I can no longer see what I have on Thinkstock. I used to search by my name (Barbara Reddoch). Now it returns 0 results. I contacted thinkstock and they told me that there was no way to access one's contributor account or search by your name or see what you have on thinkstock or not. They told me if I needed help to contact istock! I read on the forums everyone's posts about how many photos they have on thinkstock etc.


Someone PLEASE tell me how you access this information?! Many thanks in advance.

Nevermind. I just discovered quotes around the name do the trick. It would have been nice if they could have just told me that instead of that it was impossible.

This info is also in the PP FAQ at the top of this forum:

Does not always work that way, I cannot use either "cmannphoto" or "Charles Mann" on either site, it shows zero results. Yet I have images on both sites.

Hi Charles, I've just run a check on Thinkstock and Photos.Com using "Charles  Mann" (two spaces between your first and second names) and 93 images come up on both sites.  Hope this helps.

Single quotes instead of double quotes and single space also works on thinkstock. Like this 'Charles Mann' ...

It would be a lot more contributor-friendly if we had logins on the pp sites where we could view our portfolios and track our sales.

Thanks for the help. One space, two space, single quotes, double quotes, who knew.

After reading the PP FAQ I did see this


Please note: Some people need to put two spaces between their first and last names to return results


which I obviously missed this time around. Hope it helps the next person who read this.


Thanks again.
