Pretty awful - back to about the amount I made with something like 20-25% of the images that I have now. Almost every day this month could be a weekend day there. I sure hope all the sales aren't going to Getty.

Same here, falling apart.

Maybe it's too early in a month to tell, but it seems that my earnings are keeping going down. And they looked so promising until that Getty deal...

I know that they prioritize their own earnings, but suffocating contributors with that Getty deal, the same contributors which enabled their success, is ethically a very questionable thing to do.

I wonder what will be the next "exciting news". Maybe contributor portal, which is supposed to cheer us up, but that's like somebody screwing us over and then giving us a candy (and making us wait for that candy for months). At this point, contributor portal is not just irrelevant - it's almost insulting.

9 days into the month and Dreamstime has more than twice the earnings (and it isn't like DT is on track to have a stellar month). So far every day could have been a weekend day. I don't know what it is, but something really changed there for me around the second half to end of last year and it wasn't for the better. The Getty deal would explain it. Maybe it is good for Canva, but it just seems like everything they touch gets ruined.

Earnings were very good and growing until mid 2018. Stable but still good until December. Very bad in January and February. March started even worse.

I'm sure they couldn't care less about being "ethical". But they should at least care about their own long-term survival. If they manage to turn away all of their own contributors and become a vassal of Getty, they are pushing themselves into irrelevance. Getty can decide their fate in a minute.
