Adobe Stock / Fotolia V3 is now online
« on: August 18, 2011, 01:30 »
Hi, I just noticed that Fotolia V3 is now online. Hopefully everything will be working like clockwork

iStockPhoto.com / iStock deleted my ticket with no answer
« on: June 18, 2010, 14:12 »
Hi, I don't know if you noticed that but iStock has some problems with credits - if you click on Support page you'll see this text

"Please note: You may not receive your credits immediately and there may be a 15 - 20 minute delay.
If after that time you have NOT received your credits, please contact support."

Well, after 20 hours I still haven't received my credits, so I sent them a ticket. After another 8 hours the ticket was deleted with no answer and no $$ added. Do they do this often? Thank you for your reply

General Stock Discussion / A page you might find very useful
« on: July 07, 2009, 01:27 »
Hi, I made myself a page with all links for my microstock activities. It's very simple and efficient (for me at least  ;) ) It's in my favourites, and I just thought that some of you might like it as well.

There are links to main microstock agencies, keywording tools, this microstockgroup forum and few photo forums


*there are few links which have my refferal number in it, but it doesn't have any impact on page's performance.

PS: If you like it and if you have any suggestions to improve it, let me know.

You know the feeling. You take a picture, process it in Photoshop, upload it, fill all the titles, description and keywords, find suitable category and than your picture is rejected because of something silly like (this is not what our buyers are looking for, or we already have enough similar photographs). All your time and energy was just wasted.

Not necessarily. There is a website called Public Domain Pictures.net which allows you to submit your pictures and earn money from them by referring people to stock photo websites.

If you submit your picture under public domain license:

- the pictures are resized to 1280 x XXX pixels (so if visitors require a higher resolution, they could contact you and you can sell them high-res versions)
- keywords from the image title perform a search on Fotolia and thanks to their API they show search results with your Fotolia number - you get affiliates
- you can also let visitors to donate you money for your pictures thanks to PayPal donation button
- you can also promote your Fotolia portfolio and your website (if you don't have one, you could fill it with a link to another stock photo website)

Here is an example of a page where the girl promotes her portfolio on Fotolia with PayPal button and pictures at the bottom include her Fotolia number.


Statistics show that in average every 10 pictures refer 1 paying member to Fotolia per month.

So if you're interested, feel free to give it a try on http://www.publicdomainpictures.net

Please don't trash this post unless you try it. It's a great service and for example this girl doesn't submit almost any pictures to Fotolia any more as she's just happy with earning she makes by referring new members.
