Funny that iStock allows Yuri post the Windows keyboard logo on a file sold more than 11000 times

If it isn't editorial, I guess it is just one that slipped through.  For the most part, though, the inspectors do a good job with that stuff.  Inspectors at Istock have found logo issues that I missed a bunch of times.

I agree, once a picture got rejected because of Logo on a button. It took me quite a while to find it, cause it was really tiny :)

Be sure to let us know what he has for breakfast tomorrow.

I agree. He has set it up perfectly.

if he completely stopped uploading it sounds like a clear marketing u-turn to me and i'm sure he did the math on this.
Nope, not at all. Yuri has mentioned several times in 2011 that his sales isn't growing anymore. If sales doesn't grow despite active upload it's certainly worth to explore something different - and keep only uploading a minimum sufficient to keep the sales from declining.

If anyone cares (and I would actually be suprised if they did), I can inform you that Yuri lives off protein bars, amino acids, coffee and healthy snacks like dried fruit and nuts. :) Tabitha and I make sure that he always has a supply of these kinds of foods.
I've never seen him eat cake or candy. Ever. So the "English muffin" and the other unhealthy stuff mentioned in this thread... Highly unlikely. :)

On a more serious note, Yuri hasn't stopped uploading files. We're just reorganizing. :)

We can't wait.

Btw, since rates at all other sites are so abysmally low and insulting that it demanded creation of a new site, why would you continue to upload, and in fact not remove all images from all sites.

Your are right. Yuri hasn't really stopped uploading files.  It's a fact that Yuri's collection hasn't been growing in iStock for a while.  But, doesn't Yuri's factory produces more than only Yuri's collection? 

There's a little army of Yuri's clones uploading  restlessly to iStock.   Aren't those huge clones' collections coming from Yuri's factory?  Aren't those clones his workforce of iStock exclusives who make him earn huge amounts of money?   ::)

I don't think so. Yuri has a very distinctive style coupled with market research and mass production advantages and restrictions. He does a very good job but I know from a client's perspective that what he does is not always the perfect match for everyone. There are many styles, markets, requirements... He know his market and serves it well, but the market is vast and diversified.

Also, I don't know his plans of course, but I'm sure his site will end up competing face to face against some established sites, including SS, IS, and even Getty.

That's where stock agencies have a problem. As a top selling contributor you would be very generous with him, giving him anything he demands. On the other side, s a top selling contributor he can do without you. This reminds me of IBM , Microsoft and Steve Jobs. :)

Apparently not, or he wouldn't have felt the need to set up on his own.

Yes, Yuri has his very distinctive style.  Yet, when looking at the portfolios of some iStock exclusives, you would think you are looking at Yuri's portfolio.  Every single detail is just the same. That's why I can't help thinking that such collections actually come from Yuri's factory.

princigalli reply had nothing to do with your comment right, regarding what you are talking about it was discussed here a while ago but it looks like Yuri had his town buddy working for him but after he decided to go alone ;D

Just say a couple new Images from Yuri in the recent uploads. Wonder if they did not meet his high standards on his own site.  ;)
