Shutterstock.com / Should I be nervous or just lucky?

Nor I. This sort of thing happened about 4 years ago even though SS paid many of us for a bunch of illegal purchases. If its on the up and up I'll be very happy. If not, we're having astounding sales.

I had a $112 sale on Friday from what appears to be Brazil. I just got another $112 sale from same location. Coincidence or trouble?

Thanks all. Been at it since 2005 and still get excited when I get a new BDE.

Just got a $112 SD from an image that sold only one time for $0.36 in three years its been on SS.  I commented in a different thread yesterday that I had only one D/L all day and now there selling again. Go figure.  The SD's and OD's have been great.....thank you SS!

When looking the 'most popular' files in my port, they seemed to be flipping things around a little lately.  Last week it was heavily weighted towards new images.  This week it seems like the old good selling images are back to the top.  They must be tweaking things a bit on the back end

To confirm, I did end up with just one d/l yesterday...getting a few this morning though and all older stuff like you said.

I use it all the time. Especially when at work. My company blocks too much, including MSG. Thanks Paul.

Is it my imagination or have others notice a bit of a slide today. The last three days have been huge for me and today I've had one (1) D/L. Are they mixing it up again?

Could be very interesting. I'd like to see some shots.

Just ordered a G15. I can't believe I actually did it. I've been a Nikon user since the early 70 but couldn't find anything compared to it by Nikon. I'm going on vacation next month and didn't want to take my D300 and all the gear. Hope I made the right decision. Seven years since the last vacation and I wanted something my wife could use as well. Wish me luck!

Getting "damaged file-please resubmit" (GL), some never make it to the site even though the app appears to be uploading properly. Uploads to 123rf but unable to process it, they just disappear. I've had to use my regular FTP app and they upload fine. I'm using Mountain Lion latest ver. Thanks. BTW, great app, thanks again.

I think it has more to do with the file moving up in the search. I noticed this when I have a file that hasn't been D/L'd for awhile and then it gets a rare D/L, I'll start getting more.

No need for them to make such a drastic move any time soon. Their shares are on the climb....

The fact of it is almost everything we look at commercially has been photoshop'd to some degree. That's just the way it is. Shouldn't come as a surprise or a disappointment to those that like your stuff. It just shows your dual talent to capture and graphically design/edit. Enjoy the compliments and leave it at that.

I uploaded a bunch last week and their saying they need to be "tagged" before they can be "published". They are tagged...whats the deal?

I won't shoot myself in the foot to quickly. Being an optimism, I'll play the "wait and see" game like many will do. If it doesn't work to my satisfaction then I'll pull the plug.

It can be a little unsettling when a company goes Public for those that rely on a paycheck. I've seen it too many times. It's a power play for the shareholders....oh, and btw, hows your Apple shares doing? Scarey huh?

Shutterstock.com / Acceptance Ratio... does SS care
« on: January 29, 2013, 22:24 »
I always add a comment to any that I resubmit. Trying to "slide" them through could cause a problem. I've been with SS since 2005 and I can't remember anyone getting suspended for their acceptance ratio, at least not that I have heard. You should try to make some correction, even if minor, based on the rejection reason before resubmitting. I have resubmitted a few with no modification and they were accepted probably because another reviewer evaluated it.

This is the answer : It usually takes a day or two following the payment notice before the payment is fully processed and in your account.

Day 4....still waiting

Same here. Sent an email to support, "[email protected]" and it came back undeliverable.

Same here. Great month but the past few days have been strange, selling several images that haven't sold in years and one that has never sold before in 6 years. Weird...

I made the same mistake. Open the chat dialogue and ask support to do it for you.

Thanks...good to know

I realize that....the question is, is anyone getting EL's and are they worth the effort?

When you edit your unfinished submittals do you check the "Extended License Options"? I just noticed this and will need to go back and edit each image if it's worth the effort....any comments? It would be nice if they had a mass selection like the other sites. Getting tired of the 0.30 sales. Thanks....jp
