You can view the current collection via this link : http://www.gettyimages.ca/Search/Search.aspx?p=images&family=creative&contractUrl=1&b=ISI&isource=can-en_iStockVectorFrontdoor_text

Seems like all vectors will be priced from $100 - $650. That's pretty hefty! Unless I'm mistaken, a vector sale would then net us $130 in royalties, since the rate is 20% for GI sales.

So far, I'm pretty excited about this... :) I'm glad they're bringing more perks for exclusive illustrators.

Three thoughts:
1. Maybe Google customers were demanding vectors.
2. Why can't they port over all the photos before starting on the vectors. I've still got >20% of my old E+, plus those I nominated last week, waiting to go over.
3. FI, there are plenty of unpublished Getty deals which mean your share can be much, much lower than you'd expect, and than what you could get as an exclusive on iS. I've had GI commissions of <$10, and some last month were reporting GI sales of <$1, and requests for information about these mini-micro prices have gone unanswered. I've had no GI sales for the past two months, but I'd rather that than being in the Google deal for $12 or selling for under $1.

Seems to be very expensive. A IS vector priced for U$ 27 costs U$ 432 via Getty.

Well, i hope to get some sales.  ;D

The same people who buy Vetta vectors mirrored from iStock, or any photo from iStock that is mirrored there. Sales happen so some people do.
