Someone has sold any image in Picfair ?

I have been sending images over a year and I have not had a single sale. In other banks my downloads exceed the 5000... Someone passes it as to my ?
I have two sales one in 2015 and other in 2016 with around 300 images no other sales after that

Adobe Stock / Re: Editorial Video in Adobe?

Indeed. We are not talking about newsworthy stuff just non released people and property. Also trademarks. That sells a lot in SS...

Thanks everyone for chiming in on this important topic.  Love  and do know that we're always evaluating what can be done to make our service and our contributors more successful.

Out of curiosity, how many people here are talking about video vs photos?


Photo and video from me

Alamy.com / Re: Longest wait to get paid?
« on: March 06, 2019, 15:24 »
So far im waiting on some payments from back in october to clear. I know alamy tends to run a little slower then the other sites with getting funds to clear, but is this normal? Thought normally its only 30-90 days, not almost half a year.

Hmm, never happens to me, always on time  :(

I prefer by default to be shown Activity, not Top sellers as i know which they are and they're not changing every day. So if i need several times per month or week i can simply filter Top sellers, but what i check every day is Activity.

I do too, but today, after updating my computer (whole long story, no one cares...)  ;) I now see this? I don't remember all these choices before.

I was happy to see top sellers lists files by total income. Activity just reinforces what I get in the emails, or I can look back at the week.

Same with me, great I am not alone :)

Summary of last week (week ending Jan 27):

Total moles identified: 250

Moles wacked (by SS) from Jan 20 - 26: 120

Moles pending: 130+ (new accounts identified today)


Complete list:


Small victory but huge huge challenges ahead...

General Stock Discussion / Re: My Youtube Stock Video Life

For those interested I have stared my youtube channel. I have been living on stock video for 9 years now and want to try my hand at something new. I have a Winner & Loser series "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r19J4kHCYik&t=43s" weekly plus a lot of tips on how I survive as a stock video artist. Would love if you are interested to subscribe :-)  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwoU327B927MD49NNf16gxw/videos?view_as=subscriber
Hi guys I am subscriber to booth channel from you https://www.youtube.com/dashboard?o=U I already follow John and I really appreciate your work from both of you and sharing your experience. I am not YT expert but love learn from fellow photographer, videographer and other stock surveyors. Good luck and many new ideas.

  I think Adobe is doing great with video.

For those hitting the 300 mark, how long from then before you receive notification?
It's been about a week since my #300 accepted, but then I only receive sporadic notifications on other notifications (upload, make a sale, etc.)
I hit 300 two days ago and I am interesting to know also

Seen so many of these threads, figured I may as well start one :)

Apparently some "good news" from Alamy everyone should be happy about! Commissions going from 50% to 40%! YAY!

Comment below.
I just read this ,,great,, news

General Stock Discussion / Re: November Sales
« on: November 28, 2018, 14:50 »
I thought I would start the topic for November sales. Sadly, due to poor sales on Shutter my November looks to be worse that what I made even compared to 2014/2015 years. I am sure there will be newbie's claiming BME but I wonder how the veteran's are doing?

So far best November from 2008 for me and also best month from 2008

I have same ,,luck,, yesterday :(   "Frame rate / Shutter speed: The clip displays issues related to frame rate or shutter speed."
Was accepted everywhere but not on SS.

Not a complaint thread, but I am interested because March was actually very good, and April may be less than half.
So far March is cca 30% better

Any photo sales at all?  I've got 350 images up there, and nary a peep.  Should I keep wasting my time?
I sold last video in October 2016 and no photo at all. Dead for me :(

Is anyone here who upload to motionelements?
how are sales there?
Exist, but very rare ...but I have only very small portfolio there (around 100 videos)

I film often in bright sunlight. you can see the colors of clothing reflected off of people's faces.

I want to buy a new camera. what should I look for in a camera in order to make sure it does the best job in regards to filming in bright sunlight?

I read that high ISO is important. would it be true to buy the camera with the highest ISO range?

I currently use the SONY FDR AX100.

any advice is appreciated.
??? Hmmm  :(

anything remotely topical or natural history is well irrelevant!
Sales are never great here (!) but this can't help!
Same here from March But better than Dissolve for video, I am waiting from last year for processing :(
