* The best way of submitting future images? The 'Call for artists' was a one time submission to gain an invite to submit, from what I understand. Do I just upload future images to flickr and hope that an editor sees them??


Just found the answer here http://www.microstockgroup.com/general-macrostock/getty-filckr-question/

For those invited, you submit to a private group a max of 100 per month to this flickr group http://www.flickr.com/groups/artistpicks/ The editors will pick from this pool..

* Will it affect my Gettyimages account through iStock? Do they just merge? Is there any conflict in having both of them?

Josh

I'm also curious about this. You find anything out?

Received an invite last night to submit five out of the ten images I made available back in December!! The invite states for "possible inclusion" - so I'm not there yet. Note the submission of new images for consideration is closed until mid-April to allow catch up and maybe some of you will get invites this week.

Anyway, reading the posts here from Jeff et al, I'd be stupid not to go for this opportunity - and don't believe it will affect my work for IS,SS etc since the images I put up for consideration were geared specifically towards the GT/FL collection and not traditional stock.

I would be interested to hear from more stockers re how it is going for them since signing up though. And one specific question, I understand they look for 30-50mb files?? Which means a new hard drive for me or maybe a new PC

Cheers, Ed

Now that Getty's artist's picks has reopened I'd like to ask photographers who submit to both, Getty and microstock, if they would be willing to share their experience regarding if one model makes more money for them as a whole than the other. Also, is there any criteria regarding what images goes where, how do you determine which images to place with Getty and which to place with the micro agencies. I have some new images and I'm just not sure where I should place them. I had 5 images selected to Getty / Flickr just a few months ago and before I could add more, they closed the artists picks for six weeks. From what I have read so far regarding this, and it hasn't been a lot, sounds like overall people make more money from images placed on Getty versus the micros. I'm not talking about per image sales, I'm talking their overall RPI for X amount of images on Getty versus X amount on the micros. Hope that makes sense. Thanks.

I'm a Getty macro contributor as well as micro...March RF sales on Getty...35 sales at an average of 34.62 from a collection of 212 images...micro comes nowhere near that return. If you can get images on Getty macro then do it...micro returns are a pittance in comparison...and becoming more so each month.

Does anyone know what percentage Getty normally pays? I suppose at least they are keywording for their 80 (or 70%), but it seems like Getty is trying to get 80% Getty and 20% artist to become their standard.

Getty are image exclusive unless you are istock exclusive. This is odd seeing as they are the ones that ended the old agency exclusive deals in favor of image exclusive.

Their rates are 20% for royalty free, RM is 40% for your home territory (eg USA) and 30% outside your home territory.

From my limited knowledge, they pay 20% regardless of brand, licence type etc (although I wouldn't be surprised to find that there are a few people around who get more). Their big analomy are the istock exclusives (imo 1 of the 3 main reasons for thinkstocks existence). Aside from istock they are pretty much always shoot exclusive, heard of a number of people that are basically Getty exclusive (through choice), not sure whether this is the norm though.

Hi all, interested to try it out..


what i understand is you should upload 10 pictures in flickr and put in the 'call for artists' pool? and just wait?

the photos has to be exclusive to flickr-getty right?

do we need a paid 'professional' flickr account to hold porfolio? thanks.
