1. You can't. Only monthly reports.
2. Mov
3. Yes. You can use 500px or EyeEm to get to Getty tho.

As far as I know, you can select which one to license (every time you upload a new one click in license) and you see if they get accepted  in the manage photos tab in your profile.

If you see them in "core collection", yes (they also have a premium collection I don't know how that work). I have the same  number next to licensing but not sure if that's how it actually works; I just started with 500px recently. Maybe anyone can confirm if that's enough?

1. After the downloads report, you can see what pictures sold by exporting the report, however via iS that only shows you the image numbers, from that you'd need to manually look up each file.

However, there are thums of the sold images via both DeepMeta when you synchronise your latest report, or TodayIs20, when you upload the csv text report. Both of these are extremely useful. I use both but personally prefer TodayIs20, but YYMV.

2. Is the info you need not covered in Submission Requirements: Video?

3. Only certain exclusive files go onto Getty to sell there directly: in theory all editorial files, which are however called 'unreleased creative', which sounds dodgy IMO, and any files which are deemed of a high enough commercial standard. The criteria don't seem to be clear and people report mixed acceptances/rejections from series, or even horizontal / vertical versions of an image.
However, all iStock images are available to a selection of Getty clients via their Premium Access scheme, the details of which are sketchy at best. These images if found, e.g. via Google, have the erroneous and also dodgy-looking message: "Sorry, we are not able to license media #XXXXXXXXX due to country, company and/or publication restrictions.", which is completely untrue. The message should read, "We are choosing not to sell this image via Getty except to our Premium Access customers". However, there is no link to iStock to where it can be bought.  ::) Insanity: but that's Getty.

hmm i cant find core collection, i've been reading that you actually get an email if photo gets accepted to Gety. Hopefully someone with more experience with 500px shows up, i am interested in this
