Can someone please tell me if I am missing something here?

My works are flat vector so the file size is naturally small. VERY small. Most of my files are only 800-900 KB even though they are vector sets with at least 6-8 graphics in there.

How can I get the file to be 4MP? I tried double the artboard size and can only get to 2MP at most. Am I supposed to make my artboard to be ridiculously large or is there another way that I don't know?

Thank you.

I just posted in another thread, but this could explain the massive drop:

"Most of my new images can't be purchased.

You can find them in searches or portfolio views but when you click the specific image you get nothing but a greyed out screen, like the pop up window to buy the image doesn't work. Explains poor sales this month for me. Really bad news. Anyone else?"


I randomly clicked on few of my images (as a buyer) and had the same issue. The pop up purchase screen just greyed out and I wasn't able to click on anything. The sales graph on my account shows a very drastic drop in July and this probably explained it.

Hi! Have you guys been able to upload at all? I've been trying to upload my vectors a few times since last week with no success. The processing bar doesn't even move one bit :-\

Is the site even working for buyers? This site is a low earner for me anyway but July just fell of the cliff.

The thing with recreating a good seller is that you lose your search rankings. This can mean your recreated image won't sell much at all, even if it's better than the original.

Thank you. I've been thinking about this as well. This image has been on top ranking on pretty much every agencies and under very generic but popular keywords. The search algorithm has changed so much and constantly that I doubt new images will get there easily.

General Stock Discussion / Selling Exclusive Right?

I was contacted by an agency for selling full copyright on one of my image for $2,xxx and was wondering if there is a con (or cons) that I should be aware of. To be honest, this image will make more money than that in its lifetime since it already made almost that much in just couple years. However, it is also something that I can easily create again (not the same image of course) so I am not really worrying about giving it up forever.

Does anyone have an experience with this and do you feel it's worth it? Are there questions that I should be asking them?

Thank you so much in advance!

OP here. Just want to give an update. After waiting for their reply for almost 2 weeks, I got a message from another member telling me to try the "Forgot Password". So I did, and got reply from Getty next day. They also gave me the log in and a link to reset password.

By the way, I tried using my old log in in the beginning and that didn't work. The new login that they gave me was my account number plus few additional numbers.

iStockPhoto.com / Missed the ESP Sign In - What to do now?
« on: March 11, 2017, 19:42 »
Hi, I received the ESP invitation in the email but by the time I got a chance to sign up for it (I was out of country, no access to computer), the invitation is already expired. I already contacted iStock for help but it's been a week and still haven't heard from them.

- Does this mean I miss my chance like... forever?
- From what I understand, they've moved all the contributor tools to this new ESP and I won't be able to access any information on istock or Getty, is that correct? Is there any other way to access the contributor page?
- Now we can only upload image through ESP, correct?
- What is the other way to contact iStock regarding this issue? I used the online form but was wondering is there an email or phone number (probably not) that I can use to contact them.
- Are they normally this slow for reply? I haven't contacted them for support for so long but they said it will take about 48 hours to get back.

Thank you so much!
