General Stock Discussion / microstock goes NFT?
« on: November 15, 2021, 07:49 »
What do you think guys, about working for nft. Selling only one copy of an image for a good one time payment?

Give them a chance. The image preview is very big, maybe too big, but its a good thing for credit image buyers, they see now what they buy! :-)

If every agency were to cull their collections, removing copies, identicals,  I guess the total images in micro-stock wouldn't even amount to 20 million originals.

If they delete all the copies of the ideas, then not more than 10...images

Fotolia made it harder and harder for me to increase earnings with their site and then my downloads fell off a cliff.  That was so demotivating that I stopped uploading.  Nothing has changed since Adobe took over, I still see no incentive to upload new images when my earnings are so low.  Doesn't really matter who owns the site when I can't make much money there, I hope they do something to improve the situation, it can't really get any worse than it is now.


Thats the thing, i upload many new images but i was nailed at a fixed income. This year with a decrease of 25%. I cannot make images for that money. I will not upload images, too. I have heard from another contributor, his income was a little bit better,  a year after he dont upload more images...

Fotolia isnt consistently. One month your earnings can be good, the other one the earnings are worst.

Shutterstock is consistently.

Shutterstock: 70%

FT: 15%

Rest is the rest.

Hope they will kill DPC.

Maybe DPC IS Adobes new plan..

I guess my last thought is that they (Adobe) can't be bigger dickheads than the previous owners.

They paid $800,000,000/34,269,545=$23.34 per image to distribute. I am shocked.

Shocked, too. Didnt they have seen there is the sub model, where you can buy the images from 0,16$   :-)

Fotolia has made a change in their search. So many german contributors has a big decrease income. Good for international contributors, bad for us germans. There are no more visitors at fotolia there is only a big redistribution of income.

I have a big decrease at FT of 75% this month.

For me there is one fact.  TWENTY FIVE CENTS.

I am a supplier.  I am supposed to set the prices.  What other wacked market lets the "stores" decide what they are going to pay their suppliers?  Do you think Walmart says "I'll pay you 25 cents for each pillowcase in the box" and then in 6 months say "I changed our arrangement - I've raised the price on the pillowcases, but I've actually cut your wholesale price to 10 cents".  And furthermore, they have not paid for my content so they should not be able to share it with their partners, take a cut, change licenses and make any decisions.

Rant over.

I agree. They cannot cut the prices without agreement. I think its illegal to say thats Subcriptions.

What is with pic workflow, picniche, stock performer,etc. We are their clients and they participate and live from the health of the stock market too?

I've had e-mail contact with picniche/picworkflow in the past. I'm sure that if he'd have noticed what was going on he'd have done whatever possible in support of us and d-day. It really was such short notice for so many, especially in the states. Luckily, I'm lazy so my portfolio is small and easy to delete. ;)

Bob from picworcflow has a blog, there he can wrote about the situation and we can get i contact to the other contributors

Maybe another big agency can make an interview about the dangerous effects of 1$ agencies and what we can do.

Hello Guys,
I think until now d-day is really big success for all of us - but what will happen afterwards?
One idea from me - somebody of the russian initiatores should write a press release about this initiative ... then we should translate it into the most important languages and send it to all media we can, especially online-media and spezialized press. This could give our initiative a lot of more power ...
Thanks to all for participating in d-day!

I think its a great idea. But we must do something more.Maybe we msut talk with the other agencies and ask them to work TOGETHER against this rubbish.

In one post in another forum there was the idea to make a youtube video and viral marketing to get in contact with the other contributors

Fotolia don t want to make the opt out as standard disabled. So we must get in contact to all stockers, that they know about the DPC, but how?

" At any moment photograpgers can opt in or out by adjusting their contributors preferences in their Fotolia member area"
They say it like opt out has always been there..
And who are "photograpgers" by the way.


One BIG POINT MORE that they are not our friends

I think the dollarphotclub will be growing in the next years, because its the cheapest non sub model in the microstock.

Shutterstock must be do something, or many buyers especially in europe will go to this agency. Fotolia will delete the opt out or the ranking without opt out will be uninteresting. We are in the hands of this agency and they are not very friendly.

Not many images are opt out at this time. I have take a look at food. There are round 3,650000 Images at DPC, fotolia 3,830000. So we must tell this to all contributors that there is an opt out and why it is urgent to do this.
