Couple days ago I checked his works on Photodune and found nothing. Now I know why his portfolio was emptied.

He is one of the biggest stock-photo providers, but there are also many others that fill the PhotoDune library. I don’t think this will put PD down. He left not only from PD, but from all other places but one, where he signed exclusive deal, as far as I know. Does it mean that all other stock-photo marketplaces will go down?

Why so much drama about one guy? :P:D

I think this is better for a young marketplace such as PhotoDune.. Of course, for Envato it means less sales. But for regular authors (who don’t have 1000+ items in their portfolios) this could mean a better chance to sell their works.

Yes, I agree, but quality is not the same. That’s the point.

he is talking about subscription x month websites. photodune doesn’t have this type of business. istock actually have it so all those post about microstock are really funny since he got exclusive to a website that works with subscription x month

Yes that is a plus point for all other photodune authors, but with his massive and awesome 65k portfolio gone, many buyers will go to that site… Many GR authors used his stocks, the flyers/websites and all other items were linked to PD, (Which is currently unavailable now that its deleted) And so the flyer buyers will go to that site… (including a lot of authors)

Yes, He had a really big portfolio, and deleting it left a giant hole in PD and other stock sites. Signing a exclusive agreement is not the only thing. He wanted some more facilities in the current sites but they failed to give him. He stated that all his requests about the facilities were either already there or coming in the updates. He wasn’t alone, His team also went there (7 of them are in the top 10)
You do the math :|
