Hello,

In the istock partner program it says, "The iStockphoto Partner Program makes your files available to Getty Images partner sites, such as Thinkstock and Photos.com."

Couple of images got selected on my friend's istock account last week but we're not able to search/locate them on photos.com and thinkstock yet.

Image approval date was 11/04/2012 - does it take time to show up on photos.com and thinkstock?



Thanks.

This year, next year, some time, never.
If it's not showing in the PP, Rejoice!  :D

Same as Thinkstock:  "your name" or "yourname" (depending on when they were transferred) and now "business name" on IS.

In my case I have some for each but the newest are with the current Business name or Company Name or whatever they call it on IS. They made the mistake of using real name first when ThinkStock was opened, people didn't like that, so they changed to the profile name that each of us has entered. I suspect that if I change my name, they will start showing up for that new name. But I won't be doing that.

Put that ID in quotes, and you should see what's up there for sale.

This year, next year, some time, never.

That's what I've been saying, people should be happy their photos aren't being moved to Thinkstock and Photos.com!  :)  Not complaining.

The "connector" between iStock and the partner program sites has been in various types and stages of disrepair from the beginning. Sometimes files move quickly but more often things go in fits and starts, files go missing, etc.

If your friend is exclusive, new files won't show up because only those older than 18 months can be both on iStock and the partner sites (they can be only on the partner sites, but that would seem to be a very strange choice for an exclusive to make)

At the beginning, when I was blinded by their lies ("it's a different market"), and didn't realise they'd be actively trying to get their biggest buyers to swap over to the PP, I thought it would be a good idea to put the 'sub-best' pics from a shoot into the PP, i.e. the best on iStock, the next 'good enough' on the PP, so there could be a little logic in such a move.
But then I saw the bigger picture, and saw sense.
