General Stock Discussion / more or less clips from one shooting?
« on: November 20, 2019, 12:53 »
So i have a dilema, i usually shoot some similar shots but different in some way, but i just don't know if there is a point of uploading 4-7 clips that are a bit different but with same content? How do you choose clips that will upload? Does it effect on the sells? Is it better to be more picky? Thanks

Pond5 / How to price your shots?
« on: November 20, 2019, 12:52 »
I believe this has been debated before but i will ask again, how do you price your shots? I use stocksubmitter and i get automatic prices i guess pond5 chooses them? But how do you price your clips?

Recently i have upgraded my camera gear just for stock, and i have noticed that when i upload 4096 resolution the buyers get option for full HD in bigger resolution than 1920x1080. my question is, is it worth uploading 4096 or stick to UHD? Thanks

iStockPhoto.com / Exporting video for Istock from windows
« on: January 28, 2019, 16:46 »
I recently started with uploading video clips to agencies and only on istock they require mov format, i used to export my video clips h.264 format i know that they accept 422 apple pro res codec but since i am on windows i could only export it with quicktime to make a mov file, still no luck i couldn't upload it. Anyone has solution for this? How do you export videos for istock? Thanks

Video Equipment / Sofware / Technique / All-I or IPB Compression
« on: January 18, 2019, 15:56 »
I have two Canon DSLRs and one shoots All-I and the other cheaper one is IPB only, but its smaller and more practical :)

Does it matter which one you chose for stock footage? I know that all-i is better quality but in the end, does it matter?

General - Stock Video / Frames per second for agencies
« on: January 08, 2019, 12:29 »
I generally upload to many agencies, i have noticed that there is mixed FPS all over the footage some have 30 fps some 24 fps. I have been mostly shooting at 24 frames, is there a correct way of doing it for stock or any particular agency? Thanks

« on: January 07, 2019, 16:45 »
Hello ! I started posting to Alamy agency and i am posting with Stocksubmitter, i have noticed that most of my photos have poor discoverability in my overview page. But if i click on my photo in submission i have selected supertags and discoverability is green, is this some kind of bug or am i doing something wrong? Thanks

« on: January 07, 2019, 12:20 »
Glad i found this forum ! Recently i started with my stock career, i have 24 MP camera and i know that people that have 40+ MP downsize images for better quality, i am not sure if i should do the same, what are your thoughts on image sizes since i am limited to 24 MP. Thanks
