Title: FAA and SS
Post by: steho on August 06, 2019, 15:49
Honored that Shutterstock sells my photo at Fineart America, why they communicate those things like other minor things, do anyone have a price for a FFA sale is it as I suppose a sub at SS.
Felt like my image with the real watermark attached looked good...

Image did not work, so here is a link:

Since you're so happy, why not submit to FAA directly and keep all the profit?

You said you were honored. I thought you were happy about it, too. I missed the sarcasm. Not sure what the commission would be, but you are right, probably a sub.

Ah, fair enough.  :(

Does anyone have the info about what the SS deal is, ie how they calculate how much you'll get?

I missed the point too.

Here's a modest suggestion… if English is not your native language, you probably shouldn't try to be ironic, sarcastic, or overly subtle, because those are things that take a lot of linguistic skill to do well.

I asked that on the SS forum but no response as of you.

That is rather patronizing. I don't think it was hard to detect the sarcasm/irony. It is well known the Americans are not well versed in sarcasm.

I'm not American, I'm very well versed in sarcasm and I didn't catch it.
However, it's late at night, so I'll apologise to the OP and leave it at that.

I got it immediately especially helped by the linked photo......but that prolly cos I'm a Brit who's lived most of his life in NL! I'm soooo cynical especially about corporate business practices.  ;)

I got the sarcasm.

I would also like to know if it is just a sub.

Isn’t that patronizing too?
