Maybe this whole change in our normal royalties thing was just a distraction so no one concentrates on "The Agency Collection" addition to istock. Lol

What are you views specifically on the new "The Agency Collection"?

Why try and turn a Microstock site into a traditional stock site?

Surely its just going to be annoying to customers who have obviously come to a Microstock site for microstock prices. "oh wow check out this photo its perfect for my poster....doh!!! its one of those blooming Agency Collections"

Hi anc

 Thanks for the heads up. Are you aware of the pricing, do you have a link you could possibly share?

Thanks,
Jonathan

Here is an example:



Now, granted, this image was later retracted, and iStock tried to gloss it over as being an accident, but that is still for sale at Getty for $500 and on that 'exclusive' photographer's own website for $699.

Here is an example:

{very soft, poorly exposed snapshot with on camera flash has been removed}

Oh Yeah Baby! I can get into that collection. :)

How do I apply?
