Shutterstock.com / No payment mail yet?
« on: September 07, 2021, 02:13 »
Did anyone get the "Your latest payment has been calculated" mail for August? Usually it comes between 2nd and 5th...
Or has anyone actually received August payment?

Canva / Negative earnings anyone
« on: June 09, 2020, 07:30 »
I have a negative amount under "unpaid earnings". Anyone else? Any insight why that might be* (emailed them, but no reply yet)

*No, I haven't deleted images so they could be taking back the doubled earnings from last month

123RF / 123RF payment via SKRILL
« on: April 17, 2020, 07:44 »
Anyone already got it? I saw in the other thread that payoneer payments have been sent, but what about Skrill? Usually I get it on the 13th/14th.

Canva / Sales not registered....
« on: January 23, 2020, 11:48 »
Since January 17 there are no sales registered in my account. Seems impossible, usually I have 20 or more sales a day. Everything else works.
Has anyone checked their sales these days and similar experience or is it just me?

Shutterstock.com / Earnings summary glitch?
« on: May 12, 2019, 05:19 »
There seems something broken either on shutter's accounting side or on the customer side; usually I have 5-20 downloads on Saturdays and Sundays, but the last download shown in my account is from Saturday morning and nothing since then that is most unlikely to be correct,  as it hasn't happened for about 10 years now.
Anybody else with a huge port (mine is 10k files) noticing the same?

Canva / Are Canva payments for February late...
« on: March 12, 2019, 11:40 »
... or is it just me?

Adobe Stock / Adobe Stock took my money away
« on: February 15, 2019, 03:12 »
Got a mail from AS today saying they miscalculated my royalties (no further explanation of which files or days). Yesterday I had balance of $96, today it's $-12 (yes, negative).
Anyone else?

Adobe Stock / Shutterstock thief also has portfolio on Adobe Stock
« on: February 06, 2019, 09:20 »
This https://www.shutterstock.com/g/MuniYogeshwaran suspect thief from SS also has a portfolio on AS here https://stock.adobe.com/de/contributor/207618605/yogesh
The portfolio is not completely identical, but there are some examples of definite copyright infringement:

is taken from here https://pixabay.com/de/indien-taj-mahal-agra-mausoleum-1748445/

This https://stock.adobe.com/de/images/great-wall-of-china-against-the-sky-image/245869598?prev_url=detail is basically this http://www.hiddenworldusa.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/20090529_Great_Wall_8125.jpg with a modified sky

This jpeg-image https://stock.adobe.com/de/images/creative-brain/197444777 is based  on this vector https://www.freepik.com/free-vector/artificial-brain_757950.htm (plus bulb icon)

There are surely more stolen images but since he's quite good at photoshop and always changes sky and mood the originals are very hard to find.

Someone (Mat?) from AS might want to look into this...

Adobe Stock / Unusual activity at Adobe/Fotolia - anyone else?
« on: November 18, 2016, 03:07 »
Sold more than 200 files within slightly more than one hour tonight, all subs, mostly old files (some unsold until today), almost all isolated on white - a lot of office and education related files (pencils, folders) and picture frames. About 100 were vectors, mostly flat design icon sets.  Strange, isn't it? Hope I won't find them on a pirate site tomorrow.

As a side effect my FT weekly rank went up from 1,060 to 249 (which can't be bad).

Anyone with similar experiences?

Any experiences, especially someone from Germany?
I wanted to avoid Skrill, they raised their prices (again), but haven't got the September cheque yet

iStockPhoto.com / Royalty adjustment
« on: February 12, 2016, 06:00 »
Got an email today listing 55 of my images (all travel, mostly Northern Germany and Canary Islands) that
were recently licensed to an iStock customer in a transaction that did not occur through the website
Royalty was $38.50 (which equates to $0.7 per DL).
Anyone got similar emails or knows what kind of transaction that is, what client and why the royalty is so low?

Hi all,
looking for my images in use I found a site that attributes all stock images with Creative Commons (CC BY-NC-SA 4.0). I guess they have downloaded legally from fotolia or shutterstock.


There's a dozen or more others from my portfolio and I can imagine that a lot of other MSG members are affected.
I already reported misuse to the site owner via contact form, but that might not be enough, especially since I'm not sure from which agency the images are bought.

Any idea what to do?

Illustration - General / Anyone having icons on thenounproject.com?
« on: September 13, 2015, 06:07 »
...and having sales (and how many per icons online?)

iStockPhoto.com / Stupid file deactivation by istock
« on: April 16, 2015, 02:12 »
I've had some files deactivated for hilarious reasons, but this one tops them all (showing the file from FT, because on IS of course no longer visible):

Original description: Englischer Garten, Munich's largest park with the Monopteros temple on a hill

Deactivation reason "The content is not suitable for our broad Royalty Free license; the reason given was: This content is not suitable for the Royalty Free Licensing model. Please see: http://wiki.gettyimages.com/castles-in-europe/"

Besides that we have Freedom of Panorama in Germany I can't spot the castle in the image. Can you?
