I can't believe I pasted in the wrong image!  ROFLROFLROFL  I'm an idiot and it's late and it's tax week.  I love my life.

The second picture here was rejected for "similar" to the first.  You know  - a whole loaf of bread on a cutting board vs. one serving on a plate closeup.  I dunno, didn't strike me as similar.





I'm a big believer in the LONG tail.  28 sales, $50 in 2 years on 3000 images - that's NO tail.  Time to lose this site - I closed up just a few mins ago.

They were doing better and then decided to change and be more like everyone else - let's see subscriptions and start rejecting a lot of stuff, let's tighten the collection, change the site like everyone else has, modernize... Good job, you became Crestock.

I need to go learn iStock so I can make an extra $0.50 a month to make up for the loss of this site.

At least I got a fast reply - 3 days to close account.  Seems fair - good deal.

If you go exclusive with them youll make a lot more!   Atleast 1,75$/months...

Ps. You said it yourself, Learn Istock and you wont have to try all those worthless sites.

?????

If you learned iStock you should make much, much more than an extra $.50 a month.  Sharply_Done recently said it best... those who are successful at microstock, are successful at iStock.  Those who aren't, aren't.  Any ms veterans out there disagree?  Anyone doing this full time disagree?

Sarcasm not your strong suit?

Your comment about iStock seemed to be in line with your other posts on the subject... explaining why you don't see the point in submitting to IS.  Sarcasm or not, you really should put the effort into building an iStock portfolio... that strategy, more so than anything else, will help you get from Nil to Mil.

I agree - and I KNOW that iStock can be a great producer - maybe even for me.  I already make more than .50 on iStock though so sorry, yes, I was being a bit funny.  iStock has a lot more potential than FP - obviously.

Lol!

What apples and monkeys... It is that they are the same isn't it?

Anyhow, that two images aren't similar at all except for subject!

;-)

http://www.featurepics.com/helpcenter/uploadrules.html - interesting move. Apparently most subjects are now rejected by FP, including studio people photos. They are trying to be original... Presumably people in life scenes will still be accepted as well as industrial pics.... and that's about it :) Ah yes, also vehicles.

Thank god I got out when I did!! It never was a big producer for me...only sold one pic on there before they made the change and that was with a port over 300.

I forgot completely about FP for months. I checked in today and am pleased to announce that, yep, it was a dog last year and it still is a dog.
