Off Topic / Trump in Putin's pocket
« on: July 16, 2018, 12:27 »
Trump backing putin basically sayin our intelligence services have it wrong, wow, just wow. suggesting the russians should be part of the muller investigation. come again.

thats serious. lukcily this isnt the late 40s for mr trump,.

Putin has trump in his back pocket.

15. Would you be interested in a voluntary option to contribute a small portion of your Pond5 revenue to a fund that supports the next generation of young up-and-coming filmmakers? (your choice of % with a matching donation of up to 10% from Pond5)

asking to donate money of my earnings to help others create (competing) films. leaves a weird taste in my mouth. let them work for it, like we all did

has to be the weirdest request i have had from an agency. they really have no shame do they.?

Shutterstock.com / June algorithm change?
« on: June 13, 2017, 00:45 »
ss for me has no rhyme or reason, from the first day of june my sales have been back to normal and then some, the number of dls is still low, but the number of ELs and big SODs have dramatically increased. i have already made what i normally would make in a normal month and we are not even half way. if this continues i will double my BME. which is just plain weird. not complaining at all, just think they must have flicked a switch again

« on: May 09, 2017, 17:26 »
i am afraid i wont exceed 10 downloads today. its that bad

not sure how to tackle this but i guess uploading more isnt going to help much.

the pie is shared amongst to many people, ss is doing great, but it my motivation is gone.

Pond5 / The first Pond5 Global Partner is here: Adobe
« on: April 24, 2017, 16:31 »
just got this. i guess that means Adobe goes video, bye bye shutterstock

Were reaching out with some very exciting news.
As part of our previously announced Global Partner Program, Pond5 has officially signed eight hand-selected distribution partners, including a new partnership with Adobe, the industry-leader in creative desktop and mobile apps.
Adobe is the world leader in creative media-production and editing software, including Photoshop and Premiere Pro, so were thrilled to be partnering with them and creating tons of new opportunities for you, our Artists!

What do these partnerships mean for you?
One upload, multiple benefits
By participating in the Global Partner Program, Pond5 Artists will receive royalties comparable to selling directly through our partners, while also benefiting from unique sales and marketing opportunities, premium pricing, and the ability to earn additional royalties from enhanced license sales all through one upload to Pond5. As always, Pond5 artists will receive 50 percent of all revenue Pond5 generates from these collaborations.

Exposure to new buyers
The Global Partner Program provides access to local expertise in markets around the world, allowing our Artists to reach exponentially more potential buyers than ever before. Now, with one upload to Pond5, your content can also be seamlessly downloaded by a whole new market of creators, including everyone using Adobe Creative Cloud.

What do you have to do?
If you are opted-in to our Global Partner Program, there is nothing additional you need to do to take advantage of this partnership. If you already contribute content to Adobe Stock or one of our other resellers, no action is needed, as they will be working to prevent duplication on their sites.
For more information about the Global Partner Program, please review the FAQ, and contact [email protected] with any additional questions.

All the best,
The Pond5 Team


anyone else seeing this?

lately i have 3 4 5 sales of the same images in a very short time, almost instantaneously

some images which never sold, sold 3 times in a minute or less

could it be that there is a bug or a change in how buyers purchases images from shutterstock that allows for a multi purchase by mistake?

Shutterstock.com / Review times longer than normal

not sure what is happening, submitted some images yesterday, but instead of the 30 second review, it took about 6 hours. thats unacceptable !

Software / preferred image viewer
« on: July 16, 2016, 15:27 »
i work with lightroom, dpp and photoshop and always used MS picture manager to quickly view photos at 100% because  of its simple UI however, since upgrading to w10, picture manager is no longer reading the exif orientation tag correctly, basically ignoring it.

i am looking for a small, simple program with easy UI to quickly do the same as before, LR, DPP are too big and bulky for that simple task, looking at Faststone image viewer, ACDsee, irfanview, etc. which program is a good alternative and not too expensive. ive used faststone and acdsee before, and liked them, just wondering if there is something better
