Shutterstock.com / Re: Sudden March drop sales
« on: April 03, 2012, 11:40 »
Hi everyone,
I am a new contributor to SS (less than a year) and my sales started raising exponentially from this January. I had 2 to 3 downloads every day with a portfolio of no more than 90 pictures. But on March, sales have tanked big time. Today is the third consecutive day that I had no sales at all. Anyone noticed something similar ???

The only thing that changed in the last 10 days, is that I emailed them about a case where some of my vectors were found on various sites as free (e.g. vectorfinder) I don't know if is relevant or not, just though I should mention it.

Cheers!

Lovely images  ;)

I have the same problem, I've uploaded some images yesterday and I can't find them in my unfinished files folder  ???

Yes, they have changed the order of popularity, it's better for me. I've another question. I have a lot of picture waiting for review since Friday. It's a long time for SS. Am I the only one that is waiting?

Hi Ellerslie,

Sometimes images have been approved in 4 or 5 days, but other they take more than 2 weeks  :-\ I only have been able to have 235 files accepted there, in a period of 6 month while in Canstockphoto I have 1622 files  ::)

 :) :)
Ah, ok, the most important thing is know what happen. So now I know that I can upload and sit quite  ;)
thanks for telling me your experience, it's very helpful  ;)

Hi Tempus, I know that 123Rf is a very good site and I want to build my portfolio there. So you tell me that in other periods they are faster? I don't want be boring and write them an e-mail when I submit some images so I prefer wait until it's a better period for them because really, after 10 days, I don't know if it's a normal time or if my images are forgotten (bacause one of my friend tells me that sometimes they forget to do the review, so I'm worried...and nervous...and I don't like to be in this way  :-\ it's not my personality). Now I wait a week for another upload but, how can I know if it's a good period or not? ??? I'll try with fingers cross  :)

How can I upload other works if I'm not sure if my images are only waiting the review or have been forgotten  >:(
I think that is better delete everything and put all my work on Canstock where the reviewers are very fast (I'm angry , 13 days are a too long time!)

p.s. My nick there is Shamain, I prefer that my works are refused but don't wait 13 days.

I'm waiting since 13 days!! Is it normal?

Are you sure that inspector are also contributors? On SS too? I don't like this idea, I think that it's not serious because there's a big conflict of interest. Who are the inspectors on Fotolia? I find them not so enlightened in their choices.... :-\ ::)

My last review took exactly one month. I have about same sales as on Canstock.

Maybe it's better think about Canstock if they are faster...can I ask you how many images you have in your portfolio on Canstock and on Veer?
I have only 680 images on Shutterstock (illustrations, Shutterstock is the only place where I upload regularly and the only place that I like totally...except for the property model relase that I submit for every hand drawn illustration  :-[), maybe I have too little images to sell on Canstock or on Veer...

My dear friend is waiting since 1 june  :o, terrible. I hope that then they are a little bit faster...I don't like to know that my picture will be online...soon or later  :) I hope to know if and when.  ???
I like the site, I didn't know about this time for the review and now I don't know what I'll do in the future but...what about sales?
Is it worth it?

Is it possible? 10 days and still wait for my first 10 images....if the time is always so long I don't know how is possible stay on Veer. How many time to have a big portfolio if they are so slow??? :-[ ::) ???

I have seen all the images. Well the first one is incredible, the others aren't the kind of illustration that I like but they are good...of course (politicaly correct, I hope  ;))

I thought to do a face with floral and fruit too, like Arcimboldo picture. Now I finish this christmas illustration (so banal...) and then I start  :)

Simply, doing a normal search, I didn't find them first   :o
Wow, The first one is wonderful...(I haven't seen the others yet), this is a great inspiration for me. Finally  :)
Thanks a lot for this search.

Maybe, it's because I don't speak english well  :-\
I didn't wanted discredit other people work but do a general consideration about Is policy about some kinds of illustrations, like raster (that aren't accepted on Is...and this is really difficult to understand for me...) or eps8 that I think is an obsolete format for vectors  ;)
Excuse me if I don't speak always well  :-[

On this forum there aren't so many illustrators. Can we try to get along enen if we don't have the same opinion?
A virtual handshake? :)

I don't tell they aren't good I only tell that aren't so incredible. There are some wonderful artist for vectors and 3D works but there aren't raster a lot. IS isn't interested in raster illustrations. My favourite vectors are on Is, Shutterstock and other agencies too

This is the kind of work that I love:

http://www.shutterstock.com/gallery-352063p1.html#id=70797664

I do only few vectors, I do raster and I don't think I'm better than someone else. I hate who think so.
Only I try to make better and better and when I look for an ispiration I don't look on IS. That's all.
If you want to feel better, this is one of my vectors:

 But really I don't understand why it's a problem if I have a different opinion from you ::) ::) ::) ::) ::) :-X :-X :-X

On iStock illustrator forum we still hear the same thing when contributor ask if we can expect EPS10 for 2011. They say that EPS8 is the only format that doesn't require Illustrator (it can be opened with other softwares). So they stick with the compatibility issue for this.

.ai format too  8)

IStock used to be the place for great illustration, many of the best guys were exclusive there. I guess falling behind has a lot to do with not taking eps8 (?)


 :D :D :D It's a joke  ;), very nice. So great that they are invisible.  :D :D ;)
