15 Apr 2016 Shutterstock’s iOS Contributor App Now Supports Releases
Shutterstock has once again updated their mobile app for contributors.
Following the recent update in March that added multiple upload, batch editing and easier keywording, the latest version of Shutterstock Contributor app on iOS platform now adds model and property releases functionality.
Aiming at improving the usability of the system, version 1.4 allows users to attach, upload and manage model and property releases directly within the app.
Other microstock companies’ mobile apps, like Fotolia’s Instant, already support release documents. Most of dedicated mobile stock companies either support model releases in their apps, or don’t require them. Some, like Snapwire and 500px, even have stand-alone apps for release documents.
Shutterstock’s mobile app was strange regarding releases in the past: the terms required them, but didn’t enable a function to add them, making the app painful to use for uploading commercial images. This update addresses the broken system and provides a better user experience for contributors.
