Adobe Stock / Payments on Fotolia
« on: July 24, 2008, 23:42 »
I requested a payout on June 16th - It is now 5 weeks later and still no payment. I've contacted support twice by phone and twice by message to support and nothing is happening. Does anyone know of any issues at Fotolia like an overwhelming amount of payout processing or some other issue that would be causing this delay? I've been with them for two years and have had numerous payouts with no problem...

Hi Steve,

Knowing that you are kind enough to interact in these forums, I thought I'd post here because I've sent 2 notes to support over the past month with no response. I've had a number of baby images rejected for the following reason: "Signing guardian cannot be the photographer"   I've been submitting photos for over two years now to multiple sites and not one has ever given me that reason for a rejection of a baby image. My releases are signed by me for my kids and I also am the photographer. Why is that an issue with Stockxpert?

Images in question are the baby images in the briefcase #073636.

It's been 10 days for me without a DL on BigStock. I've been there for about 6 months and the longest I went without a DL was previously 3-4 days. I had been averaging about 20 DLs per month until now. Anyone else experiencing this slowdown? My other sites are chugging along as normal.

Who here takes pictures of there own children and signs the model release themselves?

Is there something illegal about the photographer signing his/her own child's model release? According to Stockxpert the "guardian cannot sign the model release as the photographer" I had a bunch of baby pictures rejected because of that. It sounds like pure BS and I've sent a note to support. I've been uploading images for two years to all the major agencies and I've never had something like that.

Simple - I am the photographer...My child is the subject of the model release. Me, being the parent, has signed the release...

Is there some obscure law that no other stock agency knows about that says a photographer cannot sign his/her own child's model release?

Adobe Stock / FT search working?
« on: November 02, 2007, 12:08 »
I am starting to get sales every day again after a period of about 5-6 months where I was only getting sporadic sales - maybe 20 a month. I haven't really added anything groundbreaking to it that would account for the sales increase. I only have about 240 images total. Up until recently FT was accounting for about 3-4% of total sales - tieing with StockXpert. Even 123RF was beating it. So is the new FT search engine finally working correctly?  I'm glad - it's like the good old times where I was getting anywhere from 3-6 sales notification emails a day.
