Newbie Discussion / Shutter stock rejections arrgghh
« on: October 31, 2019, 04:09 »
So submitted two photos of Lake Louise, same shutter speed, aperture, iso, focal length. Taken a few seconds apart and from slightly different angles. One photo gets approved and one gets rejected because of noise. Uh. I get it if both photos are rejected, prefer both are approved. But what gives with the review process?

Sorry rant over.

General Stock Discussion / Asset Removed
« on: October 08, 2019, 16:43 »
Just checking my images on iStock to find that my most viewed and sold image has been removed. No notification what so ever.

Anybody else had this issue before? I have sent an email and waiting for a response.

Newbie Discussion / Alamy Payments
« on: August 04, 2019, 04:42 »
Just woken up this and got super excited to find a couple of photos sold on Alamy for $300, then I realised that Alamy shows the full purchase price before they remove 60%, doh... Well at least it's still 40%...but then I read the part that says buyers can take between 45 - 90 days to pay WHAT!!!!

In your experience how many customers don't pay and cancel the purchase on Alamy?

Newbie Discussion / How much time?
« on: July 31, 2019, 01:51 »
Hi everybody, as a newbie in these parts I was wondering how long does it take you to title and keyword and then submit.

Lets say 10 images across three options
1. 10 very different images, different subjects etc.
2. 10 photos of similar subjects but slightly different
3. 10 photos of the same subject just different angles

Then submit to the likes of SS, Adobe, iStock.

I feel its taking me far to long to do option a, maybe 2 hours once Ive got the photos looking the way I want them which itself can take a couple of hours.


General Stock Discussion / Rejections...
« on: June 09, 2019, 11:26 »
Fairly new to MicroStock, if I had hair I would be pulling it out at the various rejections and the inconsistency from the various agencies.

The latest was an editorial photo of a misspelt sign in Cambodia. Food stall selling crabs had a handwritten sign with the price and the word "Crap'

Rejected by SS for poor grammar in the image. Yes, I did put in the description that the sign was misspelt, doh

General Stock Discussion / Urgent Review
« on: June 05, 2019, 09:22 »
Hi everybody, is there a way to editorial content reviewed urgently. I'm hoping to shoot some news worthy images and want to get them uploaded and accepted while the news or event is still fresh.
I'm posting to the normal suspects SS, DT, iStock etc.


Newbie Discussion / Universal Model Releases
« on: May 22, 2019, 02:56 »
Hi everybody, fairly new to microstock. Is there a model release from any of the top 10 agencies (based on earnings rating) that are accepted across all agencies? Don't want to get releases signed and find that for example the Shutterstock release is not accepted by Adobe.

Look forward to your feedback

Newbie Discussion / Workflow & Tools
« on: March 08, 2019, 16:35 »
Hi everybody, fairly new to stock photography and wondering what you boys and girls do as far as a workflow for getting photos ready, keywording and then submitting to the likes of Shutterstock, AdobeStock etc.
