  1. Hi all! I'm a fairly new contributor and I was wondering, am I allowed to post designer clothing in my images, do I need some kind of permission from the designer or are just the model releases enough? This particular clothes doesn't have a visible logo on it and it's not unique in the scence there is only one piece in the world, but it is fairly unique and recognizable, some pieces also have hand-made embroidery (which is kinda generic etno embroidery work) but it, combined with the type of old cotton material and cut, makes for some pretty unique dresses. Check out the attachment to see what I'm talking about. Thanks in advance! :)
  2. I have had a number of rejections due to not including the 3D in the metadata. The images are not 3D generated but created in vector based software. After a chat session with someone at support they tell me that anything 3D, that is a drawing on 3 axis, needs to have the 3D metadata. I offered another illustration I created (the one of the fortune cookie) and she said yes, this is a 3D image and proceded to ask me if I knew what 3D was. When I add additional questions she just keeps sending me links to the rules. The rules state "There are also special release and metadata considerations for illustrations produced with 3D rendering software." I did not use 3D rendering software to create this coffee cup. It may be she that doesn't understand what 3D renderings are. I have only had this problem in the last year or so, and only with Shutterstock. Has anyone else had this experience?
  3. Hello, I need a direct link to SS guidelines on submitting photos of marijuana and accessories (pipes). If anyone knows off hand I'd really appreciate the link. Thanks.

  5. Hello everybody and good sales. Take a beginner. Can I sell my photos on shutterstock, if they are available on other sites for licenses creative commons attributions on size 1920px? Such as the Flickers. Or it is necessary to remove my photos from the free access? Maybe there is a link to the rules about it? Thank you in advance.
  6. I thought that the keyword: LOGO is not allowed in Shutterstock. BUT I am confounded to find 13,781 pages of images with the keyword LOGO after browsing Shutterstock main page section on "Browsing by keyword". Maybe I missed something?
  7. I'm now selling my pictures for over a year, and one thing is not completely clear to me. Let's say, a company (company X) buy's your picture, with the intention to put it on their website, for somekind of news article. Another company (company Z) buy's your picture, with the intention to print it on 1 million coffee cups. Do both companies buy your picture for the same price? Or does company Z has to buy it with special details? I usually sell pictures for 0,25 cnt's and once in a while, for 1 or 2 euro. Maybe that has something to do with it? Bonus question * can a company buy your picture and all it's rights? I know this is possible on other websites, and you can set your own price.. I haven't seen it here?
