I think that they are gone forever... This is very strange if they give up they can at least come here and tell us something IMO.

Maybe this is a dumb question but.. here it goes!
I find some apps on iTunes that use some vector art that I have on stock sites. My question is if this is allow?
Can somebody get a vector from a stock site and use it on a app or game?

I try to sell vectors there (graphic river) and the accept ratio is very low!! They reject all my vectors. Vectors that are in all microstock sites (istock included, imo the best vector site). All that trouble for 25% of 3 or 5$. No thanks.

General Stock Discussion / Re: European trip
« on: June 01, 2011, 05:16 »
Last April i decided to spend some days in Barcelona. I buy a airoplane passage to 27 to 30 of May.
Last week in the TV i saw some news of riots and police charging people that occupy the Catalunya square.

And I read in the internet that i pay special attention in Barcelona for robbery and crime (special in crowded places)

Guess what... the bus let the tourist in Catalunya square when we get out of the aeroport. The square as full of smelly people, rastafari, tribal and people considered "normal". First thing i do when i get from the bus... mingle with the crowd and take some shoot of the square occupation with my DSLR.
Next day Barcelona FC win the champions and people get crazy in the streets with lots of party and drunk people party. Shakira was in town for a concert (more people crazy and drinking)

Problems that i have during this days... 0. Always with my DSLR in my hand.
You will find some poor bustard that need money for food or drug all over the world. The bad luck is if they see you as a potential fix for there problems, but this can append in your street or home town.

Life is the primary cause of death ;) But death is the only thin that we all experience sooner or latter. Dont think much in death because you will not live life.

I live in Portugal and i never had any problems with my DSLR. A very safe place. And i never had problems in Portugal, Spain; France; Netherlands; Italy; germany; Switzerland; Republic Dominican; Tunis; Marrocos and all the places i visit.

My opinion is, take the machine and enjoy the trip and get family photos. If you get lucky you will take some photos for stock that help you pay the trip. In the worst case scenario you will get some great family pictures ;)

I think the greatest danger in southern Europe is bag theft in crowded places rather than from hotels. A few years ago I was in a tourist information office in Nice when a couple of young lads breezed in and, without even breaking stride, grabbed my day-sack from the floor and walked out with it. Fortunately my girlfriend saw them and when I gave chase they quickly dropped it and ran off. They probably weren't in the office for more than 2-3 seconds in total.

A friend was on a business trip and was waiting at Barcelona airport. He had his luggage on a trolley in front of him whilst he viewed the Departures board where a number of flights had been delayed. A bloke tapped him on his left shoulder and started speaking loudly in Spanish whilst gesticuating wildly at the board. When my friend turned towards him to explain he didn't speak Spanish ... someone nipped in from the right and stole his laptop from on top of his luggage. It was a couple of minutes before he realised what had happened by which time the thieves were well away.

Crime usually happens when you least expect it.

I said "good match" because i dont see the game by gools.
Yes they play in the defense.
Yes no one scores.
But this is all strategy, like a chess game. Dont forget that for us is a game but for the people involved is a lot more. Portugal annulled the offensive that Brazil stands for, and Brazil have there mind already in the nex match.
Put your self in the shoes of Carlos Queiros and Dunga!
In the end they both go into the next phase.

Get a Macbook pro. Mac's are pro image machines, end of.

The best buy  :D


I have seen no one that dose the same style as me on the site and so I have no competition from the new artists.

Dont fool your self, you cant find no one with your style but that dont mean that you dont heave competition!
Imagine someone that needs a illustration of a Dog for a mascot... that person heave a idea of buy a dog with your style, then she/her goes to clipart or some other site and type dog in the search and appears all the illustrations of dogs (and dont forget that in her mind they are looking for your type of illustration) but in the process of search the site they find some other dog with a different style but they like it more!!
You as just lost $$$.
This happen to me sometimes as a buyer, sometimes i need some vectors and in my mind i imagine something and when i start search i find something totally different. At the end competition is competition and you have competition!

In my opinion Dennis is eager to promote the site because now he have a lot of Artist Referrals but he also have a lot more of competition. Dennis if i wrong im sorry, but no one gives without received! You think that you can make some extra $ by referring some artists but that have a price, more competition to you!

I dont want to make a personal  attack to Dennis, and i understand the argument of make extra with referral program, but please be honest about it!

All the best for you.
