Second month and dreamstime its best seller for me.
Shutterstock and Adobe are the same

Almost same images but in SS and Adobe i do have and 100 video clips but dont sell anymore

Why happen this ? because i lost -70% on SS, earn +10% with adobe and +30% earn with DT from August

For you but look at the poll, Shutter is still double FT. And look, FT has passed IS which used to be #1. When Pond5 passes IS maybe people will wake up that they have turned to crap. In your favor I'd like to see DT pass IS just for the satisfaction of watching Getty look like the trash they have become.

Dont get fooled by the right column, IS for independent= crap! but for many exclusives takings are superb. They dont let us know that, they dont want us to know!  but I know a whole heap of IS exclusives and of these ones NONE is doing bad. IS, is all about exclisivity.
If it wasnt such a bloody hassle I would dump  my micro ( only) port with IS as an exclusive and dont have to do any uploads to various places!

For independents Istock will always play the price trump. They want to be cheaper than the other 2 rivals (Shutter and Abobe) They really dont care abour all the others. Dreamstime,Deposit,bla bla bla....a joke they don't even scratch them in the ankles.

With Istock or you are exclusive or it is barely worth it to submit. If you are independent and supply the first 6 on the list and have a contract with the medium or macro agencies (Stocksy, Getty, Westend,Offset) or even better you work with one of the big lifestyle agregators that it makes sense to stay independent, no doubt about it. But if you only contribute to micro options than look again closely at the numbers on the polls. They have been quite consistent over the years.

And about emotions....Getty is the same greedy juggernaut as all the other ones. Shutter started the subscription for low, Getty only followed, Adobe/fotolia have done similars move in the past and are also giving away creations for pennies nowadays. Don't let me start with Dreamstime Deposit Bigstock Canstock that are plain rip off "agencies" or whatever they can be called.

Yes, it is a tough world out there........
