Image Sleuth /
« on: August 14, 2016, 13:20 »
Just come across a website using one of my images and they attributed to these guys...

I take it they are not linked to any agency?

Just migrated my info to a new mac and wondering if its that somehow or the site is down?

3 / Advice on Credentials at Shutterstock
« on: July 31, 2014, 07:12 »

I was wondering if anyone could help me with the following:

I recently took some photo's of an "airshow" these have been accepted as editorial shots at all the sites I submit to no problem.

Shutterstock have rejected them, asking for credentials. The "airshow" I took them at is a non ticketed free event that took place on (or rather over :) ) public property with no entry or exit restrictions. I was stood on a public footpath to take my pictures (The event is organised by the local council to bring visitors into the town).

Now i could understand if I was on private property or if it was a ticketed event, but this was neither. I have resubmitted with a note to the reviewer to this effect...was this the right thing to do? Still have time to delete them if I correct in my thinking...It is no different I suppose to saying I was stood on a public pavement (sidewalk for you USA folks! :) )and these planes flew past?

Symbiostock - Technical Support / Where are original Photo's Kept?
« on: February 07, 2014, 07:28 »
Hi am trying to find a picture that I don't have access to on the road,

I thought I could maybe get it from my symbio site, i have found the water marked versions but not the originals?

I thought they should be in the www/home/wp-content/uploads/year/month, but there is nothing there..?


I have a stock port of 400 - 600 pics (varies according to stocksite)

I have recently launched a website (hosted on squarespace)

Squarespace currently only do a store in the USA but i understand the underlying platform stipe is being beta tested in Europe so I am hoping I would shortly be able to add a store to my website for stock that way.

Symbiostock seems like a really good community, but I'm unsure how to proceed further? Of course it would be great to exchange links with others, to help both our SEO's and selling stock direct seems like a dream come true..any help on the next steps would be greatly appreciated.


ps is there a how to start thread somewhere i cant find?


General Stock Discussion / Help With EL
« on: February 20, 2013, 10:53 »

I'm sorry to have my first post asking for help, but I'm hoping somebody will know the answer.

I've come across a major company giving away a large hi-res copy of my image as a free wallpaper they are also letting people download a calendar version (again at full res) they also have it on the web page (and as a banner on there FB page)

I've never had an EL on this pic...can they let anyone download it without any credit to me & without buying an EL..I would have thought they would need an EL to re-distribute it..or am i just being naive and a normal license  would cover this?

any help appreciated
