General Stock Discussion / Re: Anyone using Payoneer?
« on: December 09, 2014, 04:31 »
You need to associate your card to payoneer partners, who are offering payoneer as payment option. As per my knowledge presently dreamstime, pond5, 123rf, depositphoto, veer, graphicriver have payoneer payment option.

Go the website of the partner who you would like to sign up with,  for eg 123rf, Choose Payoneer as your payment option, on the sign up page, click the button that says, Already applied for a Payoneer account? Verify your username and password associated with your Payoneer My Account. This process also need your card no. Following is detail procedure from payoneer blog.

Login to 123rf goto "My Account"   >  "Update your Profile"  > "Personal Information"   >
"EDIT : Photographer Details (Photographers only"
when you choose option payoneer and proivde your payoneer email address, clicking on save will automatically take you to linking card to 123rf site, as mentioned above.

Payoneer US payment service will be needed to withdraw Skrill payment to payoneer card.
Apply for US payment service, on approval you will receive your US account information, add this bank information to your skrill account. For further detail check folowing link

From 27th Sep 2014, Skrill no longer sending amount in dollar to banks of Pakitan, Bangladesh and Eygpt as per their following email.

We would like to inform you that US bank withdrawals to Bangladesh, Pakistan and Egypt can no longer be made from Saturday 27th September. Once dollar payments come to an end, you will be able to withdraw funds in any of our supported currencies other than US dollars.

We are exploring a number of new options to offer you faster and more cost effective transfers. Any new methods of payment will be published on our website and will be listed in the withdraw section of your Skrill account so please look out for more information."

Email and users discussion:-

Skrill first convert dollar into euro then sending money to these countries and applying 4% conversion fee. Paypal is not available in Pakistan and Bangladesh. 

@Cesar do you have euro account at skrill or they convert your SS dollar into euro? what country are you from?  Any skrill users from other countries have received such email? 

This might be useful, I don't use the Adobe for keywording I use Breeze Browser Pro.

Write back if it works!  :)

Thanks Uncle Pete for great script link. It can add and replace keyword without any problem. I also have to replace text in description. Another problem is that length of find and replace words are not equal. I have change word drawing to illustration in hex editor, which corrupt and remove all text from description field. May be due to complexity of finding and replacing text in xmp data, bridge has only finding text but can't replace them.  Anyway I am still searching for solution.

Thanks Lightrecorder for your reply. My images are save in different folders.  I have copied some of them to temp folder and in bridge selected them all, clicked on file info. Keywords are editable but description and title text boxes showing text "multiple values". My description are different but all has drawing instead of illustration, which I want to replace. 

Choosing properties > detail from Windows explorer also showing multiple value of title and description. My main concern is not keyword but to replace word in description field.

I have to replace word "drawing" with word illustration which is embed/saved in my 500+ images. Doing manually in bridge is very time consuming and tedious job. I search net very hard to find any IPTC metadata edit tool which can do following task but fail to find any such tool.

1. find and replace text in title, description and keyword in IPTC data of image
2. Can search in multiple folders
3. batch process all files

Most of the metadata edit tool are working on one image at a time.  Also tried some hex editors which can find replace text in one file at a time.  Bridge can find images with specified text but there is not command or option for replacing such text.

Software namely far works great with text file. I tried it on some dummy jpg and it has successfully replaced string but also corrupt these image header, making these images useless

My friend wants to purchase 3d rendered 26 alphabet images from shutterStock. He his freelance graphic designer and want to sell final composed image to their clients with text or message which their clients will provide. 

He wants to know what type of licence he should need for it. Can he purchase hi res images using monthly subscription plan or he should purchase extended licence or copyright licence for each file.  He will also contact shutterstock support.

I contact them but as usual they replied that it is an international transaction and subject to intermediate bank charges.

Is there any agency, where only vectors and hand drawings are available for sales.

Firefox. Also using 10 other useful addon with it and still running faster. Chrome belongs to google and using lot of system resources, therefore uninstall chrome.

Images are not visible in our profile after deletion. How can customer can purchase a file, when it has been deleted and not visible.

Dont know, what happened to deleted images which are added in lightboxes

That is a good question because they are supposed to delete them!

Still having them is leaving anyones files that were supposedly deleted available to anyone at anytime for anything they want!!!!!!!

Something is fishy with this statement!!!

Fotolia keeps images available for 3 months after deletion for customers who light-boxed images and need to purchase them. Images are permanently deleted after 3 months. We all agreed to this when we signed up.

Thanks EmberMike for clarification

I deleted all my files from fotolia few days ago, today received email that if I wish, they will put all my files back.

