Shutterstock.com / Re: SS Dashboard Fix
« on: June 03, 2017, 17:36 »
I'm wondering if there is an update for the script for downloads. It has stopped working for me a while ago and I really miss it. The SS latest downloads is garbage. Just a quick glance at Deymos' script and you see instantly if there's been any downloads.

I've never heard the term 'inner circle' countries.

It's a means of categorisation developed by the linguist Braj Kachru in dividing the globe into convenient sectors according to the degree of English usage. For example the 'inner circle countries' are countries where the dominant (or first) language is English - eg Australia, New Zealand, US, Canada, England. The 'outer circle countries' are nations in which many were English colonies and so English plays a major role in some aspects of peoples lives (government use, educational use) - eg Singapore, the Philippines, South Africa, India, Pakistan. The 'expanding circle countries' are ones where English is regarded as a foreign language - eg Japan, Korea, Russia, China, most of Europe.

I can't remember who kindlyh pointed me to this clip on that subject:

That was quite amusing. Good educational value to.

I wouldn't normally correct anyone on a forum but too meaning also has a double 'o'. Sorry, just couldn't help myself 😂😂😂

It's now showing, I will be glad to see the end of Photodune, they weren't worth the hassle for me.

My balance has been reset to $0 but I haven't received a notification of payment yet. I also checked my PayPal account and there's nothing there as yet.

I received two emails for the double amount and then one for the correct amount.

It's also broken from here, but upload seems to work OK, and I haven't noticed any decline on sales.
Of course I can't see the sales on the contributor page, but the phone app is working OK.

I can upload via FTP but can't find them on the home page to finalise categories, etc.. I don't have the app. I will try to find it.

Edit: Found it and have finalised my uploads... Thanks!

Seems it's not broken for everyone. Maybe they're trying to shut off uploads for a while  :o

Is anyone else having trouble with the page loading. The only thing that is showing for me is my earnings and the added script for downloads. I'm trying to upload some images but it won't show up on the page.

61
If I delete a photo from a collection, I wont lose it totally from lightroom will I?

You can right click and "remove from collection" but don't click on the photo and hit delete or it will delete it completely.

I have probably uploaded 50 files in the last 12 months, so I am not that surprised. And the 2 cent downloads dońt motivate me to upload more.

All agencies prefer the active uploaders.

I have also stopped uploading. I noticed a 1c sale in the latest report!! Although they usually just beat SS for me.

63
I love using the app but I've just noticed some figures are wrong. Tallies for some images from iStock are way out... at first I thought it would be iStock's fault but I've just noticed Bigstock has a wrong balance also. Just one particular image I went back and counted the number of downloads on the site (9), the app says only 2.

Has anyone else noticed wrong figures for downloads?

4000 files, 72 dollars. Below payment Threshold.

OUCH!   That's terrible!  Especially knowing the quality of your portfolio.   I haven't checked mine yet, but not too hopeful if this is what you got.  Really does look like the end is near for istock.

I'm also shocked! With under 500 files I made half of what you did and I only have an average port. I also average 60c per download. I've only been contributing for 14 months so that must have something to do with it. I'm not saying my earnings are good... far from it.

600 images portfolio.

Jan: 23 sales for 5$
Feb: 12 sales for 3$
Mar: 6 sales for 0.83$

I guess it's time to close my account before I have to pay for them hosting my pictures.

Did you download your royalty statement? Those are not your only sales are they?! I have less than 600 images and have more sales than that.

My portfolio is mainly travel/nature/wildlife, thus I'm not expecting big figures...but the trend is something to worry about, especially for the average 0.14 RPD and low volume

I have a little bit of everything also, I'm still surprised that is your only sales, including subscriptions, Getty, etc. I only get a handful of credit sales each month.

I find their rejections are all over the place. Images accepted everywhere are rejected and often they just reject the whole batch. Not sure why I bother with them really.

Well, it IS a nice surprise... apparently we will be paid in May!!

In case anyone missed the email... if it's under $20 they will only pay by PayPal so make sure your account is up to date.

14000+ files are gone! I'm top author with empty port  ;D

I can understand them deleting mine but when it's their top authors it's just beyond belief!

Mine is finally gone but has anyone received their payout yet?

PhotoDune / Re: What a "nice" surprise
« on: April 02, 2017, 18:14 »
Well they haven't deleted mine yet but I'm pretty sure they will as I only have just over 100 photos and have only had a few sales. I had only just started uploading there but I have had a recent sale.

73
I've had another one just now. Same place one second apart.

74
I've always wondered what's going on there because it happens to me every now and then. I also thought it might be someone avoiding an EL.

I came across this a couple of days ago... disregard the first half page. I'm not saying the pics are bad quality but I don't understand why you would do this.
https://www.shutterstock.com/search?page=1&searchterm=lapwing%20plover&sort=popular&image_type=all&safe=true&search_source=base_search_form&language=en

If you find that strange, how about this: https://www.shutterstock.com/g/netsay?search_source=base_gallery&language=en&page=1&sort=newest&safe=true

27 pages of clouds in a port of 2,010 pages of similars.

That really takes the cake! After the clouds it's exactly the same with a grey background, then goes to a white background and on and on...
