VEER upgrades

Over the last month VEER has released some back end updates along with other new features you may have noticed.  First up was enhancing the upload interface while also adding the much needed full batch functionality on key-wording.  Another huge improvement is the change in the way they show the reporting stats.  The new system now allow you to view your lifetime, month breakdown or fully customizable date range.  The earlier system was based on weeks which made it very hard to track monthly sales.  Finally, to improve customer viewership they have launched additional support for French and Italian speaking countries which will greatly improve their presence in Europe. Check out the official press release here.

Shutterstock Revamped Contributor Page

Shutterstock last week unrolled their fresh contributor page.  Some of the improved features include a message center ban at the top of the page, rewards earnings right there when you log in, current download number for the month, and much more info.  Read below for the full list of feature.  Another cool little item is they now show a map of the world where your latest images that have been downloaded show up on.  Its very matrix like and will show you what part of the world just downloaded your image.  Is this feature pointless, yes, is it cool, very much so.  Keep up the great work Shutterstock!!!
