123RF / Re: Fed up with 123RF

it has taken me 12mths but i may hit payout this month at 123rf ,i will say this in favour of 123rf they do take images that other sites have rejected and for me they sell so i will keep uploading

I heard on the news today that Great Britain is officially out of recession and only has 7% unemployment.  Good for them!  Hope the US follows suit shortly :)

You're right they did say that on the news today, but having watched a couple of in depth programmes with financial experts it would appear as normal it's not as good as those feeding the news channels would want us all to believe, the service sector showed a 0.1% increase over the previous quarter, what they haven't shouted much about is that the city was expecting a 0.6% increase and not forgetting that the recession was caused by a 4.8% drop in early 2009. So a simple way to look at it is take away 0.1% from 4.8% and we in the UK are still quite a way from rolling in clover.

We're due an election in May, I'd imagine there's going to be a few more happy announcements to come in the near future!

Sorry (but not especially shocked) to learn it isn't as rosy as portrayed in the news.  I was hoping some country in the western world was getting it right.

i just wish the so called experts on tv would shut up here in the UK they talked us into a recession every time the bbc expert came on tv the stock market collasped we are coming out of it ,they are now being negative again for f***k sake lets be positive and get on with it  they are so doom and gloom .

As any one else noticed a jump in their  sales at BigStock ,seems to me traffic being directed to BigStock by shutterstock .Iam havin my bme were BigStock is way in front of fotoila dreamstime and 123rf in cash and downloads.

Photo Critique / Re: Paranoid about noise and things
« on: November 07, 2009, 18:32 »
also you can use noise reducing software i use neat image and had many images accepted using this good piece of software ,ideally get it right in the camera use a tripod and the lowest iso you have got

well SS impressed me only been accepted for 3 weeks and 83 dls off 60 images not bad so my BME ,

fotoila come out 2nd then 123rf ,DT ,BigStock, fotoila took  2nd after having a bad sept  were 123rf easily beat them ,only 1 dl seprating them from 123rf for oct but 123rf brought in more cash with better priced down loads .

i have more images on 123rf funny how the ones rejected by the others turn out best sellers on that site,just a something i noticed .

Can i ask a question of the more experienced people in microstock  on this forum , i have just been accepted into shuttershock with 8 images out of the ten i presented ,the two that were rejected were shots of  english currency  on  the grounds of copyright .

These images have been accepted by all the other sites i have registered on. iam missing something on shuttershock .
