I always select v3. Already selected one is indicated in red color.

123RF hardly review or sell any videos. That's not the place to put your videos.

Some people have also businesses in other fields and might not want to be associated with the micros.

Right, I would close my port if any of the agencies that I submit reveal my real name. It's better if they let us select the name we want to show in copyright statement, like SS do. Unfortunately, agencies like 123RF show username  in copyright statement (but it's still better than showing real name).

Hi,I am new to this,sorry by mistake i copied your element,No worries i deleted that illustrations immediately.Thanks for understanding.

Delete all your illustrations. All clip arts are copied from other sources.

Yes, same person.

I just pointed out one of his work. However, if you examine his port carefully, most of his illustrations consist of stolen components. Apparently, he is new to the business, but it's just matter of time that his port will be banned across agencies.

Now they know how to say sorry.

It would be better if they can inform contributors when something goes wrong in their site. Then we don't have to panic, but just wait till they fix it.

Let's see whether SS will send us an email with exact missing mount. If they had the loss, sure they would.

Sorry to disappoint you, but I'm afraid that it's not possible.

Check now. My images are back almost the same. #1 shot is back in #1 - the rest are close.

Yep, mine are back in previous order as well.

Anyone else noticed, that some of the sales don't show on a map? I had 1 sale yesterday and 1 today, and neither of them showed up on a world map.

They would say map is for just fun...

I had a couple so its not half of email yet. I noticed the magic words "we apologize for our error" seem to be missing.

They don't apologize anymore, but assume that it's all common knowledge.

And have they explained why recently accepted images are not shown in the port?
I don't understand how the overall user experience is better now, my experience was definitely better before.

Ok, I think I figured how the new algorithm works, if this is indeed a more permanent algorithm change.

- Photos are NOT favored over vectors as I originally though.
- The new rank sorting seem to be determined by how long the image has been on SS and/or how many downloads it has over its lifetime. This new change will definitely benefit veterans and older images. The newer images with less downloads are pushed down the rankings.

Do a search for anything and click on the image. The image ID that are lower are ranked higher.

I think new ranking system gives more weight to lifetime downloads of an image. Older images with more downloads are ranked higher than new images with less downloads. Apparently, uploaded date really doesn't matter, more the number of downloads, higher the rank. Yep, veterans will be benefited more.

Hi, I started recently, got some 50-80 files on FT, IS and SS. While with IS and SS I started having downloads right after uploading some 20 files, FT has zero movement for me, some views and that's all. While I understand that my portfolio is still tiny, I was expecting at least a fraction of what is happening for me at IS and SS to get me going.

I was wondering if the country selection on FT maybe has any impact? Or FT is simply a lower performer and need bigger amount of files to get thing going?

Probably you don't have what FT customers need. In my experience, best sellers at FT and SS are different. I don't know much about IS, but I guess IS is closer to SS with compared to FT.

So it's months over there? That's too bad.

Is it the same deal for images, or do they get reviewed faster?

In my experience, current review times are:
RF footage (slowest: few months) > RF images > Editorial footage > Editorial images (fastest: few days)

Hello everyone,

I'm new to 123RF and I'm kinda confused with the submission process.

I uploaded 70 or so royalty free footage clips, I filled in the descriptions and keywords for all of them and have them saved. Above each clip it says pending, but these clips are all still listed under incomplete when I look at my history. Am I missing something here? Are these clips cued for the review or do I still have some final process to complete?

I tried to contact them a few days ago but have not heard back.
They are queued for review. But the review of RF footage is really slow there. More often than not, it takes few months.
