Hi

Further processing of images should start tomorrow tuesday, and catch up within a couple of weeks - no rest for those who work from home.

Any Covid 19, or physical (social) distancing images - market them for Urgent processing when uploading.

Cheers for now

Hi there. I am new to mychillybin and have been eagerly waiting for my first photos to be approved. I received an email saying 30 days was around the amount of time to wait – this has long since past. Is there a new estimated time of approval? Thanks.

Hi

January payment supplier invoices have just been sent, and payments will be made late tomorrow (providing one day for any change of bank account details needed to be provided).

In February we will be trialling a new targeted promotion, to see how effective it can be.

Thanks for all the photos coming in - much appreciated - we will get these processed as soon as the promotion is underway. Any urgent ones - please mark these as urgent when submitting.

cheers for now

topic: December payments

Have just checked.

I thought December 2019 sales payments were done whilst I was on holiday, but on checking they were not. I remembered incorrectly. My apologies.

So we have just processed all the suppliers invoices for both December 2019 sales reaching $100 or more, and January 2020 as well, and send them to photographers. Both of these will be paid today.

Thank you for pointing this out, and again my apologies for the delay on December payments.

December was done some time ago, and we will do January today or tomorrow.

Will check your December one and confirm for you.

Hi guys. Just wondering when those of us who sold images over $100.00 worth in December, will receive payment for these?

Thanks Graham

You describe well the review journey we are embarking on (while still making a few tweeks to the current site). Great insights. The stock world never stands still.

Have you looked at what others have done?
Have you asked the designers (i.e. the purchasers) what they want?
Have you looked at cost vs return - and how do you know the latter?

Stock images have changed huge over the last 2 years.... Getty and others that I have portfolios on - have each "crashed" in sales for me, as huge companies now regularly provide 10s of thousands of images into their central databases of millions of images to choose from... Shutter stock now 88 million.

Sure this site is different.. you have to identify why it's different and how this difference is able to better provide for the current and future customers. If the single expertise is NZ people... then let's all chase that richness for the designers.. if it's NZ fauna or flora.. or architecture or sport or cultural icons... whatever - let your photographers help you build this richness. If your identify what the designers want.. we will chase the images.

I have noticed the trend to more casual lifestyle images in mags and especially web sites e.g. from cell phones - weird angles and lighting and blurs etc If we/ you insist on all high quality traditional images - maybe we will be by-passed .

Maybe a new section of this casual image section would be worth a try - see what the designers want...

The big current question to how to produce mychillybin 2.0. Modify the current site, build a new one, or utilise an existing application with modifications?

Maybe a another competition may motivate some inspiration amongst us sleep contributors???


Unfortunately i feel it's going to take a lot more than that to get this site into the 21st century, i'm 61 now and i believe that this site needs someone that is 21 to get this site where it belongs digitally in N.Z. and beyond.Perhaps beyond is a key factor here, just saying.
