hi i am new to this forum and quite happy i found it.anyhow i ve submited my pics   to some agencies< in ss they rejected me so i didnt bother with them  for second time specially of all the things i ve heard about them>.and then i found the Eyeem app for the iphone and the Eyeem market I  used it for some time now.and i just wanna ask if you submit your photos there as well. One thing i dont like about the eyem is that when you add your photos to their market then they are not allow you to submit the pic anywhere else.so some of my best sellers images i havent put them yet becouse of that
But the thing i like is that they accepted all of my pics so far while sites like dt and fotolia make it diff for me to have a big portofolio there becouse of their silly rejections.
But i was wondering what are your thoughts of this site.i havent seen a thread for eyem here thats why i am asking
thanks

I like eyeem a lot, but I dont think it is a place for "normal" stock content. I add files with very strong filter effects, images that are out of focus or I rework old files with 2mp that would be too small for other agencies. Also images with texture overlay from stackables etc...it is a great place to just experiment and have fun. Also a lot of testshots, that I would usually discard, add a filter to them, send them off.

I see them as an add on, not as a replacement for SS etc...smartphone photography is a different genre. At least for me.

My sales are spread all over, so I cannot really predict what sells best. But again, I am not trying to maximize income there, although sales are better than expected, especially considering all the really weird stuff I send there.

It is a fascinating, strange collection and I enjoy browsing it to unplug my mind. And it is the only place where artifacts are a bonus ;)

I still havent had a single sale from the eyeem market itself, although I have heard from people who have.

ETA: I would definitely reapply to SS!!

I agree with Cobalt, EyeEm is very different to the regular stock sites.  It provides a platform for creativity and experimentation.  I am new to the stock world (3 months) and even newer to EyeEm (a few weeks) but already I have realised that it is a potential market for not only a lot of images I have stored that I wouldn't consider sending to SS or others,  but also for some of my whackier ideas that I haven't yet tried.

However,  despite their acceptance / rejection policy being frustrating,  SS is proving to easily be my top earning site despite having half the number of images in my SS portfolio compared with the other top 4 sites.

Yep, it's a combination social networking/stock site, from what I've seen, so far. I've been posting to EyeEm Market for about a month and have over 800 images there, so far, of which the reviewers are still working on. I get notifications just about daily of approvals for the EyeEm Collection at Getty Images and have had 227, as of this morning, approved, so far. However, I have visited the Getty Images site and tried to find some mention of EyeEm Market or the EyeEm Collection there, without any results. So, I think maybe Getty is only using EyeEm Market as a "feeder" site to gather images from.

Judging by the social networking activity there and the overall poor quality of most of the photos uploaded (selfies and tourist crap), it seems more geared to the Instagram crowd than it is to stock shooters.

Cobalt, thanks for the link to what I presume is the EyeEm Collection on Getty Images(?). How does anyone search the collection, though? If my images there are discoverable, via tagging, then how does one enter any tags to search for on the collection's pages?

I think you can just add keywords to this search.

The eyeem collection is perfect as an example of unscripted/amateurish/overfiltered/instagram content. The crazy, ugly and all the overfiltering are a real bonus, making the content authentic. Artifacts are for smartphonestock, what film is for retrostock. It anchors the file in time.

But how can you predict what will sell among all this madness? I cant, so I just upload what is fun for me and enjoy any sales I get. But the majority of files only sell once, so I have no plans to organise a shoot just for eyeem. I really wouldnt know what would sell, it is really unpredictable.

However, I absolutely love browsing there, I have become totally addicted to the app and I am always experimenting with stackables and filter effects from other apps.

It is really very relaxing and the diversity and completley unscripted real world reality of the images is truly liberating after more than 10 years of stock photography.

I hope they are successful with their own marketplace, they do a great job at community building. The place is just never ever boring.

And finally I have an agency that I can recommend to all the friends and family who want to also "make money with pictures" but are completely overwhelmed with normal agencies and the professional requirements for stock. But eyeem can be joined by anyone, no special skills needed, just point your phone, take the picture and off it goes.

