We'd like to welcome the newest member of the Getty Images family. Thinkstock.com is a new subscription site launching today powered by selected photos, vectors and illustrations from Getty Images, Jupiter Images, and iStockphoto. It launches with the highest quality imagery of any subscription site, from the biggest names in the industry.

What does it mean for you here? If you're a contributor and are opted-in to the Partner Program, this is another site where your work will be featured. (That's right – Thinkstock is the long-rumoured Jupiter Images Unlimited replacement.) Just like at Photos.com, your royalties will be tallied up once a month and appear in your lump monthly Partner Program payment. You can find your content on Thinkstock by searching for your first and last name in single quotes: 'John Doe'. All iStock content will show up as the iStockphoto collection.

Check out Thinkstock here.


Happy Sunday!

ETA: Here is the link to the Partner Program FAQs if anyone needs a refresher.

It's a really hot site, and I'd like to say congrats to the developers & team over at Getty HQ that worked on this. They turned it around in an amazingly short time period. I think it will be a very successful outlet for iStocker's work.

Hmmmm. I'm lost, but I may find myself, I guess. Can I just check?


Photos.com plus = $249.50 monthly; $1499.95 annually: photos from the old photos.com collection and those opted in from iStock. Huge price for a one-off purchase. Apparently all sizes cost the same (so reason for having the different sizes listed not explained).


Thinkstock = $250 monthly; $2499 per year  (compared to the above that seems a bit strange) for opt-ins from iStock, plus 'selected' (by what criteria?) images from Getty and Jupiter images. Size listed 'as is'.


Thinkstock's front page looks very nice, BTW.

Question: I have noticed that although I chosed to be displayed only the member name on iStock suddenly my real name appears at the Thinkstock site. This is not good because there are many people who have a reason not to display their real name. Are you able to change this?

Wait a minute: am I getting something wrong, or missing something?


on photos.com, an annual sub for $2500, photos.com costs $1500 - but we get paid the same per image?

Why Getty felt  the need to make a new site/company is strange.


Punchstock:It has over 100 image partners (100+ different companies) including Corbis.


Clipart:Ablestock,Comstock and PhotoObjects.


Jupiter Images.


Istockphoto.com


Getty.


How come my work is now being sold on Thinkstock without my permission.

So, this is the new Getty subscription site? What's the point of having two subscription sites? What's the payout/royalty plan?

So, what's the point then? Am I missing something? Or to put it another way, what's the unique selling point of the site?

I suppose Jupiter had a rather large customer base that they're tapping into.

If you signed up for the partner program and opted photos in, you gave permission.


If you didn't, you didn't.

So, what is photos.com then? Tell me the difference between the two sites. Is there no Jupiter stuff there, or couldn't they put Jupiter stuff there? Why make basically the same thing when you already have an existing storefront?

This is interesting: "Don't need a full subscription? Our 5, 25, 100, and 250-shot image packs are perfect for smaller budgets or per-project use. Check back soon for details."

So, the prior argument that cannibalization won't occur because people who don't need 25 images a day shop at iStock will be challenged by a "image pack" at, I assume, bargain prices?

Also, it seems to include photos.com, so why not shut that down?

I have only one Vetta image and it doesn't appear on the page where I can select images to the partner program. So why is it for sale on photos.com and thinkstock?
