Off Topic / Stumbled upon Gurushots
« on: January 05, 2018, 18:02 »
Have anyone tried this site/app?
It looks interesting to me but I'm thinking my pictures are open to a little bigger risk of getting used without paying. And on the other hand there are usualy used completly other type of photos that usualy don't sell very vell, since stock photo and artistic photos are (usualy) two different things.

Anyone tried this? Anyone have to say anything about this? Good? Bad?

General Stock Discussion / Paypal account, business or regural?
« on: October 02, 2017, 10:42 »
Sorry for maybe dumb question but I'm making paypal account for the first time and don't know do I need business account for getting paid from stock sites? And what are differences betwen business and regural account?

3 / Keyword change
« on: July 27, 2017, 09:17 »
Is it possible to change keywords on pictures after they are accepted?
I wouldn't like to upload double images and need new keywords on some images.

Nikon / Nikon D3300 with AF-S 18-105 lense for first DSLR?
« on: July 18, 2017, 18:13 »
Hi guys,
I have been thinking to buy my first DSLR camera and to start some serious work with stock business, but for now I have limited buget. What do you think about Nikon D3300 with AF 18-105 lense for start? What can you tell me about camera, since I have never tried to take a picture with it? How does it work inside the house (light just from lightbulb), or in lower light (cloudy weather) outside? And what kind of pictures are best with it and are the worst?
Or if you are not familiar with it, what would be your best choice in that price range?

Thanks in advance.

5 / ESP Getty Images log in question
« on: April 19, 2017, 07:20 »
First of all I have to say sorry for asking questions that are probably already answered on this forum but I haven't been active for last half year since I started college in different city and don't have a lot of free time or internet time, and don't have too much time to read pages and pages. So sorry guys.

The main question is: Why can't I get log in on Getty site? I could in the beginning, and it is impossible that  I forgot the password since it was remembered on my computer. Also I mailed Getty, I think more than a month ago, and I still haven't got any answer. At first I could see my earnings on Account Management when I couldn't sign in on ESP part, but now I can't see any part of my account.

And until I can't log in on Getty site, is there any way to see my earnings and downloads on iStock site?

6 / $0.18 sale on Thinkstock?!
« on: September 26, 2016, 07:54 »
I didn't know they can go that low on Thinkstock, I had lower sales but only on Getty. Or could that be some kind of a bug?

7 / More credit sales than sub sales on iStock?
« on: September 12, 2016, 15:50 »
I had a wierd month on iStock, I know I'm new here and don't now anything yet about oscilations but if they finished reporting sub sales I had more credit sales then sub sales and thats not because I had more credit sales than usual, I had just normal amount.

I know iStock was before credit only sales but I kinda always had a lot more subs and seemed normal to be like that so this is just not normal I think. Did anything like this happened to anyone else?

And according to July I can't hope for much sales from Thinkstock.

General Stock Discussion / Pictures of graffiti
« on: September 07, 2016, 10:05 »
Hi there,
Maybe dumb question, but do graffiti need to be set as editorial pictures as I'm not the author of graffiti, just the one who made a click? Graffiti is on (what I think is) public building.

Thanks in advance.

I'm on iStock for 3-4 months now and in this month I reached my first $100 but I haven't yet set payout type or actually opened account in bank or Paypal. So if I don't do it until September 1st what happens?

And also what is the best way to get money (with minimum taxes and bank/paypal expenses) for a non US/EU citizen?

Thanks in advance!

10 / $0.60 sale on Thinkstock
« on: August 15, 2016, 10:42 »
I don't know if this is weird or not since I'm newbie here (uploading images just for few months now) but today for the first time (after more than 200 Thinkstock downloads) I noticed picture that didn't earn 0.28, but 0.60.
Rest of downloads seem to be all for 0.28.

11 / 0.26$ for a sub?
« on: July 25, 2016, 17:28 »
Hi there,
I just got today a sub download that earned me 0.26$. I thought that every sub download brings 0.25$? Until I earn 500$ ofcourse. Did SS made some changes? My last sub download was yesterday and it was normal 0.25$.

General Stock Discussion / 3D renders as editorial photos
« on: July 13, 2016, 09:10 »
Hi there,
Olympics are coming and so is chance to earn a little bit more money than usual. But there is one problem for me: my most selling pics are 3D renders, and iStock and Shutterstock seems not to accept 3D renders as editorial photos. This is a little problem for me since I can't really make vectors and can't go to Rio to shoot pictures, or a way to shoot them at home and most of words about Olympic games aren't acceptable for commercial use.

