Because of the new year I wanted to add some humor to the topic. https://www.shutterstock.com/contributorsupport/articles/kbat02/000012339 support article that explains similar and rule for this.

As noted on the forum, many times, it's obvious that they don't observe their own rules. I loved the one about, Images where the only change is a filter, and look above in this thread where this is common, or Virtually identical variations of common designs (such as national flags) and time after time there are major pages and pages of not change except the flags?

It would be so interesting to know what's really happening inside that company.   

I get the impression that there's been so much turnover and organizational 'churn' that things are chaotic and some 'games' are being run by insiders.   These thousands of repetitious junk images didn't get in by being submitted and inspected through normal channels; something else is going on.

The competition have given them an easy ride for too long allowing all kinds of slackness. While doom mongers have been expecting them to collapse for years I think the days of their dominance may come to an end in 2019.

Everything doesn't change fast or as we'd predict, because we're closer than the buyers. Many years ago I was at a Photoshop class and the instructor just talked about iStock, I don't even know if she had heard of Shutterstock. They also ran a design firm. We all know what changed there. When Adobe moved into the market, there were all kinds of professional and financial observations, how that was going to make for serious competition for SS. While those points are true, Adobe has been making steady changes, carefully observing and adjusting.

While it might take longer than this year, 2020 is not far off at the rate everything is going:

1) Which is the only top agency that increased our commissions in 2018? (small but it was an increase)
2) Which major agency has been promoting their cloud access, advertising, gave us software for our effort?
3) Which major agency has been increasing earnings in the MSG poll, all year?
4) Which agency upholds quality standards for new content, not allowing spam portfolios or substandard quality.

2020 I can see clearly now.  8)
