Hopefully sometime this year we'll get the sales page fixed up.

wow, really? just wow.

anyway, read back at the comments from Torrens, they dont give a hoot about contributor tools, they said it themselves, buyers are main priority, which is good, but it just shows that contributors are not high on their priority list. their contributor tools havent been updated in 3 years, promises broken and thats no shocker either

Teaming with Getty?  Sigh.

To our wonderful Canva contributors,

As Canva continues to grow, were working hard to ensure our product evolves with the needs and wants of our usersso heres a few updates from the team.

Building our collection

Since launch in 2013, weve made huge strides towards our mission of empowering the whole world to design. Today, Canva is in 190 countries and accessible in 100 languagesso building a diverse image library is more important than ever.

To help jump-start this process, were working with Getty Images wholl provide their content from iStock. For those of you who already have images in iStock, dont worry. Were ensuring all Canva images are prioritised.

Got any travel plans?

If youre a contributor who takes authentic global shots, wed love to hear from you. Well be focusing on initiatives to champion diversity in our library in the coming months.

One Time Use License

Our One-Time Use (OTU) licence has always been a huge source of confusion for our users. Users love having a low-cost way to access your quality images (and its always been important for us not to give away too many rights). But the 24 hour restriction left lots of people puzzled.

So to keep our users smiling, were removing the 24 hour restriction on our OTU license. What this means is users will now be able to use one image in one designat one price.

Canva for Android wins Google Play Award

In other news, our Android app was recently awarded by the Google Play store as Best Standout Startup. Its thanks to your contribution that were able to give even more people around the world access to a library of amazing imageryright from their smartphones.

We cant wait to see more of your workthanks again!

This teaming with Getty news basically means bad news for contributor in Canva because there will be a lot more competition.

I suppose the sales made from iStock's portfolio will be reported at iStock? How much are we getting actually? I suspect it is lower than $0.35?

Well this is potentially very disappointing news for those of us who have worked hard to build portfolios at Canva.  It's good that Canva have said that all existing Canva images will be prioritised, so perhaps the impact won't be too bad.  But it's a worry.  At best there will be some slight dilution, but at worst a complete decimation of current sales and incomes.  I suppose it all depends on how the arrangement is implemented - if it's through an additional link that takes the customer off to the iStock web site to import into Canva perhaps that won't be so bad.  But if the arrangement involves importing the entire iStock catalog into Canva then I can't see how that can result in anything but reduced sales for current Canva contributors.  Presumably more information will become available in due course.

ugh. I can't see how this is good for anyone other than maybe Getty and Canva. It certainly doesn't sound like good news for Canva contributors. Especially those that aren't selling through Getty for one reason or another. I wonder what the final amount the contributors would get - potentially from the 1$ sale .65 goes to Canva leaving .35 and then almost 30 cents for Getty leaving 5.25 cents for the contributor. Woo Yay?

So Canva removed 80% of my approved images and now they'll get tons of similar "unwanted" images through IS.

What? Can you elaborate what happened? How they just remove your images? This is scary.

yep, that's a shame, just when I had faith in a new site! Sales will only go down now surely?

Few years ago they decided to remove a lot of previously approved images, because they don't need them anymore! Even images with a lot of sales have been deleted! It was not just me, many contributors complained about it here on MSG.
