I can't understand the system at EyeEm. My images are released for sale - but not at EyeEm ..? Maybe at EyeEm 'partners' ...??? What's going on? I have tried to communicate with EyeEm but I don't understand  their answers. Can somebody enlighten me?

EyeEm has a market and partners (Getty). Your pictures can be sold on both or just their market. Each picture you select to be on market will be subjected to be selected to partner.

I have images on EyeEm. About half of my images are on EyeEm and the other half are on the EyeEm partners. It seems for me the only sales I get are from the partners. I have never had any sales on the EyeEm only. The sales are fairly good on the partner sites.

Ok - but I am at Alamy and Adobe. Wonder how you get at EyeEm ... lets see what happens ...

As far as I know, they only use Getty even if they say those partners. Anyone actually know if they have EyeEm pictures in alamy or AS?

Maybe they notify ONLY Getty but actually have them on Alamy or AS? I doubt it. The whole process of tagging is very getty-related (their own keywords).

I think it's worth it if you have pictures that are more artsy and not so stocky. It's a little bit social which I don't mind neither.

For me to be honest no. I think its one of those sites that works well for those with the right content. The Upload/Tagging process is horrible and time consuming.  But try it out its the only way to know if it works for you.

Upload only the ones you think might be accepted based on their style. Keywording is not as bad since Getty actually destroys it after selection lol. It is also useful to follow ideas and inspiration. I like their app, it's the only one good looking. I prefer EyeEm over 500px to access to Getty.

OK, thanks guys for the advice! I think I might try that out for a few months and see how it works. It seem to be a bit different from the others.

Every other site I can upload the metadata from the JPG for Eyeem I have to enter each word individually. I can't even copy and paste a block of text. Or have I missed something?

You are right. I normally use the suggested and add some manually but really it doesn't matter since Getty mess that up

Yes - it's a bit of a drag to fill in the keywords one by one. And they also have AS and Alamy as partners. And AS don't accept duplicates so it's difficult. Do the parteners notice you if they have your images on their sites ..?

I like EyeEm very much, the photos look very good, they accept a high average of photos and I sell with them. But the best thing is the payment system ... IMMEDIATELY sell and collect what you sell !!! ESo speaks of a healthy company without debts all day.

The sales that were reported yesterday happened in DECEMBER on Getty. And NO direct sales have not been reported for at least 2 months. They are NOT reported real time!
