I just think its funny how a new site pops up selling images for $1 and we jump to "thats too low" and "micro stock needs to move higher".  5 years ago, weren't we hearing the same thing?

Thats it.  Just humoring how our tables have turned.

No, the table hasn't turned. We've just turned wiser. Most of us has discovered that it doesn't matter much for most customers if an image costs $1 or $10, since it's small change anyway. It does however matter if it costs $10 or $100, since $100 is not small change.

There's nothing wrong in wanting to make ten times as much on each download, as long as it doesn't influence the volume.

by the fact that the original poster has not returned to this thread, it appears that they are more interested in spamming all the forums (I saw this post on 3 other sites) than on creating a good image of their company.

Perhaps they will prove me wrong???

Spamming for what? Unless proven differently, I think it's a phishing site for passwords and identities. I'm worried that I subscribed with my real name and address. Can't even change that or I get error messages in Romanian. They also ask your paypal adrress and a photocopy of your passport (didn't give that). Phishers in the Eastern Europe eldorado must have noticed that there is a lot of money going around in the microstock.

Gotta love the Top 50.  Four photos with five sales. 

No thanks.

Wow, that just about sums it up for me.  Tell me when the top photos have at least over 1000 sales each, then I might check it out.

Doomed to failure, or doomed to attract only the stuff rejected elsewhere.  Sorry.

Very true. There is such a thing as "too cheap".

This is their address....1294 Cranbrook Dr. Schaumburg, IL 60193.  It's an apartment or townhouse community just west of Chicago.  I suspect the error messages in Romanian are the result of the original programmers.  They may have bought the site source code from anywhere in the world.  Many sites these days are OpenSource written all over the world offering many different out front languages.  Not that any of this really matters but I thought I throw my 2 cents in on the site.

P.S. I'm not uploading to them for now.

The Google Map Street View has come in pretty handy for seeing what type of office building, er uh apartment, some of these sites operate out of. I was pretty surprised to see the macrosite MyLoupe is a house in the Chicago area.

I just took a quick look out of curiosity. One photo I found that is obviously in need of a model release says Release information "n/a". The photo is not a news event, and is taken indoors on apparent private property.

Sorry, but from a buyer's viewpoint, I want to be sure that if such a photo is used, it is properly released. It is obvious that whoever is running this OPP game does not know the business.

Won't even link to the photo, because I don't even want to send a bit of traffic there.

My opinion: Stay far, far away from this one.

They did come back to look but haven't ventured back since March.

There's another question to ask.

Figure at .50 they keep per image, cost of operation, lines, servers, isp, bandwidth, and dare I say, someone might want to make a profit somewhere.

Will they survive with the overhead.

Too many microstock sites trying to start up and try to get a piece of the action. Personally, I think there should be less.

Be wary.

A.
