Photoblog ShutterStock.com November 11 changed the interface section of the site for authors:
Interface photobank ShutterStock.com
The left section «Latest Downloads» catches the eye with a pop-up map of the world sold thumbnails of images showing what country was this image purchased.
Interface photobank ShutterStock. Latest Downloads
This map, in my opinion, is more entertaining than informative nature, because even with the knowledge of the geography of the country of purchase guess is difficult, a little card and signature "country" is not observed.
Located to the right of the map section «Content Overview», where you can see the preview is already loaded, but not attributable representation («clips and images to be submitted»), loaded and waiting for verification («images waiting for review») and images that are in your Portfolio («active images»).
. Content Overview
You can view the entire portfolio, if you go to the link «your image gallery>» or if you Videographer link «your footage gallery>», which I have in the screenshot is not because I do not sell the video.
The most important information for the current month - earnings (earnings this month) and the number of downloads («downloads this month») located at the top right and written in large print (it is, in my opinion, the most successful change throughout the design).
Interface photobank ShutterStock. Earnings this month
New sections «Overall Earnings» (total earnings) and «Earnings from New Content» (payments for new content) allow to monitor not only the dynamics of sales growth, but also will evaluate "recoil" from the new images in your portfolio. Both of the schedule track the number of downloads "on-week"
