Hello, I was hoping that some of you could share your experience with iStock alternatives. Please dont make any comments about how microstock is evil, how its ruining the economy, etc. There seems to be 2 choices. Go with the larger sites and possibly make $100 off of 1 image in a year, or go with a micro site and have a greater chance of making $100 off of 100-500 downloads in a year. The odds are with the latter. I did some searching, but most of the threads I found were years old, and many things could have changed since then. In my searches, I found the following. Shutterstock, StockXpert, dreamstime, bigstock photo, fotolia, etc. I am a member of istock, but im getting rather annoyed with them. At first they would turn down the occasional picture for noise issues, etc. Which is understandable. But now they are turning down the majority of what I send them, for having to many key words, for being over filtered *no filters were used*, and for no reason at all, saying they dont need the image at this time. Its not like im sending them scenery or flower pictures. They are business photos and buzzwords. So what agencies have you all used that you find have a good customer base and a good pay out scheme? Please, microstock sites only.
