General Stock Discussion / Shutterstock acquires Turbosquid
« on: January 26, 2021, 07:38 »
Shutterstock is acquiring Turbosquid:

Since some artists are contributing to both Shutterstock and Turbosquid I think this may be of interest.

Has anyone got experience selling After Effect Templates on Pond5? How are sales? How does it compare to Videohive?

Thanks for any help.

Pixmac / Pixmac no longer a partner?
« on: January 17, 2011, 11:06 »
I just received this email:

Recently you asked us why you have your images with We had contracts with Dreamstime and Fotolia, but those contracts are no longer in operation. However, if you would like to to profit from Pixmac sales anyway, then now is the best time to upload your portfolio to Pixmac!

We guarantee a fast review of your images and if you are uploading the same portfolio as you have at Fotolia or Dreamstime (and let us know), this will make the approval process even faster. Premium support will be included we promise.

Good luck with your images!

It seems that Fotolia and Dreamstime cancelled their agreements with Pixmac. Anyone got the same email?

Veer / Vector uploads need to be easier
« on: July 01, 2009, 11:13 »
There really needs to be a way to upload jpegs with IPTC data together with the eps files.

Currently you have to enter all descriptions and keywords manually, which is very slow. (The interface is rather cumbersome.)

I have no idea how I should uploads hundreds of vectors this way. It will take me days.

Veer / Some glitches with the website
« on: May 18, 2009, 09:44 »
I have some little problems with the Veer Marketplace website.
- I am located in Germany and the Veer site shows up in german. That is fine most of the time, but occasionally  I would like to see the site in english. But I do not find any way to change the language.                                                   

- If I go to 'marketplace' and check 'Illustrations' and 'marketplace', leaving all other fields unchecked, and search for 'Italy' I get lots of photos instead of illustrations. (Clarification: this happens with the images from the marketplace. It seems to work ok for 'regular' Veer images.)

- There are some images in the search results that only show a white preview. If I click on the description the detail page is shown, but without an image.

I was contacted by /, because they are interested to represent my illustration work.
They claim to be "the world's largest collection of rights-managed illustration" and "the leading global RF illustration brand". Since I am relatively new to the business I never heard of them.

Has anyone got information about them, either as a contributor or a designer?

7 / Any videos?
« on: August 14, 2008, 11:27 »
I tried some searches for videos, like 'people', 'background', 'abstract', 'globe', but never found more than 1 video, if at all. How many videos are there actually on Zymmtrival? Is it even worth uploading?

General - Stock Video / What means 'VJ loop'?
« on: August 08, 2008, 13:39 »
Hi list,

on Pond5 I see videos with the description 'VJ loop'. What is 'VJ' standing for?

9 / Posting on IS forum?
« on: July 26, 2008, 03:17 »
Hi list,

this feels like a very dumb question - but how do you post on the IS foums?
I have registered and logged in, but I can't find any button or link to start a new thread. Is it necessary to be accepted as a contributor? But I think I have seen people asking for advice before they got accepted.

General - Stock Video / Alpha channel in videos
« on: July 26, 2008, 03:07 »
Hi list,

IS has some videos where the description says an alpha channel is included. I am preparing some rendered animations, using png with transparency as output. How can I produce a video which includes the alpha channel? One of those videos on IS uses the Motion JPEG A codec, but it was my understanding that this doesn't support alpha, so I am a bit confused. How is this done?
