Alamy.com / Re: How do you know?
« on: October 11, 2021, 11:08 »
NM.

Dashboard > Account Settings > "Your commission model is Alamy XX"

Until the reset, then check again.

What does this "comission model" mean? It's the first time I check it.

Have you tried submitting a DMCA notice to [email protected]? That usually works.

DepositPhotos / Re: Yayimages contributor on Depositphotos
« on: May 01, 2021, 14:07 »
I can confirm, they don't help with deleting the images from various sites (depositphotos, agefotostock, alamy and possibly others), they also don't pay you.  >:(

They have this in their contributor terms: "YAY does not take responsibility if an image has been marked for deletion, and is still available for sales either on yaymicro.com or any partner site. It is the contributors responsibility to make sure the image has in fact been removed."

Dear Jim,

Carstickers is an API partner.  When someone purchases a sticker from them, you will get a royalty.

Kind Regards,

Wow. So they now admit carstickers being a partner. And I had to wait like half a year for them to tell me they are not partners. Just when I was thinking SS can not be shittier than this. I am pretty mad now - apparently they just lied to me, so they could keep the royalties. I wonder how anyone still trusts this crappy company.

How many downloads did you get that you aren't paid for?

There is no way to check, so I don't know. My works were there for more than half a year after I disabled sales on Shutterstock.

"We would also like to inform you that www.carstickers.com is not an affiliates/partners of Shutterstock."




If that's true, I'm surprised that Shutterstock seems to have no problem with them openly using the company name to sell stickers.


That is what they have told me. If you PM me your e-mail, I can forward you the whole conversation with SS. Now I read it again, and at one point carstickers replied that they are partners with shutterstock, but shutterstock thinks/says they are not.

CanStockPhoto.com / Re: Payment history
« on: March 25, 2021, 14:22 »
Is there a way to see payment history on CS please?

I am sorry, probably too late, but the answer is yes, under My Account you go to My Reports and then you can change the dropdown menu to Payment History and you can generate a report.

I also found some of my work on this website in September last year. I contacted shutterstock (I disabled my portfolio in may 2020) and after many pointless e-mails finally at the end of January 2021 I got the reply from shutterstock, saying carstickers is not their partner site:

"We would also like to inform you that www.carstickers.com is not an affiliates/partners of Shutterstock."

In the meantime I tried contacting carstickers website, with no reply at all, so I filed a DMCA notice to their host company ([email protected]). That worked, and they took it down in a week or so. I advice you try the same (fill out the takedown notice and send it to amazon).

I got my payment last month, and I haven't reached the minimum amount yet this month. I hope it's just a temporary issue.

Hi guys and girls,

I would like to get in touch with this contributor. Any chance you are here or anyone knows of a web/instagram?

There is a contributor Cesare Bonetta on Getty, but you got to be more specific if you want help. Might be this one. https://cesarebonetta.jimdofree.com/

Canva / Re: Canva ftp upload down for anyone else?
« on: March 10, 2021, 12:51 »
And there's something else: I just noticed I didn't have any direct (non subscription) sales since Sunday. Normally I get at least a couple each day. Three days in a row seems a bit odd.

Same-ish. No sale since friday  :(

Later edit: Looks like complaining helps, I just had a sale.

I have just tried and I can not connect
"Error:   Authentication failed.

Do you get the same message or you are able to connect but the upload is not working? (I had that too a couple of weeks ago)

Canva / Re: How to delete an image
« on: March 05, 2021, 08:40 »
Anyone else noticed that, when you go to https://www.canva.com/contributors/upload and then to approved and scroll down through port, there are duplicates or even triplicates of the same image? For example, when I scrolled down I found thumbnail for the same image in 3 different locations, when I right-click that image and then open in new tab image has exactly the same filme name?

And I'm pretty sure, I didn't upload the same image 3 times, and even if I would, filenames would be different?

Is there any other link to check your port?

Anyone else showing blank pages under this link (https://www.canva.com/contributors/upload) for approved, even though portfolio appears correctly under this link: https://www.canva.com/portfolio ?

Yes, me too. I never understood their contributor platform, it's very hard to navigate, so I rarely go there. I just upload via ftp and forget about them :))

Anyone else having issues with the GL site not loading?

I'm just getting a blank page

I'd guess it's totally abandoned. I asked them more than a month ago to delete my port, no reply ever since.

I had several of these, but as I never really wanted to sell, I always put the highest price (5000). You only need to remove the image from other sites if the buyer buys the rights.
Other than that, you should put a price that suits you, if it's not an image that sells, you can put less, but I would not go under 500 (you only get part of that anyways).

