Hi,
On sites that pay less commission do you still upload at full resolution or do you downsize? If you downsize what resolution do you resize to?

full size everywhere unless I have downsized to improve focus on something that was a tad soft or in a few cases with panoramas where the site's maximum file size was too small for my image.

For places like SS, the on demand sales have two size groups so you'd be losing out on a good chunk of money by only having small sizes available there. That necessitates the full size being available for subs downloads too

I'd say as big as you can get accepted. The reason is, some places have rejected images that were 24MP for "soft at full size" which is kind of stupid! So I make them 8MP and they are fine?

What I'm getting at, is that the same image at full size, can be rejected, and making it smaller, makes it pass review, only because they are viewed at full size for evaluation. People aren't going to use a 24MP image most of the time?

Where do they list the two size groups for On Demand? I looked and couldn't find anything about that? I might want to be keeping some things up on the lower limits of whatever the top tier is. I looked at Images "On Demand" Pay As You Go, I don't see anything about sizes for photos?

It's too much work to make different sizes for different sites, except as jsnover noted, a panorama might be too large for a particular site. So they all get the same size from me.

In the earnings schedule it spells out that some type of on demand allows only small or medium sizes ($1.24 each) and the other allows any size ($2.85 each). I looked at the pricing page and don't see the options mentioned. Perhaps that's something you have to contact them about? I do know that I see both royalty amounts, so someone has these!

Thanks. I was thinking I'm going blind.

Now I need to figure out what's "small or medium" and how big is an "any size". Probably won't change much except if I am downsizing and it's on the edge of being a bigger size, I should leave it just over that.

My theory otherwise is my "CrapStock" should be as small as possible which would make it less offensive?   ;)
