This is so crazy, now I can't tell you the future but as of now you stand a better chance of dying of heart disease, car accident, weather related injuries, cancer and the list goes on. This is still a very minor virus at this point, you still have more to fear from the flu!!

On the other hand since people can leave and still have work they will buy stock instead of shooting their own. Could be a boon for us.

I understand what you are saying all I am stating is the it is not dollar  for dollar 50% more as I have the sales to prove it.

Only doing the % math not the earnings, I have sold a lot of exclusive files and it is not 50%  earnings difference, I can post that.

I love Adobe and want it to grow, I would like a better lightbox setup where we can make selections better have have more of them. I agree with all what is stated above. I would love to see more creative advertising as well, do something different. I am thrilled that you do advertise and that would be my main push is to get more buyers.

It is a real pain in the rear there put a check mark on the box where you want the release you can select multiple clips, then select the release. You can only select one release at a time but you can attach it to multiple clips.

If you can't walk away now then you have no reason to complain! So happy I did!!!

Really people if they roll out something nice for the artist and some tools I am happy. If they cut prices I am not happy. That simple, so if no price cut then Merry Christmas to me!

Adobe has gone down in sales for me as well, It may have to do with Fotolia closing. They were really strong for me in the beginning of the year, hope they pick back up as they are a great agency to work with.

Hey, They do not submit to StoryBlocks after their stunt.

I would not call it exclusive. You can not duplicate files on other sites, you are free to say upload to Getty if you wish as they do not submit to them.

Like it or not you earn more on BB through SS then you do on SS alone they are just not sharing that! Feel free to ask others as well.

I feel that is a problem and hope in the future it can be addressed, at least let us know what sites accepted our clips.

not sure if there is, might be $100

Been full-time since 2010 income has gone up and down some but still along for the ride. Can't complain!

Yes they have a different contract with them.

I can't answer the tax questions, BB gets a higher % than you on your own and passes that along to you so you get more per sale on ShuttterStock. Now keep in mind this service is not for everyone! If you want full control over your work then do not use BB! It is a huge time saver and you need to factor that in as well as time is money. To each their own on this.

Thank-you for all the kind comments! I am just tryin to give people good information on this industry. No do do not have to be all Exclusive on Pond5, it started that way and then they changed it which only confused people and was a bod move. I will do my best to keep us all in the loop the best I can. I love BB as well and the 15% is a wash as you get a higher % from SS per download as you would on your own. Not for everyone but it is not a bad choice for stock in my opinion.  I did not include them as they are not a stock agency.

Thank-you so much! Fixed the link sorry about that!
