YAY Oslo, Norveç konumunda bulunuyor. Jan Ole Kjellesvig, Linda Johannessen ve Oddbjørn Sjøgren tarafından kuruldu. YAY Ocak 2008'de kuruldu ve ilk resimler 7 Mart'ta sitelerine yüklendi. Birkaç harika inceleme ve olumlu yanıtın ardından YAY, Haziran 2008'de site lansmanı ile görüntü tabanında 200.000 görüntü elde etmeyi başardı.

YAY Micro (YAY), düşük fiyat, yüksek kalite, iyi bir itibar ve yüksek müşteri ve katkıda bulunan memnuniyeti açısından en yaratıcı ve editoryal mikro-ajans olmayı hedeflemektedir. Vizyonları lider dijital içerik sağlayıcısı olmaktır.

Fotoğrafçılar YAY'da% 50 komisyon alıyor. Abonelik satışlarında, her indirme için 1 € (yaklaşık 1.50 $) komisyon sunarlar. Çalışmanızı başka sitelere satmakta serbestsiniz. Onların Ortaklık Programı harika - bir müşteri YAY her şey her zaman% 30 komisyon alırsınız - sonsuza kadar!

İlginç olan - YAY görüntü onayı profesyonel bir şirket tarafından yapılır ve bu nedenle herhangi bir görüntü onaylayıcıya ihtiyaç duymazlar.

If you want to follow how Shutterstock's portfolio has changed since the fee change on June 1, 2020, you can check this in the hourly updated visualized Google table: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Sx80IDLCr0-1_ie1a17Rtm4m9fgUwglaxHdyNy2lDCc/htmlview?fbclid=IwAR30BmNy63U-_eFV6Bx7fciXMxWRqRZlGtS9jSKs-uUKp-GxV64qOGDpa1E#

VERY Interesting! Thanks for sharing - looks like they've lost about 5 million so far out of 326 million, but look at that  CLIFF-FALL at the end!! (today) I hope someone in the office is starting to panic now.

Horst, thank you for providing this data. That is very great to see. Shutterstock lost 5.000,000 on content within only 2 weeks.

Thanks for sharing!!!

I think SS really dont care about small portfolios, no significant at all when you see the top 100, capitalist business is not for artist, is for artist who work like capitalist, exactly what the 100 do, check how many photos in the game ???

Shutterstock has financial problems storing, managing, and auditing ever-increasing amounts of data.

Shutterstock's interest is not in how big a portfolio is, but how it performs. In short, how much money it brings in. That is all they are interested in.

If someone has a portfolio of 100,000 images that generates 1,000 sales, Shutterstock has zero interest in it compared to a portfolio of 1,000 images that generates 100,000 sales. Because the big portfolio costs them a lot more money and generates a lot less profit.

In that respect, your statement is universally false.

In general you are right: Shutterstock has in the recent past focused on mass instead of class. It was a mistake, because it is too expensive and brings in too little money.

Now the contributors are supposed to pay for this management error, which you advocate here.

In fact, 7,000,000 images have been deleted or disabled, Mirko. Because, if you can still believe the Shutterstock website, 2 million new images were added in the two weeks. And yet, the bottom line is 5 million fewer.

That is correct. I didn't want to get too deep into detail. :)  I think there will be much more content pulled every day.  Some people are still watching to see if some miracle happen and Shutterstock comes around, or the sales price goes up...  Looks like non of this will happen.

I requested to delete my account today, I also rated 1 star on Trustpilot.

Microstock is not my main job, my portofolio is just under 2000 images, less on Adobe stock but since the recently changes it is impossible for a beginner to earn even 20$ per month, I will only upload on Adobe, i just feel bad for all the people who depend mainly on shutterstock for their income...

I would kindly remember all the people with a little of brain that the topic is the new criminal earning structure for the contributors and not the amazing portfolios. 

Also, your mums should have taught you thst writing in big letters is considered bad education

I think your right !! So why SS keep accepting contributors even now and why not to clean all the old photos never sold ?

 

I would like to express my thoughts on this.

The original problem was that the agencies - not just shutterstock - were offering their customers ever cheaper prices because they believed that was the only way to attract or retain customers. The customers who thought they could get thousands of pictures a month for a few cents should have been ignored. Quality doesn't come for free. It costs money. If you want something for free, you should get your images from an agency where the images cost nothing. That's the price such clients want anyway.

That was the first mistake, in my opinion at least.

In order to feed these great customers with always fresh images, they let millions of worthless images into the database. They even manipulated the algorithm so that the misers always find something new. Now you have problems managing the database, which costs more money than you earn.

How sick is that??? Offering cheaper than my profit just to keep misers in line? And then I go there and explain to the contributors that it is no longer profitable and that from now on they will have to give up large parts of their income so that I can satisfy the people from whom I earn nothing (or who even cost me money)??

Microstock images are discount goods - no question. And we all agreed to the model in general.

But there are enough discount models worldwide that are worth it. The suppliers don't get a lot of money for their goods, but at least an acceptable amount of money, in return for very large distribution channels, which they cannot produce themselves. And they are not called upon for management mistakes in which they suddenly have to give up a large part of their previous income. Because that's where management does a good job. that's the main difference with Shutterstock.

By the way, on the subject of large portfolios: At Adobe Stock, Africa Studios has never sold about 1 million of its 1.3 million images. I suspect that the situation is similar at shutterstock. 1 million images that had to be stored, managed and previously reviewed. In order not to take a cent with it. If shutterstock did what you say they did, there'd be a million pictures only at Africa Studio.

The bigger a portfolio, the higher the percentage of pictures that have never been sold. That doesn't necessarily speak for large portfolios either.

By the way, in the list of the biggest contributors, after a few minutes, I found three who turned off the portfolio in protest of the new prices. There will certainly be more, but I didn't give it another time ...

Join Submitters Coalition and stand up for your future.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/261369748434285

About this Coalition, you do understand that whoever made it, wants to make an image bank of their own, right? And what will happen when / if they grow big that they will need to pay contribs less than 40% in order to keep up or close down? But I guess the new moto would be to "commit" to contributor rates? And drown the business before it even starts by making it not-versatile?

Would it cross your mind that Shutterstock is just transforming themselves in order to have a better longlivety? Because it wouldn't be much use to all of us if their financials became, say, tougher?

But they do need to think a way to allow us our retention and track it more fairly than just resetting everyone. If I was them I would keep the January reset only for the ones that protest and reward the loyal ones with a rolling 12 month average.
