Image Sleuth / stolen vectors on cashmyjunkfiles.com
« on: December 03, 2009, 13:50 »
hi, I just found two of my images for sale by someone else (from sri lanka) at a site I've never heard of before.

stolen: http://www.cashmyjunkfiles.com/catalog/7049.html (btw, badly screwed up color profile)

original: http://www.dreamstime.com/cellphone015icons3-image1303273
stolen: http://www.cashmyjunkfiles.com/catalog/6967.html (again, screwed up colors)

thief's gallery: http://www.cashmyjunkfiles.com/portfolio/vectorman.html
you may want to check if there is any of your vectors there, i know i've seen this one on ss for example: http://www.cashmyjunkfiles.com/catalog/7009.html

has anyone heard of that site? is it legit?
any ideas? (besides contacting them)

ps. this is the first time i found an image of mine stolen... I should be happy i'm worth stealing from, rigth? ::)

Adobe Stock / Changes on vectors? (prices and formats)
« on: March 18, 2009, 19:08 »

after reading in other thread (link) that Fotolia now accepts EPS and AI files only (instead of svg), i went to FT to (try to) find how the eps should be uploaded (eps only, or eps+preview a la ss, or eps+full size jpg, etc): I couldn't find any info on this, but i noted that their website says vector files starting at 4 credits, and having different prices according to complexity ( 4-6-8 credits for non exclusive files, white to gold ranking)

(from: http://www.fotolia.com/Info/Contents/Vectors)

(from: http://www.fotolia.com/Info/Contributors)

i haven't found any info on what's basic, detailed or elaborate, but here it says "Vectors shall be creative with a lot of details, and the work has to be clean (simple vectors without any creative detail will be refused)" so i guess basic is not really that basic...  ;D (or they are contradicting themselves)...

i checked my gallery and all vectors are still at 8 credits. i haven't seen any description on the complexity levels, but mine are most likely not "elaborate", so I guess the change hasn't come into effect yet or the pages i'm seeing were posted before time...

so.. basic math: instead of the 0.37 x 7 credits (=$2.59) i was making a month ago for a vector, now i will be making:
 0.34 x 4 (=$1.36) for a "basic" vector, or
 0.34 x 6 (=$2.04) for a "detailed" vector, or
 0.34 x 8 (=$2.72) for an "elaborate" vector.

on the other hand, the EL prices for vectors are going up (from 20 to 40 credits for base level, and 100 to 160 credits for silver ranking).

does anyone found more info than this?
will we receive any communication from FT on this changes this time?
