Also, I havn't found the way to mark if something is resubmitted

Don't bother. They made this easier for mobile but I'm on a laptop. They didn't test before making things easier for all file types. Others have pointed to Jon and bad managment without direction, this just shows thats true.

I've never ticked resumbit notice why tell them?

Yes, I think they've made some adjustment to it to allow unlisted keywords to be marked correct. I just uploaded something else and a "mark as correct" option appeared.

Other sites have discovered a problem with that, though.  People marking random typos as correct.  Eventually, the dictionary becomes useless.  Best practice is to have the program collect unknown words that have been checked as correct, and get someone to add the good ones to the dictionary.  Of course, that means more work, and someone to pay to do it.  But, it's what works best over time.

A desktop user should not be using a mobile device interface.
This is 2017 you can have templates for different devices.

Tell SS they haven't seemed to figure that out yet.  :)

Model releases window is terrible and painful for me - with huge amount of releases. The font size is big, the default option is not A-Z, but newest.  Submitting is very slow for me :'(

Figured out this morning that you don't have to click "multi select" to choose more than one image. Just click on the first image, hold down the shift key, click on the last image.

I love it when people upload one photo and say it's easy. Not a vector, not more than one image, no need to do the multi select thing, no need to edit, no need to see whether the system recognized your image as a vector or not, no need to see more than one image at a time, no "incorrect" keywords. Such a breeze!

What's wrong with my feedback? So I tested one image, I'll test more later. Stop being so angry all the time.

Haven't uploaded anything for months ......think I'll postpone uploading for another few months now until they get themselves sorted out. Methinks they're on a mission to destroy themselves. Things that need fixing never get fixed and things that worked well for contributors they break.  :(

Just went to submit 20 photos. Firstly it timed out, then I got two emails confirming the submission.

Now my account says nothing is pending approval, but I have images awaiting submission.

A broken mess. No idea what is going on with it. Can't be bothered to try again.

I haven't read all the comments in this thread, but there seems to be a lot of criticism of the new submissions page.

I have to say, I am really impressed with it. IMO, it is a vast improvement on the old one.

I like the way we are able to enter words and place names, if it doesn't recognise them we can mark as correct and they seem to be added to a dictionary.

It no longer questions every single number, such as in a date, so editorial is much easier to upload.

I can think of other sites who could take a lesson from SS.

All they had to do for that was to update the dictionary.  There was no need to knacker the whole system. 

Curious:  Do you use a mobile or desktop computer?

I ask because I really think Shutterstock is trying to drive the old timers away.  We make more per sale.  Newbies start at a lower rate.  It's a corporate move other companies have made. 

The combination of re-tooling the site toward mobile devices and advertising under the "gigs" section of Craigslist suggests to me that Shutterstock wants to be the Wal-Mart of stock sites.

I wouldn't be surprised if they have people going around to laundromats pinning hand written ads on the bulletin boards.

Uploaded on a lap top, submitted on a desk top. I'm an old timer, SS number 280. November 2004.
There are things about SS that aren't that impressive, eg the new front page, which took away just about everything I wanted and gave me lots I didn't. Then ignored me when I asked why in the forum.
However, I never liked the old SS submit page, and I do prefer this new one. It was a long time coming, but it's here now. Which sites have a better submission process? Tell me, I'm interested.

I haven't used it as I stopped uploading a couple months ago but I have applied to Stocksy and LOVE their interface. Very easy breezy.

Hopefully they're bringing it back for everyone and it wasn't a (happy) glitch.

Edited to add: It was a glitch. When I tried it again the new interface was back. :(

When I was trying to try this out it just kept telling me there was a problem uploading whatever image I sent, so every 10 or 15 or 30 minutes when I remembered I'd try again with the smallest file size image in my batch. After about 5 hours Things started working and I uploaded the batch and painfully processed it. Now I perpetually have that one image waiting to be processed. I delete it, then the wheel spins for a while - 5 minutes? I don't know, and I have that one image again. I just delete it every time I go to check my stats. I've deleted a bunch over the last few days.

Couple of things I've noticed. Firstly, when entering the description you can't type any more than 200 characters (I know it's the limit) whereas before you could go over and edit down your text (which was useful sometimes with editorial). Secondly, if the new system is designed for mobile uploading, it isn't working for me - upload / pending / submit pages won't load on my phone's browser anymore (they worked perfectly a week ago).

I think that they will never return the old editor. It would mean for them to admit defeat.

Furthermore, they are testing changes on the live site so they probably don't have a backup copy of the old editor ;D

The old editor is still there...after their site outage I had it for one submission. Then it reverted to the new editor.

I hope they give us the chance to select between new and old one...

Every UI designer making new submit page should first submit at least 1000 files with groups of people and a lot of property releases. Then designer will have an idea how to make good page. Otherwide it is doomed for failure.

Hi all!

I also don't like new design, and decide to fix it by myself.

I installed Chrome css exstantion called Stylish (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/stylish-custom-themes-for/fjnbnpbmkenffdnngjfgmeleoegfcffe)
add add my custom ccs code Shutterstock Submit (https://userstyles.org/styles/151535/shutterstock-submit)

This is my temporary solution while we waiting new update.
