Never mind the new earnings table is working ;-)

Not for me.

"Why do you assume this market will conform to some sort of numerical pattern or model and the trick is to figure it out?"

Especially when that conformity is variable.

"but marijuana on white is still the best way to get downloads on ss."

Do we really KNOW they generate downloads?

I thought I'd look at Axon Guru just out of curiosity. I signed up, got the confirmation email, went to log in and got the "something went wrong" message.

So far, my DMCA notices have been disregarded. Am I being too impatient (sent 2 days ago)? Or are they just unimpressed by a DMCA?

"I did see some other search results with DepositPhotos previews - so I assume those items were stolen from DP"

Definitely not.

I found one of mine right off the bat - my all time best seller and it is not in my DP port.

Will have to keep looking for more.

I just got an email from ss to reset my password - just trying to make sure it's not phishing.

Most of my sales are from the US of A, and the 4th of July is Independence Day. Wouldn't surprise me if a lot of people take a long weekend, so they can celebrate Abraham Lincoln's rousing speech, back in 1492...


1492, huh?

I think he makes confusion with the day when Louis Armstrong walked on Mars

Of course! How silly of me.

So, I'm looking at Canva and they want a link to my portfolio to apply. I'm not sure what to put there. Any help?

I don't do an overabundance of family sessions, but I've got a few under my belt - just had one this morning, in fact.

My rate varies and depends upon the number of subjects. The way I see it, the more different subjects, the more photos you have to take to get one that works - or worse, editing a face from one photo onto another. I specify no destination charges for locations within a certain distance from me.

I had a shoot in December that was 9 adults - 2 locations, both about 45 minutes away from me. I quoted them $400, and they didn't quibble at all. I could have charged more, I'm sure.

I used to have a base price then prices for prints, including package pricing, etc. I didn't sell that many prints, so now I just give them a (higher) price for the session, telling them they will get the photographer's pick of a minimum number of images (varies by the number of subjects) and they can ask me about prints, or they can print wherever they wish. The price includes the session, basic editing, and the on-line, downloadable gallery.

I will usually do one or two of the finished files with extra effects so they can see what some of their options may look like, but I don't advertise that part. If I get motivated, I throw them in.

1)Using web uploader (not FTP) and no meta data attached to images. Will it show up later or will I have to re-upload?

2)1099 from Bigstock showed Shutterstock as payee.

I haven't even had a medium sized sale since January, so congratulations - this means they do still exist!

I believe these are FB downloads and FB appears to hold off on updating their info to SS (or some such thing as that). I don't know if they just report in once a month or what, but the multiple SOD's at regular sub price have been identified on ss forums as those FB downloads.

Where do you see which images sold? I know where to find how many, but can't figure out how to see what is selling.

« on: December 17, 2015, 19:37 »
It's been down for a couple of days - (he had one calculator I liked to look at). Anyone know of any news there?

It was back, now gone again.

Guess I'll be spending my time today on other sites.

Here too, and isitdownrightnow.com says it's down for everyone.

Adobe Stock / Newbie here and have rank question
« on: November 25, 2015, 17:09 »
I have received my first payout from Fotolia and my rank changed. I saw something in another thread that I have to go into my files and change my prices? How does that work?

I obviously have not read through all the fine print, but I am happy to see daily activity there as I slowly build my port. If there is a step I'm missing about increasing my sales amount, please let me know.

Thank you!
