  1. Just reached 8K images today morning! Wow! Thanks to SS and all of you for your support from time to time. Regards, Rudra
  2. 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
  3. hey , we (3d artists from Turbosquid) are coming to this site. as you all know that shutterstock bought TS. what is the experience of you all for selling in shutterstock? as we are happy there but i dont know why turbosquid sold itself. and what about royalties? and 3d artists is quit different from photographer or other so roylaties also b differentiate us. hope for the best selling in here . best of luck you all.
  4. Can you guys tell me, which kind of video sells better on shutterstock. Or show me your top sold video/videos on shutterstock.
  5. A week ago Sunday we were awaken at about 3:00 AM by the most horrific thunderstorm, that light up the sky and shook the house. I've never experienced anything so intense. We were in the midst of a heat wave with 100 degree temperatures and experienced one of those freak "dry lightning" events. That morning, my wife and I commented on how lucky we were that there wasn't a fire. Well that turned out to be premature. We drove to the beach for a walk with the dog and then hunkered down at home to avoid the afternoon heat. At around 4:20, I stepped outside for a break, and that's when I look
  6. I am still reading through upload requirements. However, I am not finding the answer to this generic question. Can we upload and get approved images or videos that have an artistic viewpoint? I know Shutterstock sells illustrations, but I don't work with that medium yet. I have attached a photograph as an example. The image was taken on the west coast near the water. I inverted the colors to make something interesting. Also, if we are able to upload artistic images, do they need to adhere to the same requirements or any at all? For example, if this image is out of focus, does that matter like
  7. Be creative! Create your own image against the new reality and submit it to SS Here is mine that got accepted !
  8. Hi contributors, Today when I saw my earnings summary, I got shocked by seeing one image got downloaded for $ 0.17 only. As far as I know, minimum payout for per image download from SS is $ 0.25 and till now I had no issues with that. But as you can see below screenshots from my dashboard, I am really upset that the image got downloaded for even lower price than $0.25. When I searched on google for $ 0.17 per image download from shutterstock, I got surprised when one more person mentioned that his image got downloaded for $ 0.17 in below forum Also I f
  9. To avoid contributors to review the content in Content Manager again, I would like to see the "Add to set" option before the content is sent for approval. I'm still waiting for it.. Also, I would like the geo option "location" to be active for footage too.
  10. I have previously posted about SS being my lead earner again after having fallen well behind FT long ago (a few years?) Not sure how long FT was my top earner. Anyhow several months back SS took the lead once again (until FT had pulled ahead of them SS was always my top earner) and again last month SS was in the lead. Thanks SS! Don't know what happened for me at FT. They are close to SS but not where they once were for me. Beside the drop at FT SS has been slowly creeping up again in earnings too. Ill take it.
  11. Hi everyone! wanted to share with you. first a Big thank you to Shutterstock ! soon I will be passing a huge milestone on my all time earnings! Its been hard work, make no mistake but what a journey !
  12. Hello, My name is Roirike. I have been ask a question in SS FB group once about who is the curator/ reviewer behind shutterstock? are they sleep or not? some friends said they are AI or kind like a machine, but others said that they are a real people behind the reviewer/curator at Shutterstock. But my question now is if they are a real person can we see them, like .. i just wanted to know who are they? what they are looks like in person? but if they are a machine or software or hardware or any AI things, can we see it? I just curious about them/it. And thank you for your patience an
  13. SS is back on top. AS formerly F is now a mid level earner for me. They were my top earner for a long time but sadly since last month sales there have dropped like a stone.
  14. Is Shutterstock still the most cost-effective for photo and footage sales among other image stocks? Which stocks are between your leaders in sales figures?
  15. 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
  16. @Administrator / @Anna Shutterstock I would have a suggestion: "Add to set" option is currently only available in the Catalog Manager. It would be more logical to have this possibility at the beginning when the description and keywords are added to the images and footages.
  17. Hi folks, Recently I came to know that there is a website that allows to shutter stock images download illegally. Please report this website and please make more security for our images. It's a request to shutter stock team.

  19. Hello all, I am a photo contributor since almost one year ago. On february I decided to start uploading videos and what I found is that video review works very bad here on Shutterstock and not in other similar stock platforms. My history, 1. 4th February I started to upload videos on the platform, I sent around 200 videos to review. 2. 21th February, nobody review 87 videos and since nobody review it the platform decided to delete it as the period for review is equally to the period that we have for submitting content 3 weeks. 3. 4th March, I upload again all the content p
  20. Hi all, Did you already see the new blog about Shutterstock Custom. The replacement for Flashstock? Somebody already applied to be a contributor?
  21. My name is Karan and i am from India. It's have been just a week, i started uploading on shutterstock. My big question is that, "Do Indian images get sold on shutterstock? " I mean, do advertisers around the world are demanding pictures of Indian models? I will be thankful for a genuine response.
  22. I made this picture during my latest revisit to a familiar landscape.
