I can't understand the system at EyeEm. My images are released for sale - but not at EyeEm ..? Maybe at EyeEm 'partners' ...??? What's going on? I have tried to communicate with EyeEm but I don't understand  their answers. Can somebody enlighten me?

EyeEm has a market and partners (Getty). Your pictures can be sold on both or just their market. Each picture you select to be on market will be subjected to be selected to partner.

I have images on EyeEm. About half of my images are on EyeEm and the other half are on the EyeEm partners. It seems for me the only sales I get are from the partners. I have never had any sales on the EyeEm only. The sales are fairly good on the partner sites.

As far as I know, they only use Getty even if they say those partners. Anyone actually know if they have EyeEm pictures in alamy or AS?

Maybe they notify ONLY Getty but actually have them on Alamy or AS? I doubt it. The whole process of tagging is very getty-related (their own keywords).

I think it's worth it if you have pictures that are more artsy and not so stocky. It's a little bit social which I don't mind neither.

For me to be honest no. I think its one of those sites that works well for those with the right content. The Upload/Tagging process is horrible and time consuming.  But try it out its the only way to know if it works for you.

Upload only the ones you think might be accepted based on their style. Keywording is not as bad since Getty actually destroys it after selection lol. It is also useful to follow ideas and inspiration. I like their app, it's the only one good looking. I prefer EyeEm over 500px to access to Getty.

OK, thanks guys for the advice! I think I might try that out for a few months and see how it works. It seem to be a bit different from the others.

Every other site I can upload the metadata from the JPG for Eyeem I have to enter each word individually. I can't even copy and paste a block of text. Or have I missed something?

You are right. I normally use the suggested and add some manually but really it doesn't matter since Getty mess that up

Yes - it's a bit of a drag to fill in the keywords one by one. And they also have AS and Alamy as partners. And AS don't accept duplicates so it's difficult. Do the parteners notice you if they have your images on their sites ..?

I like EyeEm very much, the photos look very good, they accept a high average of photos and I sell with them. But the best thing is the payment system ... IMMEDIATELY sell and collect what you sell !!! ESo speaks of a healthy company without debts all day.

The sales that were reported yesterday happened in DECEMBER on Getty. And NO direct sales have not been reported for at least 2 months. They are NOT reported real time!

Anyone seen major drop in earnings this month? I've been selling 200-300 images on Eyeem every month, and this month I got only 65 downloads. Earnings also went 75% down comparing the previous months.

Yep, same here. Big drop in partner sales compared to previous months. But I had some direct sales through their own marketplace about two weeks ago. Hadn't seen one of those in a while.

Isn't that shooting yourself in the foot if you upload to Alamy and AS as well as Eyeem? If two identical images are accepted, you'll surely get less commission from Eyeem as you'll get the distributor price vs standard royalties on AS and AL.

Since they mess up the metadata via EyeEm, the picture can appear in different type of searches...

I don't think Eyem partner with Alamy as far as I can see the only partner they actually have is Getty.
