  1. Does it make sense to make a long description of the picture? Does it help search? Or a short description is enough because the search for images is mainly carried out by tags? My pictures are rejected. The reason is problems with the description. One of the theories why this is because I am overloading the description, there are too many details. Have you had trouble rejecting your picture due to the description? How did you solve them? Here is a quote from image reviewers who did not like the description -
  2. Hola, esta es la primera vez que hago una consulta en el foro ya que no puedo encotrar la solucion a mi problema. Tengo un drone Air 2s, he realizado varias tomas y subido varios clips pero siempre son rechazados por la misma razón: Ruido/artefactos. Hice varias pruebas para tratar de encontrar una solución y no lo he logrado, siempre son rechazados. Los videos son tomados en full HD, editados en Premiere PRO 2019, exportado con codec h.264, dandole el mejor procesamiento y con un bitrate elevado (VBR 2 pases min 40 máx 55). Al principio pensé que podría ser la corrección de col
  3. Hi Everyone, the review team is rejecting me some illustrations for similar content, the fact is that they are images of chemical elements in which the substance changes, for example gold silver etc etc. Is there a way to make them understand that they are totally different and that a customer may want to purchase an image for each substance? Thanks
  4. Hello, both of these photos were rejected because it's out of focus and noise. Even though i've used a noise reducer in Photoshop and the object is quite focused enough for me. Should I retake? or maybe is there something I can work with using Photoshop? thanks for the help!
  5. hello, I'm new here. Recently I wanted to submit my photo of a dirty ball. But it got rejected because it got "too much noise". I think they mistaken the scratches on the ball as noises. I've attached the picture below. any ways that my photo can get accepted? I don't want to remove the scratches because it's the main focus here
  6. I have same nice images of yoga on stand up paddle board. Took a drive during the night to go to the river to take them in the early morning at 6 o clock during the sunrise. Busted my ass for it and now they reject them all because they say they are not sharp, and I think its total BS. How can you tell if its sharp enough when it is a silhouette and the subject is dark. I get them that it ''looks'' that is not sharp, but I know they are sharp because the board where the subject is standing IS sharp. And that place is in the plane with her face, and I am not able to get those images online. And
  7. I have had a couple of images rejected do to main subject not in focus, blurry. What if that is how I want the photo to look, a little soft/blurry to give a certain feel? Perhaps Shutterstock is not interested in photos that have a little creative different look to them. Has anyone else run into this situation? Below are two different examples.
  8. I recently attached Shutterstocks electronic model release form completed by model correctly and submitted... It came back" Invalid Model Release: One or more of the attached model releases does not meet our requirements." I had the model check and complete again. Submitted again and was rejected with the same reason! I am baffled to what is wrong??? It was Shutterstocks Form???
  9. Yesterday, I submitted 20 photographs. All of them were rejected by Shutterstock for the exact same reason of Noise/Film Grain. Most of these photographs do not have noise/film grain, and some pictures of mine that were much worse than these have been approved in the past (take a look at my portfolio; you'll see what I'm talking about). These photographs were taken with different equipment, so there isn't something wrong with the camera I'm using. Is there a way to appeal? I have submitted photos before, and many have been rejected, therefore I'm familiar with this system. What happened today
  10. I've had some images rejected, corrected the indicated topics, do I have to wait until the rejected works are deleted?
  11. Hi, I was uploading some photos today, and my photo of a set of vintage silverplate flatware was rejected with the following comment: "Title must be descriptive and relevant to the subject matter and must be in English. Titles cannot contain special characters, spelling/grammar errors, or repeat words/phrases in excess" I do not feel any of those were valid reasons. The description read, "Vintage silverware service for 12 people" That's exactly what was pictured, and it's obviously in English. It was preciscely relevant and descriptive. There were no special characters (it sai
  12. Hello! I'm a new contributor at Shutterstock and I was feeling kind of motivated when one of my images sold twice already and two other photos sold once each. However, I've now loaded a bunch of new images and noticed my sunset pictures keep being rejected. I thought they were beautiful sunsets, but maybe it's something with the mechanics. Can anyone provide a little insight? Also, are they salvageable in some way or a totally lost cause? The notes said something about a logo or brand name, which I didn't realize was even legible on the boat?! The notes also said the main subject was not
  13. Dear sir/madam please let me know that why shutter stock is rejecting images that have no problems. I am submit lot of HD images draw by myself in Photoshop that have no feather one pixel even. Rejection reason every time is "Illustration has rasterization issues such as blurriness and/or artifacting." And lot of images that if i send again got approved. have no idea. please must reply me if anyone know. Thanks in advance.
