May i ask, what "fresh" content use is for buyer? I mean, e.g. sees and likes to buy a "red rose" from artist A.  Either he/she will search for similars from artist A either will follow a personal link perhaps to make a direct deal. But if he/she search " red rose" how fresh content from artist A  e.g. "christmas tree" help? The most i read here, buyers don't follow or bookmark contributors?

There is a Fresh content in the search, just not on our personal collection page. Right now, I looked and new uploads go on page one of my collection, The first five are recent sales, then new are on the second row, mixed with some of sold, new, sold, new, after than two pages of new. So while it's not marked with some name for fresh or most popular, that never made any sense, it does feature new towards the first three pages.

If a buyer searches Red Rose they will see Most Relevant/All Images/All orientations Then the first choice is Fresh Content.

I don't know how much any buyer looks at MY content page for newest images? Why? I upload all kinds of different things at different seasons or times of the year when I'm working on different projects. Who would want to see my NEW? Doesn't make sense. Unless I'm only a foodie or only make one kind of works, which, maybe that would be good for someone who only buys that kind of images.

My best selling images don't start until page 5. I like that too, in case someone wants to be "inspired" to copy, because that makes it so they can't see what actually sells best.

Many buyers prefer to search by new images, because that way they know it was not used many times bu others already.

Shutterstock are brining back the Fresh/Newest tab on the portfolio interface page. Just received an email.

Good or bad news for some!

You left off "I don't care".  ;D I don't know why anyone would search for fresh content on a contributor page, or if it makes any difference, as the page now shows fresh content first, with a mix of recently sold. Is someone going to find one of my photos and then search for a fresher version of the same subject?  ???


--- Quote from: cascoly on December 06, 2019, 19:02 ---when i do a simple search with only searchterm, it shows sorted by newest

i use fresh/newest when i send people from my website so they see the latest images

Right, the page default is new already.

I suppose that could be a reason, if I was sending people to randomly see what's new?

I really believe that buyers search for content and subject or concept, not what's new. At least for what I make, I can't see someone who's looking at a car picture caring that I took a picture of fried eggs, or a shopping cart, because those are new. If I only shot the same subjects, over and over, then sure, someone might want to see what's new.

As a buyer, I have searched this way. Who wants to use an image thatís been downloaded and possibly used thousands of times.
