... For all the contributors in the imaging industry, we need this site to FAIL MISERABLY. It is GETTY trying to get away with their ridiculous 20% payouts. The more you make on this site, the more you eventually lose because you made it the status quo. We need to stop this "Yes sir, may i have another" mentality.

Ditto!

Wish every stock photographer could understand it.  :(

^^ Yep!

I was stupid and one week before the announcement I put around 300 images on thinkstock through the PP because I felt like IS and myself were going forward together, that was stupid and I immediately removed all of my images from Thinkstock and PP.  I think everyone needs to do the same it's a small protest individually but making this site fail will go a long way I hope.

I emailed StockXpert support about Forum and Payouts.

Got this response:

Dear Warren,

Thank you very much for your email.

We have not received the sales report for September yet. As soon as we have the sales date, the royalties will be updated.

The forums have been disabled as of October and there are no current plans to restore this function.

Thank you for your patience.

Regards,

Darek

I didn't notice until someone mentioned it here, but there's nothing on the forum of interest or importance, so no loss.

I did notice that when I asked support a question, I got an answer in a couple of days, which blows away a few other sites, which take over a week to give a non-answer "we're working on it" and up to eternity. (never an answer)  ;)

My question was about closing the account and the answer was, sure, just remove the images and make the request for final payment. A nice polite, answer to the straight question.

No clauses, no 30 days, no 90 days, just cut and run and they will pay me whatever I have, even though it's under the minimum payout levels. Don't try that with the same sites that don't answer or refuse to pay for a closed account, unless they owe you $50! $30 for BigStock, but I think all the rest bumped it up to $50 now.

Not me!  I get a payout this month.  And it only took nine months to gestate.  ;)

i think its better than 123rf, no needs for uploading and you can keep earning money from TS/StockXpert but you can not get a rare dl from 123rf even you continue uploading files to there every month >"< >:(

Questions, do you make 25 cents per sale through StockXpert?

Does StockXpert accept new images?  What are their standards, a high as Istock?

Do they accept images at their minimum size, which if I recall was was around 2mb. 

In January when things slow down for me again I would consider downsizing to XS for 25 cents if there were sales (wow, think of how fast the uploading would be!)  It's no worse than I selling XXL on FT for 37 cents.  Other than the fact that I would be supporting ThinkStock.  (I have had 19 cent sales at Istock and that will be going down in the near future...)

Your experience, not mine.  For me, 123 outperforms StockXpert by quite a bit (3:1 this month, almost 6:1 last), and of course they take my new work.  I consider that a benefit, not a drawback.

StockXpert quit accepting new images earlier this year.

Isn't there a way to tell which, or if, iStock images are transferred to Thinkstock?

Yes, go to TS, type 'your name' and then go to Collections and choose Istockphoto collection ( or hemera, if you want to see your StockXpert images).

And click the box that says "search within results" you'll get only your own images.

Now I remember why I kept the StockXpert files up for sale for 25c each. Because there are over 100 that IS refused and they are also refused by everyplace else, except maybe a few on BigStock. But that means that I'm selling a few dollars worth each month, that aren't for sale anywhere else. (And maybe shouldn't be either) :)

Here's one that I'm pretty sure everyplace refused, even Snap Villiage.

Now that's "CRAPSTOCK"at it's best. (image link was a cache, so it vanished.)

At least someone is answering the phone  ;) and pretty quickly, at that...

Doesn't change the fact that the matrix of the Getty universe seems to be full of glitches lately  :P

Just got a single pay-per-dowload $26.00 sale posted to StockXpert? I didn't know that could happen, so far only 25 cent sales, anyone else ever see that?  It was also reported separately from the subscription sales on a different date. hmm is there hope for thinkstock after all...this boosts the usual $5 dollars a month a little.
