Sadly, I wasn't able to get my files uploaded due to error.
I am frustrated.

SS you ruined everything.

Aaaand, I'm out.  I have been hot and cold about Shutterstock for some time now, and I'm finally truly fed up.

Someone in upper management had an idea, and the people who actually know how things work were unable to stop them from doing probably the stupidest thing ever in stock illustration.

I wonder if I should delete my Bigstock as well, since Shutterstock owns it?

In order to create a 4MP vector, you have to reset your artboard to a larger, non standard size.  The result will be a really heavy file, unless the vector is incredibly simple.  You'll also have something you probably can't upload anywhere else.  Essentially, Shutterstock's new idea DOES NOT WORK.

That's why I have not just disabled my portfolio, but asked to have it removed entirely.  They're too stupid to be trusted with my work.

Offtopic question, but it has connection with SS, and it's caused by "exciting" news.

If I opt out from Image sales, Footage sales, Sensitive use and Enhanced license (in SS account settings) will all my files be removed from all SS searches, including partners sites?

Thanks!

Yes, if you look at your dashboard where it says Image portfolio it will have 0 next to it. Click on it and it will say "This contributor has no active images in their portfolio."
Partner sites, who knows?  Give me a partner sight and I will have a look.

Thanks for reply! Actually, SS has easiest way to remove all files. Something good from them...


Can you explain the easiest way to remove all files from SS? I have been deleting them one by one from the catalog manager.

One by one I suppose, from the catalog manager.
You can also opt out everything under your Account Settings

I don't know other ways to do it

Email them to delete it.

I wonder if they are forcing contributors to opt for their new upload dimensions, their idea behind probably is they want people to create content with SS specific requirements and force restricting uploads to other agencies.

Did anyone told them about the easier option of adding "being exclusive" section to their system?

I have a similar feeling.

But personally I don't sell so much vectors on Shutterstock, I sell a lot of more on VectorStock and Adobe.
If I have to choose, and they are pushing me (us) to choose, I will just stop to upload my vectors to Shutterstock.

But they are going to lose all the more complex vectors to the competition...

Maybe it is what they *really* want?

I deleted my Bigstock account sending them an e-mail. They deleted my account in day, or two.

On SS you can just opt out from all sales in account settings. I did it that way.

SS- hey technical engineering team lets have meeting

Team- sure

SS- lets ruin the vector upload system by building a automated tool.

Team-  :-\ ..... sure

----After months / years of hard work technical team builds it.

Team- So now we have built it, we need to apply it.

SS- Lets force contributors to abide by these new rules.

Contributors- what???, we don't need it, it is worst development and adding more difficulties in uploading.

Team- "*We knew it*"

Contributor- We can show you proofs (shares screenshot)

SS- F**k off, we don't care, we have f**king invested so much time, money and efforts in it and will not let it go. Take it or leave it.

Contributors-  :-\ :-X :(

OMG
What a large PITA.
Just tried to upload a vector image and had to resize it especially for SS, it's HUGE.

Can someone please tell me if I am missing something here?

My works are flat vector so the file size is naturally small. VERY small. Most of my files are only 800-900 KB even though they are vector sets with at least 6-8 graphics in there.

How can I get the file to be 4MP? I tried double the artboard size and can only get to 2MP at most. Am I supposed to make my artboard to be ridiculously large or is there another way that I don't know?

Thank you.

What program are you using? In Illustrator, when you make a new document, you can choose Pixels for Units and specify a Width x Height that results in 4MP , for example, 2450x1650 (which equals 4042500 pixels).

Someone received a diploma from a prestigious University and was successful in selling toilet paper, and now decided to try his hand at trading stock images. I do not want to participate in his experiments, taking a wait-and-see position.

This is pathetic, I just spent 5 continues hours to get around 100 files fixed as per their requirement.

I usually design them for months ahead and now stuck in here.
These guys are crazy.

To be 4MP, your file must be at least 2464 x 1632 pixels, so yes you are supposed to make your artboard to be ridiculously large thanks to foolish SS rules

I really don't understand why you all you want to continue to upload vectors to Shutterstock
You lament, you whine, you cry
We made different petitions and they are be ignored
There are 50 pages of thread (2 threads) about it on the Shutterstock forum and every your request is just ignored.

Then you do exactly what they want and how they want

In the end, if you're not happy, you only have yourself to blame!

I guess if you have a new or growing portfolio, it kind of derails your plans. My growth is kind of stagnant the last couple years with all the competition, so it is pretty easy to just sit back and see what happens with this whole mess.
