but the classic worst recently was a guy with a GoPro, driving down the street in Saigon or someplace similar, shooting time lapse through the windscreen, and uploading each as an individual image. They are fuzzy and terrible, but also hundreds if not thousands of images. I doubt that he will get more sales than if he had taken 2 good shots and uploaded them.

do you have a link to that portfolio?


It's been linked many times under spamfolio and on SS too. I'm not sure if it's OK to post the link here, but it's not anyone on the forums.  :)

Some people call out spam for multiple images, similar images, but for example, here's what I'm calling as spam, not just picking on people for their personal choices and how many of something they upload. Yes I like singles and a few of any setup, while others do well uploading dozens of well thought out variations. The later is not spam... this is!  :(

Don't really understand how they get unsharp pics of bird behind glass door approved either (bottom P1).

Not sure i believe that.  My older stuff generally sells more than newer.  Its fairly common as well for an older image thats never previously sold to suddenly come to life.

Confirmed. Even newer stuff is better in terms of image quality and design, but sells very badly.

I disagree here, this month by far has been doing very well for me. And my new stuffs too sold very well.

There might be some algorithm change as SS always gives a shock surprise. :)

That's terrible and was and still is? The bird? ID 1,404,274,253, while my latest is 1,541,339,921 but May was 1,395,085,925 - July 1,433,084,726 so the birds were accepted between May and July 2nd. Blurred lights, which at least four are the identical shot, cropped - 1,475,614,787 before September I believe.

When was the new policy announced? August. So he slipped some past.

In shutterstock all contributors are equal but some are more equal than others...he probably has the golden "go straight past review" ticket.
