Shutterstock.com / Help uploading raster illustration
« on: November 11, 2016, 05:46 »
I have some watercolor paintings that i wish to upload to SS. As i understand they do not accept trace vector anymore so i need to post them as jpeg.
Can anyone help me please whit the requirements ? What size is best for the file and what do i need to do different  than uploading vectors?

Thank you

My vector files had never sold well  at the start. That was a constant and still is in the three years that i upload on different sites. But after few months thing change , and begin to add constant downloads and i may add a decent revenue . My port is  not a very big one  i concentrate more on quality and detail, at least i try XD.
I was wandering if this is a common fact or is something that i m not doing right.

PS.From my personal observation i see that  if you upload a small batch is very quickly  buried in  a see of new uploads. Only in few hours you will find yourself easily on page twenty or more.

General Stock Discussion / Best time to post for Christmas
« on: November 01, 2016, 18:47 »
I was wondering if someone can help me figuring out how the timing works in posting vector art especially on SS.
First what is the best time to start posting art for holidays. So if Christmas is in 25 dec. i was thinking starting from 20/25 nov . Is this ok or is too soon.
Is there an accepted formula for all holidays or all have their timings?

I m fairly new at this and i appreciate any help. Thank you!

I created multiple silhouettes based of my drawings.How do i upload this drawings...individually or do i have to compile them in a single image ?

General Stock Discussion / Istok exclusivity help
« on: April 06, 2013, 12:16 »
I recently reach the requirements for I stock exclusivity.Normally i don't think its a good idea to go exclusive but i notice that the files that sells very well on i stock don't sell so well on other agency.Its ok if i remove this files from other sites and only use them on i stock or i have to remove all my files even i do not use them on i stock?It is ok to keep to separate sets of images one for i stock exclusivity and one for other sites?

I want to make some photoshop tutorials for my youtube channel.Obviously i need some pictures to work with.Can i use pictures from microstock sites ?

I see that SS have over 16 mil stock photos.How many are vectors...does anyone know?
I am asking because the demand for stock photo is much lower compared to the numbers of stock photo currently on the marcket.Is this the case with vectors also ?
