After 1 min of extra thinking... So how many stock contributors will be banned? 100? 500? Shutterstock will be fine without them. This action is... Boring. I won't change my avatar or whatever. Nor publicly cry. Take it, or leave it. But you can fight :) I will be thankful for your activity.

I have an idea. If you still have your pictures online on SS go to your catalog manager and change the title of your photos to something like Don't buy from Shutterstock, Shutterstock is Stealing from Artists or something similar so buyers can see it.
And what they are stealing? Nothing. Next idea?

Max 20 min per month. I get quickly bored.

Can we please just stop attacking each other!!!
You seems to be over-sensitive :D

Yes I will. I'm not going to sell my good photos for 0.10 USD, I am not an idiot!

Keep us posted and good luck! I think the wait times to find out are much lower than before so hopefully you won't be waiting for months.
I gave up with Stocksy after I uploaded some files :D
I don't want to provide exclusive content. It is nice to get paid by 3 major stock agencies :)

8 / Quality. Whaaat?
« on: December 09, 2019, 12:19 »
OK, I have just simple question - is THIS the quality what is normally approved?

Anyway, why I see grass photos when I am looking for dog?

Is DS to be closed? Lol.

Thank you, I appreciate it :) Having latest Photoshop every year is cool!  8)

I don't know why people are wasting time with Dreamstime...  ;D

11 / Alamy is not 'healthy'
« on: March 13, 2019, 07:07 »
Hello to all,

is it just me who think alamy is not 'well'? Does anyone has some better information?

They reduced commission from 50% to 40%, but are there some new benefits to keep the situation little bit balanced?
Also, image is sold, but money hang somewhere... I sold several images and over 2 months I saw 0 USD, then appeared 12 dollars. it is just ridiculous...

Comparing to SS I am selling everyday also extended licenses.

Well, I think I will stop uploading new content..

Adobe Stock / Re: What is your position?
« on: March 01, 2019, 15:44 »
Who cares. Show me the money.
Well... 47,547.14 EUR in 5 years total. Quite bad, I was expecting much more. Sales went down somehow :(

Adobe Stock / What is your position?
« on: February 28, 2019, 16:58 »
Hello to all,

I am wondering what is your POSITION in Adobe Stock?
If you will log in to dashboard, you should see it in top.

I'm 6,640th  :o

Thanks :)

Adobe Stock / Re: Locked out of my account
« on: February 25, 2019, 09:46 »
I have over $700 sitting in my account.

No matter which company one is dealing with, I don't think it's a good idea to leave that much $$$ on the table.

I always take my royalty as soon as I hit the payout level, whatever it is. I'd rather trust my personal bank with my cash than a stock company.

Perhaps he has good sales and earnings 700 each 3-4 days  ;)

15 / Re: Acceptance %? What they want?
« on: February 23, 2019, 12:01 »
@davidbautista "They hate you." yes, perhaps you are right! And I hate them! So I should leave them as it goes nowhere.

And no, I am not showing my portfolio nor username so I can say whatever I want. I remember Lobo from iStock in old times, he was really an a***ole. I got permanently admonishments, temporary blocking and then permanent ban from forum.   8)

Hello to all,
What is your acceptance % on DT?

I have 41.1%. Ridiculous...
But with SS 95%, Alamy 100%, Adobe Stock 95 %

I am confused  :o
What? Mine is super high DT. Lowest in AS, Canva... Why is yours so low in DT? They almost accept everything. What are the rejection factors?

Crap like too many of the same object - I don't agree. Then I got something like 'we have enough of these photos' - yes, they have: under-exposed, over-exposed, wrong white ballance or weird composition.

Well, I am not frustrated, only seriously confused  8) So perhaps I should spend my time and energy only with TOP agencies.

Sometimes I feel mean when I think I'm too good for DT, look at this:

« on: January 26, 2019, 12:45 »
Heading should be completed:
I don't like iStock but... I love their money!


Lovely! Thanks. I have more 300 approved images, earnings higher than 500 EUR, and also higher approval ratio. And now I enjoy my favourite software :) It made me happier.

20 / Re: Anormal vector processing time
« on: January 24, 2019, 13:44 »
Ive seen Facebook posts from them over the last few days claiming that theyre working on fixing the the buyer side is affected as well.
Thanks for info! Yes, yesterday my images upload disappeared. Today upload is OK, also processing time.
But I don't know what is happening today.. today I have no sale. Very unusual...

« on: January 16, 2019, 12:15 »
Do you think someone's application get's "pushed back in line" every time that person uploads a new photo?

Btw. I don't think it's easy to get it, but I do think it's worth it. :-)
Well, I should finish application with 25 exclusive images. I don't knoooow... for me is more interesting to feed up shutterstock. All years I have 95% approval ratio, good sales, so perhaps one day in next winter I will feed stocksy.  ;D

It was simple for me. All my images had been uploaded more than 6 months. So I just deleted them.

Stocksy / Re: Is it so simple to get in?
« on: January 14, 2019, 11:07 »
If you want to be accepted by Stocksy desaturate a little the colors of your photos and make them a little brownish that's all

+include some transgender santaclaus wearing a plastic horsehead, shot on kodak portra. They like to accumulate unique stuff that's guaranteed to make that 0.1 sale / year.

Thanks for advice! I plan to do some arty photos. I have a few ideas, so I will enjoy it even it will be declined :)

I did one MR for all agencies. I downloaded existing releases from IS, SS, DT, and Fotolia, then I copied text from all agreements, removed duplicated content and made all requested fields. So some agencies has more information then they are requesting. Just Veer (yes, I did it long time ago) wanted a witness phone number, so added it there. and sometime I do a photo how model is holding signed release as I don't have a time for chatting with support about something what is missing. It is one A4 page with space for attaching 'basic' model's face photo (not the same photo from 'stock photo shooting').

I just noticed that stock contributors can apply for Envato Elements:

Thanks for registering your interest in becoming an Envato Elements contributor. We appreciate you taking the time to give us your details.

Please do not email us about your application or for updates on when we will be doing intakes as we will be unable to help.

The fact is they like arrogance 'remember we will not contact you unless you meet our criteria'. They are not able to say 'Thanks. No.'
