Warning: Only for nerds -
As a traditional IT professional and amateur stock photographer I came along this 'https://www.birdlance.com/' project.
Having no knowledge about cryptocurrencies but being curious about it I opened an account last week. It was fun to dive into the world of blockchain however the project is still in a embryonic stage and I'm impatiently waiting to be able to upload and process my first picture to test. Probably we will see this technology in what format whatsoever in the stock business sooner or later.

As Fotolia contributors we should get a discount on Adobe CC  :)

Since Adobe stepped into fotolia things seems to improve a lot. Hope the sales are going the same way. Thanks for the good work. :)

And my question: i tried now to convert credits and send them to my PayPal address. I entered the sum which was convertible and then your system tells that i don't have credits enough for convertion - "Vous n'avez pas assez de crdits disponibles pour procder leur conversion."
Your instruction tells "Ds lors que vous atteignez 50 Crdits gagns, vous pouvez les convertir en argent via PayPal ou Skrill (anciennement Moneybookers)" and my available credits were more than 50. Tax form ok.
New "bug"? Before i had no problems.

I've had the same problem but then I changed my requested credits to 50 and it worked. The remainging credits stayed on my account. Hope this helps.

Any idea what to do ?

thanks,

It's working

I would be very interested to know how the sales are in different regions/countries and what categories are best performing there.
I have the impression Alamy in Europe is only working for UK. Do I waste my time sending in Belgian, French, Dutch or German topic pictures ?

Dreamstime.com / Re: DT Review time

When you upload the same picture on the same moment on SS and DT chances are that it already sold a dozen time on SS before it gets approved on DT

123RF / Re: 123RF You have no downloads yet this month
« on: October 11, 2014, 09:51 »
You have 399 images on DT since Nov 2010 and only 112 sales. That averages out to about 2.5 DL's per month over that period. Why would you expect more than one a month on any site lower than DT in the ratings poll?
123rf boasts 32 million images on their home page - you just don't have enough images with commercial value.

Also your most popular image on SS has a typo in the description field.

Thanks for the remark. Before September my average downloads/month on 123RF where around 7/mnth
I also want to say that the low sales on DT generated more income than the higher number of DLs on 123RF.

123RF / 123RF You have no downloads yet this month
« on: October 11, 2014, 05:10 »
Since two months 123RF is dead for me. Today 11 Oct, monthly download statistic is still showing "you have no downloads yet", In September my total was 1 download. Anybody else facing this problem ?

Glad I've deleted my port when the getty made it free.

I suppose your post here is a good start.  ;)

General Stock Discussion / Re: Protect the market
« on: June 07, 2014, 08:50 »
Probably you're right.
For the moment I just see it as a customer service. Visitors that are already buying at an agency maybe find it in the "list".
I don't sell direct anyway (but that's another story) and I can build the list as I like and drop agencies when needed.

I'm not sure if it's good idea to welcome client on your own Sys site and send him to Alamy and GL then... This way we can put all micros list on the right side of image... SS, FT, DT, SF, 123rf, CanStockPhoto, etc, etc... What for?

My first picture accepted on GL  :). Here a link from my symbio site to it. http://7horses.eu/wp/blog/image/tubes-in-swimming-pool/?r=7horses.eu/wp showing a link back to the GL picture.
Yesterday I also applied to Stockfresh. Seems they are Europe based so maybe my port will better suite  their needs ?

Yesterday I applied to Graphic Leftovers. I never heard of them before but I was surprised by the "Fair Trade Contributor Site" logo they have.  Never saw this before either but it seems worthwhile to give some support.

Lots of info here:
http://www.microstockgroup.com/graphic-leftovers
Personally, I find the actual name offputting. Who wants to buy leftovers?
Or is there some other cultural/artistic illusion I'm missing?


Thanks for the link

Hardly any sales there and my last sales netted me 0.12 credits
Time to stop uploading ?

Dreamstime.com / Re: "Confidential" email from Dreamstime
« on: June 03, 2014, 05:51 »
If I can help Dreamstime with a few of my pictures to test out a new source of revenues I have no problem with that. At least they informed me about it and it only involves a small quantity of my pictures.
Remember Getty stole all your pictures to give them away for free without hope of ever receiving a dime and they even didn't inform you about it.

I use symbiostock for my site and I love it. Although I'm not selling directly it's a pleasant way to display my work and keep track where it is for sale. I've included the network feature and links to http://symbiostock.info so my search displays the works on other symbiosites to make some promotion. You can check it out at http://7horses.eu/wp/

The reason I don't sell direct on my site is due to purely legal issues attached to my personal situation.

The most usual way is take the plunge an start swimming. That's how I did it and I'm still struggling not to drown.  >:(

Alamy.com / Re: Alamy 6th? Surely this is a joke..
« on: May 02, 2014, 07:09 »
Alamy is a smaller agency but at least they treat their contributors as pros. Also they expect we do the QC like pros ourself and they do only some sampling for each submitted batch.
They sell in a different market mostly at other price levels and a fair  50% (usually) goes to the contributor.
Wish there were more agencies like this where I could sell my local (Belgium, French, Dutch) pictures.

Symbiostock - General / Re: Symbiostock Co-op Launched
« on: May 02, 2014, 05:34 »
Another approach could be that the artist build his own site and all the e-commerce stuff is handled by plugins which links to a unique coop symbiostock cie.
eg :
- plugin for coop central regristration
- plugin for coop licenses
- plugin for coop checkout
- ...

Does anyone has an idea how many pictures are left available at the DPC ? Now the opt out option is available probably everybody is using it ?

I just upgraded from a 16mp D7000 to a 24mp D7100 so I was a bit disappointed to read this thread.
I decided to do a test and resubmitted a picture taken at 24mp which  was rejected for focus issues. After downsizing, it was accepted in Shutterstock. (I also did some reprocessing of colors and cropping, but that was not the issue for refusal)
The original picture accepted at fotolia but not at SS
http://www.fotolia.com/id/64257005
and the picture accepted at SS after downsizing
http://www.shutterstock.com/pic.mhtml?id=189941966

I will do some more test in future with rejected pictures for focus issues.
