No sign of money yet! GRRRR!!!

It is possible trick your email software into misreporting the sender somehow though, I have had emails reporting to be from @paypal.com when they were obvious scams

Yes, you can change the sender, but it the action needs a reply to the email, the scammers cannot have any benefit.
Scammers usually include some bogus link to follow, not email reply.

253
Why would you think this is a scam if the recipient has a @123rf.com adress? What would the scammer benefit from this?

and why would a big stock agency ask a contributor to send one file BY EMAIL!!

How shoud they do it then?

someone managed to add the @123.com after his/her email address

You mean @123rf.com ?

Anyone got their money yet?

(yes, this is very bad!)

Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they're here to stay
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Suddenly, I'm not the shooter I used to be
My earnings are disappointing me
Oh, yesterday came suddenly

Why are my earnings down
I don't know, they wouldn't pay
I did try my best
Now I long for yesterday

Yesterday, stock was such an easy game to play
Now I need to sell my gear on ebay
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Why are my earnings down
I don't know, they wouldn't pay

There is some truth to this and because of that it's mildly funny. But I can't understand how a company that manufactures SLRs can use this for marketing purposes, they don't seem to rate their customers very highly.
(I'll stick with my Canon :))

261
BTW, doesn't the agencies have any responsibility? It's THEM who accepted the images even if they contained trademarked elements...?

262
I have no idea why a glass company wants to shoot themselves in the leg. It's not like you are stealing their designs, you are providing them much exposure, perhaps even more than their own advertising campaigns. They should be sending you free glasses to use in photoshoots.

They should be happy for the free exposure instead of trying to squeeze some pennies from photographers. Very short-sighted and greedy actions, but that's how the world seems to work nowdays :(

7 dollar a month? You cant spend more than 5 minutes per month on that site otherwise its not even remotely worth it. If you  do, its costing you money.

5 minutes and 7 dollars... that's a healthy 84 dollars per hour...

* Shoot better images.
* Submit bigger file sizes.

It's simple math. It has nothing to do with the file size or compression rate.
1500 x 1000 pixels = 1,500,000 pixels (1.5 megapixels, mega = million).
You should make your image larger.

To function, society must have people doing nasty, dull or repetitive jobs so either we all make a contribution to the general good or some of us live the life of Riley by making others do our share of the nasty stuff. Even if you only want to raise fluffy sheep in fields of green(which does contribute to the general good), a consequence of your lifestyle is that someone has to work in an abattoir - and if nobody will do that then you can't raise your lambs. To be a writer  you need printers or computer assembly lines to spread your wisdom and if you write with no interest in publishing, then you need other people to work to pay your bills.

A better philosophy for most of the people would be to start loving the things that they are already doing. To find happiness in little things that already exist.

A very warm and fuzzy video. Too bad the philosophy doesn't hold up in real life. If everyone did what they loved, nobody would clean our toilets. That's the reality and tragedy of life.

I am a full-time photographer. I generally love photography. But I still feel often dissappointed... why? That's because I have too much work and too little money and 90% of the jobs are boring repetition (the 10% is something interesting I LOVE doing, often they are also jobs that doesn't pay much.). So, how do I get rid of the 90% of work and still pay of the bills?

(I still wouldn't trade my job for a 9 to 5 job :))

What do you mean by "western style"? Real looking wood type? Modern day interpretation? Rough or clean?

The "Revival" part applies here, I think.
You MUST draw the font yourself to sell it legally. To rename a font and/or make some changes and sell it as an own design is unethical and illegal!

Here's a great resource for all font-related stuff': http://www.typophile.com/

Photo Critique / Re: Confused about font use
« on: October 06, 2012, 17:29 »
What about the fonts that come with photoshop?  Aren't they generally usable or are there restrictions?

If you have bought your Photoshop I'm 99.99999% sure there is a commercial license for the fonts included.

Photo Critique / Re: Confused about font use
« on: October 06, 2012, 16:54 »
And I'm still a bit confused. Let's say I buy some font. If I sell an image with that font in it, will the buyer have to pay for the font as well?


If the font is a part of a design and the font is converted to outlines/paths it should be OK.

I would still stay away from fonts made by P22, they seem to be a bunch of greedy a*holes http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr-esq/nbc-universal-accused-million-dollar-209599
