And believe me there will be still a lot of people with active accounts on SS in six months who will keep moaning and comparing monthly progress from $0.96 to $1.34. It's definetely time for them to remove Business and Healthcare categories from uploader and rename their remaning ones to specify BBQ grill manufacturers and breeds of cats.

"D.Trump promises more earnings for Americans vs SS promises less earnings"

Just try to imagine Trump as Shutterstock CEO

it's time for one smart agency (maybe Adobe) to introduce 80-90% image based exclusive royalties and with that one move "destroy" all others 0.5 cent per download agencies with quality.

good quality images there, the rest or rejected images elsewhere

Where do you get 5c and consequent doom for Mstock (which has been imminent for the 6 years I've been doing this) from?

New pricing plans, as in, smaller image packs means less On Demand Downloads, thus less earnings. Way to go Shutterstock!

I'm not signing some stupid petition.

Everyone should have some pride and pull their portfolios from Shutterstock.

The notification says quite clearly that percentage royalties will only be applied to the two new plans of 10 and 50 images so in actuallity you will earn more during the trial period instead of your usual sub rate.

The danger is of course that this is adopted across all subs upto 750 images after the trial period in which case earnings will be reduced.

And then what? If I had to pull my port from any agency that announces some new plan, I could quit microstock altogether.
Not defending SS here, but there's hardly a decent agency left.

Neither am I. Sounds like a new plan only in aid for the shareholders.

Just bitterly repeating what so many people said about signing the iStock petition. Despite repeated warnings that other agencies would be watching our reaction and would follow suit with 2 cent royalties. So here we go.

They gotta pay for that second floor they just started renting in the Empire State Building somehow.

Could you imagine how great a company Shutterstock could be if they respected where their content came from as much as they indulge themselves? If only they chose to pay contributors fairly instead of blowing ridiculous amounts of their profits on excessive luxuries like some of the most expensive office space in the world...

To really do it they have to start with editorials.

Isn't that just the way capitalism should work, that the ones that happen to be in the right place, in the right time and made a move get all the luxuries while others gather crumbs? It's all in vain since there will always be someone somewhere who will work for almost nothing out of desperation and deliver the same quality. It happening in the whole world, in every industry. Why would microstock be an exception?

Sadly you are correct......the internet amongst other things is increasing the gap between winners and losers we are moving towards a super rich vs peasants world. Marx was right!

yes but history showed also the the rich at one point run away faster because poor got taking them with gun.....second war began because millions of germans didn't have nothing zero while a bunch of people had all.....we live in a world where mediocre football players gain 30 million euro a year in china while china workers earn 100 dollar.....the limiti is reaching fast...trump putin looks very similar to those who flame the masses in the 1932..

shutterstock is ending the same way stock. but the content is also much worst...lot of scammers, spammers...million of ugly files...model and food photography so * poor.....who ids buying this stuff?
i mean if i were somebody who have a business i will go directly to stocksy...if i not even have 10 euro to pay an image for a project what kind of business is this?

in my opinion there is pac for a real cooperative of talented stockers to recreate something similar to stock or ss in the first year. don't know the cost of such a project.

i was telling production cost are so low in eastern europe that a lot of people do stock..with this pace the only country left to produce stock will be some remote african region....even begging in the street is getting much profitable than microstok...they are not ashamed? luckily those people like everybody will die with all the money they earn with them.

i went to the forum to look..

i am even more surprised that big sellers like sjlocke,etc are not saying anything to this.
here, i am waiting for jo-anne, and of course, sjlocke,etc.. to tune in.

the only thing i read worth shouting is the one who was smart enough to say,
give us an OPT-OUT.

perharps, we should get that choice.
