empty streets,closed borders...

If that had happened two months ago we would be much more safe today, but as always the money and the economy is on top priority for the politics and for the strongest men, they are just too late, The UK do the maximum to delay even more all measures, so stupid...

In Spain many people said to the criminal government "close our borders to italian, korean and chinese flights. Stop the propagation, we have a lot of tourists from these countries".This is not xenophobia or hate, It's common sense.

PM said "It's impossible one case of coronavirus in our country". Bizarre but true. Then, italian tourists began to spread the virus.

Meanwhile our chinese population (we have a lot) had a great behaviour, more than spaniards, they quarantine themselves to stop fear and propagation. Amazing. Proud of them, they had seen the situation in China and are smarter than we are. They closed shops and went home for several weeks.

After that the criminal government allowed massive gatherings on 8M, with the country under health alert and a lot of cases in Madrid. Thousands of people on Madrid streets, party time.

Today we have 14k infected and 741 deads. Our elderly people is dying for dozens in several places.

28 infected for every 100.000 people.

you cannot stop it...you can only close people at home till something happen...but spain economy is so week that if it close 2 months like in italy people will be on the street to look for food....italy is a country with 2.700 billions of saving in bank....spain not even comparable...it's a pretty young economy, in the 80s they look like albania as economy, so closing borders and econy in pain means go back to 80s.

italuy was the first to have lot of cases because italy like cores tested people..spain did nothing like france uk germany, because italy cares of people especially old people,. other country care of money, especially one country like spain with an economy much much weaker thant that of italy, and with family saving much much inferior....spain even blocking italy entrance have tons of workers coming from china and other infected area, so th virus would have been sprea even without italy....for example in italy there are zillions of chines people nobody seems testing positive....the big problem of spain france germany is they block everything ten days afte italy...the biggest area of spread in italy is bergamo...remeber champions league match atalanta valecia in february in milan ? 50000 people from bergamo gather inmilan that's why they have the higher number of death....in spain football run till end february, nothing stopped....in spain there will be much much worse situation than italy...even germany and france risk more deaths...i don't even consider russia and ukraine cause it's clear they are lying to population about everything like always, in those country really a million death is the norm in this case and not a big complaint if they can save economy....putin care only about its money, that's why he lies, already russia is fighting an oil battle with arab country, imagine together with coronavirus? russi alike in donetsk war said the same...no coronavirus,...but why they are building a giant hospital outside moscow? clearly for richer people, the old will be left dying for sure.

in practice they are giving free our work...i think is better remove images, so not to hurt our sales on good site....the problem are people who won't remove their images even when rpd fall to 0,05 cent and they make 5 dollar every one hundred sales.

this scare will last for years...especially the economic is gonna be a nightmare in this and next year probably, millions unemployed, sure we must change habits and common law about everything , probably deal with a much lower level of richness, and probably other thing s will improve, starting from politicians i hope.

i have probably 5% of sales i always have at this time of the day...practically sals come only from india , and country less affected by coronavirus...italy france spain uk gone literally
The worst thing that this pandemic has brought is Jonbull being forced to postpone his project Serbia! Serbians borders are closed!  ;)

i agreed) and  also no lifestyle shooting for the next 2 months minimum,, nail in the coffin of micro stock...

everybody selling stocks in market to buy photos!!...ahaha...coronavirus will kill this business for the next 2 3 months at least.

12
every business is down 90%...stock market are falling down, oil falling down,.,.,.and people think that micro stock won-t be affected_ isn0t t funny_

the end of the world!!!
i'm writing from Ground Zero (North Italy), maybe you are right, i hope not.

Are you and jonbull the same person?
i dont' think

"refused for similar continent"?

either the most false rejection one can face ever...

...either a cool typo!

:P  ;D


Anyway, CG virus images seem to do dominate the news.

ahah...no content...i checked is full of series with changing flag ugly as hell...but mine are similar continent refused several time and i already had a warning not to submit....really crossing finger their stock go to one dollar soon...i will prefer lose all my earning but see them go out of business...200000 coronavirus photo accepted 99 % looks made by a child of 2 years. not  single one with good light...seems like everybody with a cell phone put something on a table and shoot.

280000 shits accepted then they refuse 20 files clearly different in concept meaning and potential customer for similar content....a tsunami should hit their office....not coronavirus

15
they accept zillions of craps included thousand of similar images for coronavirus, i uploaded 20 images who relate each to a different country despite being the same with change the flag, like thousand images already in coronavirus search, and they accept 2 and the rest refused for similar continent, despite the 2 have already sold many times and they are not the most important country affected by coronavirus, in adobe they sell every day and are counterbalancing the complete death of any other content...i wrote those idiots of ss they use ai machine also for support?

if only this virus would zero all micro stock industry there would have been a reason to stay home.

16
ss completely dead already? adobe a bit better....today since 9 o'clock zero sales...i hope american market but don't hold my breath..

Paper magazines sell less and less. Online magazines are the future.
But maybe im wrong.  :)

dreamser...you are just considering that nothing change....video already see many subscription model with cheap price 1,5 dollar per sale, near photo but sale for video are not comparable, probably one video eery 1000 photo if not more....the same as motion graphic illustration, probably considering the crisis there will be even more competition...everybod living photo for video and motion graphic, the same pressure on price, high offer low demand....it-s a fact...in addiction while more complex motion design is not nuclear science...in easter europe there are zillions people doing this. so don-t believe a lot on your idea.

Shutterstock made 4.35 Million profit last quarter, microstock is making money. 2019, Pond5 launched partnerships with Reuters, Cover Video, and Newsflare to create the largest Editorial video collection. Depositphotos was founded by Dmitry Sergeev in November 2009 in Kiev, Ukraine. iStokc pays us 15% and you are calling microstock dead. The companies are making good money from microstock and people like you who give them pictures.

microstock is falling , ss growth is practically zero, next year probably begin losing money

from next week most country will be like italy...everything shut down office closed...who people think will gonna buy photo)...ss will experience the same as any other business 80% of revenue gone, and the same contributor. pretty simple.

22
We are nose diving into a major economic slowdown. Aside from companies who produce hand sanitizer, we are all screwed.
This. Huge recession, budgets squeezed everywhere. It's going to hurt almost everyone.

it's obvious and i can see only portfolio....clearly some will still earn something, but shutter stock will lose millions like any other company, considering the sector was not in the best shape is a difficult situation, personally i hope all micro fails so maybe we rebegin from zero....but i doubt...

23
I see a decline in my travel photo sales, roughly 15-20% already.

it's pretty clear that micro stock will fall down...those who say contrary are simply ling to themselves...

Maybe I am, I'm sworn to keep my secret identity secret. For myself, and I deny that Microstock will fall down. I am Ling Ling

No matter who you are or what you do, there will always be a Ling Ling who is above your level.

There will always be Microstock. Maybe artists will make nothing, and some companies will close, but there will always be Microstock as long as there are people with cameras.

Wondering how microstock sites such as Getty/istock will be affected by the coronavirus.

Can Getty get any lower or worse?  ;) Overall, I think we'll see less use, less downloads and less earnings, until this passes. Except people who are shooting empty streets, empty shelves, showing sick people, or drawing corona virus illustrations.

A lot of advertising assignments are being put on hold, and we freelancers are not getting any work. So Id guess therell be a negative impact.

That's a good example of how and why, and a good prediction.
 

sure some will still make good money mostly not...and is not your case of course
