And of course none of the moderators know or have been briefed on anything... Total B.S.

Looks like they finally did it. They Just gave us a huge pay cut at Istock and didn't even announce it in a newsletter

Congrats on dropping your crown!  You have a great portfolio with even greater models.  It's Istock's loss.

Thank you for the complement. I have way more stuff that I was working on, Beauty images, Fashion images, and business related subject that I was supposed to upload at Istock but I stopped uploading around October. I was trying to reach 4,000 images by mid December. That never happened when my new images had stopped selling. 
I won't say the work that I'm sitting on is a waste, but it sure is a disappointment. I had quit my side job to do stock full time over the summer and had developed a business plan to have another 4,000 added and double my portfolio by next year.
Like you said a big loss for them along with the many other talented creative artist that will be leaving or dropping their crowns on Feb. 2nd.
Hopefully Sean invites me to join his website when he is finished with his business plan and gets it up and running...lol

You can count me in for dropping my Exclusive Crown and for deleting all my people pictures on Istock. That is over 1,000 images from my portfolio. I can't afford to be making $7- $45 a day with them anymore or for them to give away my files that I spent so much money on with wardrobe, props, renting studio space, and paying models.
