Not any more. I can only see statistics on the dashboard, a miserable graph with "dark black"and "light black" bars, not even color.

Is view count gone too, I don't see it anywhere.

Instead of updating the upload page (editing method), they destroyed those few good features they had.

DT has "improved" the pages showing recent sales and whole portfolio with sales (the online-files page) and it's a broken trainwreck.

Theoretically you can sort by number of downloads, but that starts with zero download files and if you go to the next page it reverts to sorting by file ID. By hand-editing the URL I was able to see the list sorted by downloads, but that's a faff.

Putting all the information off to the left in the recent sales list makes it really hard to quickly scan. Perhaps whoever designed the Shutterstock dashboard moved over to DT 'cause they are both useless functionally even if they look more up-to-date visually.

The only reason it hardly matters is that DT sales are so crappy I only take a look once a week or so :)

"rearranging Deckchairs on the Titanic" or "Fiddling while Rome Burns" are two phrases that come to mind.

I do wonder if these redesigns of the interface is done to hide the lack of sales. Both SS and DT seem to have come up with maybe prettier but way less useful new "improved" designs.

As far as I can tell there is no way that an actual user was consulted in these redesigns - or if they were consulted they ignored their input.

IT people have to show the are doing something...spending time working on the resilience and reliability of the basic applications is difficult and boring with nothing to show the board. An IT student can design a new front end in an afternoon..and it looks like they did...only it was a failed student ;-).

Let's be honest, the previous interface wasn't that good either with all those icons. I mean, it looked like some kiddie chatroom website from 2002:

That is true but they didn't improve anything, they took away some features and put nothing in place.
I hate their editing system, editing images one by one in the order they impose it instead of batch editing at least categories.
I shoot mainly food, I could choose the category for all images at once, if they would let me.

They still have this page, although the link is fairly well hidden and at some point it will probably stop working.
