Recently I got rejection for Intellectual property violation but I didn't find this on link you provided. I made animation about new cryptocurrency, I animated just name of cryptocurrency not logo. I found many of this on other stock sites and two on Adobe's page too. Weird. I didn't upload again. I respect reviewers decisions.

 it's to late for Similar Content Policy dear Shutterstock. You have been years behind

By chance I came across this article on wine from June last year in the Smithsonian magazine:


I think that their use of a free photo from Pixabay (pity that the meniscus of the wine is not horizontal!) also tells us that decining sales of traditional microstock may also have to do with 'free'. Before 'free', reputable magazines relied on SS etc as their first port of call for images. Now they first go to 'free' and if they can't find what they want, they then go to the regular MS agencies.

I have no doubt that many other image users also do similar. (No doubt the reason that SS and Adobe see fit to sponsor Pixabay with ads...which suggest that if the client can't find what he wants at Pixabay they should go to SS or Adobe).

Who upload on Pixabay images and videos and gives them away for free?

looks good not better. But better than Many others including shutterstock and adobe. I began uploading videos to istock as well. So far so good. These numbers are absolutely better than other all in each counts.

Good luck

Thank you Adobe <3 and people like Mat!

There is a possible issue with uploading doubles (identical) that can happen.

When I upload clips (ftp) it sometimes uploads the same file 2-3-4 times. If I have a batch of mixed subjects I sometimes submit part of it and a couple of days later I submit the rest.  Assuming a 20K+ portfolio of the OP I can see how doubles can be missed or unintentionally overlooked when submitting large batches. This could be a Super honest mistake.

I am a HUGE Shutterstock fan and trust them 100%.  If this is what went down or a different honest mistake, Im sure they will be check it and let it slide.

Come on guys... have some faith in this company.  Last night I checked my entire 9.5K portfolio for doubles and found 1 (deleted). I will double check again just to make sure.

And how do you check for doubles? Hmmm....

Are you serious? Basically you answered yourself. Try searching on others agencies. BTW I stop uploading to this agency. Really, you need to try other agencies too. Good luck

Works for me now :)

Adobe Stock / Adobe contributor page - 503 Service Unavailable
« on: August 02, 2019, 04:20 »

Adobe contributor page don't work for me today (Central Europe). Adobe Stock page works fine.

503 Service Unavailable

No server is available to handle this request.

Anyone else?

Very sorry to hear that.

When you uploaded all this duplicated files?

As I know reviewers reject this kind of uploads with this reason:similar content

Or this are very old uploads?

Hope you resolve this quickly and start uploading again by the rules.

Good luck!


I just get this message when I try upload images ,,IMG_1556.jpg had upload errors. Learn more about submission,, no problem with uploading to any other site like SS....

Add name, describe your image and try again.

Steadily climbing.

Istock spam guy

I received the cam and tested it well. Now the first 7 4K vidoes have been submitted to several agencies. Going 4k is certainly a journey itself. My laptop did not work with Premier Pro and everytime I tried to export Mov, it crashed. The mp4 format export was too slow. Its an old laptop with 8GB RAM. Switched from premier pro to hitfilm express. It did good job. The denoise feature is missing. Everything else is lite and good.  I am using free version which is full studio. Works well with my laptop. The newest issue I am dealing with keywording videos as stocksubmitter did not embed keywords in videos like it does for photos. For now, dealing manually and filling on the sites itself. I hope to figure out the better way of dealing with keywords on videos.

I really don't mind pay for play, I don't mind paying once for a program, but the current cloud situation for Adobe products is nothing more than extortion. I dropped them a while back.

I have use adobe software only for my stock work. Adobe agency was last year my best agency, this year on third place and still falling.. total disappointment!  But now I thinking to leave adobe software too. I earn at adobe few bucks a day with 10k images!? Big joke!
