So the sales appear in the same place as before? Did we have to do anything for the old/new transition? Haven't been very active on 500 for a while.

yeah...the site is as straightforward as ever! Not!

Click on your face/port image. Then settings. Then licencing. Then sales history. Obviously, every button is in a different place on the screen!!!!!

A thought though: submitting to IS is a pain at best what with CV and all that. Why not just send everything via 500px? Or am I missing something.....

I guess 500px are more picky......but still......

So, sales came in before the announcement:

Congratulations! Your photos were selected by Getty Images and are now available for licensing on gettyimages.com.


See your photos on Getty Images

Why are my images being selected by Getty Images?
As of July 1, we have shut down the 500px Marketplace and will be working directly with two distribution partners - Getty Images and VCG - to license our contributors work globally. As a 500px member who has contributed to licensing, your images may be made available for licensing through our partners. Distribution partners resell 500px content on their own websites and then monthly or quarterly, report their sales to 500px.

How am I compensated if my image is sold through Getty Images?
Getty Images reports their sales to 500px on a monthly or quarterly basis. 500px then processes Distribution partner royalties through our payment system and the sales appear in the photographers Licensing Sales History.

Same message usually received from eyeem... Selected doesnt mean sold

See my earlier post: "sold" happened before this "selected" announcement.

In other words, it's the other way around:
"Sold" meant "selected".  :D

In order to be selected for Getty, is it worthy to upgrade to awesome/pro?
Thank you

Did others get the email as well? I didnt. Although 84 of my images are already online on Getty.

Hi, I didnt recieve the email either. How do you know that the photos are alredy online on Getty?
If I go to Manage Photos, under licensing I see some in prime collection, others in core collection and others declined, but I cant find any link to my images on Getty

Thanks!

Some images have a "buy a license" button (not visible under manage photos!). If you click on it you get redirected to Getty.

Where can I see this "buy a licence" button please? I have looked in all the obvious places, but this being 500px it just isn't obvious!

I know at least one image is on Getty as I have sales on it. Surely the (very small number) of ones they accept now will go automatically across - other wise what does 'accepted' mean?

On the right side of the image, below the number of likes.

Interresting that the same photos are available for peanuts on their regular subscriptions, but also for much more through their new 500px collection ($425-$499).

If Getty thinks it works for them, this should also tell many contributors that there is nothing special about restricting good photos to macro only.
Buyers are ready to pay a premium for browsing through a quality collection, instead of weeding through a huge pile of crappy similars on most micros.

I'm really just not seeing this!!! In Manage photos, Profile or somewhere else? Sorry if being dim.....
Maybe none have been accepted - but some sales were reported?
I imagine that if they are 'accepted' this must be into Getty as Marketplace is no more...
I'm being reminded why I abandoned 500px before.......   :(

See below. My most recent uploads have not been reviewed yet. It's not clear how the review process will happen, post transition.
There is still a large backlog, from what I can see. It is likely that delays were also caused by this transition.
Maybe yours were not selected or not reviewed yet.

Thanks for that but I don't see this on ANY of my images, accepted or not, sold or not.
I am soooooo confused!

What does Accepted mean if not And On Sale? Somewhere.......

You can also click on your icon, top right.
Then select manage photos.
Then select Licensing on the upper left.
You can also order them by collection to filter the ones selected for licensing (prime and core collections)
I have not checked them all, but those visible on this list seem also to have that specific licensing button shown above.

Thanks. Yes, I can see some accepted and , it seems, available for licence. But nowhere do I see a button should anybody wish to purchase. I'll go and annoy 500px. Thanks for your help! :)
PS The ones which are (maybe) available are only core collection so unlikely to make me rich in any case.......!

I expect many more sales to come through Getty, than through 500px.
The email some of us received contains a link to our photos on Getty.

Try this: https://www.gettyimages.ca/search/photographer?autocorrect=none&collections=fpx,fpl,pxp,pxu,fup&family=creative&photographer=xxxxxxx.

Where xxxxxxx is your 500px user name (replace any space with%20)

No match.
All very odd.
Beyond my understanding.
Will annoy 500px.
But thanks! :)
