Do they calculate their total number of images (18,062,076) on how many unique images they have, or by how many different download options there are for each unique image (different file types & sizes)?

In other words, does this photo (http://x.co/glW0) count as 1 or 6 images in the ShutterStock Stats?

It counts as 1 image.

But SS does count vectors and JPGs separately, so if you upload a vector image and then upload a raster version (JPG) of that same vector, essentially that one image counts as 2. Not every vector gets uploaded as JPG, and some vectors are rejected while a JPG version of that same image gets accepted, so I wouldn't say that vectors double themselves in the total count. But they do account for a good number of images in the collection that are really just alternate versions of the same image.