  14. Hi, I'm a full time freelance photographer/filmmaker and I've been a Shutterstock Contributor for 4 years and have had up until December 2019 been getting nearly all my submitted images accepted. Recently I've been getting a lot of images rejected with the "Similar Content" rejection. I've read through other forum posts regarding this topic but was wondering if anyone has any solutions or workarounds for this issue? Below is an example of a recent photo session upload where I've had many more rejections for "Similar Content" than I've had before. I've recently read through the Shutte
  15. Why is this photo not taken to stock ?? Rejection reasons (1) Focus: The main subject of this image is not in focus. Kind people! What is this happening ?? This is sabotage! It is specially not take such simple beautiful photos ?? Who works here ?? The complete lack of taste, elementary concepts in photography!
  16. Hello, I took and submitted a perspective view of center / medallion of my Persian carpet (I am carpet's owner & uploaded property release). It is rejected and it says because of "Intellectual Property". Do you have any idea why the image is rejected, despite that I uploaded required property release? Thanks
  17. I have submitted 2 similar photos. For me they are in different ankle so I thought it should be fine. However, it turned that one of them was approved and another one was rejected. If I need to choose one, I'd rather keep the one that was rejected. Therefore, I removed the approved photo from my portfolio and resubmitted the one which was rejected before. BUT it was rejected again due to "similar content" even though there was no such similar photo in my portfolio now. I tried to resubmit and select "previously submitted" as note to reviewer but nothing changed. A
  18. Hello I am new to shutterstock contributors. I have recently uploaded some images which were too large. So I compressed them slightly to be the right size for upload. Looking at the image and zooming in, the image is fine. But, when uploaded they get rejected and for out of focus, when I click on the images they are awful. Is there a particular export setting in photoshop to counter this? Many thanks
  19. Hi, This week I had very strange rejection. I uploaded couple of images and videos representing a human face generated from code (symbols and letters). And both got rejected as Non-licensable content. I send a question to the Shutterstock support and the answer was: I still to not understand what exactly is the reason for this content to be Non-licensable. What exactly is the problem with artificial intelligence topic? Does anyone have an idea? And as far as I can see there are many images in the SS library with the same topic and rendered human faces. Thanks
  20. I am confused as to why the attached image was refused for barcoded.
  21. Hi! I find I've made a somewhat minor mistake in uploading a number of images recently. I want to correct that single mistake in the description of each and all the images that have been rejected under that same reason (1). Is there a fast and easy way to do this? [I'm afraid I'll have to upload each image again, cut paste the keywords and description again for each image, etc.] Any suggestions you can provide would be appreciated. Thank you for your help!
  22. My original seven works rejected already that "Intellectual Property: Image potentially infringes on another person's intellectual property rights (e.g., image contains artwork, writing, sheet music, or objects protected by copyright). I really do not understand how can be this! I am really sad.My kitchen utensil always what i am using even my backgrounds same color that pink serie belong to me,how can be another person's work 😮 I am working since last Ramadan feast by same serie and many already on my port that belong to me.Strange. I had contact with them but wasting time a lot.I
  23. Hi, I have uploaded some photos and everyone of them was rejected for not being editorial. I have uploaded similar before that did not have to be editorial. Is it that someone else has looked at them. This baffles me. Why? I have an example uploaded. Thanks. Andrew Penniall
  24. I have some photos that had been rejected and I can understand why. But for these two photos I feel like it was unfortunate to be rejected. So how can I fix this problem? Photo number 1 (the first above): the main object is not focus. It was a landscape photo, how is this not focus, or did I just miss something here? Can I fix it or leave it? Photo number 2: visible trade marks, which I notice it was text on the boat "pariwista" or tourism in English. It wasn't a logo or something commercial. Should I erase this text or just forget about it? Please help, thank you.
  25. I tried to upload these photos but they were rejected because, according to them, they contain trademarks or logos. Can anyone help me find them? I built the bicycle myself with my own hands and I'm sure it doesn't contain any logos or brands. The tires have the mark on the other side that is not seen in the photograph. The saddle has no mark. ...I also wanted to ask if anyone knows if there is a way to ask that the photo be reviewed more carefully, without having to upload it again. Thank you for your availability.
