Ok, thank you.
I'm deleting all my pending files. ESP is getting me enough headaches, I don't need to get more stress from useless agencies.

General Stock Discussion / Re: Pond5 pending review times

I decided to start uploading because of the poll results, looks like better then 123RF, Alamy, Dreamstime, ecc., and I'm already selling on those agencies.
So is that poll old?

General Stock Discussion / Pond5 pending review times
« on: March 12, 2017, 04:22 »
Hi,
I'm trying to bring my portfolio to Pond5, so I tried first to upload a dozen of photos. This was about a month ago (maybe more).
Since then my files are still "pending review"!
Is that normal on Pond5? I thought iStock was slow, but Pond5 seems even worse!  :o

Hi,
I can't find anywhere, since a couple of months, my partner program sales stats on iStock.
What's happened?
On ESP I'm getting no stats, so I'm still watching the iStock stats to understand what's going on with my photos. But only regular sales are reported, partner program ones seem to have disappeared!
This migration to ESP is driving me nuts.

Could someone point me in the direction of the latest version, please?

Me too. The author's page seems to have been deleted.

Shutterstock.com / SS Siteboost doesn't work anymore
« on: October 09, 2012, 15:09 »
Hi everyone!
I've recently bought a new computer and, I don't know why, now I can't use SS Siteboost. I've tried to download it again but it doesn't work.
Does anyone knows of a similar plugin?

FTP problem solved: in Filezilla I was using my login as user instead of my ID.

General Stock Discussion / Re: RF photo in a contest
« on: August 18, 2012, 09:11 »
Copyright questions are not mentioned in the fine print, I've written them an e-mail for more details.
Anyway, seems that they've got a very small database of RF pictures about my italian region (Apulia).

General Stock Discussion / RF photo in a contest
« on: August 18, 2012, 03:50 »
Hi everybody,
I'm thinking on joining a contest in which winning photos will be used on a calendar that will be distributed for free in some local events.
My question is: can I use a photo that I'm selling on microstock agencies?

12
One more question: should I remove  (and re-upload) also all the old photos with the removed MR? That would be a lot of work and those photos would go to a lower level.
For now I've asked the support to just replace all MRs the the oldest one.

You need to get an MR from each session for your own records .  At DT they link all the photos of a certain model  so need them to be all attatched to the same release.   Just upload one release, any release you have for the model and link all photos to that release.  In the case of children, when they change age catagory you need to upload a new release and lnk any further photos to that release.
It's not nearly as complicated as you think and a lot easier than uploading a new release each time.
Basically it is the same as at most other sites except IS and Veer and possibly others that I don't upload to.

So DT doesn't care if a MR is related to another shooting session? Can I attach a release uploaded one year ago to new files with the same model?
Which other agencies work this way? IS asks for a "Shoot description" field in the MR.

Not only do they not care, but they require it.  Dreamstime wants one release per model period, even if it is years apart.  I believe they make exceptions for child models where their looks will change over a number of years but for adults, one release is the way they want it.  sigh ...

Istock is on the other side, where they want one release per shoot, always.  This is what I have in my workflow and this is what I submit to all the other agencies as well.  This is also what I feel makes sense.  A model is giving you permissions to use their photo from that PARTICULAR shoot, not for all shoots in the future forever... so a different release should be submitted for each shoot.

I totally agree with you! That's the reason why I really didn't understand what DT was talking about on that rejection.
Anyway we're compelled to do as they want, but at least we now we're acting right with our models.

Hi everybody!
I'm having problems on having photos accepted because:

"Please ensure that you don not use different MR documents for the same model. If you uploaded more than one MR document for the same model, please email a list to support with the IDs and names of the releases you wish to keep and the IDs and names of the releases that should be removed".

I've never heard of this until now, so I contacted the support and they answered me that "we don't accept more than one model release per model, unless the model changes age category group" and "we kindly ask you to email a list to support with the ID's and names of the releases you wish to keep and the ID's and names of the releases that should be removed and than resubmit your files".

I'm very confused! I thought that every shooting session needs a different MR, even if the model is the same. If I've understood what they want I have to upload a new MR for each new shooting session and after the approval I have to remove all the old MR of that model, kepping just the last one.
Am I right? I'm going nut with this thing!  ???

Thanks click_click!

I've written to all of those sites, but none of them have answered me.
What do you suggest to do? It's the first time that someone ignores my message.

18
This is not allowed!

Write them and tell them to remove your image immediately.

Most microstock agencies don't allow web use of more than 800 pixels on the long side. This would be a clear violation.

If you have that image on Shutterstock I would insert the link of the image usage terms so they can review it.

Otherwise let them know that since this constitutes a violation that you will inform Shutterstock about it and also inform the web host who will then remove the image for them.

That should put enough pressure on them to get it taken down quickly.

Good luck!


Thanks for your answer!
I wrote them an e-mail following your advice, so let's wait for an answer.
I found the same problem on these sites too:

Now I'm going to contact them all!

General Stock Discussion / Microstock photo as wallpaper?
« on: May 03, 2012, 04:39 »
Hi everybody,
I found this site http://www.maxisciences.com/chocolat/wallpaper that allows downloading pictures in very big size. The photo with orange and chocolate is mine and I'm selling it on microstock agencies. Can they do that?

123RF / Where are my sold credits?
« on: May 02, 2012, 05:51 »
Hi everybody,
how can I see the number of credits I've sold? In the "earnings" page I only can see downloads and earnings, but not credits.
I need that info to understand what may be my new royalties in 2013.

Alamy.com / Re: Why does it take so long to clear?
« on: March 07, 2012, 04:12 »
Same problem here: I've got an uncleared sale on 12 december, but also all the next sales are still uncleared.
Do I have to wait for that 12 december clearing before seeing the money of other sales? Are sales cleared chronologically or are they independent one from another?

Alamy.com / Alamy RF prices
« on: February 02, 2012, 04:54 »
Hi everyone,
I'm starting to sell something on Alamy and I'm surprised for the prices. On Alamy I sell only RF photos that I sell also on other RF agencies, but Alamy sells them at incredibly high price! Can anyone explain me how is it possible?
I've tried to read Alamy guidelines but I can't find info about this difference from other RF sites. Why a customer is paying 70$ for a RF picture that can pay a lot less on Shutterstock?
By the way, I'm glad that this happens  ;D

Hi,

Can you help me?
