General Stock Discussion / Re: Clipdealer No Payment

I did you the "support" email. Also I had to quote the first three letters of my password as proof and other shenanigans.
Send the email with notice of receipt, and ask for a reply.

If it does not help, please contact me via email, if you want to go public.

Adobe Stock / Re: Adobe Stock took my money away
« on: February 20, 2019, 10:20 »
Mat, this evening I was credited with a subscription sale at $66. Is that a recurrence of the error or a valid royalty amount?

Also, I do not see adjusted amounts in the Adobe Stock contributor interface. The original sales show with their higher (unadjusted) royalties and there is no entry for an adjustment amount. The adjustments do show up in the Fotolia contributor interface.

That is a valid royalty amount Jo Ann.

Mat, when will the deductions be shown in the acitivity statistics in the Adobe Stock backend?

I deleted my account after that there.

How did you do that? I tried for several months, sending emails with all the info required for account closure described in the FAQ, but never got a reply or any action.

That way described in the FAQ worked for me (I required an reply email as confirmation). I was being a pain in their butts though, because I blogged about their business shenanigans several times, so it was probably welcomed by them to get rid off me.

If you want, we can make it public as well, just send me an email (see my contact info on my website) and we can work on the details.

Clipdealer is notorious for years for not paying out contributors on time.
Read more about it in my Blog in German (might need to use Google Translate):
https://www.alltageinesfotoproduzenten.de/2017/02/20/auszahlungen-schwierig-bei-der-bildagentur-clipdealer/

Last time I had to issue a court order to get them to pay and other photographers reported the same.
I deleted my account after that there.

Some people report that they got reply from Adobe Stock support who says the problem was active during February 6th-13th.

This means it was running eight days without anybody noticing?

This is an accounting nightmare.

I am also affected, BUT I cannot see the deductions in my Adobe Stock backend. Only on the Fotolia backend, but even there I cannot see the images affected.
I need to share revenues with my team, so this is terrible.

Wasn't Shutterstock the agency that forbids images of animal in clothing, even if they are only photoshopped?

And now they make ads with dogs in suits?

More about this tax issue here (in German though):
https://www.alltageinesfotoproduzenten.de/2018/12/12/steuerproblem-bei-adobe-stock-behoben-wie-bekomme-ich-eine-erstattung/

Seems like you have to ask for a refund.

It might have something to do with this, though I did not get that email (but I know somebody who did as well):

My views increased about 400% as well, starting on September 9th...
Sales are regular, no anomalies there.

Adobe Stock / Re: Minimum Payment Commission Increase
« on: September 25, 2018, 01:23 »
Lev Dolgachov asked on my Facebook post about the minimum commissions for the diamond rank (>1.000.000 downloads).
These stay the same at 0,40$, according to Adobe member Kirsten Harris:
https://www.facebook.com/fotoproduzent/posts/10156713812442959?comment_id=10156714138687959&reply_comment_id=10156714155022959


However, so far only one contributor (Monkey Business) reached that ranking.

Adobe Stock / Re: New feature in Adobe Stock Contributor Portal
« on: September 24, 2018, 13:14 »
We listened to you that it was too difficult to see all the details in the thumbnail to determine which releases and/or keywords are necessary. The new feature to display the full image when you hover over it addresses this.

Finally! Many thanks, I requested this many times and it it indeed very helpful when attaching releases.

When I have doubts about the source of one of my images used (for example no credits given and other hints), I simply mail the site owner and ask for a proof of license. Sometimes I get a screenshot of an agency backend back with my sale (so all is fine), sometimes I get answers like (sorry, we found this image on Google). They get mail from my lawyer then, if they are based in a country where we can successfully file a case.

"End of march" has passed for two weeks and no announcement in sight. I guess they hope we all forget about the royalty cuts and move on...

Dear Getty,

Is kicking out one of your top producing photographers because he blew the whistle on you giving images away fair?

@jjneff: Which photographer and which event are you refering to?

This might be a good time to remind of the last royalty cut stunt that 123rf pulled of some years ago:

Depends on how they define "good news".
A royalty cut for photographers might be good news for 123rf since they get a bigger share.

I posted an article in my blog about this commission cut and took the information presented here to put a commission structure comparision into a table:
https://i0.wp.com/www.alltageinesfotoproduzenten.de/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/123rf-2017-royalty-structure-07-02-_2018_09-43-26.jpg

Your Contributor Level : 2   |   Past 12 Month License Points Total : 3752

So, even with 3752 I'm still level 2.

Sorry, I missed to adjust the credits, so that the missing levels are taken into account. I just updated the table, thanks for the notification.

Interestingly here on this official 123rf "contributor guide" pages, there is still the old commission structure:

I got over 200 of these requests by mail within the last three days.
This is getting more than annoying!

I also reverted back to the old editor this evening.

How do you do that?

Did you ask the Adobe Stock support staff?
