Is there any place on the site where one can see how many times a specific image was sold?

But there is no way of searching for images, so if you have a lot of images it's almost useless. It also doesn't separate between different types (subscription, EL, OD etc.) of sales.

Cool! One can sort it by number of sales. Was just interested how many times my best images sold so far. Thank you for the help.

does anyone know of a script that will take [scrape] each page and write it to a file that can then be manipulated offline?   basically construct a csv that has #, caption, # downloads, keywords, date uploaded

then you could, eg, find all downloads for a given year, sort by total earned, etc, or find the download / sales stats for particular images [that info isnt shown on the indiv image page]

i've looked at userscripts.org, and the closest i've found is a script that will find pricing for a product over many websites.   the hard part [for me] is finding a way to automatically go to one page, and then automatically save that page as source and then move to the next page.  once you have the source, extracting the info is relatively easy.

A Greasemonkey script should do the trick.

I'm sure Sean could pull it off but we have to convince him first to drop exclusivity and get him into SS...  ;D

I remember reading about something called "Site Boost."  Script written by user Plrang.  Not sure it does what you need but might be worth taking a look. 
I know MikLav and others use this.

You can see your stats for your top images on this page
http://submit.shutterstock.com/stats_media.mhtml?display_column=25_a_day

or just click the other tabs on the top to see the most enhanced downloads or on demand sales etc.

that works, but first, it's hard to examine 180 pages of images, and it keeps various types of sales separate, so it's difficullt to see sales overall.  also, i'd like to be able to see what's sold best in last 6 mo, etc

i did find a free webscraper http://datatoolbar.com/   it's simple to set up but you still need to use it one page at a time.  looks like there is a market here, since most of the software i found was either $100+ per month, or $500+ for purchase  - way beyond my needs
