  1. I am sure almost everybody has some pix of that kind. Not so many sales usually but we love them! So let's share our not-so-commercial live treasures! 1-3 images, for example... And share how many sales the images had (optional!). Thanks in advance! I'll start. --- 1. This is a dusky leaf monkey. The number of sales - 0. https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/dusky-leaf-monkey-trachypithecus-obscurus-known-618670070 2. Macaque kids playing.

  2. Hi all I was collecting new data for Stock Photo Ideas after the feedback on top-100 customer queries by traffic. I took top-500 customer queries by traffic instead of top-100 this time and analyzed portfolios that were on the first pages of Shutterstock search for these queries. These are only queries for photo and video. The results are published on Petapixel: https://petapixel.com/2021/07/23/how-to-rank-on-the-first-page-of-top-queries-on-stock-photo-sites/ Believe it or not, I found out that about 30% of portfolios that rank at least once on the first page have 1000 or less photos
  3. This contributor has several of my videos in his portfolio. For example this ... https://www.shutterstock.com/ru/video/clip-1063378141-stack-gold-bars-bullion-precious-metal-investment My original videos were HD and this thief converted them to 4k. This is my original video https://www.shutterstock.com/ru/video/clip-5057402-gold-barsingot-loop-finance-3d-animation Please look, maybe your videos are there too ... And the second question! Why is my video footage visible in search results? My Video Portfolio has been disabled since November 2020... And obviously I will ask the
  4. Hi community, I was wondering whether anybody else deactivated their video sales (Contributor portal > [your name in the top right] > Account Settings > License Options (bottom right panel) > Video sales: NO), like I just did. As I am seeing that most of my videos go monthly for 0.26-0.34$, to the point that people buy five of my videos in a row on the same day for the grand total of 1.70$ in royalties for me, I am concluding that it does no longer make any sense to sell videos on Shutterstock. I will keep my photos for the time being, without uploading the newer ones (I
  5. Hello, I've 3 images that don't appear in my portfolio till now, one of them approved from 31 March. I understand that it may take up to 3 days, but I've submitted many photos after that 31 March that got approved and appeared normally in my portfolio! Why are some approved images appear almost instantly but others don't? Thanks for your help.

  10. I disabled my SS portfolio last weekend. Since SS actually turned it off, I have not had a single sale on the other agency I contribute to. For over a year, I've consistently had a fair number of sales every week on said agency. Is anyone else having this experience?

  13. My portfolio is reduced from around 700 photos (I forgot if 700+) to 24 photos. Is anyone else facing this? The lack of any recent threads about this is worrying!
  14. So my friend is creating her own shutterstock account in my pc, and she accidentaly put her url over mine account, and i want to change it to my own url, but it won't let me change it
  15. It would be very helpful for the contributors if SS assigned port cloud keywords instead of some congratulation! or "people add to collection" notifications or daily sold reports.
  16. My images was reviewed and approved before 4 days and i can not see them in my portfolio , the images needed to be selected as adult content and i did that 2 . I also did a reading about that it will take mostly up to 3 days for images to be shown in portfolio . Why can i not see or find my photos ?
  17. Hello friends, I'm trying to maintain my portfolio a bit. Some of my earlier accepted submissions have fewer keywords (they are proper and related with the images but a bit few like 19-25). And with new keywording tools it is a bit easier to manage stuff on Catalog Manager. It is okay to update keywords of earlier submissions and any other of you ever do that? I thought it may be help on optimizing search results and increase sales. I'd love to have your opinions and experiences too! And Happy New Year everyone!

  22. It's my first post on the forum so hello everyone! I am contributing since 2 months now and I started to sell something. Since now every image sold the next day was coming at the top in the "most relevant" section in my portfolio, but in the recent days I saw new images at the top, but no sale was reported. Here is my question then, were those images sold but shutterstock keep all the money for themselves or there is another reason why those images came at the top?
  23. I am not sure if this is the right place to ask this question, so I'll appreciate any suggestion. I would like to split my portfolio in two - with two distinct IDs and logins - without having to delete and re-upload content. Is this even possible? If anyone did this before, can you please share the process or tell whom should I ask at Shutterstock. Thanks!
  24. Hello, im new in stock photography and photography in general, I would love some opinions and some tips if you may. Thanks in advance!
  25. 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 beauti
