What On-Line Gallery

Will you Work With?


by Steve Heap


Although I don’t recommend that you upload to iStockPhoto just yet, (probably the best know microstock company) there is a very helpful on-line microstock manual on their site that explains about the type of images, what is acceptable and what is not, when a model or property release may be required etc. You can only access the manual if you have already joined, and so go to iStockPhoto and create an account. Then look for “Contribute” and this will take you to the manual.

Which Stock Sites to join?


I’ve thought about this a lot - Shutterstock, in my experience, is the most exciting site. I enjoy sales every day.
But you have to pass a "quality test" to get in, and if you fail, you have to wait a month before trying again.
So, I think the best plan is to start with CanStockPhoto. This is an easy site to join, there are no tests, no need to categorize images on the site (which is another pain) and, best of all, they have reasonable and very fast reviews of your images – usually within a couple of hours. So, sign up as a contributor at CanStockPhoto, search out the "Upload" section, upload your images, confirm that you are the owner and own the copyright and then take a break!
Go back to the site in a few hours and look at your displayed portfolio.
There is a separate section for rejected files. Canstock will include a reason for rejection. Examine your rejections. Try to see if you can reprocess the image to make it better. You can upload “fixed” images again, and it is worth doing this in the beginning. Once you are in the swing of this, you can probably judge the ones that are worth repairing.
OK – you have a set of images that were accepted at CanStock – what next?
Now is the time to try those images on Shutterstock – the most exciting and best earner for my personal portfolio. Go to the Submitter’s section of the Shutterstock website and create an account from the landing page.
Shutterstock
Commissions for photographers at Shutterstock start at 25 cents for each picture downloaded and after 500 dollars in earnings this bumps up to 33 cents each. At $3000 this goes to 36cents.
This may not seem like much, but because of the monthly subscription approach for buyers, a much larger number of pictures are downloaded each day – I currently get an average of 20 images per day on a portfolio of 1500 photos, and have now moved into the highest per-download earning bracket.
There are on-demand downloads which generate around $2, and occasionally, buyers will pay more for an “enhanced license” allowing a broader range of uses of the image – I normally have at least one or two at $28.00 each month.

UPLOAD OFFER


I have found that you need to upload steadily and regularly to this site, as there is an option for the photobuyers to display images that match their search requests showing the newest images first. This gives your pictures a chance of being seen quickly.
To be accepted as a member of Shutterstock you have to submit 10 photos and have at least seven of them approved. If you get less then seven approved, you will have to wait 30 days to try again.
It took me two cycles to get approved – so this is one of the sites to be very careful with. Choose 10 images that are technically perfect (and previously got accepted by CanStock) and send a mixed batch – some objects, some travel, some architecture – just to show that you can take a wide range of good shots. If you get rejected, it is OK to reuse the ones that passed, but if you have others that are as good, try a different mix on the second attempt.
Shutterstock is extremely fun to be a part of because of the high number of downloads per day and high earnings.

A word about the iStockPhoto Stock site

Photobuyers can purchase credits which can then be used to download images. Images are priced based on the size the buyer wants to download (starting around $1 for a small size and going up from there).
There is a lot of angst in the microstock community at present, as iStock has reduced most commissions (from 20% down to 16% in my case) and have reputedly modified the search algorithms to favor their exclusive members.
I personally can’t see the logic for being exclusive on iStockPhoto as you are required to be exclusive as a photographer, not at the image level, which means that you are tying your future to the success of that one site.
To apply, you sign up at the iStockPhoto Submission page. Search for “Contribute” on the bottom right of the screen. There is then an instruction manual to read that covers a general overview of stock photography. You must pass an on-line test based on the manual. You can then upload 3 photos for review and if they approve your application you can begin uploading. If your application is denied, you can try another 3 at any time. Make sure your submission is 3 files of different types, so iStockPhoto can see your overall abilities.

The only downside to iStockphoto is a somewhat cumbersome upload system when compared to FTP, but it is well worth it if you get a good photo that is popular as they pay more per picture than other sites.

KEYWORDS


iStockPhoto also has a very complex keywording system that forces you to match your keywords against their standardized vocabulary and they are very strict about not selecting “invalid” keywords. There is a specific program designed to help you upload to iStockPhoto and work on the keywords on your computer, which is well worth using – it is called Deepmeta – and you should start using this once you have been accepted.
Minimum payout on the site is $100. As if you needed more, they restrict uploads to 20 in any 7 day period, and will reject images for any noise, defects, dust spots, artifacts (which can be any sort of flaw) as well as copyright issues.

Editorial stock photographers won’t like this: If there is the smallest noticeable person, iStockPhoto requires a model release.
