Isn't less information sometimes better tho?, if it's all about content content content these days maybe info like fps etc could throw off some customers?.  also, maybe they are copying the free sites, after all the free sites have some way of staying in business with no revenue.......hmmm.
Did you forget the sarcasm smilie?
I think so.

If I were a buyer, I would not buy where there is not enough info.
Dreamstime doesn't have fps info on footage either. I would never buy footage there. When I had a look at the website and some videos, my first impression was : totally unprofessional.

Perhaps the new SS designer is an 'undercover' brought in from a competing business.  8)
But I hope everything will be fine.

Yes but times have changed and people are dumbing down while getting smarter if that makes any sense and maybe they are catering to that crowd who is now entering or in the workforce, those who will just tap on something that "looks cool" and use it and don't want to see or care about those pesky technical details.

I live in a mixed student building in a college town and it's mostly computer science and engineering students here, they do programming and math to the next level, some really impressive stuff but can't clean a room or operate a complicated piece of equipment like a vacuum cleaner if their lives depended on it.

They think differently, I can't understand one symbol on their math assignments yet in real life they function like 2 year olds.

There was a big party on my floor last Friday and it was great btw but then came time to clean up the next day and none of them could figure out how to get rid of 30 balloons so they asked me if I knew who sells large garbage bags because we have a lot of balloons to get rid of and I said sure but you're gonna pop them first right?.,  they had no clue what I was talking about, their plan was to put all these balloons in to large garbage bags and haul them out to the bin.

I took a fork from the kitchen and five minutes and a lot of noise later I swept the remains up with my bare hand and put them in the little kitchen garbage bin, they looked at me like I was a god and them proceeded to tell me how smart I am and how much money I could make......

That's who's entering the workforce......

This story is really great!!!  ;D

Oh I have more but I learn from all this that people can be very smart in some areas yet not able to accomplish some very simple tasks that don't require a degree in math or computer science or engineering.

The tricky part is when in person to not burst out laughing, insult them or act condescending, knowing how engineering students like to play pranks that's what I thought it was at first and then I realized they are serious, good think I didn't say what was on my mind originally.

Lol!
If that story is even true, then it was clearly a prank you fell for, good Mr. Will Hunting!  ;D

That's no different than "the secrets of the universe unlocked by reading chewing gum wrapper", "wisdom" learned from the wise father of a microstock celebrity, known for regularly "embellishing" his stories.  :)

I have to admit that the chance of finding people who would not come up, with the same idea as Level6 did, is pretty slim or next to nothing. But maybe there were just two other people there? But that would make the story less great obviously. And even then.

Hello,
I know this topic is a bit old, but it seemed like the relevant place to write this. Just checking a few images from the buyers' point of view on Shutterstock and I noticed that when you select an image and then click on the magnifying glass to (supposedly) zoom in for a closer look, you then get the image badly cropped top and bottom, icons cutting out some of the picture at the top and the title covering up part of the picture at the bottom. Maybe it's been this way for a while, I don't know, but it looks terrible and I can't imagine it's attractive to buyers.
