They need to work on faces and people?  :o

Obviously, or which planet are these women from?


You are getting a bit to emotional here and political as well. Totally unnecessary. The only point I'm making here is that if anyone with such a great audience place your art work it's worth thousands of dollars of promotion. Sure he doesn't pay for using your art but lot's of people will because he promoted your work and you will get a lot of attention of paying customers. And yes you can nag about things not being right but I personally would welcome something like this. And I will bet the artist in question will not be so unhappy as well. Even though she complains about not getting paid by Musk himself or being credited. C'mon think twice :)
But then still you can have another opinion. It's a free world still where we live, isn't it?

Can you tell me how in the world a microstock artist profits, when their work is stolen and published without mentioning the artist and linking to  their portfolio?

Hey Adobe, I guess we can now pay our Creative Collection license fees in US$ too, correct?


If I understand it correctly, we can decide on 28 February that we want to continue to be paid in euros. This way we at least have the opportunity to save another 3% paypal exchange fee.

You wish. You can be paid FOR THE LAST TIME in Euros, if your payout request is made til Feb 28.

20% down from July which was not great either. In other words: worst month since the implementation of ESP

Hasn't arrived in my account yet

Thanks to the incompetent idiots in charge, we're on our way to a recession.

I anticipate that many companies with either start downgrading or cancelling their microstock accounts from sites like SS and AS.

My SS sales has dipped in the last few weeks. Less big sales and less daily downloads.

Just brace yourselves for what's to come and stop supporting people who are economically illiterate.

It's funny how conservatives worldwide always claim recession and inflation are the fault of the current government and never based on the mistakes of the former one.

none below 0.35

The answer to your thread title is Yes, unless you own a yet undiscovered niche and are an excellent artist. But if that was true, you didnt need the stock biz.

Looks like I might make less than I did my first month Jan 2014.  Thats ten times less than my monthly peak.

I had to go back to 2011 to find similar earnings compared to the first half of January 2022.
Comparing my numbers after the levels change from the first part of Jan 2021 to 2022, my DL's are 22% less and my $$ are 28% less.

If the trend holds, I even have to go back to January 2010 to find similarly low earnings. My alltime best month was 9 times as high. Level 4 already.

i think you should call your lawyer and sue youtube, they are responsible for the content. not sure about us tho

Old thread alert. The youtube channel no longer exists.

Canva / Re: Monthly Payment from Canva

No payment here. They've been earlier the last couple of months buy several months earlier this year it was the 16th for me, so I wouldn't worry just yet.

Life is random, isn't it ?
Don't panic until the 15th

No panic, it's just quite unusual. Forgot it's a bank holiday over there at the lazy peeps country ;)

18 / No payment mail yet?

Did anyone get the "Your latest payment has been calculated" mail for August? Usually it comes between 2nd and 5th...
Or has anyone actually received August payment?

Hit me today. I think if Alamy pays microstock royalties, I should flood it with all my microstock images.

Not a single image approved out of more than 1250 that were eligible.
Maybe I should be happy

ETA: I didn't count but think I selected less than the half.

Just had to revive this thread after I found this guess who owns the top placement of 38 Million "isolated" images... with an image that is everything but isolated.
That's the worst kind of advertising shitterstock could wish for and they don't even care. :o


On a side note: the second one (Andrey Bocharov) does not only keyword spamming, the photos in his port are stolen, too. Found some in other portfolios, he just flipped them. Too bad Shittersuck wouldn't care if I contacted them.

TAKE THE MONEY before it's too late

They'll tell you what to do after you accepted.

I guess I should change my vote then??

Change the amounts in the poll first ;)
