After enduring 6 months of turmoil, drama, confusion and disappointment, some of it passionately expressed on forums, surveys and blogs, it’s only fair that I write this positive note given what I’ve witnessed this month. Many of the technical glitches have disappeared, communication has greatly improved, important steps have been taken to correct corporate mistakes, the best match search engine is healing nicely from the heavy battering it took last Fall, inspection times are fast and the results fair, indexation of new images happens overnight, the connectors to Getty Images and the other partner sites are working at an amazing speed, the royalties from these sites are now reported automatically in a timely manner, and, best of all, sales have started increasing, at least in my case. There are still quite a few things for them to work on, but it is great to see things getting back to normal and even improving. I’m glad I toughed out the rough months and stayed exclusive.
Welcome back IStock. My motivation is now renewed.
