Hi guys!

I want to apply for Getty and Corbis and other macrosites. But I don't know, if it's worth to do that? How different it is between macrosite like Getty and microsite like SS? Can I sale my picture in both of them as RF licences? And except Getty and Corbis, are there others sites worth to be tried? Like LatitudeStock, SuperStock, AgefotoStock?

No, Getty is exclusive and will never let your content go until you cancel your contract.

My Getty results are getting poorer every month and like Sean said everything must be exclusive. They are making a very short-term policy at the moment so a new sell-out is probably likely, you still can have good results if you make it to the higher ranked RM-collections but RF at Getty is pretty much dead I personally have better results with RF-micro than RF-Getty now.
Since about two years Corbis allows non-exclusive content at a reduced commission but the content has to be in the same price range at other sites (so no RF-micro for them which makes sense). You can have the occasional good RM-Sale there but results are not that great anymore.
Some photos/sessions will still do better at Getty or Corbis than Micro but the overall situation isn't great there.

Getty is like a micro site that every month sells 2 ou 3 EL.

I have lots of sales at micro prices and lower ... and they dont have volume.

The true is that microsites wont sell with volume anymore ... that's why I like the Stocksy approuch.

Income at Getty gets worse and worse every month. Once upon a time a Getty statement was like Christmas every month. These days I barely bother to look at my Getty statement, it's that bad.
