Today we present to you a statistical analysis of the authors profiles on one of the largest microstocks - Shutterstock. Who are these people? Do you want to know where they live and create? What kind of works and how much are they submitting? What is the scale of the competition today?
As you may know, working with Getty takes some extra time managing used keywords, because they have their very own dictionary of them, that you have to follow. Now there is a way to minimize that time...
What is new: new two-step interface layout mode, highlighting for selected root/similar words, new edit keywords commands in menu, highlighting for misspelled words in “suggested keywords” section, abuse protection + some UX updates
Every day the ImStocker database is growing. The number of analyzed works has already exceeded 33 million. It is enough to do analysis of how keywords are used, how they are located in the tops of search result and how many downloads each word has. The article also provides source files so that everyone can do an analysis and make the own conclusions 😀
For the year, we have increased size of our database from 1.5 million to 5.7 million entries with metadata about photos, illustrations, vectors and videos. It's time to share some statistical data! Again
We have added additional options in IMS Keyworder to make your search more precise. You can specify type of media: photo, illustration, vector or video; type of license (editorial or royalty-free) and choose if you interested only in assets with model releases.

This method allows to save title, description and keywords inside jpeg files, so you don’t have to fill them multiple times for each agency
