Great News.


I opted-in  but noticed that I'm now opted-in to the Partner Program. I never was before. 


Is this right?

Very cool, thanks for the work behind the scenes on this.   Lets see what the collection can bring up from the myriad of great to incredible files in both formats.

Very pleased that this came along "sooner" rather than later.

Question about the pricing: In the Ilustration forum thread, Andrew said "Complexity wasn't really the best way to look at what should and shouldn't be in there." Yet the Vetta vector prices are based on complexity. Can we get some more detail (no pun intended) about this?

That is a known bug. The check-box for partner program checks itself. You're probably not opted in if you haven't been before. So I guess you shouldn't be worried.

Yet the Vetta vector prices are based on complexity. Can we get some more detail (no pun intended) about this?


In the other thread, I was referring to the fact that only the most complex price level ('Elaborate') was previously included in Vetta. No other files could be added, only 'Elaborate' illustrations: The migration into the collection was automatic.

This meant that thousands of stylish, amazing, well executed illustrations were never eligible for the Vetta collection, simply because they didn't fall into an 'Elaborate' pricing category. But you don't need a ton of detail to create a top-notch file: This is why the previous Vetta collection never worked well for us. In fact some of my personal all-time favourite files here on iStock aren't very detailed at all: They're just great concepts, executed perfectly, without a lot of unnecessary detail. And this isn't a bad thing at all.

Now, we have 3 new pricing tiers for Vetta. This means we can finally add amazing illustrations even if they aren't 'Elaborate'. This isn't an automated process anymore, and people can nominate their own files, regardless of whether or not it meets our 'Elaborate' price level.

Hope this answers your question.

I'm doing a personal lightbox with my vetta candidates to make my job easier when nominations start to be accepted. It's funny.

Just opted in. As an illustrator who was in the previous Vetta collection, this is a no-brainer for me, can't wait!

What are the royalty rates for vetta?  Based on canister level?  On my stats page, under current royalty rate it shows 0 even though I have opted in.

Can someone at IS please explain the maths behind the announced combination of increased prices and decreased royalties.


For a video contributor who currently gets 40%, a Vetta HD720 download will actually give them a lower royalty payment than for the main collection.
