Seriously! People why do you continue to support this outfit?

Just delete your portfolios and stop the cycle of abuse!

Because the $600+ earnings are better off in my pocket.

If you would say $6000, then it wouldn't be so bad... but giving away all your hard worked images for $600? You really don't yet respect your work, do you?

For the 1500 images I have there, that isn't bad. I wouldn't expect t $6k from them. I place images to libraries that fit the types of sales I get. RM for higher value etc.

$600 per month, per year or over the lifetime you've been with iS/Gty?

No disrespect to you but I was referring to all the other above complaining about low returns.  Its not an issue with me if you or anyone else values their work so
poorly that they are willing to take a good shafting by these companies.

Its the attitude that no matter what they throw at a contributor its better than nothing.

Which is exactly why these agencies keep doing what they do.

$600 per month. They've been steadily increasing for me over the last 18 months.

To be honest, I don't submit any footage to them as they do under value footage significantly compared to what I get at AS & SS. I would also like to submit more to them but, their god awful keywording system limits my patience to 1-2 submissions a year... hence they only have 8% of what I've submitted elsewhere.

And as for the $6k acceptable limit quoted above... well, good luck with that one. That would mean 95-98% of all contributors would have to pack in and delete their portfolios.

That's $0.40 per image per month.

How much do you get for your 14,800+ video clips each month at Pond5?

From what I can see your ALL-TIME average is a little more than $2 per clip (maybe $2.50 or $3 if there were more than a few 4k sales). So he would reach that with images in 5-8 months...

Even with that amount of monthly income everyone should leave iStock... My video downloads are averaging little bellow 5$ at iStock. That is at least 1/5 of average HD sale elsewhere... They are stealling right in our face.

But in the eyes of a lot contributors, 6 grand is 6 grand. It is still hard to cut 72k per year from your sallary.


Everyone should says fuck it and pull the plug. And maybe in the future things would get better.

As I mentioned above, I don't submit footage to iStock at all as I don't want to devalue my work elsewhere. I have a collection of images there that are good stock images that do well and I add to them once/twice a year. Only represent 8-10% of my work but they do return good income per image. But footage, no .... I seriously wouldn't do it.

How do you go about deleting files from istock...footage in particular. I am just so over the low commissions and would rather my work not be on the site.