As you can see, I am a fan ;)

It is nice to have a place like this, in addition to all the regular stock agencies. Just browse, relax and play. Just dont expect too much and go with the flow.

The ones that go to getty are exclusive, the others can go elsewhere.

There are many more smartphone agencies out there and fotolia also has a nice collection.

Haven't tried much else yet, at the moment eyeem works for me.

You can look for your own images by searching on the Getty site using "Firstname Lastname / EyeEm" (don't forget the spaces before and after the slash). As a sample, these are mine: http://www.gettyimages.de/search/2/image?mediatype=photography&license=rf&artist=michael%20zwahlen%20%2F%20eyeem&family=creative&sort=best&excludenudity=true

However, from being accepted at EyeEm for the Getty collection it can take quite a few weeks to have them reviewed by Getty and approved. Also, there is no guarantee that the images suggested will be accepted at Getty. A huge majority does but a percentage of the images EyeEm picked for the collection never make it to Getty in the end.

Also, the images sent from EyeEm to Getty are being keyworded somewhere else, so you can not add, enter or change any of the terms that are being used.

Correct. As I read the terms, the EyeEm Market has no provisions that would exclude you from submitting images elsewhere.

However, when some of your images are suggested for the EyeEm x Getty Images collection, you will again be asked if you want your images in there. Then there are different terms that require exclusivity for those images.

You can uncheck images that you don't want in that collection, though, and only submit the ones you are willing to supply exclusively.

Sometimes I reinstall the app, I usually have the problem that the camera somehow gets stuck and I cannot get back to the portfolio page. But I have also had the problems in the screenshot.Sometimes problems are gone the next day.

Most of the time the app works well and then suddenly I have 3 days of problems.

LOL, Sean!  :)  I'm a fine art photographer, myself, and I have only recently begun posting to EyeEm, simply because I became aware that it is a Getty Images portal and I wanted to be sure to take advantage of that, as I have no qualms about establishing a periferal income stream. I shoot for my own interests and projects, though, I don't shoot with stock in mind. Nevertheless, a lot of what I've posted to the market has made it into the "shortlist" for inclusion on Getty.

I did finally find the collection, thanks. I also noticed that none of my images has made it into the collection, yet. I contacted Johanna Fulache, the Community Director at EyeEm, about this and she told me that they have a heavy backlog in getting images into the collection and have to tag them all with keywords before Getty makes its final selections, so it will be some time before we see our work there, I think, unless you got in on the ground floor last year, that is.

I have uploaded a few to Eyeem to test the water but I am not sure how the reviewing works. I know that the reviewing for Getty takes a few weeks and that they ask if you want your image at Getty but how does it work for Eyeem itself? How do I see if my images are for sale? When I click on my images it doesn't say it's for sale but maybe that's because I see the image from my own account. Do they give you info if your images are for sale or when they are rejected? I tried to go to the Marketplace but that link doesn't work. Anyone cares to tell me how it works?

On mobile app, when you are in your profile, you have small icon on left bottom of your cover image - to enter in Eyeem Market

In desktop browser you have under menu (three dots at top-right) Market Dashboard

Eyeem is not fotolia, you have to apply or be invited into their marketplace.

I enjoy EyeEm as well. At the moment, I tend to be using it more than any other app for mobile images, as well as posting some older images taken with point and shoot cameras "filtered up", which might not pass muster on other stock sites.  The web upload functionality makes it much faster to upload than some of their competitors.  I'm also using their new image recognition software through the web uploader and, I have to say, I am finding it pretty impressive.  I have used it on some other sites and its been pretty useless (and more time consuming to then unlike irrelevant keywords).  The EyeEm software isn't perfect but its pretty accurate most of the time.

My only hesitation in uploading more (or better quality images) is that, because it started as a photo-sharing site initially, large previews of the images are easily downloadable from your profile page.  I wish that you had the option to add a watermark to images selected for the Marketplace. 

