General Stock Discussion / Twenty20
« on: November 01, 2018, 18:41 »
I do not know if there is a lot of people here in Twenty 20, but I have just received an email from them:

"Today, we're shifting away from a fixed $2 per photo sold to Subscriber Share: a way of calculating contributor revenue share based on the core idea that a buyers money should go to the contributors they actually use and value...."


They do some quick numbers and conclude by saying that you will win the same, but really they are going to pay 20% of the subscriptions and the subscriptions cost $29/month and are unlimited, meaning that customers can download thousands of photos per month without limits, so they will end up paying us a few cents/download

I will wait until the end of November and depending on the income per photo, I will close the account.

Creative Market released a similar system with CreativeMarket Pro, was a ruin for contributors and now they are closing it.

Shutterstock.com / Photo in newspaper never sold
« on: September 20, 2018, 13:10 »
Hi, I just saw a photo of mine published in an important digital newspaper that in the credits indicates Shutterstock, however, I have never sold that photo in Shutterstock. Who should I contact, Shutterstock, the newspaper... or with none of them just for a few cents?   :-\

Is it possible that the sales do not appear immediately in the account?

Thank you

Shutterstock.com / Understanding Editorial /commercial
« on: July 05, 2018, 02:10 »
Hi, I can not understand the criteria for rejecting photos because they contain property rights.

Yesterday I uploaded pictures of cityscapes of New York containing American flags on foreground with skyscrapers and other office buildings on background (no Empire State, Chrysler, Rockefeller, One World Trade,...), as well as photos with planes flying over skyscrapers, none of them contained logos or anything similar, and they were all rejected for commercial use.

If I go to Shutterstock, I find thousands of similar photos that have been accepted as commercial. As a matter of fact, somedays ago they accepted me similar photos.

Can someone explain the criteria or does it depend on the inspector?

Thank you

iStockPhoto.com / Editorial photo review time

Hi friends

Until March the review times for photo editorial submission was 1-2 days, since then no editorial photo submission has been reviewed, is someone going through this too?
