If Google images wasn't around, there would be something else.  I'd rather buyers were given an easy online resizing option and were made very aware that posting larger than necessary images online is against the license terms.

The other option would be to offer two sizes with subscriptions.  Charge more for larger sizes and people only wanting blog sized images wouldn't buy the big sizes.  Never really understood why the sites haven't done that.

I wouldn't want my website to be only viewed on smartphones, I'd want it to be viewed on every single device 2k 4k why not 8k?  I don't understand what that restriction means at all.

Good point. That should be reworded as it doesn't make much sense the way that it is written now.

that's not the point.

the logic for which the music and movie industries are fighting Torrent sites is THE SAME for which  google images and any other similar service should be banned and made illegal.

new competitors popping up ? unlikely considering the huge costs of running a whole datacenter, how are they going to break even or make a small profit ? no one managed to monetize image search so far.

so the crooks at Google/Bing/Yahoo aren't even making any money with their image search and yet their service is having a destructive effect on photographers, photo agencies, and photo archives.

X100  Why does this not make sense to the ms sites? There should be a differentiation in subs - large options vs small sizes

As a contributor it always makes me fell ripped off when I know someone has dl'd an XL or XXL for 25 or 30 cents

Then why don't you downsize photos before uploading to SS?

I aiready do thar - no way anyone is getting full res image unless they negotiate a special deal with me.

But the point is even reduced to 3800 px on longside, they can still makr a huge print from it for pennues
In some respects we as contributors are to take part of the blame for doing this to ourselves - I guess I would just like to see a differentiation betwee getting L and S subs tiered at different price points.

I did downsize for a short time but they sell more extended licenses than the other sites and now I occasionally get up to $100 for an image sale.  I'm not going to put those people off.

Subscriptions look like much better value than pay per download on most of the sites.  I think they should all offer them in different sizes at different prices, just like they do with pay per download.  They would probably make more money charging more for full size, we would make more money and bloggers would be able to get much closer to the size they want.

Has anyone actually confirmed this, i thryed to dowload the app to see if it is true, but i think its a scam you end up in and endless survey loop.

Any final conclusion about the method explained in this video? Anyone from SS has something to say?
