I get asked where people can get model release forms to use on Microstock sites all the time, so I decided to post one for everyone to download.

wedding party - Sometimes I question the internet and what is posted? Honestly the internet used to be like a different place, except that recently it seems to have become better and of the reason for it to be improving are blogs like this.

Krisztina Vajda - Like Cristy Cross Photography said, as a microstock (and photography) newbie this release template is extremely helpful for me – not wanting to fill in a release for each and every mictostock site… So, many many thanks to you Melissa!! 🙂

Micro stock stats for December 2010

December was not a bad month overall! I knew thee would be a decrease in December do to holidays and the regular December slow down.  Overall I am DOWN –25.08% total across all sites. I was very busy in December with Christmas, moving into a new house and having visitors here for Christmas, I did not get to upload any photos this month.  My goals for this year are to upload more and start using my Blog more as well.  Fotolia had a big drop this month DOWN –37.50%  with for me was Down $225.00 from last month!  Yikes!

clipart - Bigstock looks like they are cannibalizing SS earnings. Nice work with all the sales.

I was very sad today when I got a email that told me iSYNDiCA was closing.  I use this service to upload all my files to my stock sites.   This service was saving me so much time, it is sad that they are closing down.  All your subscription and credits will be refunded which is great but I really liked used iSYNDiCA, I hope someone else takes it over or has something the same to offer.

Hannu Viitanen - Hello Melissa…

it seems we are “in the same boat”. I´ve delivered all my microstock photos and graphics via iSyndica and now I´m feeling almost hopeless. If you find something which will provide the same services, please let me know.

Melissa King - Yes I will let you know if I find anything else that will work like iSYNDiCA. I am at a loss, it was so easy with this site. 🙁

Mornay van Vuuren - Hi guys

I’m sharing the same sadness! I’ve only been doing the microstock thing for about 5 months, but iSyndica has been a great time saver. I have done quite a lot of research, but have not found anything as nice as iSyndica.

We have some systems development skills in our team and we might look into developing a similar system once we’ve done some research on why iSyndica actually closed. I could post a link to our forum / blog here if you wish to follow the developments?

Melissa King - Oh yes please do! I would love to follow the development! Thanks

Mornay van Vuuren - I’ve started a new blog at I will post our findings there. In the meantime I might just use Prostockmaster. Not the same as iSyndica though!

Nick Jones - Its like breath away to know that iSyndica is withdrawing services and I have requested support team to bring it back alive, just a raise of hope… Does anyone has alternative?

ArenaCreative - That stinks. I never tried it, because I’ve always been happy with an older version of cushystock, which doesn’t even have a month to month subscription fee. It’s great for keying, copying metadata from one image to another similar image, and batch ftp uploading. has the option to download your complete portfolio, so it’s a nice backup backup solution, and it’s free also. Can’t beat that 😀

Rosina Whitey - i can’t tell if i’m having challenges with my net connection, or my internet browser on your website, or what, although the top component of the webpage is offset to the right

Sam Chadwick - Hi Melissa.
Saw your post today. Also happened to run into another post on Microstock Insider. Think it might be a replacement for you.

Ivelin Radkov - You can try PicWorkflow:
It works pretty much like iSyndica ! 🙂

DE PC Repair - Quite intriguing post. Do you actually plan on adding additional content or maybe writing a blog a lot more? My site is DE Computer Repair I assume you actually you shouldn’t mind however I have provided your own blog to a number of my associates as well. Very good work! By chance would you like to exhange websites?
