Xposurepro, let's see if people will get angry at you now. :)

It doesn't look so attractive for those in FT already.

Regards,
Adelaide

PS: it seems some reaction already started.

I wouldn't do anything on purpose to provoke it though ... or would I? .. you never know. I'll do my best to keep everyone on their toes ;D

Here's the caveat : Their contract states you have to keep your files online there for two years. You might consider revising your blog to reflect this, xposurepro.

Albumo has already done something similar to this, but with a 400 day 'stay of execution'. From what I know of things, it left a sour taste in the mouths of most people who chose to participate.

Here's the pixmac blog that describes the offer. You might want to change your blog to link to this page instead of the pixmac home page, xposurepro.

That's a big promise to make, but then again it means nothing if they're not around in two years, which if you consider that two of the worlds biggest selling microstock contributors have sold a total of 4 photos between them in over six months it is a very strong possibility I think.

Sorry but I think Pixmac.com is just another wannabe waiting to fail, add it to the list with Yaymicro.

Hmm, maybe I should sent them on DVD everything that has been rejected everywhere and ask for second option. I can have 10x$100 :-)

yeah I'm thinking option 2 sounds better .. grab your money up front and if they fail oh well you still got your money ... that's what I'm going to do even though the payoff is less. I figure I can grab an easy 5-6 hundred just in case they turn into another luckyoliver down the road and then if they last beyond that cool.

Unfortunately they may approve only 499 pictures from everybody and then my plan will fail :-)

Sounds tempting (the $100 up front, not the $500 on the back end), but the $100/500 images is likely the only money most of us would ever see from them. 

Not sure if $100 without the likelihood of future sales is worth the effort of uploading 500 pics.

It seems that if your images are available on fotolia then they are on pixmac also. 

Looked through a few images and didn't notice any sales. Doesn't look to promising. No pie there  :)

I knew I'd heard of them somewhere  ;D and you're right they're all from Fotolia, I've even got images there and have had one sale.

I'd have thought that would disqualify you from any 'cash for uploading' even if you were desperate enough to upload there.

Ahh.  Didn't get the Fotolia reference the first time around.  I am not aware of having had any sales there.

so, if the images are on FT, I cant upload them on pixmac? *...

100$ per 500 aprovals sounds nice. for 3000 files, i would get 600$, which is not bad at all.... but I have those on FT, so nothing usefull there.... pitty.

There is no such thing as easy money. hhhhh  ;D

They don't actually say that do they? I cannot find where they say that. I signed up and had a good look round, they have FTP and pay 50% for non exlusive rights.

I've sold about 10,000 images on FT and only 2 of them have come from Pixmac.

I have a feeling that they would only approve 499 of my images...

Me thinks too. The problem then is that you have blocked 499 images for 2 years with no sales, preventing you to go xclusive anywhere else.

... 100$ per 500 approvals sounds nice...

That would be $0.20 per image. This is less tan $0.25 subscription.
I am not sure the one time $0.20 would even cover upload and keywording hassle.

"All pictures sent for approval must be keyworded by the contributor. Pictures uploaded as part of this promotion are not eligible for free keywording.""
