There was a lot of time that I did not upload on GL Stock.
So this morning I decided to give a try.

1) Uploading panorama images with one side under 2000 pixels and one over 2000 pixels I get the error message Height or width must be at least 2000 pixels. If both sides should be over 2000 pixels the message should be Height and width must be at least 2000 pixels

2) Uploading a model release, once the file has been uploaded, the Next button has absolutely no effect

3) I cant find a place to see my already uploaded releases

4) I cannot find any explanation about how to upload vectors (single eps, eps + jpeg, zipped eps + jpeg)


Sales are very slow on this site, I should say non-existent, especially after the restyling of the site

Seriously GL Stock, what are you doing??

Guess I will leave it a bit longer to start uploading again ;-)

I still get some sales before they changed management. Now that they have change ownership, sales have plummeted to zero. They also fail to review the stuffs I uploaded for over a year.

Forget about this site, because there's nobody working there.

Yup. They killed the site. Sales quickly decreased with the new owners, now dead.

Yes, two or three years ago it was a so promising site.
And also very fair.

It still is fair, but what good is fair if there are no sales.

I've supported them for years, because they're fair, but I won't upload anymore files.

I was really hoping for good things when they got bought and the new site design was being talked about.

But Unfortunately the new design is actually worse than the old one and sales have gotten even rarer.

I think they are in the "keep, but no new files" category for me as well.

Its a shame, I really wanted sites like them to succeed given their "Fair Trade" style approach.

As i recall, the new owner posted here and was quite candid about a realistic timeline for redeveloping the site. I'm not sure we're really that far beyond his hoped-for date.

That's true but the feeling here, which I shared, was that it would be extremely hard to get buyers back or retain. I guess there's still time.

No one has been able to start a new image sales business for years - SS controls the market, and they've destroyed it.   The next window of opportunity will be when significant numbers of buyers stat to get disenchanted with SS and with searching its endless archive of repetitious junk.    And on another track, the whole concept of 'stock imagery' will inevitably change, and what SS has will go out of style.  What comes after that, I have no idea.
