  1. Hi All, after some guidance if posisble please. Just started using Procreate on the iPad and uploaded a few files, nothing special by any means. But it seems that I would have a much wider audience if I could upload these files as vectors. Does anyone know how, if it is posible, to convert Procreate files into vectors please? If it is only by loading into Illustrator and using image trace, I seem to remember SS saying several years ago that they were no longer accepting fulll colour trace images, only black line images due to issues with colours, fading, gradients, etc. I may be wro
  2. Just getting started here. I have a small portfolio so far. My tastes run to unique closeups. I love, love, love tweaking or going hogwild with tones and colors in LR or PS. If the quality is there - composition, sharpness, exposure, is there a problem with playing with pixels? I'm thinking in specializing in textures. Also, I had to look up what vector was. Seems like some of my wilder experiments might do better as vectors, or should I post them as both?
  3. Hi! So, I have a vector that keeps being rejected. A similar one, with one difference was accepted. The rejections keep being "Linked Images / Bitmaps / Raster Effects: Vectors containing linked images, bitmaps, and/or raster effects are not acceptable." I use Inkscape and when to View-> Outlines to see what was going on because there aren't any images in my vector. There is a green line showing a clipping path that I created from different colored rectangles to get a different shape. Could that be an issue? Does SS not accept clipping sets?

  6. Does anyone experience issues with uploading EPS files? Every time I uploaded vector EPS files (without JPGs according latest guidlines), no matter via FTP client or website form - they just disappeared like I never uploaded them. They never appeared: empty page, no files at all. When I tried to upload vectors in old-fashion way (along with JPG preview images) I got an error "you have to mark those images as illustrations", which means basically that the system still accepts raster images, but refuses vector files for some reason, no matter if they accompanied with JPSs or not.
  7. February started horrible with 6-9 downloads per day... I contacted shutter a couple of times that I only seem to have downloads before noon, after that it's like they hit stop and for 12 hours no downloads at all, and this goes like this for weeks, this way I loose the possible customers from USA, Brasil and from the whole american continent...They always respond to my mails with the same standard email for any problem. I would like to know if anyone (who sells vectors) experienced anything similar? And if anyone who is a member for a long time has also weak download numbers like me?
  8. Hello! Are drop shadows accepted for vectors? Do they need to be expanded? TIA S:)
  9. I have this problem for several days. Uploading through browser works fine, but when I am uploading vectors through ftp, all accompanied jpg-images have the same error "Your file xxxxxxx.jpg could not be processed due to invalid format." And as a result, I can't submit any vector. What can I do or how soon will it be fixed?
  10. Hello people, I have read a lot of post here in the forum but this is my first post. I am contributing to Shutterstock for more than 2 years, my portfolio contains more than 260.000 files, and I have reached the highest level of the amount earned per download as a shutter stock contributor, which means that when shutter stock sells one of my files for their Best value (just $0.27 an image) I receive more than that, so shutter stock doesn't earn from my sales. Three days ago, in my surprise, I received an email from Jon, a member of Shutterstock Submit Department saying the followi
  11. Edited: How do I upload various images as a set on the Shutterstock upload page? Do I put them in a zipped file or use a special upload page? As I can't find options to upload as a set. Hello fellow contributor, I am new here. I am very happy to share the news that I just made my first $0.25 at Shutterstock. Yeah! I browsed Shutterstock vectors sections and noticed that patterns in sets of 10 are popular. Technical Question: How do I upload my vectors and images in sets? I can't find the option in my upload window. And I also see that the popular sets have a front cover

  17. Hello everyone I've been submitting vectors lately (around 5, 1 per day) and suddenly... all of them have been moved, from "In review" to "rejected images" without sending any e-mail stating the reason why. They don't even state the rejection reason in the "Rejection images" section. Should i just move on, re-submit them or wait some more for the rejection reason? Thanks in advance Héctor
  18. Hi I uploaded 175 vectors to shutter stock and unfortunately by mistake I put yes to editorial but all the submitted images are commercial. After approval when I edit them the editorial option was locked. So is there any way to change this. Thanks in advance.
