We also have unlimited funds to continue for at least the next 10 years even if we never sell a single photo, which we will.

I am wondering why someone with unlimited funds would even bother with this headache. Huge competition, contributors that complain all the time, etc. I AM very jealous though. Wish I had unlimited funds.  :)

...Yes we are small at the moment but at least we are bigger than you Jo Ann Snover...


That's true, but it's not any way to measure the success of a stock agency. If you're inviting photographers to contribute (how this thread started), you're going to need to give them a reason to hand over their valuable intellectual property to you to license. Other than you being rather defensive when questions are asked, what have any of us learned about your site?

I took another look just now to see if anything had changed and it appears not. The recent uploads are more LCV shots that have awful keywording (not spam, just insufficient), for example:

http://www.i2istockphotos.com/store/stock-photo/pomegranates-12858.html

I can't see how a site like this will appeal to buyers or potential contributors. But that's just one person's opinion, and I'm am smaller than most :)

Seems to be an install of http://cmsaccount.com/

I'm totally shocked by the attitude. Literally could not be a worse sign. Ugh. All the funding in world can't teach PR skills or business sense. (Maybe the opposite, even...)

Neat-O maybe I could open a stock photo site too. If I owned SUPREMESERVERS (as i2i says they own their own?) that would be nice for savings.

Photo Video Store script. FULL VERSION
Lite version + Photographers add-on + Affiliates add-on    $119.20

Amazing how similar it looks...  ::) Simply AMAZING

On the other hand, wow, for $119.20 I could have a fully functional stock photo site and invite friends to upload too? This could be interesting! Maybe http://www.CrapStock.com isn't dead after all? (for those too easily offended, since I've been through the insults and personal attacks before... that's a test platform site - not my real site!)

Thanks i2i for bringing up this site, now that ppdd has informed me, I see the software I should be using for my site.

Hi Jo

I own i2istockphotos.com and how misinformed you are.

Its a perfectly legit site.  We have our own photos that no one else has ( over 100, 000 ) which we are currently catagorising and will be uploading shortly.  If other photographers want to upload their photos we pay 50% to the photographer.

We have spent considerable amount on developing our own software and we own our own server which is superfast.  We also have unlimited funds to continue for at least the next 10 years even if we never sell a single photo, which we will.

Yes we are small at the moment but at least we are bigger than you Jo Ann Snover.

Thanks.

Looking at the small amount of work already there, I can't see any reason to be optimistic about the site's prospects, whatever its name is.

The whole thing looks very familiar - I tried to find an old thread where someone came here saying lots of photographers were signing up and we should all join. It used the same software as this site (different name) and there were just two contributors (one of whom had all but a handful of the images).

Here's the photographer list from the current site

http://www.i2istockphotos.com/store/members/users_list.php

All the general questions apply - why would anyone buy from this site versus all the established ones? They are offering 40% royalty and images sell for 1 to 4 credits (but I can't find the prices for a credit). They are also offering advertising on the site, which I take as a very negative sign.

If you sort by most downloaded, apparently 3 images have had one download each.

I wish I could find the earlier thread as I think this is just a retread of an earlier time-wasting site.




Now that's a proper introduction of a new site  ;D

We also have unlimited funds
Really?
Here the only unlimited thing that I see is your arrogance
