Any one know much about this?

In the meantime, please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like to discuss any image requirements. I can be reached by e-mail gavin@ingrampublishing.com

They are a partner of Panthermedia.

Never heard of Reflex Stock but found my images there.

Is it only a partner of Panthermedia or any other microstock agency as well?

No copyright credit there either - I'm not happy about that.

Reflexstock is not listed in here:
http://www.microstockgroup.com/general-stock-discussion/a-list-of-partner-programs/

My images on Reflexstock are not from Panthermedia (not approved yet at PM).

Now it's getting interesting...

This is exactly why all agencies need to be upfront about their partners. If they were, it would save a lot of wasted time and headache for contributors hunting this stuff up.

My sentiments exactly...
...and the hunt begins. I've emailed this guy Gavin Vadivalloo to find out just how my photos got there and what partner agency transfer them..."inquiring minds want to know"... ;)

Ingrampublishing seems to be really hardworking artist. Even harder than legendary Colossus:

Ingram Publishing is a real agency with a real address in London, so I am confident that there's nothing bad going on this time.

Anyway, it's a case of bad communication (not telling where pictures are coming from), and unacceptable carelessness (not showing the real author). They should be more careful to these "details" if they want us to trust them.

They don't even have a detailed report of their own sales on iSignStock, as asked - still unanswered - in another thread:

If you click on one of your images it will indicate the info below:

   Image number   02981213_detail RF Stock Photo
    Image Caption    Cheap Photos of: White House
    License type       Royalty free Stock Photo
    Photo credit      Reflexstock/Panthermedia/Steven Jones


So, I guess they (mine) came from Panthermedia.  Why in hell under "Image Caption" they all have CHEAP PHOTOS OF is way beyond me, you would think they would have worded that differently . . . . . .


I mean, CHEAP is such a cheap word. ;D

My photos don't show any credit what so ever, and instead of "Cheap photo" it reads "Budget photo", there are also some with "microprice photo" ???
Very strange...still waiting for an answer from them.

mine show inconsistent data, varying from picture to picture, such as:


1)
Image number: 4687964 RF Stock Photo
Image Caption: Budget Stock photo of: Cardross parish church
License type: Royalty free Stock Photo

2)
Image number: claudiodivizia101100171 RF Stock Photo
Image Caption: Free Stock photos: Ruins of Cardross old parish church
License type: Royalty free Stock Photo
Photo credit: Reflexstock/Reflex Microprice/Claudio Divizia


"budget" is better than cheap indeed. But "free" is misleading.
And my name is only shown on some pictures.

That's it - 1) from Canstock 2) from 123rf

Hello,

My colleague has just made me aware of this post. Indeed Reflex Stock was taken over by Ingram Publishing a few months ago. As some of you have already mentioned we have a number of partners including 123RF, Panther Media and Canstock.

We are currently working on a number of site improvements including the way we display our partners images. We are very excited about the future of Reflex Stock and hope many of you will benefit from existing and futures partnerships.

Best regards,

Johnnie

Dreamstime is one of them too I think.

I think most would agree with me that you NEED to have the copyright information show on our images. Then we might get as excited as you are :)
