im just glad i can play a small part to be honest.

some of the other stock agencies accept images that arent great technically and i think its looking after the end customer that has made istock what it is today.

As Kevin Costner was told in the film Field of Dreams by the dude who voices Darth Vader "Build it and they will come". I love this place and the strange sense of belonging it provides

 

James Earl Jones? That was him?

BTW, I saw something there about employee ownership. I don't suppose that could be extended to contributors could it? I'd love a piece.

Give us a payout option to take payment in shares!

My favorite sentence is this one, which isn't grammatical: "Our revenue and payouts have eclipsed those of many traditional stock
photography companies confirms that microstock is a viable and
profitable business model for contributors and clients."

Does iStock need to hire a copy editor? I'm a good one.

This place has been an AMAZING blessing. I too would hug someone from istock HQ (awkwardly long) if I saw them.

Wasn't the editor's fault. Last minute change. Should have said "That our revenue...". Has been fixed.

It's incredible how fast everything has happened, when I look back it seems almost irreal... but it's a reality. The best of all is the amazing future that we have, in fact we're an 8 years old kid. I can't even imagine what we will do when we become teenagers

Thanks to all that make it possible.

Thanks iStock for being one of the best, most creative,fun, educational & challenging things I have ever been privileged to be a part of. Here's to 2008 BYE!

Go to an iStockalypse and you'll find out how scary a thought that is.

JEJ was in fact cast in every movie from 1987 through 1991½.  I should know:

iStockphoto: A party is not a party without ...
RonTech2000: James Earl Jones.
 
And much like monsieur Jones, I would have invited iStock to my wedding had I known about it at the time!
