Dreamstime.com / Can't delete, only disable images in Dreamstime?
« on: December 14, 2020, 13:42 »
So you can only disable an image, but not delete?
On shutterstock you can just delete, but not on dreamstime.

Adobe Stock / Did Adobe/fotolia sent out 1099s?
« on: February 15, 2019, 17:32 »
I didn't cash out, I only had $70 in the account, but I guess fotolia still send 1099s out even if you don't withdraw the money...
Is tehre a way to download?

I'm cashing out my earnings, in the past they used to transfer to paypal pretty quickly...but how long is it taking these days?

iStockPhoto.com / How to delete images from account.
« on: March 01, 2018, 19:34 »
Hi, it's been a long time since I logged into my account.
I couldn't find my contributor account but then I found out it moved to the getty site. Finally was able to log in. I just want to delete my vectors.

A friend of mine was asking, why can't this be used for commercial purposes, and I wasn't sure...

My guess is because of property release? Something about these buildings?
Is there any photo of a similar street that could be used commercialy?


this site offer their licenses with extended license for use in templates that can be used in tempaltes. Pretty cheap. I got really curious. They are based in UT

Is that a legitimate micro???



Is there any agency with a end user agreement that would allow this type of usage?

Like placing a photo of a person as a "placeholder" on a POD / Zazzle invitation, where the buyer swap for their own photo?
Like in this example:


I see a lot of shops on zazzle using photos that look like they are from microstock or public domain. But the way the licenses are so tight these days, I don't know.

Or is there any photog selling packages for this type of usage?

123RF / is 123RF Tax Report 1099 ready? I don't see it...
« on: March 01, 2017, 09:14 »
When I look I only see the 2015...
I know is ridiculous, I only made $46 there because I only downloaded a couple of images and forgot. Is already march 1st and there is nothing there...
Should I contact them to see if I"m gonna get a form or not?

Can I fit a collection of paintings / drawings in a single property release?

In the description of the property, could I just say "collection of 100 drawings as shown in Exhibit A, B, etc, and attach these extra pages with thumbnails?

I might have 500 paintings/drawings... How would do this?


123RF / How to delete images in the new Dashboard?
« on: October 21, 2016, 13:56 »
I want to delete some of my images, but can't find the place to do.
Does anyone knows?

When I first did the sync on the Adobe site it got all my information from Fotolia, including address, and tax info.
I went to look at it now, and I see my illustrations are there, but on contributgor info, only my name is there...No address, no tax form....

Do i have to fill that in, I thought it came from Fotolia?  I just don't want the 1099 to get messed up like what happened with 123 RF.

I got an email from Alamy..did anyone get?

I'm looking for a budget option  to use with vector clipart.

It has to have some color accuracy or at least that I'm able to calibrate with a pantone huey or  and I'm thinking of a Dell U2412M which seems to be an upgrade from the Dell U2415...

In the past Alamy was way down in the poll results...
This year all the sudden Alamy is almost going head to head with Shutterstock.
So does it mean people are making almost the same they make at Shutter?
What did change from past years???
 I am seeing Alamy 73, and Shutterstock 86.1.

I came across a chinese site, and saw a lot of the creativemarket cliparts and font bundles being sold there,.

I think is a site where you can open a shop, maybe like ebay, but I dont know if they auctions or just sell direct.

the name of the site is taobao.com

Despite of being in chinese, if you put the word PNG in the search box,
it will turn up loads of those creativemarket bundles, of fonts and watercolor clipart...

I spent sometime looking, sometimes you click on a product, it takes you to the shop owner page, where you find a load more of products.

So, I never heard of creativemarket selling through other sites besides their own..so I guess...is suspicious.

Hi guys....
I sent a W-9 as i live IN America...
I was waiting for the 1099 misc for tax by mail, but I looked into the account and it was there for printing...

This 1099-misc is okay, it comes from Chicago. I only made 1.44 royalties it says.

but then I look and there is a second form, wich is a 1042-S, and this 123RF has an address from Chicago, and also an address from Hong Kong...I never got a 1042 from an agency...Can anyone explain to me what is this????

Have you got one too????

Canva / Any Updates on Canva, how are you doing, vectors etc?
« on: January 18, 2016, 13:51 »
I see there isn't much being said about Canva compared to other agencies lately.

How are your uploads of cut out PNG files being accepted compared to full background images - fast or slow approvals...are they accepting vector uploads yet, or still pending?

Is anyone here contributing "layout" designs, how is that going for you?

Canva / Canva course live right now on Creativelive

Canva / Is Canva processing vectors or not yet?
« on: October 23, 2015, 08:10 »
Are they processing vectors?  or vectors are still in the "review" status?

Hi guys,
I received a request from dreamstime to sell rights to an image I only have uploaded there.....but by doing a reverse image serach I saw the image in  two sites Im not a contributor to. however these seem connected to "dreamstime", they have a "powered by dreamstime" and  links go to the dreamstime page ....so I'm wondering if that is just a sort of referral type of site, so no worries there?


Has anyone got an invitation to try it out?

I don't know what this is going to be mean for contributors...I was just curious to see...

However it is a subscription monthly plan and cost for each head on  a team... $12.95
or yearly  commitment is down to $9.95 per month.

I was about to buy something with paypal...but wasn't working, and ended up in a "Internal server error" page for me.

...https://downdetector.com/status/paypal/map/ have an outage map, not sure how that works, but people are reporting via facebook, and I'm following...  :-[ :-[It has been down for me for a long while..Isn't that frustating??? I wonder what's happenign...

Here is the map, if you care to look.


HI I was reading this on a blog of a lady who has licensed her art for many years....and she wrote a post about the Oprhan Works bill.
and also there is mention of this on the blog of Brad Hollander, on the Drawger blog...

I posted both links bellow...I don't know...Is this seroius? Have you guys heard about this issue?



It seems older content sells more, and new content takes forever to start selling...

But is there any place where the search benefits new content and the new stuff sells more than the old?

123RF / Are there any illustrators on 123RF?
« on: May 07, 2015, 16:00 »
Any illustrators on 123RF?
How do you do there compared to Istock?
Do vectors and illustrations sell better than photos there?
I have a contributor account, only sent a handful of files, and kept wondering if I should send in more.
