Hello everyone,
I am an illustrator and normally don't want to sell my pictures at microstock, but only midstock and macrostock.
But as I also see that microstock has the most customers, I wonder: are there still any microstock sites that allow in the user settings to opt out the subscription / abonnement mode? with credits I could live, but with subscriptions it's difficult to me.
So are there any opt out options out there? I don't want to register to all of them to check it out :).
Kind regards

In Fotolia is possible to opt out from subspcriptions, the other i don't think so...

I thought that Fotolia only offered that option for exclusive images, but I'm not aware of anyone else who offers an opt out. Even at Getty, they modified their contract several years ago to give them the option of moving RM images to RF and even to subscription if they wanted to. No opt out from that.

You can license direct (lots of control, no built in buyer audience); you can sell only JPEGs of your illustrations via microstock, or select only some of your illustrations that you're OK with selling in higher volume at lower prices.

Once upon a time, iStock was a great sales outlet for very complex illustrations - because they had a pricing scheme that based things on the complexity of the work. Simple things were cheap, but the really elaborate works (which would sell well) commanded much higher prices. Those days are done though, plus they have subscriptions with no opt out.
