Sean I have been having that problems for weeks and Dreamstime has fixed something that's not broken.  What a horrible mess.  They should have been changing the $100 cash out to $30.  No, they don't care--Oscar Williams

I spoke too soon.  This morning it's not working again.  Come on Dreamstime, Get your act together.  Plus I'm using Chrome as I did when it worked.--Oscar Williams

Sorry Dreamstime about the misunderstanding about the new interface.  I got it to work on chrome.  I like it.--Oscar Williams.

Another one bites the dust.  I received my first payout in 10 years from Featurepics.  I made a big $21.00.  They are closing shop and has disabled the uploading of new images.  The mim. was $10.00 that you could ask and receive, but they are willing to give you any amount you have.  That's better than some agencies.---Oscar Williams.

PS... Who will be next?

Mine does not work in chrome.   Dreamstime should have been putting their energy in changing the payout  from $100 down to $30.00.  Oh no they don't care about us.. Even when thousands are jobless and  getting scared not knowing if they are a family member will be the next one to die from Covid--19. Like Bobby Mcferrin said--"Don't worry, be happy". This can't work now in these times--Oscar Williams

Dreamstime changed the uploading process.  It's worst than it was before.  It's not working.  This whole microstock system  is going to the pits.  I will leave them  Thanks

Steve, I want to be just like you when I grow up (Stock photography wise) I just made a birthday three days ago (75 years old) Thanks for your inspiration--Oscar Williams

Steve how in the world do you this every month? Make money.  I'm trying to figure out what I am doing wrong.  Most times I make less than a $100 dollars.  Thanks for your monthly charts, it's very inspiring---Oscar Williams

When I go to the doctor, the first thing they ask me--"Who is your insurance carrier"?  No insurance you will not get service ist class. So, why should I not get paid for my creative work?  I am a professional musician (Trumpet) and a retired music professor with a PHD in music and also the Ist Grand Prize winner in the Smithsonian Magazine Photocontest.  To make the story short.  What goes around comes around.  So don't worry be happy.---Oscar Williams--Karma is a Bit##.

20 / Re: Payout Alamy - cleared balance
« on: March 25, 2020, 11:02 »
My own opinion.  With the corona virus affecting almost every photographer's wages, Alamy should step up and pay us at least 30 days after a sale of our work.  We have bills to pay.  Almost all the stores and businesses have been sending e-mails to help us out like American express and a lot of the visa and mastercards to conatact them if we will be late paying our bill.  Why can't Alamy step up to the plate and start looking out for their photographers ?  Thank you. (My opinion)

General Stock Discussion / Dreamstime uploading not working?
« on: March 01, 2020, 03:41 »
Dreamstime, Deposit photos, barely works in order to upload images on their Upload content.  It has been many months and no one has fixed the problems.  It makes me think they don't give a D-- about us as contributors.  What is your take on this?  Why should we have to suffer when we give away our images for pennies?  That don't really bother me so much, but why jump through hoops to get things done for us as contributors?

Shutterstock---I have always had downloads every day even if it were Subs.   Now going on two weeks I have no downloads (even subs)  This is very strange for me.  Anyone else having a decline in daily downloads?

Thanks--Oscar C. Williams

What's going on here?  I really liked the old version of his monthly stock summary which was a great inspiration to me, but now you have to pay a small amount to read it or join as a member.   Hum!!!!  Am I the only one feeling like this?
