Autumn in Germany. It`s getting colder, rainy and the nights are getting longer. Time to do some homework by processing and uploading new images from the past months.
Thanks for the response to my last post regarding the 10 Credit iStockphoto Vouchers. As I still have some of those vouchers just drop me a short email to receive those 10 iStock credits for free. Here is again the ‘how to’ from my last post from 12th october.
“Exclusive istockphoto contributers can get istockphoto businesscards as a giveaway to friends, potential customers and so on. On each of those businesscards is an iStockphoto 10 free credits voucher included with a unique voucher code. As I am an exclusive contributer I received those businesscards, too.
So i`d like to share those vouchers with you. If you like to get a 10 Credit iStockphoto Voucher for iStockphoto just send me a short email to firstname.lastname@example.org and i will send you a 10 credit istockphoto voucher together with a short description how to redeem those 10 Credits at istockphoto. It`s fast and easy to get those 10 Credits and it also valid for already existing istockphoto accounts. So just drop me a short notice and you can try out istockphoto and download up to 10 different Images or Illustrations for free.
It`s an easy and fast way to license some images for your blog or website and to try-out istockphoto. And if you might like some of the images you fsee here, you can now download them with this 10 credit voucher, too. Just drop me a short notice at: email@example.com“
There has been a lot of discussions between contributers recently about the new microsite www.istockcharts.de. This Website gives an overview of Total Downloads, Downloads within a certain amount of time and much more informations (all sortable) of istockphoto contributers.
All those informations about istock contributers are and have been public since years. Multimedia.de meshed those informations together into sneaky, naughty little website. Meanwhile contributers which don`t want to be on the list can opt-out of it, then they appear as ‘anonymous’ there. But why should contributers opt-out? The Top Contributers there are already very well known and some of them even promote their “Ranking Positions” on their own websites or blogs.
In my opinion those opting-out are a littly ‘sissy’ or ‘chickenhearted” as their informations could be found elswhere like in ‘Duncan1890’sBlog, istockphoto TOP 1000 Contributers and the different contributers can even be compared like on the website of www.istock-apps.com (You need an iStockphoto account to log-in)
So try it out and make up your own opinion, it might be an inspiration for you find the next stock photography shooting stars there.
