A bit of crystal ball gazing here - I wonder if the istock premium collection is about to become Gettys new dollar bin.

I wondered the same thing on another board and got some very offended responses ;)

Remains to be seen, but it happened on Fotolia, so it is certainly possible.

Nope, it's leaf's site - he's currently away on a travel adventure.

Easy mistake to make Jonathan - Zeus may not run this site, but he has been running the world from Mt. Olympus for thousands of years so you have to give him respect! ;)

Nope!  Getty used to have quite a few name photographers but they mainly came from the old Image-Bank.
Theyre long gone.
Todays Getty photographer is all into lifestyles etc, setting up shoots, using expensive models. Many work on "commissions" via Getty. In short it can "cost" a lot to generate a lot. A pal of mine will spend 10K in order to earn 20K etc.
This is NOT anything for your average micro photographer.
I cant help feeling a bit sorry for a few IS photographers that kind of been lured into this pretentious sweet talk, but, but, there you go.

merry X-mas to all.

my approval rate has gone up a bit a IS the last month, but then I done a lot for my own interests and it is stuff that wont sell real well :(
(so of course the other sites rejection rate has gone up)

I can share something that was told to us Macro producers at a big Getty meeting this last fall at photo Expo that explains it all but I would rather do it through a PM as I don't want to upset the king or Queen for that Matter.

Please share Jonathan ... you have my curiosity totally spiked ... regarding rejections of your work by IS - it's only their loss and the other sites' gain ... kind of idiotic on Istocks's part though IMHO ...
Could you please share with me too?

I'd also be very interested to know - and I'm happy to receive the information privately if that's what you'd prefer.

Thanks Sean,

 You have a good holiday as well. I was thinking of maybe a Dictionary or a Thesaurus for you. What sounds best? I would love a new joke book myself. ;D

Peace and Happy Holidays,

IMO.The best way to deal with any rejection on istock is to read the rejection notice carefully and check your email notification as well as your site profile page as it's only your email addy for your istock account which will have any thumbnail image the inspector has sent highlighling any problems in your file.
If that fails do what i do after a few rejections..visit a local farm and enjoy the animals  ;)

Just send me a PM if you would like to hear what was said in the meeting. But just to put you at ease it was not directed at Micro shooters it was directed at Macro shooters involved in Micro. So don't worry and run to Wall Mart to buy the extra big Tank with the realistic battle sounds for your kid :D. Or you can PM me if you can't bare it.
