Thank you all for feedback.

My guess, is that most of main shapes , elements that creates the composition are imported from a library. But again, it's only a guess and indeed requires a fair amount of skills to create it.

It would ve really nice to find some courses to learn whats the most efficient way to create such image.A nice tutorial

Also, another aspect to think about ,when you import elements is regarding Intelectual Property of the shapes. I remember that I've shoot some plane model and all images were rejected due to possible copyright issues. That plane was pretty similar with the one from this image. :)   


I was thinking also at Photoshop, but the Suitcase, the sand, the water, the trees etc. , they look animated. Were used some libraries to import those elements? I have no idea, but I really like the result :) and I want to try it but unfortunately I don"t know from wherebto start to compose such an image. Any tutorial would be highly appreciated.

Hi everybody,

I have a question, do somebody know what is the best tool/software that can create such images as the one attached?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

And a very general answer from Fotolia, telling that is not their fault...

"Hi Adrian,

We understand your concern and we are really sorry about that but please note that this commission is charged by Paypal/Skrill, not by us. Unfortunately there is nothing we can do from here. Our advice would be to contact them.


I will write a small letter to Shutterstock, Fotolia, Istock asking why they cannot find a reliable and decent commission agency for those who have such costs like me. It's a total rip off!

Probably they will do something about it, if many  complains like mine, reach them. So, let's start :)

I fully agree with Tror, that other commission methods should be added and let us choose which is more convenient for us, depending on location.

Good luck guys!

Nikovsk, welcome to my world! :)))

That is why I'm trying to see, if anybody from high commission countries find out a more viable, cheaper solution.

We work very hard for every sale, and when I see that a big percentage of my sales are gone ,just like that, it's not very encouraging. I'm ok with commission, but they have to be reasonable. Not 5-10% from the business...

Very nice, what can I say! :)

Thank you for your fast reply!

Seems to be the same deal with Paypal too... They have  3.9% +0.5+Fixed fee

I took the commissions from this list https://www.paypal.com/ro/webapps/mpp/ua/useragreement-full?locale.x=en_RO#8

My residence country is Romania.

Hi everybody!

Please I need to know what service you are using to withdraw money!

I'm from Europe and using Skrill is a nightmare in terms of commissions, at every transaction a lose 4%+4Eur+other commission....it is not right.

So, for those who are in the same position as me(I believe location matters) please let me know what you are using and how to have decent commission fees.

I even opened a different account (USD) different than my national currency , but for nothing.:(

Thank you,

Hi everybody,

I was surprised to see today, that if I'll make a payment from my Skrill account to my bank account, they will charge me almost 14 USD.

I have to mention that I'm from Eastern Europe, I believe that matters when it comes to bank commissions that they apply.

Therefore I'm seeking a new alternative and already send an e-mail to Paypal to ask them about commissions on these type of transactions( Paypal account to my own bank account). Paypal send me an answer, but a very general one, not containing any numbers or percentages.

So, what you are using at this moment and with what costs? (Bank Account in Europe)

Thank you a lot

Thank you, but being a total newbie, at this moment I'm looking for a free solution. I tried also GO Stock and StockUploader but without any success. Lightroom will be just perfect if the random order of keywording was available :(

Hi everybody,

I'm looking for a tool in order to keyword my photos. I do not like Lightroom because it doesn't allow random keywording , only alphabetical.

Any suggestions please? I'm looking for a solution that can let me to apply keywords on a photo and then upload to different websites. I'm not searching a solution that will suggest keywords.

Thank you,
