Any minute now an armored van will pull up in front of my house and bring me a bag of money from Adobe, lol...  ;D

@Matt

Please answer my question very clear. I've 550 images nominated, will I get the payment for these in 1 go or it will be paid partially?

I'm not Mat, but he already has made what happens clear. Adobe Stock will make decisions on your nominations, so they could accept 0 to 550 of of them. When they decide you get credited and they will be deciding in more than one intake between June 23 and Sept 30

Thank you so much for your reply. I hope they will accept all assets at once instead of partial payments.

Adobe Stock / Re: I cannot see my recent photos in portfolio
« on: February 25, 2020, 03:26 »
Hello Everyone!
I've uploaded about 90 photos last week and they were all approved. The problem is that I cannot see those photos in my portfolio nor they are coming up by searching them on adobe stock with any keywords possible. Is this normal or some kind of error?

Thanks in advance!

This is a known issue that the time between approval and visibility in specific portfolios is slower than usual right now. To my knowledge, this should be back to normal reasonably soon.

Thank you,

Mat Hyaward

Thanks you for the update Matt. Looking forward to get it solved soon.

Adobe Stock / Re: I cannot see my recent photos in portfolio
« on: February 24, 2020, 07:15 »
Same issue here. What is more concerning is that they are not showing in a regular search by keywords. I contacted them a few days ago and then received an email saying that my case was closed and resolved but it is not, my files are still nowhere to be found. Since then I had new files approved with the same result.
I already had this happened to me some months ago. Since then I always check that all my newly approved files are indexed in their database. But everything seemed to work fine recently until the last one or twee weeks.
Hope they fix that quickly because it is really frustrating. And the longer it takes for them to index your 'lost' files, the more buried they are by new content when doing a search sorted by most recent.

Thank you for reply, can you share the support email ID so I can send them a reminder as well?

iStockPhoto.com / This is all we got - A SORRY
« on: September 20, 2019, 15:40 »
There were a number of licenses from one of our distribution partners, Canva, that were refunded on the August 2019 royalty statements and then re‑reported at a corrected amount.

There were two reasons for this:
Some Canva licenses of Essentials images were reported using the incorrect currency (USD instead of AUD). These were initially reported on the June 2019 statement, and corrected on the August 2019 statement.

Throughout 2018 to July 2019, a number of other Canva licenses were reported incorrectly to us at double the actual revenue. This resulted in an over‑payment of royalties to contributors. These were corrected on the August 2019 statement.
In both examples, contributors impacted by this would see the original license removed and the correct re‑license amount reported, which will be lower than the original license. All refunds appear in red on the royalty statement.

If you are seeing a number of refunds associated to Canva, we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and for not notifying you in advance. Were looking at our processes to try to ensure we can avoid this kind of issue in the future.

In my case it says Revenue -2.66 USD

Can anybody explain what happened here? I've 256 downloads but no earning at all?

Shutterstock.com / Most Popular Tab is gone back to Relevant
« on: April 10, 2018, 03:47 »
Hi Everyone!
I've just noticed that SS have changed their Most Popular tab back to Relevant. How do you think this will impact on sales. We were getting used to this change but they've reversed that changed just now.

Your inputs will be helpful for newbies like to understand the impact of this change.

Adobe Stock / Best Sellers and Newest Files criteria
« on: March 22, 2018, 10:55 »
Hi Everyone,
I was wondering if you can share your experience about what is the criteria for fotolia to show your photo in best sellers or newest files criteria, I've more than 2000 files but none was ever shown as best seller or newest files.

Thanks!

Yes you heard that correct, here we are working day and night for years to produce stock photos and shutterstock security is so week that you can download the image on this website by giving original image URL:

Is there any way to stop this nonsense?


The first thing that would help is if people would stop posting actual links to the offending site. You are just helping them!  ::)

I posted this link only here to professional stock photographers but they do have a chrome extension as well and I am sure many are using it already.

I just tried it with one of my images and it works.

Although it's a small resolution file (1000px) it's still worrying.

It's like wack-a-mole...these sites just keep popping up after getting shut down.

& the 1000px version is good enough for more than 80% of users to use the image without buying. This is where artist get smashed in head..

This has come up many, many times. SS seems to not care about closing these loopholes.

But this is definitely costing us photographer a lot. People familiar with these sites don't bother buying the images because 100px image is more than enough for them to use on website or even in printing

Hi All,
Today, I was redirected to ESP automatically but there is still no option to see my unpaid earning. Can anybody guide how to do so? I triedl to click on Royalties but it says "Royalties data will not be available until your first transaction has occurred. Please try again next month"

Shutterstock.com / Shutterstock Behaving strage again
« on: December 27, 2016, 13:23 »
Hi All,
I uploaded 94 images on 25th and 85 are approved without any email or notification, one of those were sold few hours ago but when I click on that image or any other image it giving me this error.

"This image is pending approval or doesn't exist"

Is this normal or something is actually wrong there?

Hi All,
Shutterstock have the new option for buyers to select 2 images pack for $29. Can you estimate how much a contributor will get in that case? http://www.shutterstock.com/subscribe?clicksrc=full_thumb

We are normally getting $1.88 if buyer sign up for 5 images pack but this is new case.

Thank you all in advance
