  1. Hi all, I'm a new contributor, an illustrator and designer. I have been searching about this for a while but couldn't find an answer. Q1. Since shutterstock limits keywords to 50, I was wondering if it is necessary to use obvious words like say your image is an illustration, to use "illustration" or "graphic" as a keyword? Seems kind of silly to use "photo" if the image was a photo categorised under "photos" I have looked at other illustrators and they seem to have used really obvious words like "illustration" and "vector", though I imagine if the image was already selected under illustration as a category under shutterstock, the image would appear if someone searched under illustration? Not sure about vectors, I mean the file is an .eps file and was uploaded under vector. Q2. Also, should I try to repeat the words in my description in my keywords? For example, my description is "Playground featuring a pelican, hare and tortoise." Should I still repeat "pelican", "playground", "hare" and "tortoise" for keywords? Q3. If I were submitting a keyword like "rain tree" (a type of tree) would the search engine bring this up when someone searches "tree" so I do not have to waste another keyword on "tree"? Would really appreciate if anyone could advise on this or point me to resource referring to this.
  2. I want to set image categories from Windows explore. I can set title and keywords, but I could not find property in "properties" of image. Is it possible to set categories of image from windows for shutterstock?
  3. Shutterstock, when we have such feature? It is quite irksome to fill tags in manual method, even when you use scripts and other automation stuff. I believe that this job must be done on Shutterstock side. Especially considering amount of earnings that we receive for providing awesome pix. ps Technology already permits such operations.
  4. I have edited some images in Darktable. Here I added some tags from "tagging menu" and added title and description from "metadata editor" menu, both found in right hand side in lighttable. After adding these metadata, I exported the JPEG files using "export selected" menu. In windows explorer, I can see the changes made in image properties. But when I upload images to Shutterstock, the don't show up and I need to enter all the details again manually. I want all tags, keywords and image description to be loaded automatically once the metadata is saved in the file since I want to upload them to multiple stock agencies and I don't want to add all metadata all over again. Please suggest me a good solution for this. Thanks.
  5. Hi all. So I'm trying to upload and submit some images that I took in Bolivia, in Eduardo Avaroa National Park. For some reason, Shutterstock's uploader does not allow the keyword "avaroa" to be in the keywords of those images.... and if I search Shutterstock for "eduardo avaroa" I get a bunch of images that have the "avaroa" keyword. This does not makes sense at all... why such restriction? If people want images of that national park, the most obvious conclusion is that they'll search of the NAME of the place! I'm just curious if these sort of situations have happened with you as well and, if so, how did you manage to bypass it without submitting the images one by one on mobile...? Thanks

  7. When people search for a tag and it happen to be only found in your title and not in the keywords/ image tags, does your image still show up? Thanks
