General Stock Discussion / How Long In Microstock ?
« on: May 22, 2014, 09:27 »
This poll may help to show how many have taken up Microstock recently.

General Stock Discussion / Email from Pocketstock
« on: November 02, 2012, 05:42 »
Just got an email this morning looking for artists to contribute with a special rate on royalties offered.
Had a quick look into their site but the quality of images doesn't seem all that great.
Any takers on this?

Shutterstock.com / 'On Demand' (decline in downloads)
« on: January 02, 2012, 05:53 »
My 'On Demand downloads' at SS have really declined in the last 2 months.
Has anyone had a similar experience?

General Stock Discussion / Rejection Reasons (Closed)

DepositPhotos / Is DepositPhotos looking good?
« on: February 04, 2010, 04:13 »
What do you think? - is it looking good for this site to make it.
I see a lot of people uploading there and also a number of sales visible on the site.
Have signed up. Is it worth uploading?

General Stock Discussion / Shutterpoint Invitation
« on: October 07, 2009, 14:02 »
I just received an invitation to re join SP.
Anyone else get same?
As a former member they are offering 15% off membership.

May not be everyone's 'cup of tea' to pay for space.
Will check out the site anyway and see what is happening.

General Stock Discussion / Image Effects - Do They sell?
« on: September 07, 2009, 14:34 »
Do you submit photos with image effects and do they sell for you?
Which sites are the best bet for submitting to?

New Sites - General / The Great Silence (Pixamba)
« on: September 05, 2009, 07:47 »
Has anybody noticed the great silence coming from Pixamba?
Not a peep here on MSG and still no Forum on site.

General Stock Discussion / BigStock Raises Payout To $50
« on: August 19, 2009, 14:50 »
Iv'e just learned that BigStock has raised their payout to $50.
Well, at the moment that is a bit of a backstep for me as my sales there are not all that great.
What do you think?

General Stock Discussion / Best Designed Site (Poll)
« on: July 31, 2009, 08:43 »
Which of the top micro sites do you think has the best design?
Not talking here about how easy it is to upload etc. but just the general and best  overall appearance and one you find most pleasing.
Also, if you have any comments on how certain sites could be improved.

My vote goes to DT.

General Stock Discussion / "Stars In Your Stable" (Poll)
« on: July 07, 2009, 18:03 »
How many real "star" images have you got on Microstock?
I mean, images that continue to sell regualrly and far outshine others in your folio.

For me - I can say 2 and I think I have one in the making.

General Stock Discussion / Donating Free Images (Poll)
« on: July 07, 2009, 17:34 »
For those who have donated free images to sites - have you thought it to be beneficial  to your sales or a negative move by giving away your work for free.
Let's have you vote!

Does it help in any way, do you think. Making posts on forums such as "Show us your newest", "your latest download", "best selling image" etc.

So many seem to submit to these threads. Just wondering of your opinion  - if the is a plus or even minus to contributing to such threads.

General Stock Discussion / Active Forum = Active Sales?
« on: July 07, 2009, 15:18 »
Would you go along with "Active Forum = Active Sales" when it comes to Microstock sites, meaning if the site's forum is active it means more downloads for the contributor.
From my observations around, it looks that way anyway!

New Sites - General / Pixamba - Please keep us informed!
« on: July 04, 2009, 06:57 »
Hi David and all at Pixamba.
I do realise that you are busy getting the site up and running, but it would be nice, specially for those who have signed up to keep us informed of developments as we go along.
It would be good to hear when the forum will be open,maybe a few words about membership, sales, sales strategy etc.
So many other sites have opened up, got submissions and just left contributors hanging - checking in occasionally to find "zero" sales and eventually closing their account.

I believe also that keeping your members regularly informed will sustain interest and that they will continue to upload.

General Stock Discussion / How about PhotoSociety ?
« on: June 19, 2009, 03:22 »
Is anyone here contributing to PS or selling any material there?
One thing I have noticed is that the forum is a bit lifeless!


General Stock Discussion / "Generating Ideas"
« on: May 17, 2009, 15:47 »
An excellent post over on Microstock Diaries.
Should be of help to many.

Well, I don't get many of them selling and it's hard enough getting them processed to a decent level and accepted, but I sold one today on FT - a scanned 35mm trannie taken on Fuji Sensia.

How is everyone else getting on with their scans?

Most contributors are probably aware by now about the recent request from SS for completed tax forms.

What I'm wondering is - has anyone heard from any of the other agencies.
For me, it has just been SS.

Yaymicro / "YAY Goes Green"
« on: January 21, 2009, 14:53 »
I see over on the right hand side that YAY now has a green arrow.
Is this new status reflected by increasing sales for anyone?

Me - I'm stuck on Zero ( a long time)!

General Stock Discussion / Picture Nation - UK bias?
« on: January 19, 2009, 04:29 »
Looking at PN, the agency leans heavily towards images taken in the UK.
May not suit international contributors.


General Stock Discussion / Shutter Village ??
« on: January 17, 2009, 18:19 »
Has anyone checked in on this one?
It's been around since 2007 it seems and was previously known as Celtic Images
Unusually, it lists number of buyers - also photographers and number of views on images.


Shutterstock.com / Shutterstock 1099 Tax Form
« on: January 16, 2009, 04:55 »
As someone living in the Euro zone, can you tell me if I have to complete this form as recently requested by SS.

General Stock Discussion / StockRiot Closes
« on: January 11, 2009, 12:05 »
Just in case you may have not seen it over in the other thread - this is the latest one to fold.

Dear StockRiot Contributors,

It is with great disappointment that we have decided to take StockRiot offline, effective immediately. Due to the state of the economy, we feel that this is not the right time to attempt our long-planned advertising campaign. Therefore, after much thought we are closing our doors with the hope that we may resurrect StockRiot when the economy is more forgiving.

We thank you for your time and contributions. All accounts will be settled via paypal before January. 31, 2009. If money is owed to you and you have not received your payment by this date, please email us to ensure that we have your correct information.

Our sincerest thanks for all your comments, suggestions and support.
The StockRiot team.
