Adobe Stock / What is up with Fotolia??
« on: April 10, 2008, 04:04 »
Seriously, what the heck is up with Fotolia, I am this clsoe to taking down everything I have there, I don't make much with them anyhow, they are at the bottom of the pot, but to have my recent submissions thrown back at me with some generic 'type pf photograph' rejection, while BS, SS, and DT virtually accepted all 50. I had all but 2 of my images rejected. What is going on over there??

Well here is a new one, just received this email.....

Hi John,


We came across your site and wanted to pass on our new stock photography website, (


Our site allows photographers to upload their photos and earn a commission from each sale. The site has not yet been publicly released as we are currently working to build our database of images. Our goal is to offer the highest quality images to designers..


For a limited time we are offering original content providers a 40% commission on your images valid for life. If you have colleagues who are interested in the stock photography market, we would appreciate you would pass the message on.


For information on what type of images we are currently seeking please visit:


If you have a large number of images to upload and would prefer to send in a CD of your images, please let us know. At this immediate time FTP and reading IPTC data is currently unavailable. This IS something we are working hard to complete before the end of December.


We have banners that are also available to link directly to your content on our site in our affiliate area.


We look forward to hearing from you.


Warmest regards,


Michael Iwasaki

Business Development Advisor

General Stock Discussion / A question on keywords
« on: November 13, 2006, 07:57 »
Ok all after the argument and issues I have had with Fotolia with my rejection on images that were said to have images (which they obviously did not.....thread here ( I was wondering if it might in fact be my keywords. What are the restrictions when it comes to keywords. We'll use this shot as an example which they rejected for . I used the words Chevy, Chevrolet and Impala for keywords in this. Is this actually allowed?
  Thanks all!

Adobe Stock / Confused on rejection letter from Fotolia
« on: October 31, 2006, 06:23 »
Maybe some of you here could chime in on this as I am getting NO help on the legal board over there. My biggest selling shots on all the sites I belong to have been my photos of Hotrods. However, it seems that fro some reason, Fotolia doesn't like them, and I keep getting declined on "Intellectual/Industrial Property issues" even though most are hard crops with NO identifiable logos in them! Heck I find it ironic that they actually accepted this one here (1 of 2 they have accepted outta the 200 some odd I have uploaded) but they declined this shot here & this shot here yesterday  Needless to say I am getting VERY frustrated with Fotolia as they are the only site giving me problems with these shots. I posted this on the forums there  but it still is unanswered. Thoughts? Suggestions?

New Sites - General / Houser Stock Photos
« on: September 17, 2006, 17:16 »
Just happened upon this while browsing Flickr
Looks like a new up and coming company and so far I really liek what they are saying.

"So that's when I came up with the idea for Houser Stock Photo - your photos, your prices, your customers. Oh yeah... one more important feature - YOUR money. Rather than pay you pennies on the dollar for each photo sold, you keep up to 80% of the price, which once again... YOU set. And if you're not just interested in selling stock photography, but also prints? I've got that covered too, with direct shipping to the buyer. Want to throw a mat around the print? Yep - you've guessed it. I've got that covered too."
