Are we only going to get sales information with the monthly statements on the 20th of each month. If so, this page seems kind of pointless.

I've just found this page, with lots of 'official info' about Royalties access, I didn't know of before (been there since Mid-Dec, apparently!). However, I'm not sure which passwords/ID you need to see it.
https://contributors.gettyimages.com/HelpArticle.aspx?article_id=5191

The "official info" is confusing, as usual. According to my reading, we should start seeing the chart for the "current month" once the first transaction occurs -- i.e. today, in the case of my last sale. Which clearly is not happening.

I'm curious -- is ANYONE seeing charts on that page? According to the "official info," other people who make a lot more sales than I do should be seeing them.

If not, then what IS must really mean is that the "current month" is actually the 20th of next month. So my sale on Feb. 6 should show up on March 20.

Again, over the years, most (all?) of iStock's communications have been extremely ambiguous; so much so that I can't believe it isn't intentional.

There is a gofundme page set up to raise money from iStock Exclusives to pay for a party.

https://www.gofundme.com/thank-you-from-istock-exclusives

"The iStock/Getty team has been working hard at the tedious Unification project and are near completion. As iStock Exclusive Contributors, we want to thank them with the gift of a celebration dinner/party. This is to thank them not just for their work on the ESP project but for all they do in our support and advocacy.

There are around 15-25 folks that have touched the project in some way. $750 should be enough for a nice dinner/party (or at least a good start!).

The funds will be disbursed to Brenda Bazylewski/Chris McBurney to arrange for a celebration.

Q: iStock has people working all over the world, not everyone is Calgary.
A: That's true. Not everyone can probably make such a celebration. But hopefully they still feel appreciated.
Help spread the word!"


What !!!

I don't know whether to laugh or cry!

It's disgusting considering Getty pay these people a salary then some clot comes up with the idea of getting contributors that Getty milk to stump cash for a nice dinner.

Get Jonathon Klein to dip in to his wallet chumps!!  Afterall he's a multimillionaire with a dairy cow

Hi,

I had a problem to login to ESP. After entering the good login and password, I couldn't access the main page but instead was brought back to the login page as if my login/password were wrong.

I deleted all cache data and cookies related with getty images, and now I can access the main page.

If someone else is in the same situation, I hope it can help.

However, ESP is still incredibly empty of any useful information for the moment...

Hello, I'm able to login using deepmeta3 since yesterday using the gettyimage credentials (that was the same of iStock) yesterday prepared 2 batchs of files but upload was always stop with different errors... Today i had try again and the first image was upload ok, the others files give me again sometimes "Error: A task was cancelled" or "Error: Cannot access a disposed object", tryed several times always the same, only the first file upload was OK.
Anyone with the same upload problem? I'm very sad.... and upset...

My balance is still showing in my DM2 account (NOT DM3). I'd expect the January portion to disappear around now for payment later in the month.
Note that an iS admin said that the DM balance didn't reflect accurate credit sales, but yesterday I got 2 credit sales (whoopee! Red Letter Day!) which I discovered via DM2 and the balance rose by a commensurate amount and the monthly balance rose this morning by the same amount, so if the DM balance isn't reflecting ongoing credit sales, I have no idea what's going on.

Well, I have always gotten paid 2 ways. One check from iStock/Getty and another from the RM Getty Portal. In Jan. I was owed over 1K from the Getty Portal which was always deposited in my account on the 25th, these were earnings from Nov. 2016. It never happened, I have sent in tickets to no avail. I have printed proof but nothing yet! It looks like Getty is going to steal over 1k from me! I hope this does not end up being the case but considering their track record who knows! Oh and yes no e-mail ever stated I would not receive those earnings

I've never received the e-mail and had the same problem.  I could not log in with my iStock username and password, but it worked when I used my e-mail as my username and my regular password.  No idea why.  Of course it wasn't useful as there was no actual sales data and the strange message others received about no information until a sale has occurred.  On one page it said I had 22 credit sales since the beginning of the year - which I don't believe - and on the others said nothing until some sales happen.  Using DM2 my account balance has now dropped to $2, even though it was a lot more before but not over payout threshold (is that still $100?).  I can't believe anyone is still trying to submit during this "transition".  Hopefully iStock will get their act together soon, but in the meantime I imagine they will be providing business schools tons of material for what not to do in the future.

Welcome to the world of GangstaStock. Perhaps Getty is simply collecting the dues you owe them for the privilege of hosting your images.>:(

got some useless newsletter (Survey on the Effectiveness of DMCA) from getty, but still no esp invitation. I wouldn't submit anything to them until they fix everything.

Still haven't received an e-mail.

On the forums they said no-one was going to be left behind, and Monday, all e-mails would be sent out. Nothing.

What a logistical mess, they're a bunch of amateurs.

Edit: apparently, video contributors were sent an invite e-mail with a unique link in 2014(!), which no longer works.

I never did receive an email. I tried the "Can't Remember Password" feature on the ESP login but got nothing. Then I tried the can't remember my user name, and it emailed me that my user name was my email. Using that user name, I was able to use the forgot password function again and I can now login. (but there's really no useful information available.)

I did download the new version of DeepMeta and uploaded successfully, but no DL history or $ viewable there either, so really, a whole lotta nothing.

Typical iStock. Roll out a half-baked version, fail to even do that properly, and once again somehow figure out how to make it even less useful. Sure, it may get better, but why not wait until a proper version can be release before proving once again that they are incompetent. Augh!

Got my email this morning, thank goodness.  Managed to login using the supplied link and username/number.

Not much information there at the moment, and in particular no sales or royalties information.

Also downloaded DeepMeta 3.

I got the e-mail today, and my new username was ... my e-mail, which I had figured out already.  Clicked on the invitation link to reset password and it took me to a nice-looking splash page - I like it.  Still no information beyond that though - no idea what I made last month or if there has been anything so far in February.  Not clear if they are still working on it or if we have to wait for a mythical sale to get updates.  Not worth spending any more energy on it - will just check SS and Canva and check back with ESP in another week or two.

We only get paid quarterly now?
Last Remittance Advice mail says "Payment Date: 23-Jan-2017" but no money.
