Thank you so much for the information!

Do those principles apply equally to any type of content (e.g. images and videos)?

I price at 250/85 usually.

I was honestly puzzled and disappointed to read that email. It lacks to provide any points on why we should consider this offer.

Many events accept press to get free publicity in media. You just have to apply as a press to get the badge. It will allow you a free access and the right to license what you have shot there.

Better, but it's time consuming to calculate by how much :)

Don't blame the market. Make great clips and sales will come.

The market is still good, no to need panic and submit to istock.

I usually set it to 250/85 (4K/HD). Buyers don't seem to mind that.

Review times suck and I started getting a few rejections here and there, but can't complain about sales.

Same here. I guess their search could be favoring new authors, or new clips. Who knows.

It's just a wrong agency for selling images. Great for videos though.

I remember Thilo Semmelbauer was selling SSTK on regular basis while he was President and COO.


Seems like he didn't care much about company's future. And then he left right before the stock fell.

And the CEO is Jon, right? How come he was a great leader before, but not now?

By the way s that library even expanding?

I'd guess it does. Right now I can see 1661 pages of results for the Unlimited Library and 14134 pages for the Marketplace. We can monitor the numbers to see the dynamics.

Same here. Plenty of sales in September. October - no sales and one refund.

I need to correct myself. I was starting to worry that I still don't have a single sale, looked closer and noticed that the time frame on the finance page was set to display results for September only. After adjusting it I can see that I am having regular sales in October as well.

I can totally understand Rose Tinted Glasses. That was one of the reasons I have stopped uploading photos and switched to videos instead.

I contacted them about refund and here is their response: "Taking a look at the history, it appears the customer did not understand the process of purchasing clips, so we felt it was right to refund the purchase. The clip was not downloaded we track that and we dont allow refunds for any clips that have been downloaded. "

Same here. Plenty of sales in September. October - no sales and one refund.

I am not surprised. They have been on autopilot far too long.

It's my first month, but it looks promising. Earnings are comparable to about 3-4 days at Shutterstock so far (videos only).

These are sales through their Premier offering http://info.shutterstock.com/premier-video/
I got two HD sales for $58 and $104 today as well.

The next step should be to let European contributors get paid in euros rather than forcing you to stay in dollars just because you clicked the wrong link years ago. Grrrrr

I would prefer if they finally start paying everyone a fair royalty percentage of a sale regardless of currency. I have no desire to sponsor Adobe and European contributors.

Dissolve / Re: Dissolve price update

Wow. Are you sure? Since when do they offer 20%?

After reading all this I'm glad I didn't make a deal with them earlier. 30% royalty and executive experience at istock/getty, veer and fotolia all seemed like red flags. But if not for this move I wouldn't learn about Videoblocks and their 100% royalty offer, which is funny because surely that was not on the list of things Dissolve wanted to accomplish.
