Hi there. Let me start by saying this is an wonderful site, I just came across and registered right on the spot. After considering if appropriate or not I finally decided to give it a shot, so here it goes...

I work with a stock footage site (videos) (well in the category of microstock) and we are considering selling stock images, but as many have posted here, the market is so saturated with such sites that it loses the appeal specially for contributors with tons of images.

I was wondering, what do you, as photographer, look for in a stock image site specially that something that will help you decide to join?

One thing we've been trying to do is to come up with a way to somehow make our videographers (or future photographers) part of the company in a way that, if the company ever gets sold or if we reach a level of high income, you get a piece of the pie at the level of your contribution... This has been quite difficult because there are many variables some yet unknown.

So, beside this idea, is there something you as photographer is looking forward to see in a microstock site?

Hi: Thanks for the link, I read the thread and there are many good ideas. I think with that foundation we can start to draw a final draft. I guess we will be announcing the addition of stock images to our site. I was curious to hear about the idea of the photographers being part of the company, but it seems (from our info gathering) that there is no much interest.

Anyway, thanks again for the link, very much appreciated.
