Someones deluding themselves they make $70-80 average per photo a year

It's possible if someone keeps best selling photo and delete all others  ;)

How do you submit your content to SS? I think SS contributor website is also blocked.

106 / Re: iStock Exclusive Cancellation
« on: February 19, 2016, 02:53 »
So I sayd good bye iStock! I can not accept this kind of abuse.

You deleted your port there or just dropped exclusivity?

There is no distortion with 7-14mm Panasonic wideangle (would be 14-28mm on full frame). There is also no distortion with the Sigma 12-24mm full frame lens (old lens I don't now if its still in production) but this lens is very soft wide open and needs to be stopped down at least 2-3 full stops. Canon wideangle lenses are the worst of the market you better go with Sigma, Tamron etc. BTW I have th 16-35mm/2.8 from Canon and I can't recommendend it especially not considering the price tag.

Can you please recommend good wide angle zoom lens which covers the range of 16-35mm?

It's a big difference between 16-35/f2.8 and f4. The last one is much better. You can look in my port and you will see that all my pictures with Dubai city was made with Canon 6D and Canon 16-35/f4.

Was this taken at 16mm with 6D?

Don't know whether it will affect distortion but 10 mm on a 1.6-crop-factor camera is the same as 16 mm full frame.  I use the 10-22 all the time and I think the distortion you are talking about is inherent to any wide-angle lens unless you go for tilt shift.  I assume you've tried correcting it in PS - that usually makes it tolerable.  I think you will see the same thing at 16 mm full frame but don't have one to make a direct comparison.

I normally try to correct it in LR, but sometimes distortion is not tolerable (e.g.: close shots of tall buildings).

Is the 10-22 a dx or fx lens?

Currently using Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM Lens with 70D body

Planning to change to Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM Lens with 6D body

I currently use Canon 10-22mm lens on crop sensor body (1.6 crop factor). I mostly use 10mm for landscape shots (including skylines). However, there is a severe distortion at 10mm. I'm thinking of buying a Full Frame body (most probably Canon 6D) and Canon 16-35mm F/4 lens. Do you think distortion will be lower at 16mm on Full frame compared to 10mm on crop sensor? Thanks!


Yes I made a mistake.  Alerted me to it happening again (uploading similars photos)
I am happy today unblocked my account :)   Thank You Fotolia Team

That's a good news! Cheers!!!

Background is Vancouver, the boat is going from SF to NY. Very accurate keywording  :P ;D

What a joke this is. Some ignorant photographer/videographer spammed a clip with incorrect keywords. I hope they sue him and remove their total portfolio.

Moral of the story, bad keywords hurt us all.

How can a buyer purchase anything with confidence from any agency if there is not a standard in keywords???

Probably keywords were suggested by SS tool  ;)

ETA: Maybe Mat could stop by and give us a bit of insight?
Yeah, it's great if he can give some explanations. It's totally unacceptable to do this without any warnings.

Surely you don't expect to get compensation back, do you?

Depends. First we need to unite to fight against that sort of things, unfortunately it's highly unlikely....

Am I missing something?

Yes, if something like this happens, it will come out someday unless everything is handled by a single person how is the owner. You cannot do any business without trust. I rather worry about royalty cut.

The A6300 has just been announced, but it will cost about twice as much as A6000.

121 / Re: New EL royalty poll on surveymonkey
« on: February 04, 2016, 20:45 »
Apparently the average would be something around $ 23-24 for the highest level.

Meaning 14-18% less revenue for each EL. I doubt the alleged increase in sales will make up for it.

A price cut can bring it further down.

Adobe Stock / Re: Hint for Keywording less heavy
« on: February 04, 2016, 03:40 »
I contacted the 123rf support and I asked the matter of keywords order.....

They kindly replied me so:

"The order of keywords does not affect the search results. Once batched into the portfolio, the keywords are arranged in alphabetical order."


Some relief! Hope Fotolia do the same and save our time.

General - Stock Video / Re: Editorial content: Iraqis and Syrians
« on: February 03, 2016, 21:13 »
Hi everyone!
I'm heading to Iraqi Kurdistan for a project and I'll have the time to film editorial content mostly about Iraqi and Syrians refugee camps.
I'm a non-exclusive contributor now present on six platforms.
As I don't have much experience with editorial content, I'm wondering if anyone can suggest wether this type of content would be in demand for news, reportages and so on and, eventually, which agencies have a stronger editorial appeal?
Thank you all in advance.

May be Getty

Good Luck.

your a front runner when it comes to complaining about ss and taking action, here is action, and you wish them good luck instead of joining? my my

i am getting a bit tired of the finger-pointing. why is anyone not wanting to cut their income further a naysayer, naive,  negative?  get off your high horse. everyone has a right to do whats best for them.
