Doesn't work for me too! Did they bite the dust?

Did anyone get anything approved since ESP went live?

I got one photo approve (two days review time - upgrade from 21+) and it says that it is approved. However, when you click on the file it takes you to istock and it says the file is not found.
Status of the file is approved/published. Does anyone know is it going to be the same as in day or two to get published or what?

BTW, I never got my invite, never got an answer either, just went ahead and did username/password reset.

I uploaded some with DM3 and they got approved. When I click on them it directs me to and they are visible.

Received today the email "Your new sign-in credentials for ESP" but where it is saying "Follow your unique link:" There is no link!

Now if I go to the ESP page I can logon with my email address and my iStock password, but is that correct?

Reset my password and had access to my account again.

When looking of what Shutterstock considering "Title Spamming" then I don't think that I have anything like this.

I got the same email too. Shutterstock doesn't use the Title meta tag only the description, if I am not mistaken. Never less, I don't think that I have any image with repeating phrases. Not even sure how to check if I may have one for whatever reason.

General Stock Discussion / Re: How was your February sales?

My February statistic:

30% down compared to last month, but 16% up compared to last year February. I just can't recover from the huge drop with Shutterstock in 2014.

For the last two year I am making less and less money with SS. Soon they are not important to me, because I make more with others!

I have about 1 sale per month on average with about 900 images online. It is very time consuming to upload via my phone to them. So I almost don't add anything to them anymore.

I received the same message a few month ago. Doesn't look like that they are in a hurry to fix this.

« on: January 04, 2015, 16:15 »
2014 was only 5% better then 2013, but the last few month were bad. Just look at my income graph

Shutterstock had a huge drop for me starting October, and haven't come back up again. Also the POD Christmas season was much weaker this year. I just hope 2015 will be better.

The word to describe November this year is "horrible"! I am down 7% from October and 17% down compared to last year November. My biggest lost comes from Shutterstock, and the POD's have not picked up for the holidays as they have done in the last few years.

My best four for November were: DepositPhotos, Zazzle, Shutterstock, 3dRose

Why does one after another agencies have to make this change to the referral program?  >:(

« on: November 19, 2014, 16:20 »
If nothing changes, than I will be 70% below normal at Shutterstock in November.

« on: November 19, 2014, 16:13 »
Congratulations on the sales! For me it is the opposite in the moment at Shutterstock. It is unbelievable low in the moment!

General Stock Discussion / Re: October Earnings
« on: November 04, 2014, 15:36 »
I expected so much more from October this year, but by the end I was happy just not to be below September. For whatever reason my revenue (sales and referrals) from Shutterstock dropped drastically in the second half of October, and it has not returned to normal so far. Also my POD sales have not increase this year so far. So October turned out to be the same as September and 5% less then last year October.

My best four: Shutterstock, DepositPhotos, BigStock, Zazzle

« on: October 27, 2014, 10:30 »
Not sure what to do, but I am down to 30% of what is normal for the daily income from Shutterstock. And this now for good two weeks. Soooo not good! I hope whatever has changes that they will change it back.

The first half of the month was very good, but starting with the 15th of this month, I have a huge drop in sales and referral income. Not sure why  :(
