Thank you so much! I followed your Flickr link and just love your stream over there! Good luck to you as well! :)

Thank you so much for the links! I have access to Getty's creative research (for contributors), so it's nice to see other trends in the stock industry. I changed my one "Favorites" album on Flickr into four separate "Portfolio" albums, so perhaps this will help. The overlap is sometimes difficult to distinguish for me, heh..

Loved seeing the winners and the amazing imagery there!

A disturbing notion.. but what about more macrostock like Getty Images and Corbis? Or video format for that matter? Think they will follow suit?

All of this information is incredibly interesting, especially as someone new at Shutterstock! Guess I didn't realize how much goes into it.. O.o

Guess I am the opposite there, getting most of my income from Getty.. but just recently started with other microstock sites. I do know, however, that anything you post on Getty, CANNOT be sold anywhere else. You can sell prints, but not the files for commercial use.

Man.. same here.. they complain a lot about focus.. yet the focus always seems spot on to me.. Some submissions with be great, but the last two batches, they rejected everything.. :/

Those ARE beautiful shots! :)

With the new format, they ask you to submit at least 25 images with a minimum of 5.8MP each.. they also ask for other portfolio and social media sites. Previously it stated they wanted to see a long history of images, so to speak, to show consistency of what you can offer.

When I submitted my application yesterday, it stated the files must be at least 5.8 MP.. if that helps some.. though wish I would have researched more before submitting.. :/ Excitement got the better of me after waiting for so long for it to open back up!

Hey, new here, and very nervous about the Stocksy application. I should have looked into it more before applying, but after waiting soooo many months for their call to artists to open back up, I submitted my application the moment I got my notification -- yesterday..

Ugh.. after reading more, I am hoping I didn't choose the wrong kinds of pictures. :(

I also connected many other social media sites (Flickr, Facebook, Website, Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, etc).. do those have any influence on their decision, or just the images you submitted for your "portfolio?"

I mainly shoot lifestyle of my boys, and have been a Getty contributor for almost 4 years. Not having much luck with microstock, however, as I've been told my images are not "stocky" enough.. I have some images on Shutterstock, iStock, Fotolia, Dreamstime and 123RF (in addition to my large portfolio at Getty), but those microstock sites have been very difficult for me to add to my portfolios.. especially Shutterstock..

So, no holding back.. think I even have a chance getting accepted with Stocksy?! :(
