Everybody has those cycles of good and poor days, or weeks, or months. I guess every agency has it's own cycles. I am doing good on DT right now. Actually DT was always good for me, but last few weeks is really good

Always good?

The maximum number of downloads you had on a photo is 11. You call that good? You must be joking.

DT is a joke.


Of course I am satisfied with DT. I have 230 files and 140 downloads. I think it's good. Actually it's much better than you :)
Here is your statistics comparing to mine:

e-person

Uploaded files:     226
Total sales: 106
Downloads per image: 0.47

and here is mine

whitechild

Uploaded files:     230
Total sales: 140
Downloads per image: 0.61

So, I have 1,3 times bigger DL's/image than you. Which means, buyers on DT like my images more than yours. And of course...DT is not a joke. Look on the right. You see those small red an green arrows on the right side? Well, that is a poll. And you can see there that DT is on th second place after SS.... ;) :D

different sites work better or worse for different people, depending on your portfolio.  personally dt is my #2 and while it is not growing as fast as fotolia or earning close to istock, it is a reasonably consistent and realiable earner.

with there pricing structure, images get more expensive as they have more downloads, so sales for these images slow down but the amount you get increases (I have images that cost 5 credits for extrasmall size), it also means people looking to save money will go to other images which is both good (if they go to your others) and bad (if they dont :))

there search engine ranking also considers your portfolio size, approval rate, searched words in the title and description (unless it has changed)

I'm on for three months now... I only got $1.85.... DS is far behind....
Looking at your DT you have 100 uploads with 15 being this month. It is all about quantity and more return. Keep uploading every month to have fresh material and you will see a vast difference. (I dont get to upload like I would like) DT is good to me and I believe i only have around 930 accepted images. I get a payout aprox. every other month or so. Sometimes I let it sit after I could get a payout till I need the money so it can keep getting bigger.
DT is a great agency.
