Why pictures has cutted from right side?

Published: February 24, 2017

Shutterstock customers seen a lot of changes in the site in 2016 and 2017. Contributors have also seen a lot of changes. But why so far in "Approval Status" they see horizontal pictures has cutted from right side?

At the same time if there is a square image in a group of files, horizontal pictures has no cutted from right side. Its looks fine. It is very strange.

We asked this question to our html-coder. Half an hour later he said: "Need to fix the file review_batch.css on site Shutterstock. That's all."

After fix:

We hope, programmers from Shutterstock reads our site. We promise to remove this article if they fix the problem.

Sincerely yours, microstock.top
