This was suggested long ago.  I'm glad they finally implemented it.  I haven't checked the details yet (price, commissions).

Didn't Bigstock try this a few years back? I don't think they had much success.

If the commission is nothing. I want to opt out of others buying a print made from my images. If I can't opt out, I will delete my profile. I asked about this and I am waiting for an answer.

No commissions are mentioned on the site or in a recent email to members. >:(

This is what really bothers me about microstock agents today: "Artist / Source    FeaturePics" Seems like everytime they 'share' the photographers images across to another web site, the photographer suddenly loses their own copyright notice, everything now promotes FeaturePics rather than the photographers name, plus I find it misleading, as if they own the copyright on all the images.. why bother displaying copyright on their own site, and losing it when things are shared.. can't be that hard to have Artist: myname surname Source: FeaturePics, just one of the reasons I gave up on agents!

"Artist / Source    FeaturePics" - the images that are in "galleries" HAVE BEEN PURCHASED.
If somebody orders a print, the high resolution image will be purchased by this company from our site.

The printing company does not use our Purchase API. They have an account with us as a regular client.
If somebody orders a print, the image will be purchased by this company from our site.
The commission is the same 50%.

It seems like marketing is busy on Featurepics...

They are trying to boost sales as it seems.

If you find your image under "subjects" (for example at http://www.canvasartdesigns.com/abstracts/

it means the image HAS BEEN PURCHASED to be available for display under "Subjects".
If somebody orders a print, the High resolution image will be purchased by this company from our site.

Search:
(example
http://www.canvasartdesigns.com/featuresearch.php?str=beach
)

The company is USING OUR API to show small thumbnails.
Please check the the urls - all of them are pointing to FeaturePics.com

Again, if somebody orders a print, the High resolution image will be purchased by this company from our site.

The images will be purchased for A SINGLE reproduction on canvas (only personal use).

The Business extension license will be purchased in other cases.

I have not seen you post....

I saw

A few questions/suggestions from Madelaide
- How much do we make from this?

50% as usual

- Isn't it possible to show our name at Canvas Art Designs? It only shows Featurepics in the credits.

I will communicate this concern to Canvas Art Designs asap.

- Why only standard prices (=microstock) are in this program?

It was a request from CanvasPrints. They are selling prints for ~$40-$50 dollars and can not purchase a digital image for $80.


Thank you, Elena.

Elena, I didn't post anything on the FP forum, I emailed you thru the site's contact, from which I got a very prompt reply from you with the information requested, that together with this post here on MSG, answered all of my questions.

Thanks for all the info.

I agree!!!

I have the answer regarding the copyright issue:

"Yes, we can add the artist name on the see details order page.
We will do today. Also, we will put a note at the bottom that the artist owns all copyright. "

Thank you very much, Elena.

Thank you Elena for your replies and for the fast interaction with Canvas Art regarding the copyright issue.

Now that we understand how the deal between FP and Canvas Art is, here are some questions:
- if the buyer orders more than one copy of a print, will CA be requested to buy multiple licenses?
- if a second separate order on the same image is done, will CA buy the image again?
- if I understood you correclty, CA is paying for a regular license, not a volume package, right?

Did you close the forum?  It doesn't load anymore.  :-\

Sorry, I'm still unlcear as to our cut. Prints on the site range from $40 - $120 or so. If a buyer purchases a print for $120, what is our net from FP?

Forum - no, we didn't close it. We are moving it to another server.

if the buyer orders more than one copy of a print, will CA be requested to buy multiple licenses - yes
if a second separate order on the same image is done, will CA buy the image again - yes
if I understood you correclty, CA is paying for a regular license, not a volume package - I cannot restrict clients to buy volume pakcages.
But it has no sense to purchase 800px/1000px images for prints.

Thank you!

A 'Royalty-Free License' grants you non-exclusive rights to reproduce the image for a single reproduction on canvas or other material.

CD will buy image licenses behalf of their clients on our site and pay the prices stated on our site.

Thanks!
