The news is here! SS decided, if we don't fit 50MB with 4MP, then the best choice is to extend 50MB to... Nobody knows.

So, heres the next, more clear petition.

First petition is restored with almost 1400 supporters, so you better check it first

Yeah, I finally signed. Seems that SS is going the way that IS did, right before they started their steady decline.

Ignore the artists and have someone behind a desk who possibly never created an image or a vector, decide based on some programmer who has not concept of how vectors are created or how they work as a file.

Plain, out of touch, blind decision.

Hi everyone,

Thank you again for all the comments and feedback you have provided. We understand the importance of having embedded metadata recognized during the upload process as well as the change in workflow when working with large files. We have collected all of your input and are actively working with our product and engineering teams to come up with the best path forward.

While we continue to delve into the numerous points that were brought up in your responses, we will postpone the release of the 4MP requirement and the auto generation of JPEGs from EPS files. Well continue working on perfecting the tools that empower and support all of our contributors, and well be back with an update soon.

Thank you again for all your input and for being such an active part of our community of artists!

I am still not convinced with their response.
The point is why they want to develop the new process. Why wasting time and money on engineering team on a useless topic.

Everything is working perfectly fine, even the 15mb file was also good. Why disturbing the whole process?

They don't want to listen to contributors, nor customers. Even the employee reviews on glassdoor are bad.

I can predict the SS downfall. In coming years I am seeing Adobe Stock as the new leader.

I really spend a lot of time those days looking for the way to properly reach the 4MP request without increase significantly the size of the file  :-\ :-\ :-\

I almost stop to produce designs to fit new requests for about one week... wasted time :( :(

Hard to say how much time to waste on something that seems destined for failure. Judging from the SS forums, it seems like the wide variety of contributors have a variety of reasons why they can't or won't bother with this current proposal.

I agree, this is unpractical implementation by them, but as they give a time limit i just start to work to being able to keep uploading my designs

Sigh. I listened to them and their last email:

   On April 15th 2019, all EPS files will need to be at least 4 MP with a new maximum MB size. We are currently working to determine the optimal limit, but it will be greater than 50MB. Our goal is to ensure contributors can continue uploading vectors of various complexity.

   On April 17th 2019, a JPG will automatically be created for your vectors when you upload.

I prepared a full batch of a thousand vector like they wanted. Then I upload the EPS only.

Guess what...:

    All vector images must be accompanied by JPG images with the same name. You uploaded the vector image but did not upload a corresponding JPG file named .jpg.

Maybe Shutterstock living on another dimension but ain't we the 17th? Why do they take the time to send us and email with specific dates so we can adapt and they do not stick to it :-/