« Reply #28 on: October 19, 2015, 18:11 »

The missing watermark is one of the reasons I am not yet doing shootings for eyeem and I upload, what I can risk losing. I wish they would add a beautiful watermark to the images that are for sale.

However, i think most people look at eyeem via the app, and there you dont need the watermark imo.

Still waiting for my first sale from their marketplace, i have now been with them for a year and never had one, only from getty.

It is fun though. :)

Thanks Cobalt for the motivation to submit on eyeem. i have been experimenting the last few days. Many images are selected for the Getty collection, old point and shoot and dslr images not good enough technically for classical stock agencies but that I really liked, real smartphone snapshots that capture a moment.  I'll see if something sales, but in any case it's very fun to play with filters, it is somewhat liberating to focus on emotions and composition rather than technical perfection and supposed commercial quality, with very fast editing and keywording. It'll be a good break from classical stock from time to time I think, a good reminder than photography should also be about fun.

I've had photos approved for Getty within days, myself. Usually, within no more than a week of uploading to the market.

Not exactly, Cobalt. As soon as I joined EyeEm, I began exclusively posting directly to the market. In fact, using the app for iPad, you can do that right away. There is a switch to select whether you want a post to go to the market or not and I've always set it to Market, from the very first post I ever made. Why not?

"Approved for Getty" in the sense of EyeEm suggesting it to the Getty collection? Yes, that should typically happen within a few days of uploading it ot the market.

That's not the same as seeing those images appear on the Getty site however. Images go to keywording first and then are being reviewed again on the Getty side. There is no guarantee that images selected for the Getty collection are being published on Getty in the end, and it takes a few weeks (maybe up to two months) before the images are being seen on the Getty sites.

You can't/shouldn't treat it as an agency because it actually isn't one. The main purpose of the platform is an online & mobile sharing community. It wasn't designed to ingest many images at once. They just introduced a desktop upload tool this week, probably a lot of people tried it out at once, and initial bugs/problems are to be expected as with any new feature.

Also, there was (actually is) no classic keywording. EyeEm uses an "album" system where people can share images into public galleries (instead of the hashtags Instagram is using). So any "keyword" you add is actually an album in the system.

Copy from email correspondence...


ME: One question.. If I have two similar photos, on one models have big smile on other just little smile. One is accepted on Getty via EyeEm. Can I send other on other stock sites?

Eyyem: Thanks for your reply. We had a recent update to our Getty agreements. Any images that you add to the Getty Collection that are considered royalty free are non-exclusive and can be used and sold in other places and platforms.

Me: I'm sorry but can you repeat that.
Because where ever I look (on site, help, faq, etc) it say photos on Eyeem x Getty are exclusive?

Eyeem: Thank you for your email. We are in the process of updating site to say these terms about the non-exclusive agreement, however the agreement with Getty is already in place and your any images that you approve for the Getty collection that are considered Royalty Free can be sold and used anywhere else.

It looks to me that they have changed their policy, but have no yet updated their website.

You can submit RF EyeEm/Getty images to other sites too. I'm very happy about that because I have a few images on Getty via EyeEm now, so I'll upload to the other agencies.

What I'm seeing at eyeem is a bunch of really big, unwatermarked images selling for just $20. What's the motivation to actually buy them?

I know from my direct contributions to getty that the majority of the sales will be from their premium access customers and will result in mostly pennies to the contributor.

For those contributing to eyeem, am I missing something?

I just wrote to EyeEm support about the exclusivity question and this was there reply:

"Thanks for getting in touch with us. We're happy to help you out here. Currently, per our distribution agreements images are exclusive to Getty Images, however images that you put up on EyeEm Market only are non-exclusive and can be used elsewhere. "

This is reply is in line with what is said on their site regarding exclusivity. If the image is accepted by getty then it is considered exclusive.

