Hi all,

I've got around 120 images live on Shutterstock and others now, after signing up a couple of months ago. Now I'm now seeing some flaws in the editing of my earlier efforts though; they are suffering with compression and artifacts due to my newbie-ness in using the wrong program/machine/poor display to edit.

Frankly now that I see them on a big screen (revived a 'vintage' 27" imac for the purpose) I'm embarrassed to have submitted them, and only marginally less embarrassed for Shutterstock for having accepted them.

The images started life well, however, so I'd like to edit properly and resubmit. My question is, should I leave the previous versions up there, or delete them first? Anyone else have any experience of this? I know there are certain agencies that won't accept variations on a single image so obviously for those I'd have to delete first.

Thanks!

I've got a bunch of images from 2012/2013 which are just embarrassing. Once in a blue moon I get a sale.

So I would just leave them and then re-shoot with better technicals. Buyers don't really care about your portfolio, they're looking for a specific image 99% of the time.

Good luck

Hah, ok thanks. They are travel images from holiday, so I can't re-shoot but I can re-edit the original properly from the RAW files.

I was more thinking in terms of the agency not liking the submission of multiple versions, but I guess (as with everything in this new experiment for me) it'll be a case of trial and error.

Try re-submitting the same image with minor changes. Worst that can happen is they're rejected.

Good luck :)
