I don't need an app. I just count on my fingers. Don't even need all of them.

The only way to get through to them is to breach the trust between them and buyers. I suggest everybody setting up fake accounts and then taking photos of random people who look like they have expensive lawyers and then upload those photos with fake MRs. It won't make us any money, but it could result in a fun sh**storm to watch.

That is horrible. Are you sure it's public to see? Try to log out of your account to make sure it's actually visible to the public ...
Yes, I went out and looked through port.

Wow, that's a serious privacy infringement... How in the world did that release get listed for sale? Have you contacted them yet?
Yes, I've contacted them. No reply yet.

It is very strange, even information aside, a photo of this quality would be rejected.

Canva / model release published as stock image
« on: March 05, 2020, 13:28 »
 I've had several issues with Canva since they updated their upload but have not checked my port for a while. Now I did and found one of my model releases with all the personal information on it being listed for sale as a photo. What kind of review process do they have??

admin edit: changed subject to be more descriptive

Isn't SS $179 for 4K? That's the standard price I use.

Several MR forms that they accept have sensitive use or "no defamatory use" clauses in them. So how would they licence those for sensitive use? There's no way they'd be going through them to check which they can legally licence as such. Seems like a minefield for them.

My favourite is

Digital Photography School used to have the best forum, but it looks like they have shut it down to focus on being a pay for tutorials site.

I'm surprised nobody mentioned DT. Having to click submit on every picture is a PITA. Also BS is a nuisance since they changed the batch edit to replace ALL the information and not just what one enters.

There is no way to check is there? I'm sure I met the criteria months ago but have not heard anything. My current subscription is ending in a week, so I'm a bit worried about waiting and not getting it.

11 / IS unlicensed usage only for exclusive
« on: October 21, 2019, 23:30 »
I see the online form on IS to report unlicensed usage is only for exclusive content. I understand why they would do that if the source is unknown. But I've found a few of my videos all on the same YT channel with IS/Getty watermarks still on them, so obviously lifted from their site. Is there anyway to report those to IS or do I need to deal with that on my own? I've had YT channels taken down before due to copyright strikes but the process is annoying.

Several other agencies have keywording tips suggesting we use relevant metaphorical adjectives and emotions associated with the photo. CS is the only one that rejects photos because they can't physically see "success" or "sad" in the photo. Maybe that's why they also can't sell photos.

It happens all the time. SS reviewers are inconsistent. Try again.

Is this kind of usage of our photos allowed by stock agencies?

Leave comments on each one to warn people that they could get sued by the models in the photos since there will be no MR.

General Stock Discussion / Re: Subjective Keywords
« on: December 27, 2018, 22:22 »
Some agencies suggest using them and say they are helpful for searches. Other agencies, like CS, reject files for having keywords they can't physically see in the photo. Judging by this I'd say they are important because CS knows nothing about selling photos and it's generally a good idea to do the exact opposite of whatever they suggest.

Wow, those similars look like he uploaded every single photos from a time lapse.

Image Sleuth / No lessons learned
« on: September 19, 2018, 03:12 »
I found an agency watermarked clip on a YouTube video a month ago and it was taken down very soon after I submitted a takedown notice. The thiefs have since re-uploaded the video but replaced my stolen content with the stolen watermarked image from SimonKR. I thought YT penalizes users if they get multiple complaints about the same issue. I've already sent SimonKR a link to the video (I'm not putting it here as I don't want to increase the views).

So this gets a blog post but changing requirements for MRs doesn't?

You can also use Black Box for the low price of 50% of your earnings.

It actually started out as a joint venture with the CIA several years ago to undermine the stock market. After the CIA realized they had the wrong stock market they backed out but failed to remove the infrastructure for the devious plan.

For my stock animations I use 3D models that I created myself . But I need more complex 3D objects.. I would like to buy some 3d objects/models, is this possible? Or I must created all by myself? Which license allows this? Is there some page that sells this?


You have to check the license.  I use Turbosquid.
Turbosquid's TOS seems to not permit that:
"You may not redistribute TurboSquid materials as part of any design template, After Effects template, stock photography, video or clip art for distribution or licensing through any online stock media clearinghouse."

DAZ3D allows usage in 2D but not 3D.

And in true SS style, they do not include this info in their e-mails but rather let people get rejections until they can figure out what is happening. Just like the new MR requirements last time.

There are a few on Udemy - one of which is more of a free intro to an off-site course.

Be wary of Udeny. I've seen a few courses offered by people I also see on forums and their knowledge is wishy washy hearsay at best.

This "Professional" career advice site is using all stolen watermarked images. Some of mine there, check to see if any of yours are. All SS.
