iStockPhoto.com / How do you view your sales for iStock/Getty?
« on: September 23, 2017, 00:38 »
Since the iStock Getty Unification, viewing sales reports has changed a lot.  How do you view your sales? Deep Meta, Stock Performer?  ESP? All are kinda confusing and take a long time to show current sales information.

Let's say I want to create a composite image of a person standing in front of the London Bridge and I own (shot) the isolated "person" image and now need to get a photo of the bridge. No, I cannot afford to fly to London and take the photo myself. :(

And suppose I find the perfect London Bridge photo on Flickr (or any source) and contact the photographer so I can buy the copyright to the photo, how do I convey to contributor sites like iStock that I own the copyright to the photo -- even though I did not take it -- but only paid for it and now have a signed document stating that I am now the copyright owner provided by the original shooter.

So the short question is; how do you composite image contributors source and acquire legal rights to images that you did not take? How do you convey your copyright ownership when submitting your work?

Thanks for your replies :)

Here is a cool app/website that reads your istock .txt file data and makes it more user friendly.

I just found it on the iStock forum and have nothing to do with this app or the folks who made it. It works really well.


What are the pros and cons to using your real first and last name for your stock photography contributor accounts?

I see bylines in magazines with odd contributor screen names and think they are missing opportunities to promote their true name and identity.

I am considering requesting my screen names be changed to my real first and last name.

Your thoughts?
