In the short time that Ive been reading the MSG Ive noticed that people are constantly asking who is this company, how did they get my images and are they legit?  Generally it turns out to be a partner of some sort, but there is no central list of partners, so I thought Id start one. 

Im going to classify as a partner anyone that has a relationship with a microstock company that results in that company appearing to have our images for sale or use.     

Ive listed the micros that Ive been following, and the partners that Ive identified (or have been suggested/claimed to be a partner), with a link to a confirmation or at least a discussion of the partner and its relationships to one of the micros.  Im not following everyone and Im sure Ive missed lots of stuff, so Id welcome your input.

1-27-13 - Sorry not to update sooner, but I'm no longer able to post process/upload stock (wrist problems) so I don't come here all that often.  Given that its 10 months since my last update and I could only find 2 new items to add, not sure that I'll make any more updates to this list.

Opt out possible? 

Opt out possible? - It is messy. - independent contributors can no longer opt out.  Exclusives can opt out of the "partner program", but not from having their content moved to a "similar or higher priced collection"

Good grief! I had no idea there were so many ways to slice a pie. You'd think our businesses would be booming with all that exposure.

Wow, that is an awesome list, sadstock. You did a lot of work.

I have an addition to BigStock, as I found my images there. Feel free to add to your list.
It's called frontfoto... here is the link   http://image.qianwenhua.com/     it is a china-based company

Nice work, much appreciated!

It would be great if this #1st post could be updated as soon new affiliates are known. Great resource!

canstock is owned by fotosearch so not really a partner.

panther has page full of partners

I thought fotolia let you opt out, I remember a while asking if I could opt out of one specific one and they said all or nothing

What a fantastic list. Thank you for the effort. It is truly appreciated.

Glad people like it.  I found the process of assembling the list to be very useful.  Thanks all for the updates which I've added in.  Please let me know if I missed anything.  

For some reason I though you could opt out of Fotosearch, but seems not to be the case.

Wow, great list - thanks for all the work.  I think I should make this topic sticky so it doesn't get lost.  Can I add this info to the wiki?

Age Photostock has got some of mine from Panther Media but not from Fotolia, so I wonder if the Fotolia connection is still valid (they don't seem to put micro agency names on the search page, just marking anything from a micro as a budget price image, you can see the agency if you open the thumbnail).

I sent a copyright infringement notice after seeing my image on a site called allfreelogo.com. They replied they were an affiliate of Dreamstime. I have no idea if this is true, the website does look odd and what it offers isn't quite clear to me.

I'd check that with DT.  It looks as if they have harvested major company logos so you can download them for use in projects - e.g. if you are doing a design job for a local franchise of that company. The appearance suggests that they make their money from referral links, so why DT would be associated with anything like that is a mystery.

Thanks for the great information. I didn't know about all the partners. --- ritasue

Thanks for this. Good work and useful reference to have as a sticky.

thank you for the hard work. way more than I would have guessed. it would be even more valuable to see a profile for each site...not suggesting you should do that work too, but would help to know how much or little 'space' each partner site takes up in the industry.

Thanks for making it a sticky, hope its helpful to people.  Feel free to add it to the wiki as well. 

The BS secrecy that most of the micros wrap their partner programs in pisses me off, so let's share it around.  Honestly does anybody think that if a micro wanted to duplicate DT or FT's partner program it would take them more than a day to find all of them?  Really?  All it does is make it hard for contributors to know where their images are and if they are being paid correctly.

Thanks a lot for your efforts in compiling this!  Can't believe how many different sites I am on without knowing it.  Yikes!

Not to call shenanigans, but this Pixmac thing is still a mystery to me. Everyone says they canceled their partnership, but my images there have increased since January.

how about pond5 with pictures coming from 123RF, I have found it today got a few pictures at pond5, like half of 123RF

I don't understand that either.

Usually they say it takes 60 days to get images off of partner programs, but since everything is electronic, I am fascinated as to why it takes that long to walk over to the computer, look up a persons account, and delete it. I may have oversimplified a tad, and I understand that people have other work to do, but I can't understand why accounts can't be deleted and images stopped from moving to partner programs within a week or two. Maybe someone has a detailed explanation as to the exact steps that are required for deleting a person's account from a computer and how the API software works? Or is that a national security secret?  ;)

Not a Partner as such but 123RF also sell through their parent site Inmagine.com. What's interesting is that Inmagine are now also selling editorial images from 123RF. This is pretty new I think as they weren't last time I looked (in fact their Contributor faq page still says that they do not take editorial). Could be one reason why I have had an increasing number of editorial sales at 123 recently. Regards, David.

Nice work.

I didn't see if someone answered, but SS does not partner images to BigStock. It's a fully owned division. People can Opt. in, via "the bridge" or choose not to, but we can also upload to BigStock and then have the same thing. Images aren't in a partner program like the normal way the term is used.

Interesting list and hopefully it will grow as new partners are discovered.

Agreed not a partner program, but still think they should be on the list for completeness sake.  Maybe change the name of this thread to "a list of places your images could show up without having uploaded them there directly."   ;D

Thanks for the input Newsfocus1 & luissantos84.  I've added both Pond5 andInmagine.com to 123RF's list.

Correct, the One Way bridge does go from SS to BigStock. Also it's only done with the prior approval of SS asking and the artist saying yes. But still, it's good to make a note that pictures from SS do appear on BigStock, in case someone forgets they said OK you can move my pictures.  ;D

The rest of them, are often a mystery and the agencies don't list who they partner with. My answer was easy. Drop all of them and go with only SS & IS and their partners, so I know how my pictures got out on the web. Two is easier to figure out. Might be an old age thing in my case?

A good list, keep it going.

Nice work.
