The Getty animoto deal deserves a thread of its own, I agree.

This is like the getty google deal, or microsoft deals. Getty makes millions, we get nothing.

It is also unfairly undercutting all the other agencies that pay the artist.

I have stopped uploading, 2 or 3 cents for a download  is far too low!
And thier keywording system is frustrating, my keywords are messed up.

A few years ago, when i began with microstock, Istock was my best earner

They pay to the artists in most of the cases(lol), but almost nothing and that's the big problem. Most of the contributors prefere what Getty give instead of nothing when already the files are uploaded(after the hard work of uploading years back).
I've stopped uploading, but to be honest will not delete what i have there(for now). They know this is valid for most of the contributors and they use it.

I deleted a bunch of files when I gave up my crown to place them exclusively elsewhere.

But the 4000 that are there will stay there. But I am not really adding, maybe 30 files last year. No videos however, not for 68 cent sales.

My thoughts on this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kb8_NGZ68oo

Disturbing video... makes me want to remove my videos from istock.  Deserves it's own thread.
It is cruel reality
