Wondered why I was having so many sales for this and then realised it was featured on the front page.

Great job Litifeta!  I've got a few of those ready to upload myself, but your color pop is spectacular. 

Make sure your keywords are solid, and that should sell for you for a very long time at SS!   ;)

Congratulations, 
Being in the lightboxes also increases sales.  I have 3 in at the moment and my sales have rocketed without even uploading anything in the last week.

Very nice shot. Congratulations!

Out of curiosity would you mind sharing download numbers for that image? How much did it go up?

yeah nice shot, and well done getting on the front page.

how many sales is a lot??.. . I am curious how many sales an image CAN have in a day on shutterstock.  I am not sure what my record is, but it is somewhere between 10-20... never over 20 though... but then again my images aren't super sellers either.

Hi,

How do you know that your pictures have been selected for a lightbox on SS?

You have to look at the lightboxes and see if you are in any of them.

I am confused ... as I submitter I cannot see the lighboxes, do you have to be a buyer?

You have to go to the buying part of the site - not the submitting part - to see the front page image and lightboxes (which are located at the bottom of the page).

Wonderful shot - makes me want to do something like this too :)  Oh, and I must break into shutterstock - they thwarted me three times, but I am ready for more beating. :D

They have a babies light box right now and - no - I don't have a baby in the lightbox, but I had to check because one of my baby shots that never caught on started to sell every day.  I wonder if lightboxes bring more attention to the whole theme?

And congrats Litefida.  Nice to be recognized.

Who decides which image goes to which lightbox? do you apply for a lightbox participation or do the shutterstock staff do that occasionaly when looking for new images?

The images are chosen by SS staff.
