I saw the same image on Shutterstock.com but the resolution is lower, why?

We didn’t send full size photos to distribution channel and reserved only for Italy Stock Photo. All photos in our website are full-sized.

I saw the same image on Dreamstime.com but the resolution is higher, why?

Dreamstime upsizes image from jpeg to attract customers. What they called ‘tiff’, is actually upsized from jpeg. The upsizing not only adds no true additional quality to the image, but also degrades image details. You may find similar cases in 123rf.com.
