PhotoDune / Re: PD - Most absurd rejects ever
« on: February 22, 2013, 07:58 »
If you stick at this and continue to upload you will get far more ridiculous rejections than that, I particularly like "The focus isn't where we think it should be". Well you didn't take the shot and its where I wanted it to be..........but as has been said all you do is waste time complaining about it. Just forget about it and move on.

PD are one of the better reviewers, I rarely get a rejection there and when I do I can usually see where the reviewer is coming from. I would read their comments and take them on board for future reference.

123RF / Re: 123RF Royalty Cuts - What Will You Do?
« on: December 19, 2012, 14:30 »
A difficult decision for me as 123 are one of my better performing agencies, however even now I am starting to wonder if their poor rates are worth the trouble. I will have to think hard on my decision but if I decide to stop uploading I will also pull my port as don't see why they should benefit from my work whilst I don't.  :-\

123RF / Re: Accepted files not online
« on: October 27, 2012, 13:30 »
This is a regular occurance at 123, I usually end up emailing support and then a day or so later they appear. It seems that everytime I upload there is a glitch in the system. So its probably all my fault :(

6 / Re: Shutterstock Love/ Hate
« on: October 09, 2012, 02:13 »

I've yet to be accepted at SS, A few months back I submitted my 10 images for half of them to be rejected, last week I took out the ones that were rejected and kept the ones they said were acceptable added another 5 and resubmitted. Yesterday rejection but not the new files 2 of the original already accepted images and 2 of the new ones.
Surely if they have a standard and an image meets that standard it then a couple of weeks later not meet it???????

Rub head and think again..............


123RF / Re: Accepted images not in Portfolio
« on: October 03, 2012, 12:43 »
Support told me there had been a "computer glitch" at about the time I uploaded. They say they will sort it but so far nothing.....

Have just checked and a number of my images uploaded on two seperate occassions in september have failed to make it into my port again. Keyword searches have not turned them up either. They show in my history as having been accepted but not showing.

I hope this isn't going to be something I am going to have to keep checking up on everytime I upload.

Anyone else notice this problem or are they picking on me??????

9 / Re: Is your September down?
« on: September 19, 2012, 02:21 »
So far its been a dead loss, IS and 123rf most disappointing. Not even getting any views on IS (what are they up to?).

Started to pick up a bit yesterday with quite a few sales so lets hope it continues.

The post count I don't care about (with all the rubbish posted here) but the date might be useful to see if you're dealing with an experienced contributor/member, a newcomer or a troll ;)

The date someone joined this group has no bearing on whether they are an experienced contributor or not, it just tells you when they joined nothing else.

I recently decided to stop uploading to Crestock, a shambles of a company. In last 6 months I have had only 15 images out of 250 accepted whereas they sell well elsewhere, no sensible reason is given for the rejection. Also I still have a few files waiting to be reviewed that I uploaded over 2 months ago. But they would probably get rejected when they finally get around to reviewing them.

Company is a complete waste of space.

12 / Re: PantherMedia launches new pricing scheme
« on: August 21, 2012, 11:29 »
I haven't looked too much at panther before.
I like there is greater increase for larger sizes than at some other agencies.

Thanks for posting here. Good to see some contribution from agencies here.

Yes, well do take a look at them!  run very good indeed, love their upload system and above all, I recon, because of their pricing system the are an agency for the future.

Have to agree their upload system is very good, and this pricing systems seems to be a step in the right direction. It certainly looks like it has been thought through before launch.

Cutcaster / Re: Review times
« on: August 21, 2012, 04:21 »
Sorry all.  I went on an actual vacation.  Keeping staffing low is part of our over all plan.  I am catching up as fast as I can.

Thanks for your understanding.

Thanks for the reply, I was querying as the delay in reviews is unusual for you.


They never ignored my support tickets, they told me the EL price was a bug and was fixed but it's still set to 10cr when uploading. Will be only a matter of time till they fix it I guess.
I've got to be honest, unlike others here I have never had issues with support or reviews on FT.
Also, I don't know what they did to the search engine but it's good to promote/sell new work (finally)

For now just take notice of those checkmarks (which is already fixed for me) and EL price when uploading.

Pardon my ignorance I'm pretty new to FT but what should the EL price be??

Cutcaster / Review times
« on: August 17, 2012, 12:44 »
Whats going on at Cutcaster? I have had images waiting to be reviewed since 1st August, don't remember having to wait that long before, is Cutcaster the new Crestock.

Anyone else noticing a slow down in review times?

Veer / Re: review time
« on: August 16, 2012, 14:06 »
     I  have  waited  10  days  so  far.  Begining  to  rethink  submitting  to  them.

You have a long wait yet before they are reviewed 4 to 6 weeks is about normal. I just upload and forget as has been suggested no point in keeping checking on them I have enough to do as it is.
To be truthful if I didn't upload to all sites at once would probably forget about them completely.

Adobe Stock / Re: Does Fotolia have the Crestock syndrome?
« on: August 16, 2012, 13:59 »
I have noticed that very thing today, never had a problem with Fotolia before always had a high acceptance rate. Today batch of 12 had 8 rejected and the ones that were accepted were no better technically than the ones rejected.

Back to the original subject.

The stock market like any business will evolve and as long as there is a demand then It will grow.


Well reef, I am sorry mate but this thread is for ppl, whos been a long time in the stock business, far longer then before micro,  consequently, your post is rather irrelevant. :)
Who made you God?

How do you know how long he has been in the "Stock business". You probably have no idea who he/she is. And as this is an open forum............

20 / Re: FTP Broken at Bigstock
« on: August 13, 2012, 14:32 »
For the information of anyone who is still having issues my images have now appeared 3 days after uploading them.???

21 / Re: FTP Broken at Bigstock
« on: August 13, 2012, 10:35 »
I usually upload via picworkflow, last weeks upload showed they went to BS no problem but when I checked nothing there, they showed up in my new uploads queue 5 days later by which time I had uploaded them via the browser. Uploaded another lot this weekend and no show yet I'm hoping they turn up sometime soon as I can't waste time with the browser everyweek.

Is anyone else having problems uploading to Alamy today? I've been trying all afternoon but no joy????

Not had this problem with them before hopefully it won't last.

It happens; when I started it was much more common than it is now. Thank goodness.

Many thanks after a few more attempts finally got my images uploaded.

You've asked for us to give you our secrets but you haven't told us what yours are just that you have some? Tell us one of yours and I might consider giving you one of mine  ;D
