I got quite a surprise this morning when checking my Shutterstock stats...

ONE single sale image for a commission of 90.60$. I am really wondering what these licenses are, but seeing high numbers like this from Shutterstock is definetly extremely encouraging!!! :)

Don't think I've ever had anything more than $28 for an EL.  Would be interesting to know what this was for?  Has anyone else had one?

Congratulations. I guess this is some sort of partner sale.

I got my first $90.60 on April 12th.   It was a good day!

The new sensitive uses license maybe?

Congrats. If you write to support, will they tell you what sort of license this is? It'd be nice to know...

I don't know what is going on at IS, but I like it.  As of today - the 2nd day of the month I have already earned more than last years 2 lowest months.

Modified:  - everyone figured out that I meant to say "SS" right?  I can't foresee bragging about IS in the near future :)

We've figured that it's not the sensitive use license as some people who've gotten those amounts are opted out of that.

I could sure use a few of those would make the push to the $3000 tier a little more bearable :p

I've had quite a few $18 dollar sales in the "single and other downloads" category, but not a $90 dollar one. I wonder if it is indeed the"sensitive use" license. My question to people who had them - is your portfolio "opted in" for the sensitive use?

Edit: Anita posted the reply to my question a minute earlier:)

When I wrote here that I hadn't had an 18$ sale yet  I got a couple very soon afterwards so I'd just like to say that I haven't had a 90$ one yet :)

I'll echo Elena's question.  Anita, I know we determined the $18 sales were not sensitive use, but I haven't read that about the $90 and $75 sales.  Like Elena, I haven't had any of those, and I am opted out of SU also. 

Congrats to those of you who are getting those big sales!  If they are not SU, I hope to join you soon :)

Anita, what is Harry to you?

If he is your cousin,maybe we should ask him what is going on, with our single sales on SS...  ;D ;)

Ok now I am really interested if photogrpahers who had 75-90 dollar sales have opted in their portfolio for sensitive use. I didn't since I have to protect my models, but I also have (and am still producing) many images with no people in them. If these images would be at disadvantage because my portfolio is opted out, I'd rather not give them to Shutterstock - I have many other channels to distribute them.

Har har :D  I do believe he's my cousin twice removed on my father's side of the family.  It would be nice if I could take advantage of his wizarding ways to give us all these fantabulous high dollar downloads.

Lisa I could've sworn that the person on SS that got the $70 ones that they weren't opted into sensitive use.  I'll have to go back and look at that thread again to see if I misread it.

*edit*

Re-read the thread and they didn't mention at all if they were opted into that sensitive use license or not.  It was in fact the ones with the $18 ones there was one on there also for $28 where the guy is also opted out of sensitive use.

Thanks a lot for taking the time to check on that Anita :)

I don't keep up with the SS forums, so there could be things said there that haven't filtered over to microstockgroup yet. 

I'd love to get those big sales, but if they do turn out to be sensitive uses, I'll have to pass.  Like Elena, I can't take that risk with my models.

I am opted in, but I only got $18 sales.

No problem.  I'm opted in as well but if I were to photograph models (not likely to happen) then I would also be opted out.  They could use my illustrations for all the sensitive use they'd like.  I've never seen an SOD above $4.75 though.  And tripping through the new version of the site hasn't really offered any clues as to what those would be either.
