Any news regarding vectors?

Does anyone know if they are done deleting images? I thought they were going to send out an email with an explanation, but I have not received one.

In reply to a support ticket I sent, Lee said there'd be an explanation of new requirements and standards in the next newsletter. That was months ago and I haven't received anything either.

My portfolio size has been steady for several weeks, but the last time I thought they were done they went on a new culling spree. I'm not uploading at the moment - until we get some new guidelines - as they have deleted many of the images that were selling well at Canva and are proven bestsellers elsewhere; I have no clue, literally, as to what they want. Even if I compare what they kept vs. what they culled I can't see any pattern or logic.

YMMV

Thanks! I'm not going to upload either for the same reasons. Hopefully they will send something out soon.

I can't understand this logic at all. When we have images ready to sell the best for the income is to upload all images to all agencies which are proven sellers. At least in Canva you just place all files in the FTP and forget to do nothing more(today i uploaded batch of 255 images and it cost me 1 min time to select the files). They have the right to take what they need. There have no exclusivity requirements.
If the try is to oblige Canva or any other agency to start accepting more images this is mission impossible. Would be possible in some small agency, but it's pointless.
I mean when we talk about RF microstock non-exclusive content.

I don't think they are accepting vectors.  I had a few PNGs rejected after acceptance - sent back to the cutout queue - but others are still there.  I have found that many of my isolations were not as isolated as I thought once I made them into PNGs - I am trying to fix those before submission.  At least Lee is very responsive when you have a problem so that makes them good in my book.

The trick is to view the finished cut-out file with a red, blue and green background.  Look at the edges of the cut-out to be sure they are clean.  I do all my work on a TIF file.  Once everything looks clean, only then do I save it as a high rez PNG file.  So far that's worked fine as I've yet to have a rejection of a submitted PNG image.  From what I understand, this is how PNG images are reviewed, so it makes sense to do it myself that way before submittal.

Another tip.  Save the cut-out TIF file for possible future use on composites.  No point in having to isolate an image all over again.  ;D

Does anyone recall what day of the month CANVA issues their payouts?  My previous payouts all came around the 4th or 5th of the month but I haven't seen any notification yet for my current payout (close to $200 at the end of last month).

By my experience between 3th and 11th

4th to the 8th is the spread I've seen. I don't get one every month, but I'm expecting one now. Tomorrow in the US will be Monday for Canva so perhaps then?

Thanks.  I'll just wait until the end of next week and see what happens.  I don't recall seeing anything in writing from CANVA so didn't have much to go on other than previous payment dates.

FYI: I just received my payment for August.

Canva contributor area need some serious user experience improvements.

I don't get these soft rejections...what am I suppose to improve on?

They don't delete the hard rejections, and the buttons next to rejected images make no sense. What is "Abort"? "Deactivate" next to an approved image make sense, but what does it mean when it's in a soft-rejection/hard-rejection image? When I click on them, nothing happens.

Quick question about layouts if someone knows the answer please?

Can I create a layout using one of my images and then sell it as a layout and make more money?

For example, if I take a landscape image of mine and put some inspirational quote over the top of it?

Since canva doesn't have it's own section in this forum, I guess I'll have to ask that here:

I tried to apply as contributor at Canva for multiple times and I got rejected every time. It's the only agency that didn't accept me until now. Now I look at current poll results and ask myself if it's even worth to continue investing my time into further applications.

How much do you guys earn right now for let's say 1000 PNG images?

Less than Shutterstock but more than iStock.  I think they are worth it, however I have heard that they have really tightened up who gets approved - your experience is proof of that.

Canva appears to have given up on contributor relations - never did see that newsletter explaining what they want for submissions, although (a) the culling of prior uploads appears to have ended and (b) September was another BME, even with the tiny 245 image portfolio I have left.

They have raised more money though:

http://www.microstockdiaries.com/canva-raises-15-million-series-a-at-165-million-valuation.html

As far as whether it's worth it, they're doing better than low earners like CanStock (for me anyway). I'm just not uploading because the cull took out many best sellers (that had been selling on Canva as well as everywhere else) and I couldn't fathom what possible criteria they were using. If you have a high tolerance for a completely mysterious acceptance policy, it might be worth it for you

Apparently, there are more then 3 million designs created each month. I think that's a huge number.

I've only got a little over 100 images up (roughly 80% PNG and the rest full image JPEG).  This is after some previously approved images have been rejected.  Still for the past few months I've had payout each month and I'm already over minimum payout for this month.  Hardly big-time dollars, but a few hundred dollars a month is fine with me.
