General Stock Discussion / Same images on many Stockphoto sites
« on: August 18, 2018, 07:20 »
Hey everyone!

Since the agencys pay and charges very different, I wonder if it is a bad thing to have the same image on many different sites? As a customer it would be possible to get the image you want cheaper if you go to right site.

I have started to upload once again to Shutterstock and Dreamstime, mainly because I do photographs and illustrations and if it only sits on my hard disc it makes nothing good more than I feel good when making it.

So my choice now is - 1 stay with Shutterstock and Dreamstime or - 2 find one or two sites more and upload my small portfolio and see if it could bring me some pocketmoney.

Dreamstime.com / AI or robot inspection???

I havent been active on Dreamstime for a couple of years. But I have uploaded  some photos and illustrations recently. Sometimes a picture will be reviewed immediately and show up in my portfolio. And sometimes one photo show up and the rest have to wait as usual. What is going on here? Have they start using AI to inspect images? 

Photo Critique / illustrations

I do illustrations like this. What shall I improve?
I have pretty much next to nothing in sales, very depressing. Either I improve or I stop. But I already have developed a lot since the first drawings I made, so maybe I can improve a little bit more.
And of course I have to figure what will a buyer need? Any tip will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Bigstock.com / uploads

I only use the simple upload, but I have been unable to have any picture at all submitted  for about 3 weeks. The submit button wont show up.

Anyone else having problem with this?


I think its a little bit confusing.............

My experience today  ( Im only two months old in this, so I am pretty unexperienced ) is that different sites require different preparing of the image.

Some say - its overfiltered, some say its approved. And still it is the same picture - prepared the same way.

I save all my images as working psd, so of course its relatively simple to change it. But confusing since I didnt know yet which one requires what.

So any sharing would be helpful. I contribute today to - dreamstime, 123RF, Cutcaster, Visco images, Bigstock, Canstock, Fotolia.

I also have some reflections if it is prefarable to do as much as possible in camera raw - maybe that dont destroy the image so much = overfiltered. (I use CS4)

greatful to all responses

As a newbie its extremely important to me to be able to see how many views my image got.

Newbie Discussion / checking views at different sites
« on: March 01, 2011, 05:34 »
Ooooops! I make something wrong with my first thread. So I got two post on the same subject. Please excuse me.
I try to delete one of the posts but didnt make it.  :'(

As a newbie its very important to me to check how many views I got on different pictures.  

This is my prefered agencys,     Visco images    easy to check, a few views
                                               123RF             cant see any views at all   ???
                                               Bigstock          I have to click on each image to check the views - very time consuming  >:(
                                               Fotolia            easy to check, some more views
                                               Dreamstime    easy to check, some more views and two sales!  ;D
                                               Can Stock       easy to check, only one views on each images

As I am only 2 months old in this "business" its extremely important to me to be able to see how many views I have.

123RF is my big problem - how to see views?
Bigstock the second - because of their time consuming construction.

Happy for all responses. This microstockgroup is a very supportive community.
