Hi there! I have a fantastic news for all microstockers! If you make a vector you should try this script.
Stock Master can automatically prepare vector files for microstocks. It scans a vector file and fixes mistakes such as open paths, ghost shapes, bitmap, symbols, brushes, effects, etc.
You can free download this script on mai-tools.com


Hello!

New version of Stock Master Pro script is available:
Saving algorithm optimized for new Shutterstock rules.
"...Option Use Artboards is not available now. Starting on 04/20/2020, you will no longer be able to use this option when uploading vectors..."

Use Hello Shutterstock options in the script to save EPS files for Shutterstock according the new rules. Stock Master Pro script will turn off Use Artboards and will add backgrounds, if needs be.

We optimized files naming also. There is not "_01" postfix while saving from one Artboard only.

Is this thread going to be resurrected every couple of years? Even my vintage wine is younger than this thread.

It would not have been resurrected without this joke. Thanks  ;D
Now a dialogue can begin here.

18
that's a shame - must admit I haven't tried it myself, I just figured it was possible

I use Vector Inspector for open paths and such. Its free I think, don't have a link handy but google will find it. It installs as an Extension in your Window Menu.


Unfortunately Vector Inspector does not work in the new Adobe Illustrator CC 2017. They are making a new plugin now - Vector Inspector Pro http://roman-volkov.blogspot.com/2017/07/vector-inspector-donate.html
You can free download the demo version. Development is not over yet.

What size jpeg?

Sorry  :)
I did not see at once...
It is better to write in support  - [email protected]

Now script can create JPEG with artboard size. Using resolution 72 dpi for this. If you use a resolution 300 dpi that will be more than an artboard. For example: artboard 1200x1200 px and 300 dpi > JPEG 5000x5000 px

The function for setting the picture size is being developed. It will be in the new version Stock Master Pro

I'm rather new to selling vector stock but have about 20 pieces in my portfolio as I try to feel my way into the business.

I'm trying to figure out what types of things will sell and what is just a waste to spend time on.

I sell a few things but just pennies now because I have so few images. The good images I create take time to make so it is a slow process building my portfolio. I want to be unique and find the small niches. I look through the vector sites and what is "popular" but I don't want to copy things, either.

My wish list is to figure out what will actually sell well. So my question is what do successful vector artists do to find out the trends and know what is useful to create? How did you get started in figuring out what sells?

You should find your own way. Work hard and try a lot of things. And your time will come
