123RF / Re: Is it the end of 123rf

Made more on 123 than SS this month, didn't think I'd ever say that. SS is dead to me.

General Stock Discussion / Re: 500px end of year 4 cents
« on: January 11, 2020, 03:26 »
Almost had a heart attack yesterday when 16 sales emails came through from 500px. False alarm though as they were all Getty scraps at 4c - 14c! Almost a full dollar for 16 sales. I clicked on one of my images on Getty and the smallest is advertised at $50 so how can they be so low? That's a serious bulk discount! Any way to drop Getty on 500px as I'll be paying them soon?

Same here. Just tried on a different browser (FF) and I received an email saying I need to reset my password!

Same. If it's anything like the endless review times it will never be fixed!

Just clicked display statistics without changing anything and the daily sales thumbnails changed to revenue per image for the period! Useful feature!

@Chichikov To find an image to edit it or delete it, search in your portfolio (using a relevant keyword), get the Id number, then enter the Id number in "Search by content Id", which is in your dashboard. Then delete the image or edit as you wish.

Asfaik most sites don't have a search for images which aren't online yet, but the above method is pretty simple to find and edit individual images in your AS portfolio.

Hope this helps.

So when I want to create a new collection, I have to go to the portfolio page, search by keyword, write down the ID number, go to my files and search the id number and add it to a collection. Rinse and repeat the 60+ times to add all the files.

Sounds so much better than search files by keyword, ticking all the files returned by the search and add to collection.

This isn't a problem about files not online, it's a problem when dealing with a large batch alteration... whether that's creating a new featured collection, edit keywords or delete.

I have no idea about collections, @Chichikov said he could not find and edit/delete individual images because he can't find them, when in fact it is possible to find images with keywords. No need to write down the Id. use copy/paste.

I'm not responsible for the way AS works but it's been said several times in this forum that there is no method to search ones own portfolio. And I'm just saying there is a way.

You're a star, I'd clicked every link and not seen this page!

I was hoping they would forget to close FT as I don't like using the AS site. It's the most frustrating site of them all, why under 'my statistics' does it default to top sellers!! A simple remember last settings would save me 9 clicks every time I refresh the page. Also, is there a way to see what files have sold on a particular day because I've given up searching for it!

What a system! We'll be going the same way in the UK if the tory scum get their way.

Worst month since I had 100 images 10 years ago, to date July has had 10 zero days and the other days are not much better. 5 other agencies are beating SS, how the mighty have fallen (for me anyway).

Just a lame comment about the state of SS for me.

Any idea why I don't see sales!

Yuk. This concept is already out there on all those "logo contest" websites, where buyers get thousands of hours of work and hundreds of drafts to choose from for a few dollars. IStock also did it for a while for vectors (can't remember what it was called). Anyway, sucks hard for contributors.

Unless I am misunderstanding (which I just realised I could well be!) and the request only goes to the one contributor? In that case it is not a bad idea, but I suspect if it was implemented it would end up being like above, with requests being posted publicly and contributors competing. It would be good for the client and agency with only us poor mugs getting the sh*ft so bound to happen.

You're thinking of spec work, but that seems different than what Sepia100 implies. This sounds more like assignment work (one-on-one) where the contributor learns more about the needs of a certain buyer and the buyer can communicate what he's looking for.

I might fill in the survey later today.


That's just the usual client / photographer relationship probably with a minuscule budget!

AS site needs a lot of work to get the functionality that FT had, still find it the most user unfriendly of all the MS sites.

Not a single sale since the Getty tie-in. Had about 20 sales before, the highest being $66.50 net. How things change!

I'm seeing the same very slow Feb after Jan which was my BME for downloads and $ after 9 years with Fotolia.

Everything is far too large, any way reduce the size of everything and crop out all the white space. The sooner this fashion is out of date the better. Don't even start on the keyword list!
