Shutterstock.com / Re: How rare are Enhanced sales?
« on: May 07, 2019, 07:52 »
I haven't had an Enhanced sale since 2014.
My best sales have come from the Single and other category.

Signed the "Make Internet Fair" petition.
Not sure about the other one.

General Stock Discussion / Re: ITIN help (never been to US)
« on: November 03, 2017, 09:14 »
I've never had any problems with the numbers. Just leave it ITIN space blank.
Check country with 0% tax agreement for royalties. I think it's the W-8BEN Form.
Originally from Canada, live in Finland now.

I deactivated all my files after reaching payout last winter but I haven't closed my account.

Adobe Stock / Re: .eps uploads are back up and running
« on: May 26, 2017, 02:48 »
"Failed to upload file: Archive.zip, reason: image dimensions are below minimum requirements."

The preview is 25MP and the required is 15MP so the makes 10MP larger than required.

Alamy.com / Re: Vectors on Alamy - experience
« on: February 05, 2017, 07:45 »
When you upload vectors on Alamy they sell our work (with a large jpg) at 9,99 USD under a licence which seems like about an EL: "All rights, all media,  worldwide in perpetuity". I have some vectors there and I had some sales at 5$ royalties (the only one chance for vectors). Uploading raster-only version of an illustration you can earning much more. I had my first sale at 99$!! They treat vectors very bad. It is better think well about which vectors make sense to upload there.

I apologize for my poor English

This is interesting. My illustrations are on Alamy in raster-only format. I've been wondering if I should get the vector files of those images up there as well but it looks like it's not worth the effort. Sales are sparse and have ranged from 0.50 to 150$, but the bottom line at Alamy is better than BigStock, DepositPhotos...

I tried El Capitan but quickly returned to Mavericks.
Shouldnt they workout all the incompatibilities before dumping them on us?

With a name like "FreeArt, Inc" I don't think they'll be attracting too many paying customers.

They're after the lowest common denominator across all possible applications.

Yes, it was my thought too.
But I am not sure that today it still exists usable applications not able to open at least CS4 (for this I asked)

I think the concern is not with Adobe apps but being able to open the illustrations in
Coral draw, Inkscape, Serif Draw, Affinity Designer, etc...

Illustration - General / Re: What is best program?
« on: December 01, 2015, 02:36 »
There is also Affinity Designer, only Mac at the moment, but has won wards and garnered good reviews all round. I bought it when it first launched but haven't had time to give it a proper look yet. https://affinity.serif.com/en-gb/

Thanks for the information, looks like promising alternative to a___e.

I'm also an occasional buyer at Canstock.
It's been few years since my last purchase but my remaining credits are still listed.

Shutterstock.com / Re: Slow today - is it a holiday?
« on: May 14, 2015, 23:46 »
Ascension Day is the 40th day of Easter and commemorates the ascension of Jesus into heaven.
A public holiday in many countries.

It all it depends on who it's for and how they will be used.
- friend, neighbour and charity, 0 - 10 euro per icon.
- small business, 20 - 90 euro per icon.
- big business and listed companies, 100 - 500 euro per icon
- exclusive rights

Ei ongelmia tuli rahaa 10 ja 11.3. Nordean tiliin.

Looks promising.

The Canstock site is a mess, the number of files ahead of mine in the queue hasn't changed for months.
They need professional help.

I've been having unresolved problems with Canstock since October 2014.
