Hi Attila, paid 25$, but the comment on the payment is "Supporter Membership Fee" instead than "STOCKPHOTO", i have been unable to change it ...

Have you been able to gather enough donations to buy the software, Attila?

Stan, trifox makes some excellent points. This is the reality of the market today.
That said, I fully support anyone who wishes to participate.

Personally, I do not want any of my images sold for stock. There is an opt-out option, yes?

Attila, I just made a payment, didn't have any place to write a comment designating it as "for stock photo", but at least you should see the $25 having just come in.
Best,
Larry

I admire you all for this project, and wish you great success. My photography is not really of saleable quality, and tends to mostly be dogs and antique bicycles photographed in quaint village locations.

As soon as I am able to, I shall donate $25 to your project. I learn so much from your photography and you are always around when I need help with something, so it will be a pleasure to be able to help out just a little in your venture Cool

I have missed this thread until today.

As a hobbyist I'm not sure if any of my work is good enough to sell, but as always I'm eager to rise the effort. Judging from what I have seen on other stock image sites I think that I can compete in certain "non-studio" niches with my best captures.

Anyway. Since I already have started my mental process of someday trying to sell at least something, why not try this approach.

So Attila count me in if you think I will fit and please inform me about the donation situation (I doubt that I'll ever get the investment back by stock sales, but this this is kind of fun, and that's worth something).

Thank you for both of you! I think we can be different in three parts vs usual stock agency, so everybody will have place here an hopefully for success too. I won't refuse anybody , but naturally we will make some selections.

1) photo palette can be a bit different what agencies refuse we can offer
2) we will pay more for photographer and sell less for designers due we don't need to feed large companies, and we have thousands visitors per day so need to spend less on advertise.
3) I willing to collect some money from photographers too, like this 25 USD which is not much and cover some cost from running and help to keep commission to me low as possible on pictures.

Here is the list who did support idea already.

instead of spend 250USD +100 USD on plugin , I did made contract on rental option yesterday. Cost is 50 USD/month we can learn how software works and if it is fine, I can buy it later to save on costs. If not met with our taste I can cancel it any time.

This is software what I did select .
