General - Top Sites / Predictions for december
« on: November 10, 2017, 12:55 »
What are your prdictions for next december? about your coming  -slow- numbers...

Hello, I would like to know how I can migrate my Fotoia account to Adobe Stock?
I tried with my id I use on Fotolia, but no succes to connect...
Thank you!


At these agencies, you can't get the amount you made by month. You have to do the maths every month... too bad!
To these agencies: please, implement the little code  ::)

Hello all,
At PM, I get a box for transfer of remuneration asking :
"   I am selling my images at PantherMedia...
    (o) privately without the intent to realize profits
    (o) commercially (corporation or tax liable person) "

In fact, I don't really understand the fine details here.
What is the involvement of ticking?
It appears there are people selling images here, and not intended to realize profits????  :P

GLStock / Graphicleftovers and paypal payment
« on: November 30, 2010, 14:14 »
I just asked for a payment at Graphicleftovers. They did it very fast.  :)
But... Paypal is cutting $3.73 from the $87.88 for costs of perception.  >:(

What is your experience? is it lower if I do the transfert with moneybookers?

Veer / New exotic rejection for vectors
« on: July 03, 2010, 03:43 »
I had recently these rejections  for vectors :
"Other concerns. Some or all layers appear to be locked. This can cause problems for customers. Please unlock all layers and resubmit."

I usually lock the white background, I am curious to know what kind of issue this can cause to the customer...
grrrrrrrrrrrr  >:( just crazy...

anyone else ?

I submit eps 8 files from illustrator in rgb (sRGB) to Bigstock. The server generates jpeg with weird colors, as if it had been converted into cmyk.
This issue has already been reported but never found a solution.
Is there someone out there who can submit rgb eps files to Bigstock without loss of the colors ? I know a lot of illustrators work natively in cmyk format, considering the printing side, and may not have this problem.
The same issue happens at canstock, but only yaymicro generates no weird jpeg from eps.
I think that the problem comes form the server side, but I don't know if something can be done from illustrator side.
Or maybe the only solution is to submit rasterised jpg to these sites.
Could you tell me what you know about all that, thank you !

11 / How to add map release as TEXT file ?
« on: January 18, 2009, 09:05 »
I hope somebody can help here, how to add map/information release as TEXT file ?
In the release manager, you can only upload JPEG files as releases.
For previous files, I did a print screen of the text, and send it as jpeg, but they refuse it now.
They want absolutely this information as text, and I didn't find how to send them a text file.

General Macrostock / Places for RM images
« on: September 04, 2008, 04:46 »
Hello, I would like to get some opinion about that :
Putting the same RM non exclusive images at Alamy (Licensed), Photoshelter, Inmagine and Featurepics.
Is there something wrong by doing that ?
FP is a place you have to put a price, how high should it be to be compatible with others ?
Any other agencies to put RM images ?
Anyone experienced with that ?
Thank you!

14 / I am today's best
« on: June 09, 2008, 18:22 »
Very suprised of it today, and sure they got better pictures this day,
but... I am pleased of it, and the comment is nice  :)

Hi all.
These frustrating rejections happen there : "Color Profiles--Your image contains both RGB and CMYK color profiles. Please resubmit your vector with only 1 color profile". The problem seems to be complex as seen on SS forum, and depends on software version used to convert into eps, and to read eps.
Is there anybody who knows how to get rid off that ?
I am still searching...
(and waiting a raise for illustrations there too  :-\ ).

New Sites - General / Pixburger, new in europe
« on: March 22, 2008, 06:35 »
for the people who can understand some French, a new microstock agency has just opened. We heard about it for months in France, and finally opened.
It's in beta, and only readable in french for now, but you can already do the indexation in English and send files by FTP, the system works with iptc/xmp data, and translation is done by the search engine.
The currency is euro :)

Pixburger belongs an european group: Fotovista (Pixmania, Foci..., 1200 employees, 6 million customers...) and  I am sure they will do it well. Both stock and editorial can be sold.
The website really gives a professionnal feeling and has very interesting features.
Photographer Royalties are 40%. Prices are 1 credit for lowres, 5 for highres, 49 for extended and 99 for one year exclusivity and editorial. This sounds interesting to me.

In case you want to use it for registration, I propose you my referal number  : 10043.
Have a look here :, what do you think about that new place ?
