I am only selling at SS, BigStock and warmpicture. I just found all of my images on vectors123 dot com, baby-stockphotos dot com and wedding-stockphotos dot com. All three of these sites have the same page design, so I assume they are related.


The problem is, I have opted out of all partner programs. I checked Sadstocks list and these do not appear under SS or BigStock. Does anyone have any info about that? Thought I would check here before sending an email off to SS and BigStock.

It just links to SS when you try to download, I think it is just a referral site.

Yes, I did notice that. I just thought that this fell under the opt out of partner programs umbrella. No harm, I suppose.

It is. The referral link at the bottom is connected to this empty portfolio;

Glad it was just a false alarm.  I can see why you got excited, though.  Opting out of partner programs is a personal decision.  If somehow your portfolio leaked through the cracks, I would be pissed as well. 

Wow, what a lot of work to create an entire website just to snag a few referral sales.  Smart people.  I hope all of the effort was worth it for them.  I wish I could find some motivated and willing people to do something like this with my direct sales website & affiliate program, because every link helps in this business.

Do you mean the link from "Images and Data by Shutterstock" at the bottom of vectors123 page? Because I don't see any other referral link.

The one I looked at was on the bottom of the wedding-stockphotos site but they appear to all be linked to each other.

Yeah good find, the line looks like this and is a link but not very visible. Link site, nothing else. Data by Shutterstock.

On a related note what exactly is this site:-

http://www.publicdomainpictures.net/stock-photos.php?hleda=school+fish

Found a lot of mine and friends pictures on there.  They seem to use SS,FT and others.  I can't work it out, theres upload image options mentions of a business model but clicking on an image goes to SS.

What is this site meant to achieve for anything?

Another referral site, it has come up before. Most of the free stuff was from the owner, last time it came up.
