I submit images to DT through its mobile app but as someone said above..  Not even a single view. 
And yes ss has an android app which allow u to upload mobile images.  I have some uploaded via this route recently but no sale yet.

General - Stock Video / Re: Video: which sites are worth it?
« on: October 04, 2014, 03:57 »
I think sunsets, testshots etc...or files that simply havent sold in several years can be priced cheaper. Not everything deserves 60 dollars. And many files dont even sell when priced at 10 dollars. Some stuff is simply not useful.

But many of my files have been selling for years now at 60 dollars, so i keep them there. I also have a series that I will price at 90-120 dollars, just havent processed it yet. This file will for a year only be available at pond5. If it sells, Ill keep it there, if it doesnt, Ill lower the price and send it to SS as well.

I also price my photos between 5-25 dollars. There is no reason to keep it all at the same price.

Pond5 is a real market place and you get what you pay for. Customers often buy the most expensive clip from a series, because it is the best one.
i liked your strategy jasmin. Specially placing some videos a year in pond5 and after that period reconsidering them whether to upload alre where or lowering price. But dont forget to mention in the description of those videos that they are exclusive to p5 atm. I dont know about lowering price of clinche videos. I almost always keep the price above 100 and they do get sold. Not sure if had been sold more frequently if i had kept their price low. Like i sold a video of simple firework (not very vivid though) for 108$ few months back. Where as there a lot and lot of much better fireworks video there for all price levels.

I'm using a Core 2 Quad with 16 Gram(ddr2) and it is working fine for HD and FullHD video editing.So the i5 CPU with a memory upgrade from 8 to 16 will be fine ...but not for 4k of course :) and yes there is a huge difference from i5 to i7 :)) Good luck
Huge difference? I heard there is not much difference, You have quad core, that mean i7 ?
Thanks for reply

anyone please ? Or all use i7 ?

I need to get a new desktop pc. I do photo video edit for stock. I wanted to get i7 processor with 16gb ram with some dedicated graphic card, but the problem is the desktop pc with only i5 processor and 8gb default ram is available in my country and i dont want to buy another laptop..
so if any one using or has used i5+8gb ram for video editing, could you please tell me if i go with this configuration or only i7 is best? do you find any significant difference in i5 and i7 processor for video editing in after effects/premier (and also photo edit too)
Thanking you in advance..

How can people even write such emails. Ok you are running a non profit organisation, so what, i am not running any non profit organisation.
I think she was successful with this email earlier somewhere so she just pasted the same to try on you.

Stocksy / Re: Stocksy's call to artist
« on: June 14, 2014, 00:28 »
what should be the minimum size of 25 sample images ? and as it is for evaluation purpose so can one send images which are already on any other site ?

I'm not sure about the number of sample images but yes, you can submit images for your application that are already on other sites.

Just to understand this better. The sample images after review will get approved for sale (like SS) or they are just part of the application to get approved (like iS where the sample images need to get submitted again for getting into sale).

I think it should be just part of application like IS if stocksy has not changed the rule what were there last year, so following some old stocksy threads here, its for application purpose and if you are accepted as stocksy photographer once, you have to submit again so that they can be reviewed before including to the stocksy collection. If its not so then any stocksy member kindly correct me.
And i dont see anything wrong in the image posted in above link, its just that microstock has changed our view and taste for photography. I liked Michael's recent post about stocksy in his blog
When I submitted my application yesterday, it stated the files must be at least 5.8 MP..

Thanks Tanya. Am I reading it right.. at least "5.8" MP ?

i would say try exclusivity as your images are performing better in istock. Going exclusive to non exclusive is easy but the other way is not i think especially when you have spread images in many sites (and hence their partner sites) because its really hard and unreliable whether the pp sites also have also stopped selling your images after months of closing your a/c in the parent microstock site. Again if stock photography is not your only job then it may may be harder to upload and maintaining large portfolio in multiple sites though there are some tools to upload at multiple agencies at a time. I myself now uploading to 2-3 agencies only though i am non exclusive. If i were at your place, i would have tried exclusivity. But be ready to also accept the negative aspect of exclusivity if you face in future. Good luck.

ss does automatically but in p5 you have to upload both 4k and hd.
Thanks, does ss do sd, hd, 2k?
i had to upload only 4k and it was converted into hd, sd and web. Not 2k.

that means it will show files with zero or least downloads for the search terms ! Great idea. Good for all.

So IS now saying us (indirectly) that you have to pay istock a fee to sell your images from istock. Now wait and see when istock publicly announces this.

General Macrostock / Re: Anyone on Agefotostock?
« on: January 25, 2014, 04:09 »
When i joined MSG i wished to see Alamy in the poll(because Alamy was and is still now my one of mainstream stock income source)  but i was told that this forum is "Microstockgroup" and sales in alamy don't come regularly as in micro, so there is no use to include alamy in poll but now we see it has been included. So AGE can also be included, specially now when even AGE has a separate section LBRF (Low Budget RF) for micro images (one can not send his microstock images to regular RF section). So i guess AGE is not here in poll because i believe only few MSG active members are in AGE and there is probably no regular sales from age too. I have not sold any LBRF or RF there, just RM and that too very few BUT for good price.
Now i don't submit my images there now, probably because fewer sales compared to effort to submit images. But i really like age's admin, support team and some very gentle photographers working with Age. Very friendly and ready to help, any time.

I appreciate your move Tyler. Personal attack(if any) should be avoided.
