Anyone noticed they changed this page recently? Im in Australia, and it shows I can now get a single image download for $19. So I am guessing the trial period where it seemed to only be parts of the US is now over?

I think they also removed the 25 image pack if I remember correctly?

I just went to the page you indicated and I can only see subs sales and Multi-Image on demand stuff, no Single image on Demand. I'm in Australia too (hi!)

STRANGEST thing....

Just tried the link in Firefox and you're right - no single image option.

Tried it in Safari - Single Image Option!!

What on earth!!??

PRobably a good idea to tell them. They might not be aware that some browsers aren't reading the page properly.

It's their job to be aware of cross-browser compatibility.

Browsers are annoying things for web developers. Each browser can show things differently and then there are so many versions of a particular browser. It can be frustrating to say the least and can take a lot of time to figure out the solution.

Go to a photo sharing website and sign up so you can copy the info from the pic and then you can put it up anywhere you want to.

Ah, not going to bother with the screen grab, just rest assured I'm not making this up!

Interesting thoughts zager, hadn't considered that was even a possibility!

Has anyone else tried Safari on this page?

Ah you know, I didn't even check the first time you posted, but I just checked now and I have it on on Firefox, but still the old one on Chrome.

wow glad it's not just me. So I'm not going crazy after all....

Still doesn't seem to make much sense that it's somewhat browser dependent...?

I'm confused as heck. My subscribe page has the $19 in the third column. (not 4th) Below the frequent use in Explorer.

Anyway, I went and checked. USA Mid-States. Chrome and Firefox identical. Explorer is very different looking. But all have the $19 image option.

Oh wait... I went and looked at a portfilio http://www.shutterstock.com/gallery.mhtml?id=953314 (who seems to be a really, really new member, doesn't show in the stats, so within the last two weeks?) ID number is 953314 which I thought was interesting. Anyway...

When I clicked a photo and looked at prices, hey guess what, the $19 option is now in the center box and there are three boxes. Not four, now stacked, but three wide? Remember I was the one who had it on all three browsers, now viewing someones pictures, it's a different version of the page.  ;D

Might be that different servers for the images locations, have different versions of this? Today's with Explorer (different from yesterday)

Below = the one I get when logged in and using Chrome:

Maybe they are having a good time watching us try to figure this out?  ;D

It's probably A/B testing. A technique to learn what setup works best for the customer by serving two similar pages to a lot of readers and measuring result...

I'd say Vita is correct. They are testing which landing page converts more. Basically trying to figure out how to increase conversions.