Any suggestions how to solve this? Any words about Olympics that aren't copyrighted?

I entered Image Gallery Status on Shutterstock and sortet them by total purchases and this is what shows up. It's happened with two images. I know it's still in beta so I also checked for them in my gallery and in most popular they are in zone with pictures with one download, but they have zero. Then I entered undiscovered folder in gallery and they weren't there so they are probably downloaded at least once but I can't see it, or get money from it. I emailed to support about it but I didn't get any answer.

Does anybody else had problem like this? And does anybody know what it is about?

14 / Are bugs possible in showing downloads
« on: June 24, 2016, 17:49 »
Hi there,
I noticed on SS that when I go in my own galery it shows me pictures in oreder with those with most downloads first, but some pictures that have 0 downloads (2 of them to be percise) are showing before some some of pictures with one download. And it is always same two pictures.

Is it possible that it is some king of bug in galery showing or SS didn't show me those 2 downloads?

Hi there, I just registered today on Fotolia and instaled Fotolia instant app on my phone. Now I noticed that there is option that picture goes as free if they say that it isn't good for selling, is there any way to set this on NO automatic, so I don't need to press it every time? I know I'll forget sometimes. And in my opinion it isn't nice at all from them to set that like that!

And now more important thing: I didn't notice that option on Android app, so will it go as free? I don't want them to go like that since some of them sell on other sites.

16 / Did iStock shut down classic picture view?
« on: June 15, 2016, 11:48 »
I can't find button for classic picture view on iStock anymore, is it shutdown forever now? Aldo there was a message that they will shut it down I thought that wouldn't really do it since message was there for a wile and I heard that there is amount of people who liked old view better, and I'm among them.

General Stock Discussion / 2D flags sales
« on: June 11, 2016, 10:46 »
Hi there, I'm new so this is maybe stupid question but I have to ask. I found on iStock and Shutterstock a lot of 2D flags (illustrations and pictures) and I can't stop wondering who buys them? I mean they can be found on Wikipedia for free! Even .svg files. I uploaded some of simplier flags that I made in paint (I was that much bored!) and I earned from them almost as much as from 3D render that I make, which is not much actualy but still it doesn't make any sense for me. And if someone have expirience, is it worth uploading them on SS? (as illustrations)

18 / Private messages to contributos on SS?
« on: June 09, 2016, 08:26 »
I have been doing some words pictures on SS and I wonted to add in description that customers can contact me if they wanted some special words to be written there since I could add them in just a day, but then I realized that I don't know is it possible to send private messages to contributors on SS? I saw that there is follow and option to send comment on someones portfolio, but I have never noticed anything about messages or any way to directly contact contributor.

Maybe this is stupid question, I'm new on SS, and microstock generally :)

I uploaded on shutterstock bunch of 3D flag images (all done in same program on the same way) and around half of them got accepted but other half got rejected because of poor rasterizaion, some of them even two times. Now I don't understand why is that, how half can be good and half bad? And how to improve it?

20 / What's up with Shutterstocks 30MB limit?
« on: June 05, 2016, 11:46 »
What's up with Shutterstocks 30MB limit? I started uploading there few days ago, for now just 3D renders from Blender and i noticed that 30MB limit on picture size and some of my best pictures are larger than 30MB. Shouldnt be in their interest to have better images?

And one more question, I was robably making pictures in too high resolution (9600x7000), what's optimal resolution?

Nov sam na forumu (od danas) i drago mi je videti da ima Balkan sekcija! A olaksace mi i ovo pitanje, nadam se :). Inace nov sam i u stock fotografiji (mesec-dva).

Inace sam iz Beograda i imam nekoliko finih slika Kalemegdana i Pobednika, razmisljao sam slikati i Knez Mihajlovu, crkvu Svetog Save...

Za sada aploudujem samo na iStock i tamo ima slika Kalemegdana i kao editorial i kao obicne slike pa me zanima sta sve mogu da kacim kao obicne (komercijalne), a sta kao editorial i sta eventualno ne mogu uopste da kacim? I sta se desava ako eventualno prekrsim neko autosko pravo iz nehata?

I have noticed that in new look on iStock (I'm using old one) description isn't shown. So does that mean that UBB linking is worthless now? I'm new in this (made an acc almost a year ago but had only 8 pictures there until two months ago) so I never did it. Should I? And should I make public lightboxes? When I tried to search them nothing happened! Does buyers use mostly new design or old design? And when is old design going away?

Sorry for my bad English :(
