Prices have gone up a lot since I started in 2006 and buyers haven't been driven away. Last month was my best so far. I am sure some want to pay less but I also think the vast majority are very happy paying much less than they used to with the traditional sites. Nobody can predict the future, several people have predicted a fall in the microstock market since I started and so far they have all been wrong. Perhaps it will happen one day but I am not going to waste time worrying about it. The traditional sites have had problems but the big ones are still going, that means that there are still lots of buyers that are prepared to pay a good price for the right image. Hopefully microstock sites will let us price some images higher in the future.