UPDATE: I just got another email telling me basically that the deal isn't done and as of right now all images distributed through eyeem by getty are considered exclusive.

I have found the same to be true with all mobile platforms (Snapwire, Twenty20, Foap). It's a bit annoying. But I guess all of them don't want to make it too easy to distribute your images too far.  :P

In addition, EyeEm is mainly not an agency but a community site. It doesn't really know "description" and "keywords", it allows for geotags and "albums" instead. I was hoping the new desktop upload would read out IPTC data but apparently that doesn't work either.  ???

Any more news on the exclusivity thing with Getty?
I've also been told by support about a month ago that "There is no exclusivity agreement for either EyeEm Market or Getty Images, so feel free to sell it on your own site".
Yet they still state in the agreement that "The photos in this Collection are under an exclusive distribution license. This means that they can only be sold and distributed via Getty Images and EyeEm Market".

Thats what support told me:

"I do apologize for that confusion there. My team has given me the latest, which is that since new agreements are not yet available on documents, images will remain exclusive to Getty. Again, sincerest apologies for that miscommunication there as this has been a recent update. Until further notice, please refer to the distribution agreements available on your Market Dashboard and consider images exclusive to Getty."

I also made a few sales and I really like the platform. Problem is about exclusivity, support tells me (for the 4th time) that there's no more exclusivity with Getty, although their distribution agreement says otherwise.
I'm sure I would have more sales if I could send my non-exclusive files to Getty, but I can't do that until they change the agreement.

"By adding a photo to EyeEm Market, you additionally grant us the non-exclusive right..."

"In case we require exclusive rights, we will always ask for your consent separately."
Thank you

Has anyone noticed any difference in the manner in which images selected for the Collection appear in the Market Dashboard in the transition to the new terms of service?  Normally, probably 80-90% of my images were selected for the collection - though some I couldn't agree to because of the exclusivity requirement.  I uploaded a batch shortly before the official changeover in terms in mid-May, and I was surprised that none of that batch of images appear in the Collection tab.  Especially so, since I have actually started uploading better quality images, and the ones uploaded recently were certainly better than many accepted previously.  Is anyone noticing a change in selection criteria?  Or is it a reflection that the 'collection' tab isn't updating now that images don't have to be approved?

Yes, I also noticed some changes in the selection. Less photos are accepted into the collection but I'm not sure what the criteria is. It's not sharpness as far as I can tell, and it's not the subject either. I think they are picking the authentic mobile photography pics. Not complaining.

In a German facebook group a team member said there was a bug they were working to resolve.

We had all noticed that suddenly files where no longer chosen for collection, one artist had 100 files without collection approval, so it looked weird, we couldnt all have uploaded lower quality at the same time.

Eyeem is working to resolve the bug and our files apparently have been approved in the usual way, they just dont yet show up under the collection tab.

I asked if I should delete and reupload files, but they asked me not too, better to wait for the tech people to solve the problem for everyone.

Thank you for this info! Will just wait and see what happens in next few days

Today the older files were approved for collection, and the same happened to others in the German facebook group.

Looks like they found the bug.

Were all your files approved?
A few of my older files passed the approval too but not all of them. I was expecting some of my travel/editorial sharp and in good light photos to pass also.

Thank you

Nobody knows the details of their distribution deals with getty, alamy or whitewall.

It is the same with all the other agencies that work with distributors.

I've just made my first sale on Eyeem via Getty. I also got $5.
It's funny because it is an old photo with a canon s90 point and shoot that I really like and would never been accepted by a classical microstock agency.

If Getty are giving them 20% your sale would only be for $50!

So, they don't check if an image was taken with a digital camera? It doesn't have to be made with a smartphone?

Itś a photo community built around their smartphone app. So you can upload images taken from your smartphone or you use their webupload and use any camera you like.

It is a community first and I have never heard you must use a smartphone. Most of my pics there were taken with normal digital cameras.

You can also shoot film and scan it.

Thank you! I misunderstood the concept.
They look interesting.
