  1. My illustration of DeLorean time machine rejected TWO times immediately after submitting with reason of Editorial Designation even when its designated correctly. I wonder if SS staff ever see this post, please @Kate Shutterstock @Alex Shutterstock
  2. Is anyone else struggling with getting their images reviewed today (2 OCT 2017)? I've posted all day and nothing is happening. I post editorial work, so I'm getting increasingly tense here. I wish these reviewers would understand that some news worthy editorial images loose relevance.
  3. Hello everyone. For the second weekend in a row I've been trying to upload images and they simply sit in my pending approval window. This doesn't happen during the week. I'm wondering if there's a glitch or my files are stuck. (I have tried to delete them and re upload them if anyone thinks that is the problem.) I'd like to know if Shutterstock reviews editorial images/illustrations on weekends? I'm uploading some current news event illustrations and they're obviously losing relevance by the day. I've attached three examples: 1. PUERTO RICO, CARIBBEAN, 22 September 2017 - Hurricane Maria leaves island under water. World weeps. 2. MEXICO, 23 September 2017 - Rebuild Mexico City. Third earthquake hits Mexico in two weeks. 3. MEXICO CITY, MEXICO, 22 September 2017 - The race against time. Mexico is in desperate need of International assistance after the devastating earthquake. This kind of work should be reviewed much quicker. I've tried emailing Shutterstock. Its like talking to a robot, they don't understand what urgency means. It's silly in my opinion, they could be selling so many more images if they found a way to prioritize editorial (news) images.
  4. Why do you think the sales have so low? I've heard and read all kinds of variations - including that sales have deliberately dropped (which I personally do not think) ... So, there are too many pictures put on sale and too few buyers? Is it about inflation? Are we, the contributors, guilty that not understanding the current changes and choosing to send the same kind of images as we did until now +/- some small variations? This is it? Should we radically change something to our style or the things are independent of anything we do? Is "the blame" of SS? Why would be? Do we have to take more pictures than we did until now (the number counts more?!)? Ok, it's better to send more for good exposure - but, that's it? This is all about!? Or do we need to "better target" the demands as SS tried to indicate us this: https://www.shutterstock.com/special/theshotlist (THANK YOU, SS!)? What do you think? I do not want to find guiltyes, I just want to understand why and how ... Thank you folks!
  5. I don't understand! I have created a series of photographs of German bunkers in the Atlantic Wall. All these buildings are painted with graffiti. It is impossible to photograph these without graffiti. They are freely accessible, and the graffiti is actually vandalism! These photos are uploaded as editorial/editorial use only. What exactly is the problem? The paintings? The bunkers? Non-Licensable Content -- Due to legal compliance restrictions, we cannot license this content in our collection.

  7. Hello, All Longtime photographer, first time Shutterstock contributor. I feel its safe to assume that most (not all) of the contributor photographers on here are at a professional level AND have a successful business outside of Shutterstock. I was reading a thread over in Hardware & Software about one of the contributors getting back in the game with a new Canon 5D SR and lens. Mike said the following "Are you saying that you are now or are going to be uploading 51 mp images? Why would you sell a 51 mp image for 38 cents?" That made me think "why do you (we) submit our hard work that takes skill, planning, time, resources and very expensive equipment all for just $.25 or .38 cents a download that sometimes never comes?" Myself I started because I wanted to be one with my camera ?(I know that sounds silly) and have a reason to use my camera everyday. I don't care too much about the couple dollars I've made. Why Do You Do It? I didn't want to hijack a thread. Here is the original: http://forums.submit.shutterstock.com/topic/76489-very-pleased-with-canon-5dsr-and-11-24-for-stock/ Crowded Cafe
  8. Hey, I was used to upload editorial pictures of Lego minifigures in my portofolio but when i did so last time they were immediatly rejected with this reason "We are no longer accepting this type of content." Has anybody any idea why so ? Do you have similar problem ? i tried several times over a few days and i had a look at all legal information changes mentioning Lego on Shutterstock but didn't find anything. A bit annoying, cause these photos were in my top sells... Thanks for your answer !
