$5.34 - Took a minute to figure out where this amount resided.

Had a $65.16 image sale today. Rare for me but I'll take it.

Sales have increased for me as well in the past couple of weeks.

Agree, too many rejections at Adobe lately. It happens with every agency once in a while.

Well, there's a simple thing to do: stop uploading for a couple of months and wait for things to return to normal. This is what I always do.

I don't post very much but just had 4 out of 4 rejected for "quality issues". That's a first, for me, as my acceptance rate is well over 90%. Frustrating to say the least.

Great stuff. Thanks Mat.

Excellent image.

Every time there's an announcement like this, there's always skepticism from contributors. But the most important part that everyone seems to miss, is that they said they're confident it will result in more revenue... they didn't say who is going to be the recipient of this additional revenue. I have no doubt that this will result in more revenue. For iStock. They wouldn't have implemented it otherwise... they just never mentioned that it would result in more revenue for us lot. Keep that in mind when you're all posting "they promised us more revenue" a month, six months, a year down the line. They didn't.

Yep, A lie of omission is still a lie

Thanks for the quick response Mat. I was able to generate a password and successfully upload via FileZilla. Core FTP didn't work for some reason.

Getting this error at contributor account login:

Yep, browser wise. FTP's working for me though.

Yes, it's been a problem for some time now and, as usual, they seem largely uninterested in what is probably
a simple fix.

Pond5 don't as far as I can see...
Pond5 accepts editorial unless something has changed recently.

No joy.

Well that's disappointing.

Dismal May and so far, June.

I understand your frustration as they're extremely fussy with editorial content. I guess you'll have to decide if they're worth the effort. This, among all the other shenanigans is why I'm waiting for account closure.

Yes, especially with Chrome.

Working fine, for me, yesterday and so far today.
