General Stock Discussion / Possible Photo Misuse
« on: May 25, 2018, 13:35 »
I have found one of my images online being sold as a sticker or decal by two different vendors.  One of the vendors has also used the image in a collage of several other images (not mine) and sells it as a sticker.

To the best of my knowledge this kind of use is not permitted by any of the licenses I sell under (i.e. standard RF licenses at major stock agencies.)

Can anyone advise as to how I might proceed?  Links below.



This story on Huffington Post:


Uses this picture for sale on Featurepics (and perhaps elsewhere):


Huffpost credits "Google."

Does google now sell microstock?


General Photography Discussion / Refurbished Equipment
« on: March 24, 2012, 10:34 »
Thinking of buying a refurbished Nikon D7000.  They are available from NikonUSA at significantly less than Adorama.  Can anyone provide experience with used/refurbished equipment from either vendor?  Or just general experience with any refurbished photo equipment?

Thanks and

Selling Stock Direct / Google Analytics
« on: December 07, 2011, 17:27 »
Anyone using Google Analytics for their site?  Do you find it useful?  Google says it is free.  What is the downside?  What are the alternatives?

Obviously I am a real newbie with this stuff.  Any help at all would be appreciated.

123RF / Problem with (new?) 123RF Partner
« on: December 06, 2010, 08:02 »

Just saw a 123RF partner - new one perhaps - and really don't like the watermark situation there.  Writing 123RF support if you agree drop them a line.  I would really like to get this fixed.

General Stock Discussion / Audio stock recommendations
« on: March 07, 2010, 08:24 »

I am trying to get started selling audio stock.  I have just been accepted by iStock's audio section and am waiting for my first submittals to be reviewed.

Can anyone recommend some other sites?

Thanks and

iStockPhoto.com / December DL's Near ZERO (0)
« on: December 13, 2009, 08:58 »
As my images meter shows I am a very small player at iStock (132 images). However, my sales drop for December is so bad that I contacted iStock support (FWIW).  I have just a single sale this month - average would be 10 or so.  I know December is supposed to be slow (although I have a BME on SS ) This is orders of magnitude lower than what I was getting 2 years ago for December.

Anyone else have similar experience there recently?

Adobe Stock / Extended License Price Reset
« on: March 04, 2009, 04:20 »

I just made Bronze on FT and need to reset my Extended (Enhanced?) License prices. Always hated the 20 credit low price I was forced to charge - would prefer even higher but 50 will have to do for now.   Do I have to do this one at a time or can I do some kind of bulk edit to change them all at once?

Any assistance appreciate.

(I suppose I could ask on their forum or from FT support but spend more time here!)

Dreamstime.com / Whats up with DT?
« on: November 11, 2008, 03:54 »
DT has always been a strong number three but has recently - last two months - been underperforming and is now dead last - of my 7 sites -  for November with 0 downloads.  Others having this problem?

PS: Was it the Mcain/Palin pic's in their rotation that turned people off? (Didn't see any comparable Obama images there but maybe I missed them.)
