If Fotolia had informed me in advance and given me the option to individually opt in files for 1 dollar sales, I would probably have added some files. But it would have been low sellers or lower quality files.


Yes, absolutely agree! It have to be a choice of every one contributor, for himself! Me and nobody other, on behalf of me can decide, how could I sell my files!

All complain about Fotolia $ 1. But Shutterstock sells but also for just $ 0.25?
Someone explain me - whats the different thing with these two. I also hate to give my images in highest size for 0,25-0,35$.
?

Difference is SS doesn't sell for $ 0.25 your point is a mistake and not true. DPC sells for $1 pays small percentage. They didn't ask they just started it and pretend it wasn't FT. They only add opt out after protest when FT DPC got caught lying trying to cheat us.

SS I knew I was joined up with sub site. I get $ 0.38 minimum for download much more for od and single. What's your point?

I am annoyed of course. I as a supplier would simply ignored. But that's not the point I have here on the subject.

The point is, the price paid by a customer. The share of sales I get. And this is based on the maximum resolution that I offer.

38 cents .. and less ..

Regardless of the current debate, which will be ruined by DPC prices ...
My picture for a few cents in full resolution. ppfff  :o

So what i say is true: yes ss sells the images for 0,25 and less in FULL SIZE.
"Download... including access to all JPEG and Vector sizes!"
price: 0.27/image and less

What I basically it does not fit, the full resolution at low price.
example: My image on a 4x4 meters Poster for 25 cents ..

Actually Max is right. They do sell for +/- 25 cent. Just calculate the sub pricing.

only 4 weeks. The Food for Thought was a thread in this forum. this is about: Do you reduce your images for Shutterstock? Many do so for reasons of acceptability, or even the fact that you will receive the same amount for a smaller image anyway.

I've been seeing a different side of this just recently, having always thought as you set out above.

Your/my photo could be a double page spread in a newspaper or magazine and be in a bin very shortly afterwards.
Your/my tiny image could be on the web for many years. Sure, some sites refresh their images regularly, but you might be surprised how many don't.

You have to understand that most buyers buy lots of images simply BECAUSE they can download 25 images / day. That doesn't mean every downloaded image will be used. It could end up as 'one of many choices' and may eventually not be used at all. With the more expensive credit downloads, buyers will make more conscious decisions and then you image may not be downloaded at all. So in that respect, subscription royalties can be beneficial. They may be low, but these tiny royalties add up.

Then there is the occasional Extended License and multiple single downloads and On Demand sales that get us (decent) money.
