Is it just me or shutterstock has one angry reviewer? I usually have most of my pictures accepted but this week I got two entire batches (I always submit 3 in a batch) rejected. And I honestly disagree with the rejections because I think that the material is good enough.

So I would like to resubmit. Is it against the rules to resubmit the same EXACT image (absolutely no modifications)?

What do you guys do?

I was thinking of resubmitting the pictures and spread them out in between different batches.

Also, is it possible to have incorrect white balance for a black and white picture?

Thanks a lot!

If you really disagree with the reviewer's decision you can repost with a note to the reviewer explaining your concern.  Alternatively, try posting in the critique forum and see if others agree with you ... that is if you can post an image there.  I haven't been able to for months, as haven't many others.  If you want to post a full size image, you'd have to use an off-site service anyway, like Flickr, VOX or some such.

well if there is a 'tinge' to the photo the colors can be off.  When you open it up in photoshop the RGB values should all be equal if it is supposed to be a gray value.

If you try resubmitting the exact same images without a note you will proabably get a warning.  I forget how all the warnings work, but if you get too many of them your upload privileges are refused for a while.

I've found SS to have the most consistant reviewers, but I've had a few rejections (especially lately) that clearly should have been accepted. I can say this with 100% certainty because the images in question were composites made of trusted components.

When this happens to me I change the image in some way (downsize, curves, levels, saturation) and resubmit it. Sometimes I'll wait a day, but I usually include it in my next batch. If it isn't accepted this second time I'll forget about it.

I only resubmit images if I am as close to certain as I can be that the reviewer made an error in judgement - if I have any doubt about the quality or commercial appeal of an image I will not resubmit it.

Thanks a lot sharply_done.
One question: When you resubmit after those minor corrections (downsize,curves,...) do you write a note to the reviewer that is is a "resubmit"?

I feel same way as you. I had a lot of rejections where I understand why it was rejected but these few I really like and I think they would do quite well.

I often try resubmitting but as sharply_done says, I change it in some way..

Often downsizing (to get rid of noise and improve the sharpness)  When I upload the images the second time i write a little note that it is a resubmit with the problems fixed.  I resubmitted without writing a note once and got a warning.

One time I got an image rejected for "limited commercial value" I re-submitted it as it was with a note to the reviewer that if it not sells in ten days I would delete it myself. I had to delete it  ;) But shows that SS is up for a compromise (sometimes) SY

hi everybody,
I had 2 batches of 10 rejected before being accepted at shutterstock (10/10 rejected in the first and second try).
Are they considered "true" rejection?
May i resubmit with minor changes?
Should I write a note for the reviewer?
Or maybe is it better forget those old images to avoid warnings? (some of them are good sellers)
What is your experience about this kind of situation?
