I activate some of my images 2 months ago to reach the payout limit.

Over a year ago DP confirmed that my Files will removed from partner programm and API re-seller.

Today i find my images on http://www.ibudgetphoto.com/ via DP (search with image-number). :o

It's unbelievable they do what they want. :(

Sometimes its just a thumbnail but you cant buy the image. Try and go through the purchase process you probably wont be able to buy it. Its a horrible customer experience. Stopshop was the same. They have tons of images you cant buy. Hacks.

FWIW: It seems that you can find the DP images ONLY via the image number - NOT via keywords.

I found my images via keywords. 2 or 3 keywords and my images are shown up on the first page. I' m not registered there.

You can find images with title words even if it's not in keywords. And remember they take images from Dreamstime too...

Well, MY images that have been REMOVED from the partner program on DEPOSIT are not searchable via keywords.

(I can still find my images on ibudget but they from Dreamstime and that wasnt the question.)

But look at the prices being charged at Glow Images for DP images! I wonder if they're pulling the same stunt they did before where you get a subscription royalty and the site gets to pocket the rest...

I can see some of my stuff on iBudget and Glow Images.  My sales at DP are poor and I'm concerned to see my work being bandied about all these partners with little or no income to show for it.  I know some people get good results from DP, and others see few sales.  I'm in the few sales camp.  These partner program revelations make me feel uncomfortable and I suspect I'll be removing DP from my upload list.

After I opted out, my images could still be found there. But they said:

"Your images were removed from all our API websites. You could only see the previews since we were working on our search filters. However, it was not possible to purchase your files there since your files uploaded directly to our website are available for sale only on our website. "

Now I can still find my images on ibudgetphoto (via imagenumber search and keywords) so I'm still wondering if they can actually be purchased. Above reply was from april 2014, so now I'm thinking it was another lie.

yes i dont believe them.
I think the images are available for sale on Glowimages and i think we get only the dp subcription price when a buyer buys via Glow.

All of you only get a sub for any api that sells at any price. I can't say we, I left DP in disgust over the way places like glow can sell for any price and we only get a sub. I do't know why pepole keep asking. Nothing changed, we are being robbed.

"The previews probably appeared after we updated our search engine; however, there is no way to purchase your files on our API re-seller websites."

Then why do they show up at all? >:(
