I don't understand why Shutterstock has a login captcha. It seems like a waste of time. Captcha's are usually used for example when signing up as a new user on a web site or posting a comment on a blog to ensure the user is not a bot. But when you have already put in your login details to login to a site that already confirms you are not a bot if you have a username and password already. How could one be a bot if they are a member of a site already? It makes no sense. Shutterstock should remove the captcha from their login dialogue box. No other stock site has this either.

I think it's to prevent apps that gather stats logging in

I hate captcha too ! At least it was numbers easy to figure out but now captcha with words and letters are back on my browser. That's give me headaches i need to refresh it many times before get something readable.

Except the various MS stats programmes i use all bypass that by going to the mobile site that sets a cookie and no captcha.

2 factor auth would be far better.  It's not as if SS is secure anyway as every time you use FTP your main site password is send in the clear over the local network and internet.
