No, I am saying I make my own decisions. All the content I have on Getty comes via partners, I gave up my House contract in 2013.

And the content that goes there via eyeem is content where I can live with the risk that getty can at absolutely any moment come in and do something horrible.

I have content for all price points and different marketplaces, even very risky ones.

If EyeEm was mostly selling directly, I might give them better content, but it is what it is and the risk determines what they get.

Same for twenty20. When they paid 10 dollars they got better files.

At 30 cents, they will get what is appropriate for those returns.

But the most aggressive race to the bottom is happening at gettyimages, which is a huge gorilla in the market. twenty20 is a tiny fly.

Getty is the one leading the downturn with their 2 cent sales and free give aways. Think of the people who lost their content to 400 million Google plus users. But they were paid....6 dollars.

What Getty does affects the entire industry.

twenty20 is place most people have never heard of.

But I like them for people who are completely new to stock, they can learn a lot there, it is very useful and the app is beautiful and user friendly.

Envato acquired Twenty20. I am not sure if their relationship are active but i've been seeing a increase in downloads.

How can it get any worse than  gettyimages?

These people gave my files away for free over 1.3 million times...

I'd say for now I have more faith in twenty20. Whatever you potentially accuse them of, Getty has already done to thousands of producers.

It is not a major player anyway, they are a tiny outfit. They are not going to be the next Shutterstock.

But they have a really lovely gallery system, the most useful I know from any agency.

If you sign in, terms state you need to accept you grant them access to give your assets for free for promotional reasons. Does this mean the monthly freebies they distribute or other promos we do not know about? Also has someone understood the price range contributors will earn from photos?

Who knows?  If you can figure it out good for you:
"Net Revenue: Gross subscription revenue less all fixed fees payable to Contributors for Items downloaded, taxes (including VAT, GST and other transactional taxes paid by us or the buyer), refunds, reversals, affiliate costs, costs we incur in relation to services offered as part of the Envato Twenty20 subscription (including, without limitation, amounts we agree to pay to third party service providers and other costs we incur in making those services available to customers), costs we incur in commissioning or directly licensing content for Envato Twenty20 from non-contributors, discounts and promotional offers, and payment processing fees. Subscription revenue received in currencies other than US dollars (for example, Euro) will be converted to US dollars prior to the calculation of the Net Revenue in US dollars."

If they sell a monthly subscription for $99 and the buyer licenses 1,000 images (it's unlimited so someone could download every image on the site) you would get ($99 - taxes - refunds - affiliate costs - other costs - promos - processing fees)/1,000.
