Shutterstock.com / Re: Contributor page's new design
« on: June 02, 2022, 03:39 »
If you want to complain about new view, Shutterstock has a special place for this. You need to click your portfolio icon/avatar in upper right corner, and a menu comes out. There, you can click "Leave feedback". You can leave low rating, but there is also space for comments.

Please leave feedback, this may help them see the problem.

Here is a list of complaints to copy and paste if you don't feel like writing:

1. No sorting by file ID or date.
2. Thumbnails smaller than before.
3. Thumbnails are always square. I can't see if I sold horizontal or vertical photo.
4. Less assets visible on single page. More clicking and scrolling to see full earnings.

Alternate version, not too spam them with identical text:

1. Image thumbnails are too small. They were larger in old view.
2. All thumbnails are square. I don't know which photo I sold.
3. I need SORTING by asset ID or upload date.
4. In old view I could see more thumbnails without scrolling. Why the small box in the middle?

One more version:
Thumbnails are too tiny and always square. They used to be bigger and now I cannot identify sold photo, because they are square and most photos are horizontal or vertical.
There is still no sorting by new, or sorting by asset ID, or sorting by upload date.
The earnings box or window that opens on the screen is too small. It shows less sold photos than before.

I tweeted a question to 123RF. Maybe if a few persons from this thread like the tweet it gets noticed by their social media team?

I got a few refunds from 11-13 years ago. Is that even legal?

Do you also have no earning reports in 123RF since March 4, 2022?

Does anyone suffer from terrible lagging issue in DeepMeta? Especially while scrolling a batch file list?

Down, down, down.

123RF / Re: Sudden decrease in sales mid-October
« on: December 01, 2020, 04:44 »
They said they corrected the error. For me it seems that after adjusting the October sales, November still has the error. Or is it just low sales? How was your November compared to previous months? It was 45-50% of September and October for me.

123RF / Sudden decrease in sales mid-October
« on: October 23, 2020, 03:02 »
Is it only me, or did sales suddenly decrease after October 14?
In October 15-21 I had 25% of sales compared to earlier week, and 17% of sales compared to random September week. That's an unprecedented drop.

How are your earnings during epidemic? Comparable to last year?

Anyone has problem with FTP processing right now?
I uploaded vectors, but the button to process them ("Next") doesn't seem to be working today.

Edit: it started working after ~6 hours, so it must have been temporary.

Is there any way to export Inkscape illustration to EPS with semi-transparent objects (fill color opacity set somewhere in the middle)?

Inkscape tutorials claim that EPS does not support transparency. EPS10 seems to support transparency and Adobe Illustrator users can export files with transparency. Any chance that I can do that in Inkscape as well?

Bigstock is always "working on the issue"


Some of the images may be his, but many are stolen. I reported some. It's an Indian teenager.

So... Can anyone share actual royalty paid by Shutterstock to music contributors? Because it's all very vague.

What is the current smartest way of including metadata in EPS created in Inkscape?

What's with $0.15, $0.16, $0.18 Subscription Plan royalties? (before tax)

5-6% of SS revenue.

Poland: down.

I wouldn't be surprised if there was another referendum.

123RF / Bad
« on: November 25, 2010, 10:01 »
That's bad. I shoot 18mpix, but quite frequently downsize to 4-5mpix. Sometimes it's necessary, to keep the good quality. For example in landmark interiors it's often not allowed to used tripods. I shoot ISO 800 with IS then, but image needs to be downsized to look good.

Please note that industry leader iStock, requires only 2mpix and Shutterstock requires 4mpix in general, but 2.5mpix for veterans.
