I got sale yesterday and the price still at $49.00!!!

Just like over at Pond5, there is likely a delay of a few days between a sale and a sales report, so that we don't freak out about all the fraudulent purchases that are made.

your site looks ok and your photos are ok, congrats and good sales ;)

I'm not sure what's more surprising - getting the sale or it being at the old price.

Rather than an increase in sales which Storyblocks suggested would happen though these changes, mine have dropped a further 50% from when we were getting 100%, so down to about 10% of their peak. The agency is now firmly in the "why bother" category. Seriously considering deleting my portfolio there.

For the record I was finally able to create an acceptable .MOV H.264 video.
Things to note.
1. 4K has to be 3840x2160. Video shot in 4096x2160 has to be rescaled to 3840x2160.
2. Export the video from Premiere Pro CC 2018 as a .mp4 encoded with H.264
3. VideoProc by Winxdvd can then export your mp4 as .MOV and encode with H.264. This step seems to be a waste of time but Getty wants .MOV  ::)

Now the hardest decision to make is whether I could be bothered seeing as nearly everybody else takes 4096x2160 H.264 MP4s as export from PP CC 2018.  :o

As far as the suggestions to use DaVinci or PP CC 2017 go.   ::)
Thanks but we have what we have but you if you want to go to the extra expense or effort go for it.

I wouldn't keep that kind of blurred photo not even on my CPU.

How are you storing things on your CPU?

No big deal, it was probably made a day or two before the change in price.

Let's see- I've been with iStock since 2011 and they are still having issues reporting sales since then!  :(
