I've made a vector illustration recently and submitted it to the stock. Luckily the work was approved, but the thing is, I've read that it's a good idea to submit both vector and raster images so that the potential buyer can have a choice, so did I. I've posted one file under vector section and the other hi-res image under illustration section. The both files were approved, the problem is in the visibility of the files.
1. If you try to search the stock for the keywords, you will only be able to find the vector file, even if you set your filter to "illustrations only".
2. If you open my contributor's page you will only see the vector file as well.
3. But if you visit the page of the raster file directly, you will be able to see a special section called "More from this series" where you can see the vector file.
P.S. I've tried to make a subtle change in the title of the vector file, cause my assumption was that maybe the problem is here because of the identical titles, but this didn't solve the problem.
I assume that under my contributor's page both files should be seen and vector file should also have "More from this series" section. At the same time I'm not quite sure how both files should appear in the stock search.
File IDs: raster 252434426, vector 252262353.

Titles are not taken into account for search.
Hello everyone, I have used everything I thought would work for searching for my posted stock illustrations and NOTHING works. I just randomly pick a word that might find my picture and happened upon several by pure luck. I did a painting of elk in "snow in mts." and it came up with other pictures of horses - animal? I list some of my illustrations as abstract graphics and have never found them but they are in my portfolio. I just have to enjoy the journey. CRAZY!! JH
Are you suggesting that all these images that you cannot find are in your dashboard folder, or are you saying some images are missing from your dashboard folder?
All of my accepted images show up in my dashboard folder. I often go into stock and find something that looks a bit like my stuff and do a search for similar subjects. I learn a great deal with stock these searches. : + ) JH
Yes, sometimes it take a little extra effort finding new approvals on the website, except you enter a combination of several words. That is one of the reasons I like including unique, or not so common keywords for easy checks. Also the progress of indexing might also affect very new images. You'll find that after a few day, depending on the traffic to your images, it's easier finding them.
