123RF / Thoughts on Payoneer
« on: January 28, 2014, 05:15 »
Hi guys,

We have been approached by Payoneer to link up with them.

So if we did this, is anyone:
1. Interested?
2. Already with them?
3. Is beneficial if we had them as a payment option to you?

Hello, I'm Alex from 123RF.com.

We would like to get in touch with the developer to see if your system and ours are compatible and if they are not, what can we do to make them speak to each other!

123RF / 123RF.com to Start Accepting Motion Video Submissions!
« on: November 30, 2011, 04:55 »
HOUSTON, TX, November 30, 2011 - Since its humble beginnings in 2005, 123RF.com has been accepting stock photos from photographers and licensing them to advertising agencies, graphic designers and businesses under a Royalty-Free license. Today, 123RF.com officially announces the launch of its video submission platform. Keeping in line with the growing needs and demands for video and motion graphics in the advertising & media industry, this significant evolution for 123RF.com has resoundingly solidified its position as an established player in the Royalty-Free stock photos and digital media licensing industry.

Recent research reports by Nielsen[1] and Gartner[2] shows the increasing prevalence in the use of video and video based advertisements[3] especially in mobile devices is rapidly gaining ground over traditional forms of advertising. Stephanie Sitt, C.E.O. of 123RF Limited believes that the availability of internet bandwidth that enables the streaming of videos is a key driver for the growth in demand for highly creative and yet commercially orientated stock videos.

Were very excited to be able to develop the platform to open yet another income channel for videographers, agencies and other producers of stock videos. We certainly have the platform, the eyeballs and the right audience from the right industry - all thats left is the right content to meet that demand. Our traffic and internet reach according to Alexa, Compete and QuantCast has increased more than fifteen fold over the past 2 years, making 123RF.com the fastest growing Royalty-Free stock agency. enthused Sitt.

Sitt goes on to add, Our IT team have put together a reliable and fast video submission platform that ensures a stable upload, quick file-encoding and comes complete with a user-friendly interface for keywording and release attachment. To submit videos to 123RF.com, just create a Contributor account, and follow the instructions to start uploading. We have approximately 30,000 videos in our databases right now but would really welcome more to ensure that our clients will be spoilt for choice during the launch day, scheduled for January 2012.

More information on uploading procedures, commissions, legal documents and end user license agreements can be found on submit.123rf.com/footage. Email [email protected] for details and inquiries on video submission.

General Stock Discussion / Site stealing your images
« on: April 13, 2011, 22:45 »
Hi All,

Please look here:


Images clearly belong to bowie15 : http://www.123rf.com/profile_bowie15

Was your portfolio compromised as well? They have a "takedown" procedure: http://www.freeimageworks.com/dmca

But they're selling unlimited downloads too! http://www.freeimageworks.com/signup

If this isn't illegal, i don't know what is. I think you should check if your images are on that site and get them to remove it.

Best regards,

123RF / 123RF Image Enlargement Services & Your Earnings
« on: April 06, 2010, 04:47 »
Hi Everyone,

Great news! We've introduced another value added service to our clients - 123RF Image Enlargement Service. And you can now see this as being available on the website if you look at your file sizes, we now have the following:

Size            Credits   Your share
S                  1         50%   
M                  2         50%   
L                  3         50%   
XL                 4         50%   
XXL                5         50%   
100 MB TIFF       150     20 credits
200 MB TIFF       300     40 credits
300 MB TIFF       450     60 credits

We are employing an external party to provide this service to our clients. We are using your 5 credit version of the image to enlarge it to 100, 200, 300 MB TIFFs with some minor touch up, removal of noise, etc.  Don't worry about your original images, we do make sure that we keep everything cataloged and our external service provider will not distribute this version without first consulting 123RF.

The good news is, you're now getting approximately 13.3% of the FULL VALUE (not 50% as in the case of the S-XXL size images) of the credits for each image enlarged, while we share the remaining amount with the image enlargement service provider.

We hope that this will prove to be a good and profitable business model for you and our clients as it will increase the earning capacity for everyone. We will promote this service to all our clients and soon you should see some heavy hitting sales coming your way!

Thank you very much.
