Thanks Sharply, :)
I won't do so well proportionately when I get the rest of my portfolio up because the ones that I have up are my best selllers on other sites.
I prefer to remain anonymous here as  I can be more open about what I say here than I can on the forums of the places that I upload to. Also if I do well anywhere I can give figures on various threads without seeming like I'm showing off as there would be no point in showing off if nobody knows who I am (except Sharply)  :)

@ smithore,  The problems that you are having on BS are the same as I am having at Crestock, 50c in a month and I'm sure that there are others making money there. Maybe some portfolios are more suited to one site than another. Good luck anyway.

Bigstock is OK, with ocassional payouts. Not slow enough to quit spending time there.

BS used to do better than FT for me (which isn't saying much), but I seem to have somehow vanished.  Is it just me, or is it an extremely bad month at Bigstock? 

Did the price change hurt them?  I had a pitiful December there too, and wasn't that when the new price kicked in.  Price change hasn't appeared to hurt Istock!

It has been an average month for me with BS.  The price change doesn't seem to have made a difference.  I do much better there than with 123rf.

December was not good there (but really nowhere else either). January has rebounded pretty well (2 - 3 dl's a day) with the increased commisions.

Since I started this thread I have 12 DL. Not many but the pay is better than other agencies.

The number of visitors is frighten low but they are buyers.

I like BigStock style and I hope they keeps moving up. Just maybe the cheap agencies will have start paying better.

I like BigStock but sales have tanked to where I'm considering not uploading anymore.

Definitely not a great seller, but for this month, it is doing better than Istock!  $9 on BigStock whereas I have only had $3 on IS!  I don't think I am uploading the right images to Istock, but at 15 a week, I am working slowly through the hundreds of images I already have on all the other sites, so maybe I will come across something that will sell eventually!   ::)

After having my first sale at BigStock in December, I followed that up with ZERO sales for all of January. I closed out January with 74 approved images at BigStock with another 13 pending.

In contrast to BigStock for January ... I had Best Month Evers (BMEs) at:
 DT       (32 images)
 FT        (32 images)
 123rf (115 images)

Bigstock does ok for me, I like the low payout as well. The site is an easy upload with ok returns.

Last four days, my BS downloads have suddently doubled (or trippled on one day) compared to my usual.  Thursday, I made almos twice as much on BS than IS (usually the other way around).

Anybody else, or am I just experiencing a fluke?

Funny, my sales dropped on BigStock on Thursday and Fri.  Could be a search engine tweak or just ebb and flow.

always good for a couple of payouts a month...accept the majority of my submissions. I've even purchased images from them that I couldn't find elsewhere.

BigStock is a slow but steady earner for me... maybe my #4 overall.

slow but steady. sad truth is, all sales totaled on all my other agencies together, do not equal what I do on either SS or IS.  Go figure.

This is true for all but the elite.

Earnings from DT only begin to count for something when you have a lot of level 3/4/5 images. Once you hit Emerald level (10k+ sales) on FT you can significantly raise your pricing. Until you reach those levels you'll have to be satisfied with three-figure monthly earnings from those agencies. It's a fair guess that only the supra-elite are pulling four-figure dollar amounts from any of the other places just yet.

I hear ya, sharply_done.....i've got a loooooooooooooooong way to go then...  :D

With the my new 5D I will be focusing on expanding my Alamy 'folio. Hopefully, the bucks will pick up there.   8)=tom

for me it isn't doing great, but it's ok. Similar to Fotolia and to 123rf. Much better than crestock or featurepics (or LO).

1) Irfanview does not re-save the photo. Adding keywords and data is non-destructive. You can change it over and over and it does nothing to the photo.

2) No matter what you use, keyword/metadata should be done LAST. Otherwise it can possibly get lost or truncated.

3) IrfanView is Free!  ;D (you are allowed to send money if you want)
