Ordinary russian people don't have blame for government decisions.
I llive in Venezuela a socialist country and the US government have made some sanctions on Venezuela. In Cuba have many sanctions from the US, but the government is stiill in power in Cuba. In the end, the most affected are the ordinarie people.

I have the following question: can you upload 3D content for sale on iStock; So far I have limited myself to photography, illustration and vectors. But what about 3D content?



Thanks in advance

Adobe Stock / Re: Selling 3D content on Adobe Stock
« on: January 31, 2022, 21:33 »
hi guys

I'm an Adobe Stock contributor. Until now the content that I have uploaded is photographic and vector but I also want to upload 3D only that I know that the possibility of selling 3D content is limited to a select community selected by the Adobe stock team. How can you apply to be able to sell 3D? I think you have to start, I think, on the Behance platform or something like that.

Does anyone know how it is applied to be able to sell 3D in Adobe stock??


Thank you.
I sell there 3d renders, but not 3d models, i don't know it's possible.

General Stock Discussion / Re: Flat lay photography
« on: January 21, 2022, 14:03 »

Nice, i have made also some flat lay photos, look


Nice useful backgrounds for people to download, and they are flat lays not my angled shots on assorted backgrounds. Even if you sell off most of your equipment, you'll still have a table and a window and props.  8)  Just remember to keep whatever you use for the steady overhead camera mount.

Returning this topic to the OP, yes flat lays for backgrounds and topical images, are a good idea and fairly simple if someone wants to try making some. I haven't really. I appreciate the reminder that there are areas worth working at for diversity in my collections.

Maybe tomorrow?
Well  photos shown are made with flash light and softbox, i'm selling most of my equipment , but i will keep with some gears.  I need money, that the reason i selling my equipment and you know, microstock doesn't give money as in the past.
I hope the images sell well, the first image i sold it on Istock/Getty for $6.

How many dollars cost those backgrounds?

They are usually selfmade.
There are a lot of tutorials out there. Many people use old planks from bulky waste collections or they buy cheap shelves with planks at hardwear stores and paint them to appear old. You can also buy paper printed with old wood pattern.

Dumpster find, flooring sample, I didn't like the fake base on this, which was too light and just doesn't look right. New version, I'll see?



Counter top photo sample from a home improvement store. 8x10 glossy of sand:


I like that he's using natural light from a window. Low cost, nice soft diffused lighting.

Natural light, Formica table top:


Posted board, under a dollar and even if it does cost $2 someplace else, it's a reusable background, small investment compared to all the rest that anyone uses to create stock images?

With all the creatives and open thinking people here, I'm sure anyone can find free or inexpensive backgrounds and accessories, if they try.
Nice, i have made also some flat lay photos, look

Yes. 30$ is right!

And that's $30 accumulated across all sales and agencies, combined. No waiting to reach $100 on DT!

thanks to everyone!

« on: August 19, 2021, 21:11 »
Alamy responded today, saying all payments were made yesterday.

But I have not received mine.

For my 16 years with multiple agencies, this is the first time my payment has gone missing.
I received mine! $57.08.

Thanks for the reply. When did you get yours?

I have not heard anything back from Alamy after reporting that the payment was not received.

Hi

I have a 1.7k port and increasing with Wirestock that gets a few sales a month - had 0 sales in the past 3 weeks or so - totally dried up.

Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing a big drop in sales.

Thanks

Upgrade if it's something you want and can afford.  But if you are using MS for the decision diamond then only you can make that call.  None of us knows how much you make from MS, but my guess is that there are very few who make enough money to use MS as the decision diamond for new gear purchases.  I have a day job.  I buy gear when I want it. If it's expensive, then I budget for it, setting a little aside each paycheck.  I really never buy anything specifically for MS anymore aside from perhaps some cheap props.  My income in MS has gone from about $4k a month to $1k a month and keeps going down.  How could I justify buying new gear for MS with that kind of trend? So from my lens, if I was basing a purchase decision on MS alone, new gear would get nixed.  Your mileage may vary.
$1k a month, woow, that's a lot of money, i make barely almost $50 a month i'm very screwed in microstock, but thanks to God, my main income is not microstock.

Adobe Stock / Re: Adobestock LATAM is selling exclusive briefs
« on: August 15, 2021, 17:35 »
I know... But the woman speaking here works in Adobestock, she cannot be lying :(
But, is she working right now in AdobeStock?, maybe she is an ex employe. Or maybe she is very reckless. :( :(

Hi Mat,

Removing the video and pretend that 'nothing has happened' and 'nothing was said there' is not kind from Adobe.

Thanks for the links, but I have not been able to find in the links provided on your first message the info inside the paid course, like, for example, a masterclass on artistic direction (attached) or the exclusive briefs mentioned in the video by Mariana:


"This call for content is sent to all our collaborators, so please subscribe if you are not recieving it. [...] And this call for content is exclusive to some collaborators (usually the top ones), but what I will do is give it to you (you = to all who paid the subscription) because I am interested in your growth."

WOW, thanks Mariana for being interested only in the growth of those who pay.


Anyways, makes no sense to continue with this discussion if we are going in circles and Adobe's position is negating the facts. I know you did all you could.
 

Enjoy your holidays.
Maybe Stockeros guys are lying saying they have privileged information from Adobe. The only purpose it's selling their courses. Some people use this kind of strategies. :(

Hey Folks,

My equipment is aging but how do I justify buying a new mirrorless dSLR and RF lenses that will set me back about $10,000 plus?  Just a few years ago I would upgraded without a thought but today and the future it seems stupid to spend that kind of money. 

I will keep my old camera and lenses for now...
.
My newer camera is a Canon 60d 18 mp,  i bought it about 2012 year. Besides i have a Canon XT 8.0 mp (bought on 2015) and an old Canon 5D 12,8 mp (bought on 2016). I will never buy a camera again. I don't have money for that. I'm selling some photography accessories for buying some food and paying bills. Microstock is not my main income. I would be nice if i have joined to microstock world in the beginning, because this going down hill.

Hi

 

You are receiving this email as you are due to receive an Alamy payment this month via PayPal.

 

Unfortunately we are experiencing a few issues with PayPal so there will be a slight delay with receiving your payment. Dont worry though, we will be completing the processing of payments by the 18th August.

 

Apologies for the inconvenience.

 

Thanks,

How many days takes Wirestock for processing images?. I sent some image, they are on Status "Processing".
Seems to be very different... my experience:
-> editorial with keywords included are reviewed quickly within a day or two
-> commercial images with keywords included are reviewed within some days
-> images using easy submission can take up to some weeks - I ususally send an email to the support then, which works well

Another experience:
-> upload commercial images using easy submission (keywords done by wirestock) seem to be rejected with a lot higher percentage then images where the keywords are submitted too
Thanks, i believe the process it would be fast. Hope to sell something there!

S, yo creo que el stock es para aprender y tener una motivacin mientras haces fotos. Una vez ya lo dominas... A trabajar en fotografa pero con clientes directamente ;)

Por cierto, yo tambin vendo ms en iStock. Una sorpresa, porque tard ms de un ao en entrar por miedo a las bajas comisiones que haba ledo que daban
Y le salen muchos trabajos en fotografa con clientes no afines al mundo del microstock? De qu pas es usted?
