They are going to implement one soon, but you could always go in via http://www.FeaturePics.com/index030106.aspx my link if you wish  - this way you can see what they offer in the way of home pages for their photographers :)

I understand that they have just added a "referred by" in their registration form as well.  This is a growing company that responds fast to customer requests

I currently have 6 downloads from FeaturePic's as well but my prices are set at $1 so revenue is not much. I think once I start getting more downloads, I will start increasing the price.

I have also noted with them that they accept anything. Has anyone had any rejections yet??

Sounds like a place to sign up then especially if they are not sooo fussy.

I had a big scan-fest of lots of 6 x 4 photos from trips around the USA, I corrected them for noise etc but have got most of them refused by agencies for being soft or having dof issues with the exception of 123rf who took them all.

So it wold be nice to have them somewhere else after all that hassle.

Just signed up.

Hey why did nobody mention they accept anything bigger than 600 x 800. This is excellent as the only other site that i know of that are interested in such sizes is Big Stock. Though i have yet to try.

So now finally i can display photos from trips abroad where i was squeezing photos onto the memory card.

i guess because most people dont have photos that small.  However I can see how it could be helpful if you have lots of old photos.  My first camera was a 5mp and I have always taken on highest setting as I never saw the point in having a low res photo.

My first camera was a 2mp pixel I bought it in Hawaii with a 256 meg card whilst on holiday and took everything at 1024 x 768 DOH!!

Well at least my pictures from that trip and others have a chance to be seen and sold.

I notice at the bottom of the FeaturePics page it reads

"unique images found nowhere else in the world"

So the photos are exclusive to them or just a catchy line?? I didn't see that anywhere else on that site, not a problem for small pictures.

I just spoke on the phone with one of the site owners for FeaturePics.  He's a great guy and says they're looking for lots more good photos.  It would be nice to see this site grow--competition's a good thing.

I keep hearing good things about feature pics, but I am still digging in my heals for some reason.... the upload process is allright, but still seems a bid finiky, filling in all those fields, and having to click back to the main 'waiting' photos page after each page... not a problem if I was only going to upload 10 images, but 100's or 1000's a few seconds per image makes a differance...

I guess i am not sure it would be worth the time spent yet... if the downloads are there.

I agree, there are lots of things they could do to make it quicker, like having some feilds set to the last used setting - ie photo, royalty free, price and the name, it puts the name of the file beside the file it needs to go in (that might be an issue with using pixvue).

Be wary of their galleries wizard I thought it was similar to can Stock's just arranging a group of thumbnail but instead it groups six photos together and then lets anyone right click and get your picture 412 x 550 for free. Ok too small to do anything with but still a bit annoying. I suppose not so bad if its a big image so people will be willing to pay for the full size version.

At the moment I am just uploading foreign pictures too small for everywhere else, they only have 10,000 images so plenty of room for additions. I had a few clicks but no downloads yet.

I really like featurepics, I have no sales yet, since I am uploaded only 3 days ago, but the pricing ist great! And it is much faster then even Shutterstock, through the search for the categories. I would prefer it much over the other websites, if the sales starts to come.

Well I have given them a full review of what i think of their upload page.. I hope they take it to heart and make some changes, and I would like to upload to them, but don't find it worth it with their upload as it is now.

Just had my first sale of a photo of NZ 1024 x 768 for $2 so I should be able to sell my 8mp photos for a few bucks and I very impressed by my 70% cut.

One problem I noticed at the moment they send you a cheque when you reach $50, which for any non-US photographers is very bad as I doubt we will see anything after the bank takes it handling fee for converting to local currency.

I have just e-mailed them regarding introducing Paypal, moneybooker or at the very least sending a bigger cheque.

Will let y'all know of their reponse.

Definately seems the site to watch.

they do paypal.

Go to Change profile and there is a spot at the bottom to put your address for paypal.

We are using PayPal (and MoneyBookers) transactions. You can update your profile and add your PayPal address. We are going clear it with next release.
We have been busy installing our new server, and tomorrow or the next day, you will see it on the site;

I don't who was quicker CJphoto or Featurepics, very refreshing to have such fast feedback from a micro stock

I got an email from feature pics saying that they are going to make the upload process better (use the object name as the image name, and have the default price and image licensing boxes default value taken from your last image).  Additionaly they will have a button to 'edit next image' instaed of just taking you back to the unedited images ages.

sounds like good things are in store. (they said they were hoping to make the changes this weekend)
