Probably they are getting feedback about their poor quality portfolio hence the similars policy.

« on: May 02, 2019, 07:32 »
Anyone else waiting to have last months earnings removed or is it just me?

https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/shutterstock-launches-ireland-office-300664878.html Really surprised they are going to spend money on Bigstock ....thought they'd have killed it off ages ago.

General Stock Discussion / Wemark hows it going
« on: April 28, 2018, 10:55 »
I've just uploaded a small batch of pics....suggest we use this thread to record whats happening and our experience of them...and use other threads to debate pros and cons.

Shutterstock.com / Shredded
« on: February 12, 2018, 14:09 »
Any one else got the shreddies brief? I'm normally not a one to overvalue my worth but $50 for a multinational's world wide campaign? Stunning!!!

Adobe Stock / Algorithm change?
« on: January 19, 2018, 03:35 »
For the first time in months by weekly ranking is higher than my all time. Algorithm change, conspiracy or have I just got lucky  :o

General Stock Discussion / Word of the day
« on: October 20, 2017, 06:37 »
"Verschlimmbesserung"

An attempted improvement that makes things worse than they already were. This is a very common German expression which has no good translation in English. It is pronounced "Fair-shleam-besser-oonk" (schlimmer = worse, besser = better).

Just had to share this when someone told me about it....will save me a lot of words!

General Stock Discussion / September Sales
« on: October 03, 2017, 04:15 »
October 3 and no one posted yet. Overall for me a mediocre month but not awful. Fotolia crashed spectacularly going awol for days....compensated for largely by Alamy coming up with nice sales. Fairly average for the rest though SS would have been down but for some SODS....feel like I dodged a bullet there. Not the big September bounceback I hoped for.

Crestock.com / Well I never!
« on: August 23, 2017, 05:09 »
Just had two sales notified by Crestock......out of my huge portfolio on there of 10 images!!! Expecting some sales from yay images anytime soon!

GLStock / Any signs of life?
« on: July 04, 2017, 04:40 »
Wondering if its worth starting to upload again.....sales currently totally dead for me at present.

Shutterstock.com / A million a week!!
« on: June 27, 2017, 06:34 »
"998,592 new stock images added this week" Just saw this on SS site....anyone know if they've topped a million yet? I sometimes think its a miracle I sell anything at all. (Then I look at the quality of whats being uploaded :o)

Shutterstock.com / Unexpected bonus
« on: May 03, 2017, 16:46 »
Just had notification of my payment for April....its exactly double what it should be....is it  just me?

Alamy.com / RF editorial
« on: March 21, 2017, 03:19 »
Alamy....Anyone had any sales on this...what kind of returns are you getting?

Shutterstock.com / Quarterly results
« on: November 04, 2016, 07:34 »
Third Quarter 2016 highlights as compared to Third Quarter 2015:
     
Financial Highlights

Revenue increase d 15% to $123.1 million

Income from operations increase d 40% to $11.3 million

Net income increase d 129% to $9.4 million

Adjusted EBITDA increase d 17% to $23.0 million

Key Operating Metrics     

Paid downloads increase d 8%

Revenue per download increased 5%

Image collection expanded 61% to 102.7 million images

Video collection expanded 64% to 5.4 million clips

Downloads up 8% so not very exciting.......Collection increased by an eyewatering 60% plus...how long can this go on? Sooner or later collection growth will stall surely. This time next year they would need 160m images to keep this up! (and in two years 256m!!)

Adobe Stock / Rejection Reasons
« on: October 06, 2016, 10:54 »
Just got some rejections from Fotolia./Adobe whilst I would rather have none at last they are giving sensible reasons....more progress.

123RF / Sales
« on: September 28, 2016, 02:30 »
Having terrible run of no sales is it just me and I'm having a bad run or maybe there a problem with the site

Adobe Stock / Nice Surprise
« on: September 25, 2016, 11:24 »
After not getting any sales for a few days checked the site and have in fact had a few in one case a pleasant 6.44. Seems my email notification is not working...any one else? wonder if its to do with syncing with adobe. As far as I know  al my email notifications remain switched on.

General Stock Discussion / Location for Editorials in open sea
« on: August 15, 2016, 02:28 »
I have some Editorial pics taken in open sea any ideas what I should do about location as I believe some sites require a town city etc. Will "north sea" do it or perhaps nearest port?

CanStockPhoto.com / Career Oportunities?

At one time maybe but with their current regime not close to 95% acceptance!

22
Hearing a lot about this to my simple mind you just enter the main keywords you think buyers will look for and sit back. But is there anything in this SEO stuff and if so what information/resources are out there to help?

Shutterstock.com / Changes at the top
« on: July 14, 2016, 15:37 »
"On July 11, 2016, Anshu Aggarwal, Chief Technology Officer of Shutterstock, Inc. (the Company), notified the Company of his decision to resign from his position, effective July 29, 2016, to spend more time with his family."

Draw your own conclusions ;-)

General Photography Discussion / After shot pro v3
« on: May 31, 2016, 02:22 »
I see this being advertised for a very low price...is it any good particularly for Raw conversions from Nikon (D7000). I'm still using Capture but fear it might fall over and its not supported now.

http://seekingalpha.com/pr/16475815-shutterstock-reports-first-quarter-2016-financial-results

Something for those that believe in facts rather than anecdotes. I'm surprised Adobe don't seem to be making any inroads the bad news for us contributors is that the portfolio growth still far exceeds earnings growth so more hard work to stand still but its not armageddon
