Adobe Stock / Creative Cloud bonus
« on: December 18, 2019, 20:21 »
So I received an email that I had more than 300 images accepted this year, so I was given a free 12-month membership to Creative Cloud Photography. That is very nice, but I am on Linux/Ubuntu and have been using the Gimp for my images for many years. I was going to download Photoshop to see if I can get it to work with Wine, but the download page does not let me download it and gives me a "not compatible" message. Is anybody using Adobe apps on Linux?

New Sites - General / Photokore sold to Getty?
« on: December 11, 2015, 01:21 »
I had some images on photokore. Now I get an email that my images are on , a Korean sub site. Sure enough my images are being sold there. The site is all in Korean so I have no idea how to log in, etc. Anybody know what's going on?

Especially in the case of DT a lowering of the minimum threshold is long overdue. Do you think with SS taking the lead the other two agencies will wake up?

123RF / 123rf advertises on buses in Taiwan
« on: April 06, 2013, 07:10 »
Driving around in Kaohsiung I was surprised to see city buses with 123rf advertising their images. Never seen stock photo sites advertised this way. Hope it works.This is just a screen grab from my dashboard camera.

Selling Stock Direct / jalbum pro anyone?
« on: January 15, 2013, 21:19 »
I was wondering if anybody has tried jalbum with the pro license for selling stock directly. According to their web site the pro license ($99) provides

"Shopping cart integration selling images made easy

With the Pro License you will have access to our professional skin features with shopping cart integration. Our most popular skin Turtle includes full integration for Paypal, Google Checkout and Fotomoto (a full service for selling prints (canvas, postcards etc) of your digital photos/images)."

I stumbled across this microstock site called . Is anybody submitting there?

Pixmac / Pixmac Site Problem?
« on: February 24, 2012, 22:00 »
I have been trying to access the last few days but the site only displays in text mode, I tried Firefox, IE, Opera, but it is the same in each browser. Everything else works ok on my system. Does anybody else have this problem?

123RF / New feature on 123rf? What's this?
« on: June 25, 2011, 03:36 »
I submitted some images to 123rf today and next to each new file there is a check box, next to it, it says

Consider for inclusion to 123RF Editorial if rejected.

The box is checked by default. Never saw that before, I searched the FAQ and the blog but cannot find anything about this. I am not sure what it means. Does anyone know?

Print on Demand Forum / greetingcarduniverse anyone?
« on: December 03, 2010, 03:46 »
Is anybody presently active there? The last comment when searched is from about two years ago. Does anybody have any update if it is worth the time. Thanks!

New Sites - General / Three months with Clustershot Pro
« on: May 03, 2010, 18:15 »
I started in February, 2000 images online, 500 visitors, 800 pageviews, 0 sales.

How are other folks doing?

New Sites - General / New Israeli Microstock Site
« on: April 20, 2010, 02:09 »

In English and Hebrew

"Make big bucks from those dusting image folders in your computer"

Has anybody checked it out yet?

I noticed that istock seems to allow public domain images in unmodified form. Maybe I'm wrong but it looks like it to me. Just do a search for "Engraved Image" and you will see lots of images of old engravings. That's the first time I have seen something like that. So far I have only known of the Nasa images that have to be part of a design.

General Stock Discussion / Zooomr Marketplace anyone?
« on: December 12, 2008, 08:41 »
Has anyone tried selling images on Zooomr Marketplace? I noticed you can set your own prices but there is very little information on how it actually works. Zooomr seems to keep 10 or 20%.

15 / Is Snapvillage hibernating?
« on: November 30, 2008, 03:03 »
SV showed some encouraging signs of life a few months back. For the last month or two it seems to be fading away. My sales are evaporating and in the midst of the Christmas season they show the same worn out images on the home page. Dried leaves on a cloth line? They must be dry by now. Has SV given up? Or are they just hibernating? What's your take?

16 / Getting Payment from Albumo?!
« on: September 30, 2008, 18:12 »
I finally reached minimum payment amount at Albumo. Requested payment on September 13. Sent several messages to support. No reply. So far my payment is still "pending". Has anyone got paid there recently? How long does it usually take?

17 / SV -- please remember to pay us!
« on: September 15, 2008, 03:45 »
Just a friendly reminder after last month's problems. The 15th is coming around again, so please don't forget to send us that little green stuff. Thanks!

18 / Has Snapvillage paid you?
« on: July 21, 2008, 20:28 »
Has anyone received payments from SV recently? I am still waiting for my May payment (yes, I was over 10.-U$). According to their FAQ they are supposed to pay you 45 days after the end of the month, that would be July 15th. Sent email using their contact form, but no reply. Any advice?
