They have been working on optomising their website for a good while now, perhaps they are preparing to get ready for the new beginning, or it maybe it's the logical optimisation of a site that cannot sell.

An Update -  Just received advice from GL Stock that they would be back up and running with their new site shortly.

Hey Guys & Gals,

Sorry for the downtime today, we sent out an announcement via our messaging system regarding it.

Our new site should be live within 1-2 hours, an announcement will be made here when it's up and running :).

Thanks for your patience with our process!

Phil

This commission change happened 1 year ago.  We grandfathered all users who were at 52%, and their commission remains at 52%.  All new accounts after we made the change last year were at 40%.

The site is up and running, but there are still a few things we need to fix.  We will make an announcement later today.  Thanks for your patience.

Ok, thanks for clarifying. I didn't remember that change. Apologies for that.

It's pretty.  Looks basically the same.  Are there any functional differences that will increase sales?

I'm happy to see the site back up.

In line with a recent discussion thread here, I have a question.   Would GL's 'extended' license allow reselling as wall art on Etsy?

Perhaps to clarify the question - does it allow reselling of digital files, possibly slightly modified (like flipped, cropped, or background color changed.

Thanks Sean, certain areas will look pretty similar, for sure.  There are new functionalities, I will be making an announcement later today most likely, both here and via email to our members.  We are just putting some finishing touches and fixing some bugs.

Regarding our extended licenses, you can use images for resale.  Images can be sold as wall/canvas art, within the terms/restrictions of the license.  I can't speak specifically towards any particular market place, but as long as our terms and other third party market place terms are being adhered to, I wouldn't see any issue with it.

No, a buyer of the license cannot "redistribute, resell, lease, license or sub-license" an image in any form.  The extended license allows the user to sell merchandise using the image, but does not authorize the user to "license" the image out, or resell the image itself.

Thanks for the reply.   Some of us who also sell photos as wall art via POD have only recently realized that people are simply getting full-res files with extended licenses and selling prints of them on Etsy and elsewhere.  And obviously their prices can be low.

I'm not going to let this happen, so ll I can do is opt out of 'extended' licenses. Which is unfortunate.   

I just tried to do that on GL, but any attempt to edit my 'profile' gave me a bunch of error messages which I couldn't resolve; for example I get 'City can't be blank', but there's no 'City' field in the form.

City can't be blank
State can't be blank
Zip can't be blank
Country can't be blank
Phone can't be blank
Username should only contain letters, numbers, or -_

Will message you privately to get that squared away.  Keep in mind, there are still some bugs/kinks we're working out.

Your posts are always brief and to the point....sometimes Ironic- I'm not sure this one is or not :o

Still can't log in, it's not showing the captcha but instead following error message:

"Fehlerhinweis fr Inhaber der Website:

Somethings not quite working here...

Ok, sounds good.  Hope it helps.  When I need to buy images, I buy at GL, because it's so easy.

Having Problems uploading 6mp images that have one side under 2000px. The uploader is saying the image needs to have at least one side OVER 2000px - Perhaps another sneaky bug?
Cheers and good luck Geoff

Have to say the previous layout was much better, more informative and easier to use. Under 'My Account' why is 'latest downloads' at the top? The most important info should be there - pending/accepted etc. It's now 4 clicks to see portfolio size! Not a fan of the huge boxes and space either but GL are not alone in that (SS mess). Serif typeface looks odd too.

Today the vapid and unreadable "flat design" is very fashion we can do nothing about that

The mix of sans and serif I didn't think was working too well.

Also, the favicon for me is still the old flame.  Maybe it's in my cache or something.

I agree.
And wanting to use both together the inverse use should be better (sans <> serif)
