Very nice of you.

Though I must say it's sad that contributors are forced to come up with a workable solution...just like with iStock. :(

Please return old submission process! Because new system is buggy and slow:

1. Attaching releases takes 50x more time then old one. I have 2000+ releases and system has to load releases every time. 40 at the time. Then I need to scroll to load another 40. It takes 50 cycles of scrolling and waiting to get to the bottom of the list. And this needs to be repeated over and over again for next photo. Old system had all releases always loaded.

2. Adding release to several photos which already have some releases attached is impossible. System becomes very slow in release popup dialog (CPU usage spikes as well). It is impossible even to close release popup and only way to continue is to reload whole webpage loosing all unsaved work. Because of this bug I need to attach release to only 1 photo at the time. And combined with problem #1 this leads to enourmous amount of time wasted.

Please add import of CSV file with release list. This will be biggest improvement and time saver!

OMG! What is this crap ? It was one of the fastest site to upload with a clear visibility until they changed the process with tons of pages to open to see NOTHING !
Hey Shutterstock  it's a tool for submitting, not a decorated christmas tree we need for uploading our work !
Some months before they have destroyed the so clear and easy earning reports by adding menu and pages and now they done the worst possible job with the submitter page !

one of the problems is that Javascript is not multithreaded, so if you add more and more javascript, it slows everything down. it can't do 2 things at the same time. if it is waiting to load suggested keywords, everything will be halted until that process is finished.

Another problem that I just noticed today, but god knows how many errors it caused me before I noticed it, is that because the category select menu falls over the keywords list when you have multiple images selected you can sometime accidentally click a keyword under the menu as the menu disappears with the same click that was meant to select the category (hard to explain but you'll see what I mean if you look out for it).

Depending on where the click lands it will result in either removing the keyword from all images or adding it to all images. Is anyone over on SS paying any attention at all to this?

At this point I believe the redesigned earnings and submissions pages were purposely designed to slow us down so we spend more time on the site and to discourage established contributors who upload a lot of stuff. Making sales of new images random so you're forced to click through multiple pages to see what new stuff is selling... making keywording more difficult and tedious...Oringer isn't stupid.

These things slow down people with higher royalties. Newbies don't know any better, and management knows a certain percentage of them will give up and never make payout, so SS keeps their money. And another percentage will make payout but get the lowest royalty rate.

It behooves them to make using SS painful for some people with higher earnings while they continually advertise for new contributors who flood the site with nearly identical images with the same keywords, so the submission process is comparatively easy for them.

That's my conspiracy theory and I'm sticking to it.

I just uploaded a 4K video clip.

Shutterstock automatically removed my most important keyword.
Pond5 accepted all keywords.
Fotolia accepted all keywords.
Storyblocks accepted all keywords.

Hi all!

I also don't like new design, and decide to fix it by myself.

I installed Chrome css extension called Stylish (
add add my custom ccs code Shutterstock Submit (

This is my temporary solution while we waiting new update.

Code was updated:
  • Dropdown menu for categories without gaps

P.S. Extension suites for all browsers
