Adobe's criteria for blurred images:

"Motion blur can be used to convey speed and motion in an image or video. When you use motion blur, ensure that the main subject is sharp and in focus."

I don't mind ordering keywords. But selecting 7 most relevant keywords would be an improvement instead of ordering. Their most relevant search results probably work way much better than shutterstock which constantly shuffles all images if they are relevant or not.

I would like to see all features everyone mentioned at the contributor landing page like shutterstock has. If i wanna go deeper i should go from there.

General Stock Discussion / Subjective Keywords
« on: December 26, 2018, 17:10 »

I have seen many people using subjective adjectives as keywords.

Since i have been working on vector backgrounds lately, I would like to hear your opinions on subjective keywords especially using for backgrounds like "cool", "beautiful", "stylish", "creative" etc.

Do we have any data these keywords are used in searches a lot? What is your practice on using them? Do you think using them might be considered spam?

it was interesting to see the ranking and how many images other contributors add per week. I used to check   the site every week. Bu i agree with some others that it is not something i would pay for.

Yes, it is a very simple process. When you select payoneer, it will ask you to sign in payoneer in a small window. When it is done, payoneer is selected as your payment option.

thank you...

Thank you obj owl for the reply.


I have seen many people selling images of places (Louvre Museum, Eiffel Tower night shots etc.) as posters, framed prints so on, while they can only be sold under editorial license at stock photo agencies.

Can someone clarify if it is ok to sell those images as products at POD sites?

This march is almost same as last march, eventhough the size of the portfolio is doubled.

Could you put back the copy button to where it was? That being under the three dot menu is not very usefull from my experience.

BME for me only because of one large sale by Getty. Sales less than 10 cents are more than ever though.

In last three months, IS has passed Shutterstock in both downloads, earnings and average royalty per image in my case.

I have been using xpiks and it has really been helping on my workflow. Thanks for that.

I am glad to hear you are working on video submission. Could you also make it possible to see editorial images when searching images for keywording?

There is a big difference between "Christmas in a warm climate palm tree with Christmas lights and Christmas gifts cartoon. EPS 10 vector."
and "Christmas Christmas Christmas Christmas Christmas Christmas Christmas Christmas Christmas Christmas Christmas Christmas Christmas Christmas Christmas Christmas Christmas Christmas Christmas Christmas Christmas Christmas"

If you can't see that then you are missing the point.

They are obviously different. But they have same intention.

Second one is just crazy.

in the attributes, when you select that you don't have a model or property release, the License type changes automatically to "Rights Managed" and is sold as Editorial.

+you need to restrict the image for advertising, indoor display , etc.. worldwide.

iStockPhoto.com / How to upload editorial videos on ESP?
« on: October 01, 2016, 17:08 »

I am sorry if this was discussed before.

Is it possible to submit editorial rf videos on ESP? I watched all the training videos and looked for an option for editorial on the site. But I couldn't see anything for editorial rf videos.

Can someone tell how to do that?

Thanks in advance :)

Software / Mpeg Streamclip Help
« on: August 03, 2016, 15:12 »
Hello everyone,

I have a problem with converting movies with photo jpeg codec by using mpeg stream clip..

Selecting "export to quick time" and "apple photo jpeg" codec creates a output three times bigger than the original movie size. I am attaching a screenshot of this.

When i select "export to other format" then select "quicktime movie" then select photo jpeg codec creates an output as big as the original movie size. I am also attaching a screenshot of this.

Converting with h.264 works fine. I get small size converted movies. Bu i haven't managed to get small size movies with photo jpeg codec with mpeg stream clip.

Is there anyone who knows what i am doing wrong? Any suggestions?

I don't even know if it is possible but are you planning to add keywording option for video?
