They enjoy rejecting similars with video footage.... but what about the photo? Are there no curators for this crap?

I feel they are trying to become the next facebook or instagram or whatever I don't know. Its just a matter of time when they will drop the entire review process and reduce royalties like istock.

Please tell me this is a plan to push customers up to a higher price platform.

They are nothing like facebook or instagram.  They just want to boast having one billion images before the competition does.

I'd be surprised if he had more than 5 sales a week.

Sometimes I wonder how I keep selling my fairly average efforts in the flood of images...I guess there's the answer....just ludicrous. Now sales are flattening maybe stockholders will start to dig a bit deeper wonder what they will make of this "quality content".

This is one of the stunning portfolios I've ever seen. Not because of how good it is, but how dedicated the contributor is. This is passion in its purest form. I have no choice but to admire it.

I haven't checked every single image but I suspect hes missed an opportunity to have each image in a range of colours....bit lazy really.

Lol, quite funny actually!

But what it looks like is it was 100% automated. I *highly* highly doubt he manually submitted those. He probably did spend at least 2-3 hours creating the content. But pushing a button did the rest. For generation, it looks like a 3D model, which he 'slightly' tweaked/moved by 1 degree, just pushed a button, and submitted 26,000+ photos.

I am sure he is dominated the "POS" market. Lol, really quite funny.
https://www.shutterstock.com/g/percom -> 260,000+ images.

It's actually really quite hilarious.

HOWEVER, I don't think you have to worry about it. Shutterstock can play the same game - and they'll look and (eventually) say 'hmm, who has a portfolio of 260,000 photos of almost nearly identical content'? And then all they have to do is push 1 button, "delete", and his entire portfolio is gone.

Most companies have a low tolerance for what they perceive as spam, and it's just a matter of time until shutter stock does something about that. Even though he 'only' spent 2-3 hours (maybe actually 10-20 hours) - he will be quite upset when his account is deleted, and/or most of the images gone somewhere down the road...

PPS, ss says:

"199,570,752 royalty-free stock images / 1,392,424 new stock images added this week"

So his 260,000 "photo" portfolio is 0.13% of shutterstocks entire portfolio! OR... if he uploaded it all this week, 19% of the entire upload. Maybe only '4' people uploaded "photos" this week, and each did 260,000+! :)

The evidence is no they won't look and delete and supposedly images are inspected makes you wonder if some people have a "back door".

All that will happen is just 1-2 customers will have to complain, and say 'what is this', and then 'poof', portfolio gone...

He just sets a 3D model and a camera with an helicoidal movement around it.
Then he starts the rendering and go to sleep.
The following morning he has 2000 frames ready to keyword and upload
:D

Thing is, keywords were probably auto-generated, as well as the uploads. So he just goes to sleep, wakes up, says 'ooh! portfolio of 260,000 images!'

True. That would mean he has to use different keywords for each image and that would be too much work.

Yeah, he probably exported each frame with the same keyword set in the metadata and did a mass FTP upload. I'm just shocked that SS didn't reject anything.

SS advertised on Craigslist as a way to make easy money, then accepted everything that was submitted.  Instant billion.

You mistake SS for a company which gives a d*mn. Cannabis Man is still up from at least 2015, and now has 46,684 images on SS, though I see that more recently he's moved into guns and one or two other themes. Wonder if he's drawing the outlines himself? (Of course he is!)

You're welcome!
