Wait and see Nancy, believe me, I have read the first post many times and spent the entire day researching copyright laws. They are not your images that they are giving away, a lot of them are mine and I have not recieved anything from this so called licensing agreement, Read the post again. There is no license that allows them to redistribute images to third parties.

 
Hi Ed,
Your concerns are heard and appreciated however please know as we've shared earlier that this is:
1. a beta / soft launch which is explicitly the time for testing & changes
2. an official partnership with Bigstock.com  
3. a unique license of 3rd party distribution to benefit both Bigstock contributors and GCU's contributors
 
More details are being iron out as we move forward but please trust that both businesses are operating in good faith.
 
Please stay tuned to this thread for updates as we progress.  Smiley  We will have some updates by the end of this week.
 
Thank you Nancy for sharing your thoughts on this topic!  Smiley

Mindy, I have already received an explanation from BS. Frank explained it very well.

Ed, Bigstock informed me that we will be paid every time a card is sold with one of our designs. If you do not wish your cards to be used you can opt out of the deal in your Bigstock account settings.

We will leave the Bigstock details (payments and terms) to be shared by Bigstock but hope to share here with you a link or reference.  We are working closely with them to make sure the information is consistent and readily available for artists / contributors.

Ok team, this is back open for testing!  Thank you for your patience.  Also we are now allowing artists to submit up to 10 test cards.
 
We are focusing on the basics right now but will keep a list of your feedback in this thread for extra bells & whistles in consideration for future updates:
 
You will now notice:
 
* "Beta" graphic on the landing page clearly indicating it is still in testing mode.
 
* New line for "Original Image by:" crediting the Bigstock contributor:
1) Quickview
 
2) Card Details page, see here:
http://www.greetingcarduniverse.com/collections/offthecuffgreetings/henna-indian -wedding-hands-congratulations-1196630
 
3) on the back of the card, upper right hand corner, see here:
http://www.greetingcarduniverse.com/shopping/zoom.asp?pid=1195756&w=1&re f=details_large_view&view=back
 
These original image credits will be automatically created for new cards.  Over the course of this week we will be populating the proper credits for cards created before this addition.
 
* Stock Card Creations landing page added as a link from the GCU artist Administrative page under Images & Cards as:
Create a Card - Stock Card Creations (BETA)  
Use licensed images from Bigstock.com -  learn more  
 
Currently being worked on is the back end process that will communicate detailed sales & earnings activity.  
 
Let us know if you have any questions and thank you for your help testing this exciting new feature!  Cheesy

As I recall reading at the beginning of this thread, you want us to report any bugs.  I made a few stock card creations and here are the problems I encountered:
1.  Could not get the choices for text box to come up when creating one card -- no choice of color or font or font size, etc.  Used the font which came up and it looked okay, but would have been nice to see the choices to find the best font to match the card style.
2.  Sometimes when clicking on a big stock photo nothing happens and you have to start over again.
I am using Chrome.