Is fotolia keeping our hi-res files, even if we delete it.?

Following is email from them.

 We're sorry to see you have recently removed some files from your portfolio.
If you change your mind please remember that you can just send us a ticket and we'll put all your files back online. However, this must be done within the next 30 days.
Also, we would like to remind you that you can choose to opt in or opt out your images from DPC in your photographers' parameters.
We hope to see you back soon and will be doing all to grow your income.

Kind Regards,

Hi to all.
Just for inspiration:
There was my portfolio on fotolia 6469.
It became 70.
These 70 I save for tomorrow to take a part in D-Day.

For thothe who trusts in the button - I wrote to fotolia 8 letters with a request to remove my photos and my account from a fotolia. At first to me wrote think again, bla, bla, and now in general ceased to answer. So make your own desigion to stay on fotolia or not. I have already made.
Good luck to all.
Appreciate your work and your time.

I have left only 1 image for tomorrow for participating in D-Day.  Bye Bye fotolia.

I already deleted my 700+ images from fotolia on 28/4/2014 and yesterday received following email from fotolia.

Dear contributor,
You probably heard that we have launched Dollar Photo Club . We would like to share with you what we aim to do at Fotolia with Dollar Photo Club (DPC) and how it works. Lots of information have been circulated and first we would like to lay out the facts, so you can take the best informed decision. Whatever that decision might be we will always respect it and should you wish to opt out from DPC or stay, you now simply need to select the right option here.
Here are the facts about Dollar Photo Club

    The offer
        Dollar Photo Club is a subscription model. Clients register and pay with their credit card, subscribing for a monthly or yearly rolling contract. Renewal rate so far has been close to 90% meaning people use it as a real subscription
        Price per image is $1 for a standard license, which means up to 5x times higher than the daily-quota or monthly-quota subscriptions sold by main actors on the market nowadays
        Dollar Photo Club payouts are the same than any subscription at Fotolia and basically depend on your rank. Payouts range from 25 cents to 40 cents, which is well in line with the market
        Dollar Photo Club sales count towards your ranking at Fotolia, increasing your level of commission. Being part of Dollar Photo Club will increase both your sales AND your commission level
        At Dollar Photo Club, contrary to standard subscriptions, unused downloads never expire. That is a very different model than standard subscriptions, where agencies get all the money from unused downloads. As a result, DollarPhotoClub is a subscription model where a higher percentage of money spent goes to the photographer.
        Photos at Dollar Photo Club are sold under a standard commercial license, with a recent update limiting the print-runs to just 500k, inline with the market. Full licence terms can be seen here:
        All Dollar Photo Club licenses are mono-seat and do not grant any extended rights
    Extended license (to come)An extended license will be added shortly that should be very similar to Fotolias in term of pricing, and payments to contributors.

Why did we launch Dollar Photo Club?

At Fotolia, our aim is to take microstock to the next level: going after the millions of companies around the world who don't purchase yet any license for the images they use, especially in new markets.  We estimate to millions of downloads a day what could be the market tomorrow. That's why we have launched DPC and we spend lot of time, efforts and money in educating markets and promoting your images.  We truly believe that the stock market is only at an early stage and we need you to build a sustainable win-win business profitable to all of us.
From monitoring of customer spend on Dollar Photo Club since we began trading three months ago we have confirmed that client spending has been consistently higher, than traditional on-demand client spend in an entire year. We firmly believe this proves how a simple affordable offer helps to increase usage and spend, all of which is good for the market. By converting illegal users of images to paying clients, the microstock market ten times bigger imagine that! This is what Dollar Photo Club wants to achieve.

Please be assured that we highly appreciate your trust and are absolutely aware that this business would be nothing without the hard work, creativity and trust of all of you.

You have been one of the first to put your trust in the microstock model; hopefully you will trust our belief in the potential of the microstock market to grow and flourish to ten times its current size.

Thank you
The Fotolia Team

Today I have deleted my 700+ files manually. I download and tried MicrostockSubmit free version, but did'nt found  "Remove fotolia images.

Anyway, for speed up manual deleting process, I used following method.

1. In firefox, open your fotolia "manage my files" web and set file view to 25

2. Zoom out 3 time using keyboard shortcut Ctrl++  so you can see "delete this file" button without scrolling. This command is in firefox View menu --> Zoom  --> zoom out.

3. Right click on delete link and open in new tab (I opened 25 tabs from first manage files page)

4. Click on delete this file button and use alt+tab to goto next tab. (shift+alt+tab will navigate in reverse order) 

5. Finally press ctrl+0 to reset page zoom to default. This command is under Firefox view menu --> Zoom  --> Reset
