Adobe Stock / Converting Credits
« on: November 13, 2011, 22:44 »
I am having a heck of a time trying convert my credits to a payout at FT, I've searched all over but can't find the payout area? I am at payout level, of course I've searched all FT "help" areas and can't find directions. Any direction would be greatly appreciated :)

123RF / No Response, No Money
« on: March 09, 2010, 12:48 »
I just had an interesting conversation with a customer service rep at 123rf.  Would not transfer me to anyone regarding a contributor account.  Said that I needed to continue emailing regarding my payout which is over a month late.  I have emailed numerous times with no response.  She then told me she is not allowed to transfer me (contributors) to her supervisor.  I am quickly getting tired of this would really like my payment.

Any ideas?

Cameras / Lenses / Refurbished From Adorama. Your take?
« on: August 03, 2009, 17:03 »
My 40D was damaged recently and insurance is working to replace it.  I have been looking into the refurbished models at Adorama.  Anyone have experience or opinion on a refurbished piece of equipment?

Just curious if anyone is familiar with them because they downloaded one of my images off of FT. Just find it odd that a site which I understand after reading translated text is an RF stock site. Why would they download images from FT? ???

General Photography Discussion / MR for band shoots
« on: February 07, 2009, 01:24 »
Shooting a band soon, in exchange for MR's. I will have each person in the band sign a MR but what if anything do I need for the "band" itself? Has anyone run into problems with only having MR's for the individuals and not another type of release for the band as a whole?


Dreamstime.com / Cartoon Characters
« on: February 04, 2009, 16:40 »
I was searching through DT last night and stumbled onto images of copyrighted cartoon characters. They're more like pages for a coloring book since they have mostly just black outlines. When I looked through the person's port I noticed lots of different characters from lots of different movies. I emailed DT and got a fast response that they'll check it out. But I'm still wondering... is that legal?? I can't imagine it is??

Bigstock.com / "Quality" rating of accepted images
« on: January 20, 2009, 20:19 »
I just noticed that when you view all of your accepted images here you can search by the "quality" of your images (the quality being either excellent, good or ok). Certain images have been rated probably by the reviewer when they were accepted. Anybody know how this relates to a buyers search results? Considering this potentially is just the individual reviewers opinion I'd hate to think this puts your images back in a search result??

It appears that this is not consistently done on every accepted image

iStockPhoto.com / IS Keywording on My Images
« on: January 19, 2009, 16:50 »
I have been auditing my images at IS since sales have slipped down to almost zero and found that I can not get my footballs to show up in any searches despite keywording updates. I emailed support & was told they did appear under specifically "american football black background" but I still can't find any them.

Is it my searching or could somebody please check search and see if they are able to get them??  ???

Keywords: american football black background

other keywords apply but bring up too many pages to sort through of course, I have tried other keyword searches but still can't get anything to come up???

Very much appreciated  :D





Adobe Stock / EL earnings drop?
« on: January 18, 2009, 16:41 »
I have been trying to beef myself up at FT and was uploading today and noticed my EL potential earnings for that image would be $3.30?

Yes, I am white level still but I haven't been able to find anything about the earnings dropping?

Is this old news? :-\

StockXpert.com / Reminder to monitor your JIU sub sales!
« on: December 11, 2008, 13:29 »
I noticed last week that my sub sales at JIU had stopped on Nov 18 so I decided early on in this week to have someone I knew with a JIU subscription download 2 images of mine. Well, I waited all day for something to post to my account and when it never did I contacted support. Although I have not heard back from support yet for the last 2 days I have had JIU downloads post to my account all at 4:14 am so I am assuming this is some sort of system update/processing which is catching up.

So my point is only to remind other contributors that StockXpert is still having issue's with this (unless I am a single rare case) and if you don't watch out you may fall through the cracks!

When I first started with StockXpert I emailed support and actually got a phone call response! Now I can't get emailed responses, this is the 2nd time  :'( but I still have faith in them cleaning up!

Dreamstime.com / Ever had your DT account frozen??
« on: October 15, 2008, 13:02 »
That was my great morning surprise! First I thought fraud but then I read my email which said they realized they did not like any of the model releases associated with my approved images.


Please be herewith notified that we have suspended your account.

Following a routine review, we discovered that all MR documents are generated on computer
and some even have the name of the agency erased. The signatures are also added digitally.

We strongly request you to replace the Model releases. Once you have correct MRs
uploaded, please send us the matching link of the ones that need replaced and of correct
replacement. Also, please e-mail us photos of each of your models holding the MR and
his/her ID.


I have under 10 low earning images with MR's there & opted to simply delete them instead of rounding up the family (which is of course who I utilize for photos) for a group MR party. But the problem is now that my account is still frozen and none of my other images are available for download and I can't get an email response from the individual who noticed this problem. I did call DT and was told nobody here can help and that someone should email me sometime "soon".

I have only a little bit of patience when it comes to all of my images being taken off the market because of a problem with abt 10-15 of over 500 images. I do have some faith that this will be resolved soon and YES, I do realize this is my fault for somehow missing the fact the DT wants something different... I do use my own generic MRs and have no problems at all other sites.

Anyone else run into this type of scenario?? Is this my punishment if you will... turning off my entire account like this?


Adobe Stock / Odd Fotolia Email??
« on: August 08, 2008, 10:12 »
Okay, I've been with Fotolia for about 6 months now and have to admit I no longer focus on them (meaning no new uploads) but today I received an email which sounds like I just submitted my new account yesterday?

I sent an email to support but that doesn't usually help me. Does this look familair to anyone? I'm not super stressed about it but it is odd?
