Hello,
I just find out that Depositphotos is owned by Vistaprint now.
Does anyone know how will this affect contributors?
Depositphotos payments came always from USA, will this continue, or earnings will come from another country?
Has anybody more info about these changes?

No one can say. Depositphotos is now owned by Vistaprint which is a "Dutch" but really owned by an "Irish" company, the speech marks because all of them are acually owned by a US company domiciled in Ireland for tax purposes.

Depositphotos was always a Russian company run from a letterbox in Florida anyways.

At the end of the email it says that personal data will be shared with and processed by Cimpress plc

https://cimpress.com/

This is the group that owns VistaPrint. Not sure what their statement about who they are really means, but it says:

"Cimpress plc (Nasdaq: CMPR) invests in and builds customer-focused, entrepreneurial, mass-customization businesses for the long term. Mass customization is a competitive strategy which seeks to produce goods and services to meet individual customer needs with near mass production efficiency. "

Here is their press release about the acquisition

https://ir.cimpress.com/news-releases/news-release-details/vistaprint-evolves-full-service-design-digital-and-print-partner

From their Q1 2022 results, posted October 27, here's a quote about how they see Deposit Photos fitting in to their plans:

"Made important strides toward delivering full-spectrum design capabilities and improving our digital relevance through continued integration of and investment in 99designs by Vista, expansion of our design help services, the signing of our strategic partnership with Wix for digital presence and commerce enablement, and the acquisition of Depositphotos and its subsidiary Crello that closed on October 1, 2021. This acquisition brings content and tools that enable businesses to create DIY designs for social media, which we have rebranded VistaCreate at vista.com/create. Strengthening our capabilities in these areas will allow us to provide a broader range of design services and digital capabilities that our customers want, but importantly also support the growth of our printed marketing products, signage, apparel and packaging, and opens up the opportunity to introduce subscription offerings packed with value for our customers. "

Everyone wants to be Canva :)
