So did u install program successfully and got this message when running it?
Or did u get this message while installing ?

Screenshot of exception window is welcome ;)

Yes installation was successful. Only if I click the button "Run StockSubmitter" I get this message.

For install you need Administrator acces, just click on file with right mouse button and select Use Administrator rule

hi, I tried this method for installing cause I had also a problem during installation.
The following message appears:

"Caught unhandled exeption"

I am using Windows 7

Congratulations. They have the worst support from all agencies. Fotolia is history for me  ;D

in Germany its already well-known that fotolia is not a trustworthy partner.
I also deleted my account at fotolia couple of months ago!

Shutterstock.com / Re: SS' part of earnings???
« on: April 04, 2010, 18:45 »
How does SS make any money from 25-a-day subscriptions when they pay $0.25 per image to a novice contributor and even more to those who have been selling above a certain level? Subcription of $249 per 750 images (25 a day, 30 days) equals $0.33 per image.

its the same thing that "photospin" is doing. They assume that not every customer will use/need the upload limit.

Oh, I got 3 enhanced downloads last month... 3 x 28,00$ = 84,00$
Thats my new record, I am happy  ;D

I hope that will continue in the future :) What about you? Have you got also more enhanced downloads recently?

I believe you can't close your account for 5 years

after 2 years

Computer Hardware / Re: Using a Laptop for Image Processing?

Does anyone use a laptop for image processing and uploading to microstock?

of course, I do it from the beginning. However I calibrated it.

Do you actually enjoy producing Microstock style images?

to be honest... I am getting sick of pictures isolated on white  ::) in the future I want to produce more creative pictures with on location backgrounds.

Repeated rejection from iStockphoto

just keep on trying... i needed 4 times to get in  :)

Which ONE company would you contribute to as a newbie?

shutterstock, photospin, istockphoto, fotolia and dreamstime. The others are just a waste of time (my opinion)

Can I really earn a full time income from microstock?

I think its possible but not very easy.

to be honest, I dont know how it works (photographer payoff) but its my second best selling agency after shutterstock.
It has overtaken (regarding my revenue) fotolia within 2 months, wow!

Is Dreamstime dying?

interesting thread... my sales at dreamstime also dropped down since the last 2-3 months?!

If you started before 2007 - iStock is your #1

shutterstock is my best selling, however istockphoto is getting better and better.

that sound good. I also thought about to use this camera especially  for landscape shots and for architecture (pros: focal length, details, small & lightweighted in comparison to a DSLR)

but only a max. size of 2640 x 1760 pixels (RAW)  could be to less for selling pics through micro.  ???

hi there, what do you think? It might has to less pixels

As you may know I am a contributor to Clipartof.com as are other members on this forum.

This site is pro-artist (The others that offer 25 a download are just a ripoff in my opinion) so I wish to assist them.

I need to help promote them. They are a low budget. hence the Google ads on the site. (I'd rather them have those than take a higher percentage of my sales)

They don't have an affiliation program...yet and they don't promote with Google ads. (Again these options would cut into artists percentages.)

Any Ideas??? How can we promote this site?

Cheers Dennis

direct marketing is a quite efficient tool
