At this moment, we are making upfront payments for the 3rd wave of selections for the Free collection from the images you had previously nominated. If any of your images are selected for this wave, you will see your balance go up automatically within the next couple of hours. We will be sending you an email in the next day or so with the number of files approved and the amount of credits added to your account balance.
We are handling this 3rd wave differently than the previous 2. The selected files will remain in your paid portfolio for a short period of time yet to be determined. We are paying for the use in advance to simplify the process on our end when transferring images into the free collection. As always, we are closely watching the collection to determine what, if any impact there may be on the paid collection. By paying in advance, we can move the images at the appropriate time in a more seamless manner.
It is worth noting that the 12 month period in which your nominated assets are available for the Free collection begins the moment the payment is added to your account.
Great News! Is this the last wave of selections for the free collection or how many are still to come?
And another question in general: Can I see how often my pictured, which are selected for the free gallery,are downloaded for free? Or is the downloadcounter stopped for the time beeing?
