Shutterstock is responsive in that they come here to manage our perceptions, in regard to their lack of security and the recent measures needed to protect our accounts because they were asleep at the wheel.


oh wow, you explained what my first impression was when ss immediate responsive to the matter.
i just could not find the right words to my thoughts... it's like crooked politicians damage control
or the corporation or military middle management sleeping on the job
and had to quick wipe off their evidence before their bosses find out and sack them all.
i am sure there will be scapegoats to take their blame, of course. much like the public service
always hire temps in this time so they can blame the temps for their f**kups
sleeping on the job, like you say...so correctly on the mark.

well said.

subjects like this are why SS will not answer to review questions. Theres no point in answering, when nobody listyens.

You have to retain a sense of humour in this game - just had 17 out of 20 rejected on SS mostly for OOF. Meanwhile on RF123 had 2 rejected - one of them for OOF - guess what? - one of the three accepted on SS. (and I very rarely get /cant remember the last oof on RF)

You do need a sense of humour, yet that is something sorely lacking in this forum (Thats not directed at you Pauws99).

SS are unpredictable, it's true. You mentioned 123RF - at the moment, and I'm still reasonable new to this, I have 100% acceptance rate with them, but rubbish sales. Yet at SS i have a 70% acceptance rate, and 10 times the revenue of 123RF.

There are plenty of images SS rejected that are selling on Istock and Fotolia.. but SS still out performs all of them.

If I'm really honest with myself, the images SS refused deserved it, with a few exceptions. I've also noticed that at times, especially when I really can't see any faults in the image, I just resubmit and 9 times out of ten they accept them  :D  It's a pain, but at the end of the day, it pays off.

I'm going to regret saying this but there are a significant number of people in this forum that really should consider trying something new.. they seem to hate noobies, they hate Microstock and hate life. Why they're here is beyond me.

Noobies, by the way, are found everywhere - all business have to live with new  competitors all the time. Why is this any different?

Ok, to balance that out I have an image of a nice pair of boobs that will cheer everyone up... :)

They're probably using some kind of software that clearly still needs a lot of improvements. I had rejections for OOF recently too - and trust me, after 10 years in this business and 15,000 images I can tell if an image is in focus or not. Funny thing I didn't even get upset this time - just laughed (honestly). All images accepted everywhere else of course...
I have a couple of very nice new shoots that I can't even make myself to start processing. Where will I send them? SS will reject all but one for OOF (and will give away that one as a giant preview), DT won't sell a single image, Alamy too, on FT they'll earn a few cents and disappear somewhere deep in the database, Istock won't sell much either, Getty will just give away for free for anyone to use as they please.... I am so tired of this game.

Good for you for even bothering to do new shoots.  I can't bring myself to shoot anything new for exactly the reasons you listed.
