  1. Thank you for sharing, I understand some are heavily invested in shutter, they got thousands some millions of images and that was they´re mistake for investing it all here. My month has been nothing but 10 cts sales and even that has declined by my efforts are elsewhere. Other sites pay more, my efforts are make sense and like you will see once you do enough research pond5 is pretty great place to work on. I left istock in 2008 because the forums were bad, people rude, it was horrible pay and left it. And now look at em?
  2. Check out truspilot.com, seams like a scam site, you have to pay monthly and anyone can still your content by taking a screen shot. They in theory pay .004 of a cent per view which is ridiculous.
  3. Hey last year, I made a whole $25 bucks here!, they withheld $7 in taxes.
  4. Thing to consider here, is the problem I had with dreamstime and reason why Im not there anymore. They took my content sent an email I never noticed that said that if I didnt reply it would be moved on to another site that they own called stockfreeimages.com where they charge people to be members and give away your work as "creative commons" and pay you nothing in return. That is why I am wary of this sites and only work with partners that are transparent such as pond5. This site dosent do much for me and will eventually remove everything like everyone else is slowly doing. Best
  5. This is where I believe the problem lies in there being no regulation for what people are making and how they are getting paid online. This is a UN matter where if they were doing they´re jobs they would tend to the matter of online work exploitation being run by many companies such es amazon for instance.
  6. I havent really uplodead much to SS, it dosent make sense business wise, I upload my best to adobe and pond5, thats where the money is currently. Untill SS decides to go back to the old model of payment I cannot consider this a serious business proposition.
  7. His name is Doug Jensen, this is the forum talk where he discuses how well hes doing:
  8. wow cause theres these guy around here sometimes says hes making 2 grand a month on shutter with 8K amount of videos in his port... Well maybe things are different this year.
  9. Hope I don´t seam to be getting in to whats none of my business but with 12K videos uploaded shouldn´t you be making amazing sales?
  10. Cool I understand, I was theorizing that maybe you could be making twice as much as exclusive over there. But those things can be dependent on time as the search engines give you higher exposure as you go and upload and as sales occur.
  11. Hi Doug I have a question for you, do you think that with your portfolio of around 8K plus footage in a site like pond5 with (exclusivity option enabled, thats 60% of royalties for you, more than $30 + p/video,), that you could be making even more money than you are here? could it be that you could be making 2 to 3 times as much? I´m starting to make sales over there and my port is small when it comes to footage. Nothing happens here other than image sales for me. Best! I´m looking forward to building my footage to be your size and since I see no sales here or anywhere else for that matte