Yaymicro / Re: Yay reopening??
« on: February 24, 2021, 12:12 »
I just wanted to remind you all that stay on Yayimages, to read the contributor agreement.

"YAY does not take responsibility if an image has been marked for deletion, and is still available for sales either on yaymicro.com or any partner site. It is the contributors responsibility to make sure the image has in fact been removed."

After I closed my account in 2016 on Yay, their partner, agefotostock kept selling my images until recently. It took me about 2 months to get them deleted, and I got 0 payment for these 4 years.

It is our responsibility, but they don't give a f**k and when you ask for deletion the partners will tell you they have no contract with you as a contributor, and yay will tell you it's not their problem.

Yayimages is my worst nightmare in my 12 years of being a contributor.

GLStock / Re: GLStock is not paying!
« on: February 13, 2021, 11:16 »
This thread reminded me to check on my GL stock account - there have been no sales there in years. I don't expect to live long enough to get from the current $20+ balance to $50, so I've deleted my best sellers and written to them to request they close my account.

It's outrageous that they should fall flat on their faces and still refuse to pay balances, in spite of what the contributor agreement states. I asked to be paid, but I don't expect them to suddenly grow a conscience. It was a pain to delete a selection of images, but it avoids growing my losses there should a sale just happen by before they get around to deleting my account.

Did they delete your images/ close your account? I sent them several messages for the last 2 weeks but no reply until now. Deleting one by one is a pain.

Canva / Re: Random payment generator?
« on: February 12, 2021, 08:06 »
So - does anybody know how the 'subs' part of our income is being calculated now? Clearly no longer double March. Seems a random number just....appears....
Did I miss any update?

There was no need to update, they informed us about this in the e-mail about the double earnings (in April):

"we are allocating a percentage of Canvas subscription revenue to a new royalty pool that will be paid to contributors like you every time your content gets used as part of our subscriptions.


What will happen to my earnings?
The current royalty pool is $9.5 million USD on an annualised basis and importantly, it will continue to grow proportionally as Canvas subscription revenue grows. Every time a Canva subscriber uses one of your assets, youll earn a share of the royalty pool, paid to you shortly after the end of each calendar month."

Canva / Re: Upload progress @ canva?
« on: February 10, 2021, 08:09 »
About 2 months, currently. I upload via WeTransfer, and I get a notification when they download the files. They appear as In Review on my account. Then I regularly check Canva to see when they are approved. You won't get a notification if they are rejected or approved. It will just be marked as such in your portfolio.

(I make almost the same amount on canva with 70 vectors as I make on Adobe with 700).

This is true. I stopped uploading to Adobe. I really think their user base is more photo heavy, not vectors. I mean, the company is the go-to for photo manipulation so it only makes sense.

Well I can't see any of my vectors which I've uploaded. It's empty. I guess those files are still in the review queue.
I wonder why you see your files in your portfolio, whether they are approved or not?! I don't see any files there...

Try this link: https://www.canva.com/portfolio and switch from rasters to vectors in the dropdown menu.
BTW January sales are available now and canva just passed AdobeStock for me in earnings.

General Stock Discussion / Re: A list of partner programs
« on: February 05, 2021, 07:33 »
Hey there

I found my images on www.ingimage.com, but I don't find any information from which site or partner-program.

Can someone help-me?

Thanks


I uploaded a couple of my images to www.ingramportal.com and those are my images that are listed on this website (ingimage). They might be working with other companies too (on ingram you can opt in or out of distribution partners, including Getty or Alamy).

Never had one of these in 11 years I've been there (2009-2020) and never heard about this though I used to visit their forum quite often. I guess lucky me then.
When you thought SS could not get any worse...

« on: February 02, 2021, 13:37 »
How do you upload vectors to canva, I mean, do you upload eps file and jpeg in zip file, or just eps.?

I use ftp - EPS + JPG (with metadata embedded).
Lately they made it possible to upload vectors directly via their site, but they ask for the metadata to be included in a CSV file. I don't want to do this extra work, so I prefer the ftp method.
I embed metadata in the JPG file and that works for almost all agencies.

Hi there,

I've started to upload several illustrations to my new canva account.

But I can't see any progress respectively any stats whether my uploads are approved or declined.

How long does such an approvement progress take?


Thank you in advance.
Mancu

It usually takes a really long time, can be even a month or two. I don't know exactly, because they don't notify you and I don't check so often. They also reject a lot (I only have 10% of my portfolio there) and they don't give you a reason of rejection. So it's annoying, but the sales are good (I make almost the same amount on canva with 70 vectors as I make on Adobe with 700).
