It is the end : Stocksubmitter now reject any upload to  iStock.

Stocksubmiter display a message with some explanation on why they had to stop when you try to upload files to iStock.

In the meantime, Istock collection size and scope is diminishing every day against their competitors.

In any case it still surprises me that non exclusives supply to an agency that gives a 15% (photo) 20%(video) back to contributors when there are much better alternatives. Definitely many creative people are not the smartest and some agencies just take advantage of it......
Its cash that counts....while it is irksome that they grab so much 15% of 1,000 is still better than 50% of 100. Its a business/ethics decision nothing to do with being "smart".

Well guess the big bad Getty execs won. So do we start posting them mails and tweets now? It definitely makes my workflow a lot more complicated. Lets hope getty reconsiders and maybe even adds the qhero AI keywording to stock submitter

If only it was 1,000...Right now iStock performs so bad it's no better than other low-tier agencies. Which makes the decision not to waste time on them so much easier.
