Submitting is worst than before. Autofill used to be helpful but now it needs to be done on each photo instead of just automatically.

Buying stolen good and reselling them is illegal, so best tot to publicize that.

Canva / Canva Tax Forms
« on: November 29, 2023, 23:15 »
Canva sent out an e-mail saying we need to re-register for payment methods and submit tax forms.

Re-registering was simple, but the process for tax is:

"Submitting a tax form
Enter and save your payout information. To find out how to set up your payout information, check our article on setting up payments.
Click Submit a tax form.
Click Try our tax form wizard to understand which tax form applies to you (it'll depend on your personal situation)."

BUT, I do not see these buttons to click anywhere! Anybody else having this problem? Or know where they might be found? (It's not under Payments)

Paypal / Re: Paypal new currency conversion
« on: October 31, 2023, 21:11 »
I logged in to check what was happening because I noticed all my payments were being converted to local currency. Under Notifications I saw this message:

Changes to your account
From September 11, 2023, updated Payment Receiving Preferences may impact the currencies that you can receive payments in.
Please review your preference to continue with normal operation of your account.

So, it looks like after the Payment Receiving Preferences was updated, the settings were reset to default.

Paypal / Paypal new currency conversion
« on: October 31, 2023, 01:11 »
Paypal has new currency conversion choices. One choice is to automatically convert money to your local currency. This is the most expensive option (It looks like a much higher conversion percent). So of course PP is making this the default option after the change. I suggest people go  check and if they want to be like it was choose the third option there.

General Stock Discussion / Infringement on Medium
« on: July 24, 2023, 01:21 »
I thought Medium.com had better protocols in place to avoid copyright infringement. This article is using a watermarked Getty image.


Photo Shelter and 500 Pix had similar things didn't they? Didn't work well.

Nimia has a pay tier that allows some perks for sales.

Stock photography is coming to an end has been the most consistent topic on this forum for the last 15 years. And yet, here we are.

I thought I was finally going to get a payout after 10 years but I see they have increased threshold to $60, so it might take another 10 years.

Your tax form has expired and you need to redo it. You need to resubmit tax forms every 3 years.

My sales have been getting better over past year but only enough to compensate for decrease in SS sales.

Maybe he finally did quit forums?

Unlikely, since he didn't post an essay here about it and how his invaluable knowledge will be lost by all.

Wow! Thanks! Nothing like being seen on YouTube to make buyers go "Yes!!! I want to buy from THAT contributor!!!"

Last time I checked the Easy Release one was the only digital MR they accepted.

General - Stock Video / Has Nimia dropped contributors?
« on: May 09, 2022, 04:19 »
I haven't been checking on Nimia or uploaded anything new there for a long time. I tried to log in last week but could not log in. Thought I may have forgotten my password but password recovery says it is sending to e-mail but does not. I can't find any of old content on searches.

Has Nimia done that Videoblocks block thing where they drop a lot of contributors but unlike VB not tell anybody about it? I don't want to jump to conclusions but I can't think of what else may have happened. 

This video about thieves stealing a package is using stolen watermarked photos. I can't report any because none of the photos are mine and SS don't care. Maybe DT will. If you see yours in first 25 seconds, you can report it. I suggest not watching more than that to avoid boosting the video rating.



Yes, it does. I keep forgetting to switch it off so it shuts down my PC while there are still files being uploaded to other sites.

this is interesting; is yours an Mac or Win pc?

this feature never worked for me ... and I would have found it a really handy feature.

Thanks for sharing

I'm using a Windows PC.

123RF / Trends to Upload for September e-mail from 123RF
« on: September 07, 2021, 02:06 »
Just got an e-mail from 123RF for "Trends to Upload for September."

What do you think they mean by that? We know they are not going to review anything uploaded now until January or March. Are they predicting next September's trends?

General Stock Discussion / Telifport, thieves or legit?
« on: June 17, 2021, 03:16 »
Is this a legit site or photo stealing site? They have large unwatermarked thumbnails and a big "Violation Notice" button which makes me think they are dodgy.

I don't need an app. I just count on my fingers. Don't even need all of them.

The only way to get through to them is to breach the trust between them and buyers. I suggest everybody setting up fake accounts and then taking photos of random people who look like they have expensive lawyers and then upload those photos with fake MRs. It won't make us any money, but it could result in a fun sh**storm to watch.

That is horrible. Are you sure it's public to see? Try to log out of your account to make sure it's actually visible to the public ...
Yes, I went out and looked through port.
