His content is in ADOBE too now.
https://stock.adobe.com/contributor/210716081/peopleimages-com?as_campaign=ftmigration2&as_channel=dpcft&as_campclass=brand&as_source=ft_web&as_camptype=acquisition&as_audience=users&as_content=closure_contributor-page

I wonder what his reasoning was for abandoning exclusivity:

1- Did not reach for the first time the 45% target
2- Sees no future for Getty. A company with a huge debt. Going to the stock market might give them a break but their financial health is really bad
3- sees that with the demise of SS and Oringer selling everyday his stock Adobe is beggining to look as the main player in 3-5 years. Getty and SS will be very far behind

Whatever the reason, there was a time he gave his explanations to the stock community. i wonder if this will be again the case or if he will remain silent. I wonder if we will see his portfolio at Shutterstock?

I would guess his port will be at all the significant agencies.

I wonder about that too, he misses not only iStock-sales but Getty's too which still can be very good.
That would be great if he doesn't join SS again, but I think he will.
I don't think he can make up the loss he is facing in leaving iStock-exclusivity. But we will never know only if he is back at IS exclusivity in a year so. Lol:)

I have been exclusive at istock. Earned more before becoming exclusive, and more after quitting exclusivity.
Istock exclusivity saves your time, thats all. And being exclusive at istock, you cannot submit RF images to other agencies.

I think DT has always done better in Europe, so maybe that is Yuri's thinking? You have to have so many baskets for your eggs these days as earnings wax and wane ... look at how far ss has fallen while Adobe has taken over the top spot. I'm surprised he's not with Adobe, especially since they have their higher end collections. But I assume those require real exclusivity.

I haven't uploaded to dreamstime in ages, but uploaded 11 files today and the first 7 were accepted while I was finishing checking the keywords on the last 3, which they also took - really fast.  And no "similars" issues despite all being the same theme.

Dreamstime is weird for me, I once made $325 on a $750 one-year EL of an image that is one of the highest amounts I've earned on a single license, but usually with my small portfolio of 365 images, I'm lucky to get one payout a year. It's generally my lowest earner. But I don't shoot the same content as Yuri. I'd guess he knows what he's doing.

Apparently he is not earning much as well. This amount is a funny number for Yuri for an entire year. He might have thought that this was better than nothing :D

Stupid question maybe but how do you get this info (the screenshot above) for a contributor? Or do you have to have a buyer's account to see that at Shutterstock?

The above screen capture is from Dreamstime not SSTK. That would explain how?
