Adobe Stock / I cannot see my recent photos in portfolio
« on: February 24, 2020, 01:21 »
Hello Everyone!
I've uploaded about 90 photos last week and they were all approved. The problem is that I cannot see those photos in my portfolio nor they are coming up by searching them on adobe stock with any keywords possible. Is this normal or some kind of error?

Thanks in advance!

2 / This is all we got - A SORRY
« on: September 20, 2019, 15:40 »
There were a number of licenses from one of our distribution partners, Canva, that were refunded on the August 2019 royalty statements and then re‑reported at a corrected amount.

There were two reasons for this:
Some Canva licenses of Essentials images were reported using the incorrect currency (USD instead of AUD). These were initially reported on the June 2019 statement, and corrected on the August 2019 statement.

Throughout 2018 to July 2019, a number of other Canva licenses were reported incorrectly to us at double the actual revenue. This resulted in an over‑payment of royalties to contributors. These were corrected on the August 2019 statement.
In both examples, contributors impacted by this would see the original license removed and the correct re‑license amount reported, which will be lower than the original license. All refunds appear in red on the royalty statement.

If you are seeing a number of refunds associated to Canva, we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and for not notifying you in advance. Were looking at our processes to try to ensure we can avoid this kind of issue in the future.

3 / Most Popular Tab is gone back to Relevant
« on: April 10, 2018, 03:47 »
Hi Everyone!
I've just noticed that SS have changed their Most Popular tab back to Relevant. How do you think this will impact on sales. We were getting used to this change but they've reversed that changed just now.

Your inputs will be helpful for newbies like to understand the impact of this change.

« on: September 18, 2017, 10:51 »
Yes you heard that correct, here we are working day and night for years to produce stock photos and shutterstock security is so week that you can download the image on this website by giving original image URL: shutterdowner dot kom

Is there any way to stop this nonsense?

9 / Shutterstock Behaving strage again
« on: December 27, 2016, 13:23 »
Hi All,
I uploaded 94 images on 25th and 85 are approved without any email or notification, one of those were sold few hours ago but when I click on that image or any other image it giving me this error.

Hi All,
Shutterstock have the new option for buyers to select 2 images pack for $29. Can you estimate how much a contributor will get in that case?

We are normally getting $1.88 if buyer sign up for 5 images pack but this is new case.

Thank you all in advance

12 / 2986 View but No Sales
« on: September 26, 2016, 12:01 »
Hi All,
I've about 600 images on alamy and I've received 2986 views - 6 zoom but never got any sale, Is it still keywords fault or just the Alamy slow sales?


All of sudden today, when I try to access my port it is giving me this strange message: This contributor has no active images in their portfolio.

SS is actually going to ruin their brand t give fotolia more changes to become number 1.. Anyone else having the same issue?

Adobe Stock / Fotolia will soon cross SS in Top Tier list
« on: July 11, 2016, 10:11 »
I've seen a great improvement in terms of sale and price of each sale I get as a contributor on FT and this is far better than what I get on SS. The sales on SS are also dead slow these days. I guess this is happening since the Adobe took over the company. The poll results on right can surprise us in coming days..

General - Top Sites / Is it possible at all?
« on: January 09, 2016, 06:10 »
Hi All,
I've an important question here, I am new into the stock world and I've been following the theft reports on this forum. By any means, is it possible that your work matches with someone ACCIDENTALLY and they report you based on assumption that it is stolen?

Thank you!

Hi All,
Recently, I've uploaded some USD images to SS & they were accepted but today when I sent them some Canadian dollar photos they rejected them based on Intellectual Property issue. This is strange and I want to submit these images again. Is there anything special I can do to get them accepted?

Thanks in advance....

Need your feedback about my work:

Thank you in advance!

Hi All,
I've been uploading quite a lot these days to fotolia & acceptance rate is also very good but I've never seen my images in the Newest Uploads category on fotolia. Can anybody explain this to me, who's images are seen there & is there any impact on sales of these images?

I wanted your opinion about How Many Sales I should expect IF my image is shown in newest files on FT?
I understand there is no guarantee but what do you think based on your experience.
