I wasn't sure if it was going to be a good thing when Veer switched from selling just vector versions to a variety of sizes. Well, the answer is starting to become clear. It's a bad thing. Now, instead of having large credit sales trickle in, it is all extra small sizes. It's frustrating and it feels like my sales are being cannibalized. Veer has gone from an agency I was excited about to just another low RPD agency. Oh well there's other places to focus on.  :(

Can you explain that a little more, Corey? Do you mean that a vector previously sold for one price (maybe based on the complexity, like IS does (or did) and now a buyer can get a vector file in different sizes? That can't be right, because vector graphics are scalable and an XS is the same as an XL. Am I missing something or is that what they are doing? Or are the small sizes jpgs?

Yes. They used to sell just the vector like iStock. Now, they still sell the vector, but they also sell all the jpeg sizes like DT. I'm more partial to iStock's system because I think the small sizes are kind of a rip off to contributors. Most of these sites you get paid less for an extra small than you do a sub sale. I was just sad to see Veer switch over to this.

Yeah, I see why.  :(

When I first got into veer, I could only upload Images, therefore my illustrations were all JPG's.
I got tiny sales because of that... People would get my images just for blog use....I decided it was going to be too much trouble to upload EPS to compete with the JPG prices.
