I had been buying stock photography for about 10 years in marketing and knew that no mater how many pictures were out there, when you are doing a very specific search you were alway settling...FYI there will always be a need to hire photographers and we still do at work from time to time and even take our own too. So I started stock and what did I learn...I had a lot to learn. Story...the pictures that sell the best either have the ability to tell a story of their own or are used to tell a story. Knowing who I am tells me what to shoot...I am never going to shoot models for magazines. What I understand is my travel every week for work and life in the midwest. So I know those stories well and those are the stories I tell. I am not a chemist so I cant tell a chemical story. A think a good amature in stock should have a portfolio that allows you to know who they are to some degree. Yes some are, or commercial images are in there but they really should know how to show what they are experts in Quality of photography...I learned that quality resides in first taking a good image...technical and composition. A good book I got to help with this is Stunning Digital Photography by Tony and Chelsea Northrop. In college terms its a good 100 to 200 level text book. it has great examples and exercises and covers a range of things. I really started to learn digitize photography which is not photography. Since you arent bound by ISO you can do a lot more. Also I learned about equipment. I carry three cameras most of the time. A Pentax, a snap shot pocket camera (24/7) that shoots 20 Mega pixel and my phone or ipad. You can get images that sell with any of them but nothing will beat the Pentax for quality if you have the time. That said a good snapshot is great for indoors, quick moments etc...also less obtrusive in some areas where people freak out if you point a lense at them. I have also learned to take more images but delete them down to one or two. Quality of post processing...alright 16 months ago I knew the graphics artist at work could take a photo and make it functional (this made photoshop intimidating) and I was relying on jpegs right out of the camera...pray there is no dust. I only process on an iPad Pro so i started with a program called pixelmater not bad and low cost. What it is best at is you can also do illustration in it to fix or remove things. It wasnt until last spring that I jumped to Lightroom...wow much better. For years I thought adobe software was very complex and for full timers... Nope... a few YouTube videos later and I was in the swimming pool with Lightroom and photoshop. You can get very complex but becoming a basic or intermediate use is a mater of days with spare time. Coding the photos—or uploading; I have worked with databasing so I have learned to call it coding them in or assigning their database tags. Key wording can be tedious but if it is a good image with a story I have an idea of what I will be doing with it when I took it so I have learned to build a process and one that works. I have gone back and redone some. Where you sell—Know that different services have different audiences....SS is my primary platform as it has the highest volume of sales and seems to be the one I see in the market place the most. Sometimes I use it as a test bed. That is I may upload 20-30 here but only 3-5 on some others. But if it is selling here I will move it to others as the story is functional. Planned shoots...I always have one or two things on my list that I want to shoot. I live in midwestern United States so the past month has been images of harvesting corn, soybeans, wheat etc...Soon it will be people raking leaves. Did it last year but this year will be new styles etc. Also it makes me prepare equipment properly. Continuous learning...I am always listening to feedback and trying something new in photography or post processing. Even if I dont have a need for it learning it makes me better with my equipment and software Editorial is not a bad place for amateurs...true life is the easiest story to tell. And it is something that is hard for others to copy...literally so you can make a niche with editorial quickly. Wait a year...sound strange but I had a bit of surprise last year when i was chasing holiday stories but couldn’t sell much. What I have learned is that many seasonal things can sell as early as a month in advance...so many of the see better sales the second time around. Enjoy it...Learn to love learning and the community. Have fun in figuring out how to do that and surprise yourself with a bit of “wow did I do that?” There you go take it or leave it. At one point it was will I sell this week. Then will I sell on every day. Then how much will I make this month and how fast will that trend grow. Now I am tracking upward trends in daily sales and now I even have consistent weekend sales...which as an interesting bench mark. Every month I will break a single daily sale record. It is do able but you have to have a system that makes you better.
