I had two sales of 0,08 (!) each yesterday! It's starting to look like Istock at SS. Sorry. This should have been posted in another thread.

Two SODs 30cent each yesterday. That's more than 25% less of an already meagre 38ct. Well SS has now officially turned its coat from bright blue to dark grey

I have uploaded a few to Eyeem to test the water but I am not sure how the reviewing works. I know that the reviewing for Getty takes a few weeks and that they ask if you want your image at Getty but how does it work for Eyeem itself? How do I see if my images are for sale? When I click on my images it doesn't say it's for sale but maybe that's because I see the image from my own account. Do they give you info if your images are for sale or when they are rejected? I tried to go to the Marketplace but that link doesn't work. Anyone cares to tell me how it works?

Thanks, Sean.

I just entered EyeEm but I was so stupid to click a button so I receive every mail concerning other images who have the same tags. I don't want to receive a hundred emails about images in the same tags. What do I do to avoid this? And how long does it take to know if the images are accepted at the EyeEm site? I have uploaded about 15 images.
Hope to hear something.

No, it's still there but they change things quite often. In your portfolio, click on your image and on the right under details you'll find your pulse

Thanks, but I already upgraded to a Plus account (and paid for it :P, no freebee here)

I'm on 500pix and have sold two images when I had about 150 in my portfolio. I want to upload a lot more but I can't seem to find if you can upload directly to prime. I always upload via 500pix and submit then to license to sell. Is it possible to upload directly to 500prime? Does anyone know?

Hi, anyone selling over there? I have about 150 image up and want to upload more but I don't see any sales. At least not on twitter. I just got in this week's Picfair Picks but I have no idea if this helps.
If you sold anything the last week please let us know. I'm curious.

Hi, I finally deleted all my images at Deposit yesterday (still had some old ones in my portfolio) and asked to close my account and pay my remaining 36 dollars.
I received an answer this morning: 'Unfortunately, it is technically impossible to withdraw an amount less than a minimum amount. Are you sure you want to delete an account?" My answer was: 'Yes, I want nothing to do with Deposit photos anymore and you now also demonstrate that Deposit is nothing more than a bunch of thieves. Goodbye.
I honestly don't understand why people still stay over there. Get out and run as fast as you can!

Thanks for the reaction Shady Sue. I don't like to put my images on Facebook too much (or on other social media) as I read that every image put on Facebook then belongs to Facebook. I never understand why so many just give their images away like this. How did you do you sponsering?

123RF / Re: Have to log in every time I go to the site
« on: June 25, 2014, 02:01 »
I can't even get 123rf to open anymore. The last few days I get a message that 'this website has a 'omleidingslus' (dutch). Translated it has something to do with redirected. I can't get into the site on my computer. On my Ipad I can.

I have 875 images/art on FAA but haven't sold anything except one small postcard about a year ago. I have absolutely no clue why I don't sell when I see what does but I must do something wrong.

ss should sand a very polite e mail to  contributors opted in and ask them... very very politely - to opt out

Don't opt out, walk out. Vote with your feet and leave FT. I did and I'm happy I did. Protest means nothing to FT it makes no difference to FT. If there's a real strike and people leave, it will matter. But people are week and needy and will take money like prostitutes, complain they are being used and underpaid. Leave is the way to show them. Forum messages and clicks, oh I bet they are scared of us writing more messages here. Kill the snake, if you cut off it's head. No pictures nothing to sell they die.

This is the only thing to do! If an agency is this devious the only respond that has an impact is leaving. Just opting out of DPC isn't enough. I have been with Fotolia for seven years, have deleted many images a year or two ago and now made the final move and I'm happy about it. Looking forward towards other healthier sites.

It took my a few mails to close my account at Fotolia. They appeared to misunderstand me and thought I wanted out of DPC. They wanted to know what they had done that made me want to close. Finally they understood I really wanted out of Fotolia and closed my account. Bye, Bye!

I just noticed Monkey business is still there. He has a huge portfolio: 35.332. Pressmaster (45,609),Ollyi (17,731), Auremar (97,070) !
They don't care or they don't know. Those 4 would make a difference of nearly 200.000!

I started deleting images years ago when FT showed to be cheap. Also haven't uploaded files for years (apart from a few just to see how FT evolved) I just deleted all my last selling images. I still have some left but they will go. My guess is that when an agency is this dishonest they will not suddenly go the other way. Not much good will come from them.Just run from there and don't look back!

46 / Re: Lack of Sales on DT for March
« on: April 07, 2014, 10:25 »
Yes, I referred to april. I made 6 (!) sales so far this month. Fortunately there were two credit sales but all in all this is very disappointing. I usually had a payment each month but  the last months I hardly make it in two months. For me DT is getting worse and worse. But hopefully things turn around..

No sales this month. Nothing! I have about 5500 files ther and this has never happened before. My fourth day into April and I still have a 0 on my earnings balance. I guess I'll have to stop uploading for a while. It's not worth it. March turned out to be bad also. What's going on there?

« on: February 25, 2014, 08:19 »
It does matter. We have different tax laws and I pay here. I do not have to pay tax in the US, I don't need to pay in Germany. Very strange.

I used to upload some images each week (very slow submitting system) and when I wanted to get paid I got paid but had to pay more tax than when I get paid by SS and the likes. I'm living in the Netherlands, they are German. We are both in Europe, I pay my taxes here but they told me it was necessary. I don't upload anymore..

My European sales are way behind my usual sales. The rest of the world did fine yesterday. Today only one(!) sale so far. Usually I have 12 to 15 by now.
