Microstock News / Zoonar price category changes
« on: February 17, 2020, 11:52 »
We have decided to offer only two price categories from this day forward in order to provide our customers with an easier and more streamlined purchasing experience. The two remaining price categories will be "Microstock" and "Premium", the category "Standard" no longer exists. It wasn't popular with our customers and never really caught on.

As a consequence of this we changed all photos with price category "Standard" to "Microstock". If you want to change that setting, please go to the "Manage Pictures" page and change the setting to "Premium". Please only use the Premium categ

General Photography Discussion / Flickr sudden price increases
« on: January 22, 2020, 00:26 »
It seems Flickr is running into some finance problems. I will gladly pay but how i hate that Americans refuse to include taxes into the final price
To that end, effective today, the price of a Flickr Pro membership has increased to:

1 month: $6.99, plus tax
3 month: $18.99, plus tax
1 year: $59.99, plus tax
2 year: $117.99, plus tax


General Stock Discussion / Royalty for images used in print run.
« on: November 25, 2019, 22:13 »
I just got my royalties for these two images used in this ad, from what i read it was used in a full page ad in New York Times. The royalties received was 12.50 each with the agency that's submitting to Getty taking 12,50 (50/50 split) i know the NY Times got a pretty large print run i would have thought the price would be more?


It seems Adobe Stock does not like defocused images. I've had a number of images being rejected with some of them being really good sellers elsewhere https://www.istockphoto.com/za/photo/blurred-photo-of-fans-cheering-during-cricket-match-gm1141350038-305737204

Does anybody know if they just reject it altogether or are there any keywords i need to add other than blur, defocused?

I found this image on eyeem https://www.alamy.com/sam-jam-session-2017-image269818639.html and just found another one with some other photographers name under the listed name of photographer? 

Hi there i am looking for a application thats safe to submit to multiple agencies?

Now that twenty20 belongs to Envato they added new tax implications. I wonder how much will they pay for images now?

How do you complete multiple releases for a series instead of having to do a release for each photo?

Anyone got info on this agency. How much are they paying contributors


Hi there i am interested to know how can one improve your images rankings on Getty's website. Does sales improve the ranking which means it will be a harder task for someone whose image appears on page 52 of the search.

General Stock Discussion / Getty price reduction

Was there ever a announcement of the reduction in pricing? Subscription downloads was $2 now its $1.

General Stock Discussion / Twenty20 premium status
« on: June 06, 2018, 02:36 »
I noted via a sale today that Twenty20 is offering Premium Status which would offer the user a verified account and faster review time and payout on-demand for 99c per month. I am not sure how this would benefit me, my sales stream have been increasing but not sure if this is something people would opt for.

I am sure this image was not purchased hence the visible watermark. Could this be considered a infringement?


I been wondering if twenty20 ever has sales over $2?
