mcirostock is a big part of my income, i cant just close accounts left right and centre and so it puts me in a difficult place, do i accept what the agencies do, or will i fight back costing me my earnings. i admire people closing their accounts, i just cant, working on plan b takes time as well. but thats what i am doing, slowly trying to decrease the % of earnings from microstock and increase the income elsewehre

i see a little uptick to a normal average week like about 2 years ago, which is a great improvement compared to the car crash it has been. having said that, it will probably fall of a cliff again soon. downward and backwards, that sums it ss up.,

i just got paid, so early, it must be easier for there system to pass through these smaller paymets so they dont need the full 7 days to process. i mean, 50% is the norm these days,

I've been working really hard and saving exclusive images for stocksy to apply so I'm going to make a new portfolio web link to show them ONLY these exclusive files.

I'm still trying to pick the best ones from the sessions to show them. It is hard because I only have this one shot to impress them.

Wish me luck!

You need also to have a social media presence, you need to show active social presence etc. If you dont have that, they might reject you as well

rinder, youve been trying to get out for years now, isnt it time you actually just left,? i mean microstock. seems its not for you, too much frustration

on topic
as for putting your port on every agency, if you have the time, why not. i dont believe in cannibalizing your own sales. a sale lost in one place is a sale gained in the other

told you so

its been explained numerous times, thats probably why they stopped explaining, like talking to a barn door

its not really by oficial standards, what Joe and other amateurs call it doesn't make it official

its laziness to call it 4k

1080p is not a 2K resolution so you cannot upscale to 4k without changing the ratio. You can upscale from FHD 1080 to UHD  2160 without changing the ratio. but UHD is not 4k either

2k and 4k are official cinematic resolutions and the terms are incorrectly used by TV manufacturers and the consumers.

actual 2k resolution = 2048 1080 and not 1920 x 1080

shutterstock down 80% of my BME at this rate. very alarming. its getting worse after i thought 50% was bad enough. august is even worse than july, much worse.

edit down 80% not down t0 80%

increasingdifficulty - from 15 to 0 doesnt happen without significant change

stockmarketeer - from 1 to 0 does not have the same odds as from 15 to 0.

stockmarketer - nonsense, if you sell on average 15 images per day and then all of a sudden 0 images, then something has changed. Doesnt matter if you go from 100 to 0 or from 15 to 0.

i see a pattern too, same every week, i see a number of downloads on the first 3 days mon-wed which are almost identical, then they drop by 40% on thu-fri and then i have 1 dl on sat and 1dl on sun, and the cycle repeats.

so for example (not actual) 20-21-19-13-11-1-1, every week. its probably random and coincedental but remarkable nontheless
