I uploaded a bunch of new model released photos on Shutterstock.  The AI reviewer rejected most photos with same framing with different facial expression or facial direction.  The Shutterstock AI reviewer is incapable of distinguishing between different facial expression of a model in the photos.  It just take 1 photo of the same framing and reject all others with different facial expression.  This must be doing a lot of damage to Shutterstock itself because they are missing out on potential good selling photos of variable facial expression unless you re-submit them.  It's really stupid what Shutterstock is doing with AI reviewer imo.  Only good thing is their review time is so fast on the same day within hours unlike Adobe Stock review that's taking over a month these days.  Shutterstock contributors don't care much because all we get mostly are $0.10 per sale.  So, it's a bad cycle of low motivation and bad review process Shutterstock has created in the name of efficiency and maximizing profit.  It's backfiring on them.  Their market value is 1/3 of its peak now.  It's a sweat shop operation now except their enterprise business that's reportedly growing.

Shutterstock is only interested in minimizing costs.

they should thank you that you still want to upload content instead of wasting your time!

I don't upload anymore until I see a clear signal that they are still interested in getting new content,so I guess I'll just wait forever!

Once in a awhile, they get you an exclusive limited duration buyout of photos.  I have 2 photos currently on 1 year buyout for a few thousand dollars each.  So, for only that reason, I still upload photos to Shutterstock just in case.
