Low quality & simple old illustrations (more than 2~3 yrs old) selling very well on DT. But new high quality images not even getting views sometimes. (my portfolio is with 2900 illustrations and 40000+ sales. 98% of the sales are from old images every month) How about your experience.?

Zalee, you are doing really well compared to me. I joined DT in January 2016. I have 219 images and only 2 sales. My images don't even show up in searches. When I searched for pine, pine cone and cinnamon start all sorts of images came up but not mine even though other images didn't have a cinnamon star. I am doing very well on SS. My food images don't sell. What kind of images do you take that you sold so well on DT? I search for my images, scroll through 20 pages or more and they are nowhere. They do show up when I search on other websites.

New files/uploads have never sold well at DT. I really don't know what they are playing at but how much brains does it take to understand that new files are our livelihood for tomorrow.

Its their livelihood they are interested not ours...not really selling much of any age at DT seems to be flatlining to me.

Theoretically but unless buyers are crying out for new and innovative images then not really when they have around 50m images there

I'm sorry, I've only just seen this. Well 25 is not many but it really varies as I have a bit of everything in my port. I've sold some editorial, some people, even nature such as butterflies and flowers and also some travel. I'm not sure why you can't find your images, if I put my actual title in I can usually find them.

dreamstime is falling down. i had near 120 dollar every month with less than 2500 images...now with more than 3800  i collect what 8 dollar?
nothing sell new old medium old....i suspect most of big earners did their number like me between 2006-2013..last two years  dreamstime is not selling nothing.
and you can see easily in the column of pool results...dreamstime was 3 now is even behind 123

Come on dude, keep it accurate... you're not selling nothing. Or 'anything', as the case may be. What evidence do you have to show that Dreamstime is not selling nothing? You sales figures don't reflect Dreamstime's as a whole.

you have 11 sales in dreamstime...are you serious?

i have more than 8000 sales...and i'm not shooting at all content stock oriented..mostly travel and editorial...
last two year in dreamstime are outrageous. worst agency by far...and it was a solid 3 place fro me...idf it has slipped in middle tier there is something going on...it was the 3 agency for most.

How does the number of sales I've had at Dreamstime, have anything to do with my ability to point out that... just because you've had a drop in sales.... doesn't mean that Dreamstime are going out of business?

The fact you do think it makes a difference, makes me put even less stock in your opinion.

Thats true but Looking at the poll on the right which is probably the best evidence we've got I remember DT being top tier now they are near the bottom of the middle tier. Sadly that's my experience I always liked them and they seemed to sell what I thought of as my "better" images

strangely yesterday had 26 sales in one day..mostly 0,38, all from a brazil travel batch, and two bigger for 14 dollar...all after i complaint:)

i'm not saying dreamstime will go out of business. i'm just pointing out my and other experience.
it was solid third for many now has slipped in the middle tier near low earners.
