On my front page of "new images" I have now 20 pics with 0 views, except this one that's got 3 views and 1 sale: http://www.dreamstime.com/children-ready-to-race-thumb9628528.jpg

When I clicked on the keywords the buyer used, it was clear that (s)he had changed to newest first, cause the picture is nowhere to be seen on the regular search, while on newest it was no.3.

I don't know what other people should do, but I'll keep trying to improve keywords and pictures. I wouldn't mind if you all deleted all your files and gave me monopoly, but I don't really see the logic in why anybody would do that.


Well, I think I'll try to cull some of my new images to deselect them, and see if it improves my views on the latest uploads. If not, I will deselect some of those  new images that sell for me on the other site very quickly. No point to upload more if it makes it worst for me.


*gaja, give you monopoly ? of no views?  ;D
*tan,  So  new images on other site sell very quickly . Then you must have buyers watching for your new  uploads. It's indication you should upload more there. Don't ignore the chances, they don't come around often.

I've decided to not upload any more for awhile,I have 13 images waiting for review. I'll just sit back a wait.

it's June > sales start to go down it you haven't summer pictures, then came July > sales go down even if you have summer pictures, then...you wouldn't believe but it happens every year, came august and sales slow down again at an unbelieveral rate.
It's bad because no reviewers and no agencies concept can be punished for this...its just the way how advertysing-business work. It's not 9 to 5 and not Januar to December. Better you call your lawyer to make them work every day, every month like every secretary.

Ups...and not to forget: just as an idea of an humbleness rookie who never ever would like to lift his head over anyone like lisa or puravida, who are the rulers here.

I haven't had a sale at DT in almost two weeks (granted I have a tiny port.) but I'm already at BME (almost twice as much as second highest) at SS and I haven't uploaded a thing to them in almost a month.  Seems kind of backwards to me.

No, based on the info here, it's obvious that new contributors and old images of established contributors get the downloads. I was thinking of not uploading anymore as my recent images have no views, but I am getting downloads. albeit mostly subs on older images and repeat sales.
This, I shouldn't complain as a dl is still a dl regardlessly.
Instead of not uploading, I am just uploading them to the edit box, save it till maybe later to finalize and submit. Maybe by summer's end when sales slowdown ends, I will then put all these abeyance images into my portfolio. So, it's not a protest against Dreamstime, but more so, adapting my submission schedule to fit to the way it works.
