when I go shooting wildlife (deer especially) I also like to shoot some video. Does anybody know, is there such thing as a 3 axis video stabilizer os something similar that you can put for example between tripod and camera so it would reduce camera shakes or any similar equipment.

Like this video  it's pretty shaky, I used only tripod andlens stabilization, I'd like to reduce those shakes.

....very good month compared to the at least last 6 months....

3 / Downloads for April avaliable
« on: May 16, 2019, 09:31 »
Number of downloads for April avaliable. I was expecting one of worst months, but had the best month with downloads, but I don't know where those dl-s are coming from. For example one image has 53 downloads!, and I'm pretty sure that daily statistics didn't show them. It's probably 53x 0,0001 cents. I'm really crurious about the earnings now.

4 / Question about "clear"
« on: April 19, 2019, 12:07 »
So, when I go to main contributor dashboard on alamy, and then to "Download sales report" and then select "Date of invoice" and current date, it shows that 3 payments have been cleared on 17th April. (image). But if I choose "Date of Invoice" and current date, it only shows one (the one that was purchased on 29.10.2018) payment cleared. Also, my balance shows only 1$. Is this correct or is this some glitch or sth? Or I just don't understand how this cleared stuff works?

Pond5 / Pomd5 payout
« on: April 04, 2019, 11:40 »
Can someone tell me, what's the payout limit on Pond5 and if it's automated process? I know it was 25 or 28$. I have 40$ on my account and it's still there. so I'm not sure, do I have to request payour, or did they raise payout limit or it just hasn't been cleared yet?

Adobe Stock / Increase in EU sales
« on: January 25, 2019, 09:31 »
Anyone else noticed increase in EU (non-US) sales? Like, this month I had a bunch of those 0.99 (and also other non-US sales, subs, 0.66, etc..) sales, probably more then last few months combined?

8 / Model release
« on: January 21, 2019, 13:31 »
I've never uploaded anything which would need model release so I'm new to this. I found this model release from alamy

Honestly, I don't understand how this works.
Does this has to be printed, signed, scanned/photographed and then uploaded again.
Does all releases requeire photo of a model (in my photos only hands are visible) Do I have to put photo of a model even if only hands are visible?
Do all releases require photo of a model?

Worst month of the 2018 for me.

11 / Same file sold twice in the same day for same amount
« on: November 30, 2018, 11:31 »
Does anybody know, what that means? Why is same file sold twice in the same day for the same amount? Never had this before.

12 / Sale not reported (yet)
« on: October 17, 2018, 13:09 »
I accidentally found this photo of mine.

It says Profimedia/Alamy. This is like distributor sale, right? The article is from January the 10th, and this sale hasn't been reported yet. Is it possible that it takes so long?

13 / Zoom question
« on: September 24, 2018, 11:15 »
I'm pretty sure a new zoom showed up today in Alamy Measures/Total zooms. But when I select date range for a few days back, it says zero zooms. Anyone else having issues like that?

General - Stock Video / Re-uploadin re-processed video
« on: September 06, 2018, 09:58 »
Do you think it's worth re-uploading already accepted videos, with better post-processing. I'm talking especially about files that haven't sold before so their search placement won't be hurt.

Here's one example before-after. I know that stauration in the second example is maybe a little bit over-done, but you get the idea.

15 / Edit title
« on: August 22, 2018, 11:00 »
Is it possible to change the title after image was accepted. I know it was possible before, but I can't figure it now with new interface?

16 / Alamy refund
« on: August 21, 2018, 11:44 »
About one month ago I hade a sale
18 May 2018   Royalty-free   Usage: Editorial web and social media, single article  $ 15.73

And today I got this
(21 August 2018)   Royalty-free   Sale Refunded   $ -15.73

Royalty-free   Usage: Editorial web and social media, single article  $ 14.79

Does that means that first sale was refunded and then bought again for 14,79$. Because refunding sale to buy it 1$ cheaper doesn't make any sense. Also, this photo was already published on site, I found it month ago on some web page.

17 / July stats in
« on: August 17, 2018, 14:39 »
Good month for me, better than June. Surprised actually, because those content statistics weren't looking good.

18 / Refunds on DT
« on: July 27, 2018, 08:51 »
Is it possible to se refunds on DT? I'm pretty sure, I have 4$ less on my balance then yesterday.

Adobe Stock / Unreported sales?
« on: June 27, 2018, 08:10 »
So, I have Google alers turned on for my Stock name and today I got message from Google. Went to check, and saw this article

Date for the article is 26.06.2018 (yesterday) and I haven't had any sales reported for this image in the last week. In fact, the only time, this image was purchased from Fotolia this year was 27.04.2018. What do you think? Did te buyer re-used this image after so long time or is there a glitch in reporting? Thoughts?

20 / January earnings
« on: February 16, 2018, 14:40 »
Kind of early this month, page says it's importing new data.

22 / Earning on main page not updating
« on: November 26, 2017, 05:20 »
I was waiting if someone else will come up with this, but nothing. So, had a sub sale yesterday and my overall earnings on the main page haven't increased for that amount, but if I go to "Earnings summary" table, the overall amount is correct. Anyone else experiencing same thing?

23 / Quick sale opportunity
« on: November 10, 2017, 12:38 »
I got this message pop up while on DT contributor page. Is this legit? Because most of these places are more or less small villages.

I came across one on Adobe, that I just couldn't resist not to show it, because I just can't believe this was accepted. And it's actually on the first page for "Relevance" for it's main keyword.  Check out the noise.

I just checked keywords. Animal in the photos is deer, keywords include impala, giraffe, antelope....

Adobe Stock / 25.08 credits for EL
« on: September 12, 2017, 10:33 »
So,  I had EL sale today at Fotolia. All my prices for ELs are 100 credits. As I am silver contributor I get 25% of a credit sale. So how is it possible, to get 25,08 credits out of 100 with 25% royalties? Not that I'm complaining, just curious.
