I'm pretty sure none of mine were sensitive use because I have no people photos at all.  ??? Just had a single download for $21 which makes me smile. And today a 3c commission for my lone referral that passed the test. Whoo Hoo!  ;)

Haha, and I was stoked about my $.25 sub sales.  The PicNiche notification tone is so pleasing...

@scottbraut: I wish Shutterstock would give us the opportunity to opt in or out on an image basis. About 10 % of my pictures are of children, and I can't (and won't) opt those in. But the other 90 % of the portfolio would not be a problem.

Hi All,

When you receive a high royalty for a single image, it is because the image was sold under a license that offers the option for sensitive use. That does not mean that the use was a sensitive one.  The majority of these images will not be used in a sensitive manner.  However, such use is a possibility. Unlike some competitors, we give you the ability to opt-out.  

High royalties are often the result of a prenegotiated agreement with volume buyers such as large advertising agencies.  These volume buyers may require additional license or workflow features, such as the option for sensitive use, indemnification, multi-user accounts, prenegotiated pricing, and special billing and workflow features.  

By opting-in to sensitive use, you get access to all sales made to these buyers.  By opting out, your images aren't available to buyers who require the option of sensitive use.

Overall, these sales are a great opportunity to drive additional revenue to you and we're excited to make them available.  :)

Best,

Yes double thanks on that one. :) 8)

Not worried about models so no big deal on that one.

Totally agree with you.  An opt in/out option at image level (not all the portfolio) will be a much wiser decision. I am willing to opt in the majority of my pictures BUT not all of them.

Maybe I am misunderstanding this:  I've only recently opted in for the "sensitive use" sales.  Before opting in I had several "Single and Other" downloads.  They were much less that $75 or $100 but were more than the OD downloads.

Are there separate rate charts for "sensitive" and "single image" downloads?

I guess so, so far in the "Single and Other" I had 11 downloads

- 1 for 2.8$ (28%)
- 1 for 5.32$ (28%)
- 2 for 16.8$ (28%)
- 6 for 18$ (30%)
- 1 for 70$ (28%)

from which values are they sensitive us? I have no idea but I believe only the 70$ (which is the 75$ if i havent had it before the last club)

Thanks for the explanation Scott.

I have a question though...at 3 x $120 commission ($360 to the artist per the original poster) does the 25% commission that Shutterstock says artists get still apply?  In this case would Shutterstock be getting $480 per image for a total of $1,440?

What i don't understand here is why somebody buy a image/illustration ( without people in it) with $480 and not using the file for sensitive purposes when they have the EL option for $100.

They must have different options and uses that is not possible with EL.

How does an illustration get a sensitive use license? I thought those only applied to photos with people in them...

Good question....

i really don't like this secrecy around this ''sensitive use'' license price, terms and conditions. They must be public like the RF and EL licenses.  :-\ :-\

It looks to me like more along the lines of special licenses that are outside the scope of the regular RF license that is covered by the subscription packages or ELs.

That could include much higher print runs or maybe usage for a corporation that wants to use the image for several businesses within their company. Well, scottbraut already outlined it for us anyway...

Obviously there is a need for such licenses and I'm glad that SS caters to these kinds of clients. No complaints here.

Apparently some people have a broken scroll wheel on their mouse?  ;)

 ;D ;D ;D Ok, so where can i see the '' additional requests'' terms that volume buyers want, beside the sensitive use that is very clearly. I don't want to sell a image without knowing what rights are applied to that specific license.
