1 / help identify what's the problem???
« on: February 02, 2019, 06:12 »
Hello fellow microstockers.

Got this lovely note from gettyimages | ESP :

File was returned for revision on December 17, 2018
Revision Reasons

Legal: Identifiable
This file contains legible information such as names, signatures, license plates, phone numbers, identification numbers, etc. Due to concerns relating to privacy and related property rights, we cannot accept this file into the creative collection unless this information is removed, or a property release is obtained. Please remove these details and resubmit.
Retouching: Logos

Retouching required - Remove logos.

my problem is... I don't see any logos?? There was an apple logo on the MacBook which I removed, and there was a logo on the coffee cup that I removed as well.

So what's the issue here? Is Apple hardware not allowed even without logos? or is it watch?

I REALLY wish they would be a bit more specific!

MicrostockSubmitter / ESP key and secret
« on: January 04, 2019, 06:25 »
I wanted to keyword properly some images for iStock, and got message about missing ESP API key / secret, I can see it needs to be inserted into the Sites settings box here:

But where do I find these values (key / secret ) on the esp site? I did look everywhere... :(

Or I shouldn't even bother with iStock and Stock Submitter, as I read the other post saying they don't accept stock submitter photos? Or I can still manually upload everything, just not submit it automatically

Photography Equipment / Nikon D800 and 256 GB Memory Card
« on: December 23, 2018, 14:54 »
I'm thinking of getting a new memory card ( SanDisk Extreme PRO 256 GB SDXC Memory Card Class 10 ) fro my trusty Nikon D800, however, when I look at the list of officially approved compatible memory cards,
they go only up to 128GB.

I suspect this might be just the case of the Nikon not updating their list regularly enough,
but it would be nice to get some confirmation from people having this camera and using this memory card!

Anybody tried this combination?

Newbie Discussion / Pending status on 123RF for almost 2 weeks now
« on: December 11, 2018, 10:02 »
I've uploaded my first 15 images to 123RF and status is showing as Pending. It's been more than over week and a half, had contacted them about it , as I was not sure if I need to do anything on my side, to move it along across the submission process, got no answer.

Is this normal?

Newbie Discussion / Generic model release form?
« on: December 03, 2018, 06:39 »

newbie here :)

I want to upload some images with people to some stock photo agencies, already had accepted non model photos, and  my question is this:

Is it possible to create a general model release form? Let's say a family member or a good friend that doesn't mind having his picture uploaded / sold.

My 2 main concerns are fields on the Model release form (Shutterstock for example)

Date of the Shoot, and Description of the scene.

They seem to limit time and place this form can be used.

Have anybody tried to leave these blank? or write something like "Any" or "N/A"? This release forms are major PITA, so any help on this would be appreciated.

Many thanks
