Illustration - General / Purchasing new equipment
« on: September 09, 2021, 08:56 »
Im planning to purchase a new illustration/drawing tablet to create more illustration work. I have an old Wacom intuis that doesnt allow me to draw directly onto a screen, its about 15 years old. Id like to be able to draw directly in the tablet and create high resolution graphics for sale. What do you recommend? Im worried Ill get something and immediately want to upgrade if I dont get high quality.

Envato / Help: My 1099 doesn't make sense

I'm working on my 2019 Taxes and even after adding up all the taxes and fees that are shown on my Envato Elements and My PhotoDune account the numbers just don't add up.

I can't find anywhere in my Envato Elements Author Account to see info on fees.

I can go to a "Statement" page which is available on my Photodune account author login page, but that doesn't seem to exist in Envato Elements. Is there a secret to this???

I just want to have documentation of my total fees and expenses so I can write the off without getting audited, and I absolutely want to write them off....

Has anyone else who sells in elements had a month without a contributor bonus? My account shows no bonus this month and Im wondering what causes it? Am I below a certain sales threshold?

General Stock Discussion / New Online Sales Tax Laws US

I apologize if this has already been discussed. I wasn't able to find it if it has been. Recently in Wayfair vs South Dakota a court ruling declared that small businesses will now need to collect sales tax from internet sales via the purchaser.

You can read more about that here:


I'm a bit confused about how this will affect micro stock sellers. Can anyone weigh in on this? I can't even begin to image how to report my sales when I do taxes and sort each small .33 cent sale by location. How will this work? Do we even qualify???

This seller,  https://www.shutterstock.com/g/maryam%20sadeghian has three of my top selling jewelry images listed for sale. The photos have either been flipped horizontally or the colors are slightly tweaked. Please check to see if your images are also in this portfolio for sale.

Canva / No response from Canva

I sell stock photos on all of the major sites with about 500 imageson each. I do pretty well. I have applied as a contributor on Canva three separate times with no response, no rejection, acceptance etc. Is this normal? Even an email to let me know why and if I didnt make the cut would be appreciated. The nothing seems completely unprofessional for a thriving business.

In the past couple of years I have made note of some of my images that were used for large well known national publications. Since the image was purchase from a stock agency I as an artist was not given credit within the publications, however, my images were still published. I would love to show that my work was published either online or in print by these amazing publications. Do you think that I can put on my website and resume that my work was published by XYZ magazine? I know they didn't contact me directly or curate the images, but they are my photographs...what are your thoughts on this?
