...also the review times is ridiculously fast, uploaded a batch, set my timer on the phone, it took 40 seconds and the review was done! ...

I wish mine did that. Sometimes it takes days, but just for a reminder, reviews used to be days and many days and everyone complained, because it was so important that their latest "stock photo" of some sliced vegetables, a handshake or girl with a headset, was so important, and they had to be online right away.  :)

I always said, what's so important about the next upload, except news and editorial of course, that a picture of an egg and toast, that hasn't been in someones portfolio for buyers since 15 years ago, just has to be there, right now, today? Really?

Yes, I'd like Editorial to be fast tracked and isolated food to be side tracked for a week at minimum. LOL

...i know it took days before, but now it is crazy fast (EU)Austria, but what worries my is that these "express" reviews will place the images in "the Void" never to be downloaded or seen by anyone  ;D

Try (Cortex Camera app) it uses multiple exposures to combine one final image in jpeg or even dng, it is the same like on the sony slr "Handheld twilight mode"

Nothing similar lately. Could be spam, or not..
But i remember once i've been contacted by someone who found a photo of mine on Depositphotos. He wanted to buy directly from me. I've emailed him the picture and he sent me money. Cash in an envelope by post :D

...you should have sent him the picture also in an envelope by post

I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, in order
to take additional steps with respect to the national emergency declared
in Executive Order 13692 of March 8, 2015 (Blocking Property and Suspending Entry of Certain Persons Contributing to the Situation in Venezuela),
as amended, as relied upon for additional steps taken in subsequent Executive
Orders, and in light of the continued usurpation of power by Nicolas Maduro
and persons affiliated with him, as well as human rights abuses, including
arbitrary or unlawful arrest and detention of Venezuelan citizens, interference
with freedom of expression, including for members of the media, and ongoing
attempts to undermine Interim President Juan Guaido and the Venezuelan
National Assemblys exercise of legitimate authority in Venezuela, hereby

Speaking about human rights abuses, arbitrary and unlawful arrests and detention, etc, etc, he has no problems with the Saudi King and his government killing American residents, chopping and dissolving their bodies...  >:(

I just had a sale and it says something new (25% royalty).

By chance I came across this article on wine from June last year in the Smithsonian magazine:


I think that their use of a free photo from Pixabay (pity that the meniscus of the wine is not horizontal!) also tells us that decining sales of traditional microstock may also have to do with 'free'. Before 'free', reputable magazines relied on SS etc as their first port of call for images. Now they first go to 'free' and if they can't find what they want, they then go to the regular MS agencies.

I have no doubt that many other image users also do similar. (No doubt the reason that SS and Adobe see fit to sponsor Pixabay with ads...which suggest that if the client can't find what he wants at Pixabay they should go to SS or Adobe).

Who upload on Pixabay images and videos and gives them away for free?
