Does anybody know about this site? They have a bunch of my photos and a lot from others here. I don't know if it is related to any of the major sites.
I also know that I never have submitted to it. Take a look to see if you find any of yours][/ftp]

Yeah, found one of mine without looking hard. You can't get to a contact or any other page without a login.

Found this link on another page [email protected].  I have started an enquiry.

The image has my name on the page and the properties of the thumb has my standard username embedded in it 3 times. Wondering if it is an affiliate of someone.

I did search for "Fort Collins". It brought 13 of my images. The search is identical (including picture order) as one performed at 123RF ...

It could be a 123rf related or partner site, I don't know. The weird thing is what dbvirago said, can't get to any home or other page without login in.

I'm still very smalltime so I have a limited portfolio and I checked all my images, nothing. So I'm assuming by my checks they aren't getting the images from FT, DT, BigStock and judging the quality of the images they are getting them from one of the top sites. I've checked a friend on 123 also and they do appear there so possibly the source.

Well, they respond fast. This just came

These photos are part of our relationship with 123RF.  We have a licensing agreement
with them and are part of their image gallery.
To date no photo of yours has been used.

One thing that I have noticed is that they don't use the username associated with 123RF, but rather the full name.  This is different from the way 123RF does things.

This causes a problem for those people that have their full name private (which can be changed at because their images will be displayed on MagnetQueen without any associated username or name whatsoever.

For example, if you go into your privacy settings (@ and set your "Real Name" to private, and then go back to MagnetQueen and find one of your images, you will notice that your name is no longer associated with the image.

If you right click on the thumbnail and bring up properties, your username is embedded in there. I also sent a note to 123 re this. Not sure this is in line with the license agreement. MQ says they haven't sold any of mine, but I'd like to know what I get if they do. On the one hand they are selling magnets, but the image page we are looking at has sizes up to large tifs. This is  a similar operation to print business cards, but there if they use my image on a card I get $5 and if they want the image, I get $20. If this is similar at 123, fine, but I don't want them reselling my images at a profit and I get .36

Cool, a photo I only had accepted at 123 this week, and only on 123 is already showing at Magnet Queen. At least we know they are indexing or tied in well.

I hope we are getting paid if images get sold there, they have quite a few of mine.

If I were a potential customer of Magnetqueen, I would like to know the prices before registering.

If the price of the smallest size is not too high, I would be willing to buy one of the photos by one of our community, and tell him/her to report if he/she gets paid for it.  Of course this should be a photo that has had little or no sales, because the photographer might not be able to see the difference between a regular 123rf sale and a Magnetqueen sale?
Neither 123rf not Magnetqueen can be against "testing", as it would be a regular sale.

My Photos is there too but without my Name!!!!!!

Hi Everyone,

MagnetQueen is one of our API Partners. All sales will be reported accordingly. You will never get a 0.36c sale off the site simply because they do not do subscription downloads. Only credits!

Hope that clarifies our position on this!

Thank you!


I've had a few 0.20 $ sales past week, are these from them.?..
