Most photos is absolutely my favorite site these days. I sent them almost 2000 images. I hope they take off and control the market. I like the look and feel and after talking to the owner Im convinced there are here. Highly recommend.

Well said rinderart, nice to hear such a positive remark.

Reason no. 20: The owner and admin are helpful and really trying to make an impact.

Reason no 21: rinderart; his pictures are superb!

I haven't any experience with them yet  but having visited the site my first impression is that it is being overrated here. I regret to say the UI doesn't look very professional ,returning images after a quick search gave me the idea that  they need time to build their library. so, for the time being I will pass that option but if things got better I might consider joining

good luck to every one who  is on there.please keep us updated.

thanks

I have had a couple of email conversations with members of the MostPhotos staff that generated some interesting responses regarding buyers and cash deposits that they've secured. Below is the link to that discussion:

Reason #16 - You can submit whatever crap there. mwp1969 , right? Then, when somebody gives low votes to your crap, you can block him/her. Even better, you can give low votes to all his/her images and then block him/her.

These hot nordic people are very vendicative, you know :)

Unfortunately, people, giving votes there, haven't sold any picture in their life. Portfolios of many of them are full of low-quality images of non-stock content.

Exceptionally well said! If you dare so much as to criticize some Swedish idiot, you are given a lot of 1 s and then are blocked. Nothing sells there anyway. I gave them up long time ago.

Take for example http://www.mostphotos.com/160282
its a nightime shot of the Eiffel tower with lights that are clearly visible, which if I understand correctly is copyrighted....

That's during dusk, so it's a borderline.
This one is blatant infringement and it's Royalty Free, not Editorial.

It's a stern Swede that made it, and he brags on his profile that his photos are all natural and no Photoshop. Had an 100% view at his Grand Canyon shots, and yeah right, all natural noise in the shadows. I also love this one, especially the light and the composition  ;D

I didn't dare to make a comment about the infringement. Looks like the type that will flood you with ones  ;D

I have been with them a few months and I have had two sales but they have paid me $18 each.  That is like having an EL on some sites.  They also let me withdraw that money straight away.  No waiting for $50 or $100 like I have to with most of the other sites.

This is one of the sites I am uploading to in the hope that the earnings will one day be good.  They might make it or they might not but the worst case scenario should be that I will make a few $18 sales.  I can live with that.

i think that's the right way to a good company.
if they have no waiting for a certain amount to pay you. it's obvious they want to do business with good photographers, and hopefully they maintain that trust.
i used to deal in another artform where they paid me like that, it worked really well until they took off and became big time.
they sold the company and the new owner came to tell us we now need to pay to stay.
so i wish you the best and this particular company just the same.
it sounds like a company i will look into joining .
for now, as before, i thank all of your inputs because i am truly just looking for your experiences before choosing the companies i want to work with.
please continue to write i appreciate all your input on this site's forum
 :)

I like photography, and I do not like uploading if it does not pay.

what's the point of stock site without sales?

#14 There is a "Hall of Fame" page which appears to be those with the highest Point Totals from all of the rating, and feedback that I spoke of earlier which generates points.

This seems to be based on comments made and votes cast rather than the quality of a persons portfolio.

This is just like on eBay, consequently the feedback system doesn't work.

It's probably to late now but if they are not going to employ reviewers to vet the images perhaps it would be better to only allow the buyers to vote or just base it on sales.

they must make up their minds if the like to be an agency or a community.
Hopping to select the second option as an agency without sales has no future at all.

What an incredible concept!  Perhaps they will give this idea serious consideration.

best of all systems is when buyers vote with euros.

I would very much agree with you vphoto :) The community is great, but ultimately it will be the cash that counts. Having made my first sale there for 12.5 Euros in commissions was truly a wonderful thing and I hope that many more follow this year :)

wonderful concept but unlikely to happen as they defend their "voting system" ad-nauseum. I DO like the site but the annoyances with the pep-rally popularity is really wearing on my nerves.

FYI to all that are interested:

I have seen and heard of more individuals achieving their 1st or 2nd sale from both side coversations and their chat room. I am still currently awaiting anxiously awaiting my 2nd sale at a rate or over $17.50 Commission after converted from Euros ...

Payouts there are immediate as any one sale meets their payout threshold minimum requirement.
