You can delete some percentage of images now but you have to wait 6 months from your last upload to delete all of your images.

Yes, but how can I make it?

Hi, I have about 10000 photos and videos on adobe.

Hi,

I made my first hyperlapse footage but it didn't pass inspector review for this reason "Clip is a non-standard resolution or is pillarboxed, letterboxed or matted.".
What's export settings for hyperlapse footage in premiere pro cc for stock footage?

Ive got 4854 photos online on Adobe stock and about 3600 photos online on Fotolia!
There are big difference in the number of photos on both agencies.
I was uploaded all photos separately on both agencies but I still have to submit large amount of photos on Fotolia.
But if it is true that I have to submit photos on just one agency why there is so big difference in online photos on both agencies?

Hi,

Do I need to upload photos to Fotolia and Adobe stock or it is enough to upload photos to only one of these two agencies?
Will photos be copied from one agency to another automatically?

Newbie Discussion / Microstock Poll Results-earnings rating
« on: April 13, 2018, 17:09 »
Hi,
When I look at the Microstock Poll Results-earnings rating I can see number 22,1 for iStock and 267,3 for iStock exclusive.
Can somebody explain what that exactly means?

General Stock Discussion / Re: Passive uploads

I assumed they were looking for sites where you can upload and get files approved but not have them go live until later.
This would be useful eg for someone in the process of leaving iS exclusivity.
This is what I have asked!

General Stock Discussion / Passive uploads

Hi,
Is there some agency except Shutterstock where I can submit photos and keep it passive?

I dropped exclusivity a couple years ago. Was great for the few years before that. But like you, income growth wasn't keeping up with adding new files. The stats trending was showing things were headed downward so I bailed early.

It all depends on your breaking point. You can wait to see how far down it goes or you can be proactive and make a move. Maybe the drop will stop or maybe you'll get to 20,000 images with half the income of when you had 3,500.

You know the answer.
Can you tell me if your earnings have risen since the day you dropped exclusivity?

There's really no straightforward answer to this. Too many variables.

I dropped exclusivity for a bunch of reasons. Lack of control over where and how I could sell my photos was one of them. Now that I'm free to do what I want, yes I'm making a lot more money. I licensed a photo directly yesterday for $400. That's about 4x what I make at IS in a month now. I used to make well into four figures a month there as an exclusive during the good times.

But what you're asking is about exclusive vs spreading across multiple micro sites. Based on Return Per Image Per Month I'd say if I had stayed exclusive my RPI would have probably dropped close to what my RPI is now with files across four sites. No way to tell what would happen in your situation. You can only stay or go and see what happens. For me is was a pretty clear choice that it was no longer worth it. You dont seem to be at that point yet.


Thanks for the answer but now Im still hesitant. :)

I wonder if any of those who are not the exclusive can write what percentage of earnings come from every individual agency?!
The table on the right is probably as good a guide to that as any
If this table shows true informations, IStock exclusivity is still best option but Im not convinced in this. If so, the life of the photographer will be all the harder.

Huh, it will be still heavy decision. Iv got mixed portfolio:traveling,landscapes,bodybuilders, fighters, parachutiers, studio photos etc.

Hi,

How can I find my whole portfolio at Istockphoto?

24
It depends on how much are you earning at the moment as exclusive.
If we don't know it there is no way we can give you suggestions.
Also you do photo or video?
Now I have about 13000 photos and I earn same amount like when I started exclusivity in 2010 with about 3500 photos.

In addition, the current photos are much better quality.

My income dropped for about 50 percent in last few years and now is the same like in beginning.
I do mostly photos and some videos.

25
Hi,

Can you tell me your opinion about quitting Istockphoto exclusivity or not?

You were pondering the same question three and a half years ago, has your situation change since then?

Its a hard decision because I have about 13000 photos and its a big job to upload it on 5-10 agencies but Im sick from Istock false promises and non-transparency.
