Discussione Italiana / Nasce Microstock Italia
« on: September 03, 2012, 04:16 »
Un saluto a tutti i lettori Italiani.
Vi invito a visitare il mio nuovo progetto "Microstock Italia - Il Microstock raccontato in Italiano": Notizie, Articoli didattici, Strumenti, Interviste, Agenzie Microstock.

Tra le altre attivit, sto realizzando per il sito una serie di interviste ad autori attivi in ambito microstock, se foste interessati a raccontare la vostra esperienza e mostrare alcuni dei vostri lavori di fotografia stock, potete contattarmi via mail info (at) microstock o tramite il modulo che trovate sul sito alla pagina "".


Official launch in these days... to celebrate picWorkflow, Bob kindly offers 2000 credits for a contest on MyStockPhoto, check it out!


Hi All,
Visco Images, a new stock photography agency, announces instant cash for the submission of new images and some big prizes of thousand dollars.
All the details here:


My Pleasure, Tyler.
I will post an update on December, just to remind the campaign.

Great campaign, Tyler.
I'm going to shout it out and make my donation :-)
No idea for counting tweets... when I've done a twitter contest, I used the search tool but probably there is something more sophisticated.

Thanks Pete for the mention :-)

Hi all,
good news from an exclusive conversation with David Mail of ProStockMaster: Pixamba + PSM integration in 3-4 weeks!
Check it out:


your work will be appreciated. I think the main goal should be the speed up of the FTP processes and storage features are not so in demand in my opinion. Price has to be low, i.e. Premium iSyndica account was 80$ for 5000 credits, about 0,016$ per distributed file (plus all the analytics, storage, etc features bundled in that subscription). So, I will not pay 4 cents, 1-2 could be in evaluation :-)
Thanks Bob,

Discussione Italiana / Dreamstime Tax Center

Per coloro che dovessero ancora compilare il modulo fiscale W-8BEN relativo al Tax Center di Dreamstime, alcune indicazioni sul mio sito:

Hi All,
it's the same old story... as we have seen for Shutter, Fotolia, ...
They now are now accepting the W-8BEN online form WITHOUT an ITIN, continuing the investigation:

"For now we will accept the W8BEN forms without the ITIN number and will continue to investigate this. To be 100% safe we continue to recommend to use the "applied for" option and to send the documents to the IRS.

There is no guarantee we will be able to withhold at the treaty rate if you didn't provide an ITIN and you didn't use the "applied for" option. But once again we will investigate this and for now we will use the same withholding rates as if you provide the ITIN, given that you are from a treaty country.

Considering that the launch is not far, it is better to make sure that the W8BEN forms are filled. If you encounter any issues please email support. Hope this makes everyone comfortable. "

So let's wait a couple of day and then fill the online form :-) I will make a post with a sample of the W-8BEN as I did for Fotolia.

Flattered Leaf!
Here another invitation code


Ciao Spantax,
concordo con Claudio. La grossa difficolt superare il test iniziale di Shutterstock ed iStock. Una volta superato tale scoglio, le percentuali di accettazione possono diventare simili ad altri siti.
Se vuoi provare con altri siti, direi di partire da BigStock, 123RF, CanStockphoto.

DepositPhotos / Re: DepositPhotos affiliate program

Lee and I have already "debated" about Depositphotos on the RasmusRasmussen blog.
I agree with Lee about their not total transparency. The first approach was quite spammy.
On the other hand, I can give you some facts:
- I uploaded my photos and got my payout of 64$ (in a few days)
- Depositphotos is making an advertising campaign on my site. They bought three different kind of banners and payed in 2 days without problems.
- I've got my photos on a dozen of sites where I haven't see a penny in a year

I can't assure if they are safe or not, but make your choice... you know the bad and the good now ;-)

So, another affiliation link to feed that beast

OK Leaf, done. The link to the survey was added on the sidebar of
