Hey there,
Illustrator 2019 has a neat feature called free gradient. However, when I use it and convert to eps 10 for shutterstock, it becomes raster.  Solution for this...?

there is no solution.. it will become raster.
one way is to trace it.

I tried this as soon as I updated and was so disappointed to see that it expanded to a mess of clipping paths and a bitmap "Non-Native Art" swatch. If it could only expand to gradient mesh that would be perfect!

If you have a bunch of art where you've already used this and need to convert objects you might check out http://www.meshtormentor.com/ though fair warning: this plugin has been around forever and I haven't used it in years.  I know it worked fine for me about 3 versions back though.  Probably best to just pretend the new gradient type doesn't exist for stock vectors though :(

You could still use that "new" technique but you'll probably have to sell the image as a JPG but the original will probably have to be reconfigured to accommodate a stock site's rules that's all.  :)

Personally I am tired of this software pretending to do every thing.
Years ago Illustrator was a vectorial software producing vectorial files, and Photoshop was a bitmap software producing bitmap files
Today they want that Illustrator produces vector+bitmap+web+sound+movie+etc
The same for Photoshop

And of course they do al that bad
