Shutterstock.com / Re: Shutterstock Footage Rejections
« on: January 16, 2020, 19:03 »
i ve heard in the past that people who resubmited their content for second and third time got warnings from ss for ban.isnt that risky??? i agree maybe some cases the reviewers are right cause in the end of the day the photographers make mistakes too as much as experienced they are,but in most of the cases the rejections have nothing to do with technical problems  Just an AI doesnt know what its accepting or rejecting or reviewers who like to reject just to earn more money 

i just needed to say somethin to this dumb thread ;D

Better to get one image accepted and one rejected in Adobe with one sale instead two accepted with no sales in Picfair. I like the site, but we are here to make a business.
i agree with you but on the other hand, look at the ss thread what is going on and at the ss forums.many want to quit submit images cause of rejections and the moronic rejection reason.and also that sale you say its 24 p or 37 p compare to 20 pounds or dollars or 10 pounds now this guy said that he earned
and i said ITS ANOTHER ALTERNATIVE.i am not saying quit adobe and ss and post in picfair only

still the best part of this site is the no reviews.i know this can be a not good thing sometimes but when ss acting like crazy lately with rejections,and on adobe i got a rejection the other day of a silver watch in a red background and the reason was out of focus DUHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.then for me it still is a good alternative

hi is this agency only for us contributors? they give you some contract to sign and send it but they ask the adress  you live in only  not the country like other agencies.and do you have to send them a set of 10 images for eg as a test like on ss to accept you?
are they difficult with acceptance?

you can shout, get ungry, upset, cursing all you want but in the end of the day there is nothing you can do about it.just submit new content and dont let it bother you.if they accept it FINE if not THEIR LOSS their site their rules.at site.
My only guess is that  these people who review the photos they  are lookin at the photos theme.
some bored reviewer hating his life and job and wanna shoot himshelf for scrolling thousant of  images and his head starts to go loco and says
ye em nope
or some reviewer with no experience in photography
ye emm NOPE

or some 18 reviewer who likes trolling

General Stock Discussion / Re: timelapses from pentax camera
« on: July 07, 2019, 18:02 »
ok thank you i will do it in the traditional way with lr etc and leave the auto timelapses for youtube or insta.
iphone has a built in timelapse and the stock sites accept the iphone vids thats why i was wondering about the pentax camera.

General Stock Discussion / timelapses from pentax camera
« on: July 07, 2019, 09:08 »
hi few months ago i bought the pentax ks2 which has a built in timelapse and it does the job automatically.it makes a timelapse video in 2 words, i dont need an intervalometer for eg.or to ad the photos in lr and make a timelapse.there. i created some nice timelapses and i have the adobe premiere.so  my question is
do i need to edit my timelapses on adobe to send them to stock sites <pond five in the one i wanna send them> or send them without post editing?i am new to the whole video thing so i am not sure what the reviewers are lookin in timelapses videos apart from noise or artifacts.does anyone have a pentax camera and did you  send the timelapses videos straight from the box without edit?

and you still with them?

i remember when i first send to them a bunch of photos to pass the test lol they aproved me as a contrubutor then i send the same approved picture and they rejected it for beeing too soft somethin like that. and now 4 years later this image the same image sold 2 times on twenty20 go figure

As a buyer, I am happy to go to ExcitingStock for all my unusually sized artboard vectors and blurry photos of dead flowers.   They have everything I need, including out of focus ducks!

General Stock Discussion / UFOS on stock???
« on: April 19, 2019, 08:57 »
ok this is is gonna sound super moronic but do you have pics of ufos in stock sites??? i mean if you do they go as editorial? LOL i doupt you can get model  release from alf lol
i have a picture of a Big ufo over new york.ofcourse is photoshoped but can i post it on adobe for instance?

Also like in FAA you dont have to sell your pictures for pennies like in stock sites.so that is  a must regardless of low or zero sales
Because zero sales of files of $XXX is better than 1000 sales of $X.
i was just saying that is another option and if you get a sale you wont get 25 p or 38 p or whatever p lol
the no rejections and the set up your own price that may attract some users out there.like i said i dont have sales on picfair so i dont care anymore.   

i have zero sales too for 2 years now .i tweeted my portfolio many times on twitter  and i got some likes and last night a follow from picfair lol but unfo its been dead for me .and i didnt even  bother to check it for few months now.last night was the only time i uploaded something after a while .
The only good thing about picfair and mostphotos is the no rejection thing yes it can be a bad thing some times when the site is flooded with crappy photos,but its easy to upload set the price and hit the button and wait.you dont need to wait for aproval or rejections for silly tecnical problems.The site is just another solution to storage somewhere your photos and sell them.

you know if we were talkin about 50 100 dollars yes they wanted to keep in anyway couse thats what greedy people do .but 20 CENTS? 20 CENTS?and not to mention this the person who bought this pic and he is gonna use it somewhere he or she will make more money thanks to this picture than the photographer who only sold it for 20 cents. :-*
i wanna believe that they were just bored to ad you 20 cents to your pp account couse well 20 cents is a joke amound of money,and now they dont care.
thats why is best to stay with the top agencies out there regardless of their dumb rejections at times than wasting your time and energy on these small agencies.when you are not getting many sales from ss or adobe maybe these sites are another option but unfo this kind of thing happens and you lose your sleep over it.
just think that you posted your pic somewhere someone stole it and move on.i was close to join them after i signed up but when i read so many negative reviews about cb i am glad now i didnt put not even a single photo on them
good luck rippin of their top contributors.

« on: February 15, 2019, 19:27 »
actually foap now partners with getty but they want ecxlusivity so i dont bother upload there any more.also i think they give more emphasis to their differect contests run by different brands.i send some pics into their contests in the past but none of them was accepted couse  the brands review the entries.so its difficult to win the big bucks unless someone here won their challenges
i had a sale of 5 dollars and that was in 2013 and unfo my only sale
they changed their review policy and you dont get dumb rejections from dumb users.the pic i sold there it was rejected back then. some idiot rated my pic   2 while it was a good photo.it was a picture of flags in london during their olympic games and i forgot it and then i posted again and voila got high ratings and sold in 2 days.I couldnt sell anythin else there unfo through the years
on the positive side i got over 7000 followers lol that is somethin i guess   

xaxaxaxa so let me get this straight your photo was in the book cover of a book that became a worldwide  success more than the twilight crap series and it made millions and you only god 400????? ARE WE SERIOUS HERE??????
and the most pathetic lets put the money aside here  of all, where is the credit for the photographer?Photo by michael something

well as for exposure you can always try instagram you get more views there than fliqr.and when you decide to sell on microstock then i dont know but its not very safe to have these sold images on this site.unless you have your own site and you wanna promote your work.for instance one of my pics was sold last night and it was also  to some silly iphone app photosharing app and i went and removed it the next day.the theft is a big issue with these so called photo sharing sites.
