SS appear to have a new undocumented customer feature.  In addition to "Authentic" we now have "AI Predicted Quality".

Seems to be rolling it to images this weekend.

Nothing from contributor support about it, its not showing on all images yet.

I looked at a few of mine and my best sellers are often on 6 or 7 out of 10 whereas others that are out of focus or badly exposed are getting 9s.
Images that sell a lot aren't always high and images that have never sold sometimes are. On my stuff at least it appears totally random.

So, is the same famous SS AI that thinks trees are image noise and clouds need model releases now deciding how good an image is?

...wonder how long before they offer a "Filter quality lower than X" or "Less money for quality lower than X" appears.

Hopefully this isn't too accurate as it will be the end for me  :o

Hopefully customers won't be using that as a search qualification....I'm guessing it's not very "accurate".

Hopefully customers won't be using that as a search qualification.

Not as a search qualification (at least as long as it's not a selectable option in the search), but probably as a buying qualification.
Think about it: You want to buy a photo, you search for one you like and the site you want to buy it from says the "quality" was 6/10. Never mind that by "quality" they don't actually mean "technical quality", but some "visual appeal".  Would you buy the image? I know I would assume the image was of poor quality and had technical flaws like noise, soft focus or bad exposure and search for a suitable replacement with better "quality".  :(

If at least they would name it different. Calling it "quality" is really misleading.


Either way, I can't see this new feature. Apparently people say that it will show when you have your langauge set to English, but Shuterstock won't let me and always loads in German, no matter how often I select English.

It's not to do with selecting English.  My port is in English and I'm not seeing it yet.

Thank you, I also reloaded, switched languages, looked at sold images. Like everything Microstock, someone imagines something and guesses and that becomes a factoid.  :) We don't know, and that's my best answer.

I asked but got a non-answer. Do we have to be logged in as a buyer? Maybe someone here will read and understand the difference between not logged in, contributor login and a buyer login.

With that, I just looked and I see nothing on any of my images. Following a link from someone on the forum, sometimes their image had that, sometimes it didn't.

It's an AI rating, we don't know, but I think most of the guesses and comments are reasonable. It's meaningless and we can all hope that buyers don't see the rating as a valid appraisal of the image quality. I'd say this rating is probably as reliable as the reviews. (take it from there)  ::)

Logged in as a buyer now, i just visited as a guest.

Its not on all (most?) photos yet but is starting to appear on more and more both on my personal profile and random searches of others.

Its displayed to buyers so they do see it.  Ultimately whether its the intent or not, they're now seeing a "how good is this image" rating which may well affect if they buy it or not.

At the moment i'm seeing them in MS Edge browser but the same image in Chrome (odd as they're both now Chromium based) and Firefox it doesn't show at all.

In Chrome and Firefox, viewing the source shows "\"predicted-quality-filter-image-srp\",\"exp-500-undiscovered-search-filter\"" so its there, just not rendering on those browsers.
It doesn't show in IE.

Wondering if this is some sort of ranking system that's been in use a while and is only now displaying due to an accidental code change.
