Seems to me that FP is a waste of time.
Hopefully one day it won't be.

I just went with FP a few weeks ago, only have a handful of pix there.   I haven't noticed so many views...  However, I was pleased to see everyone of my pictures show up on page one of multiple pages of the subjects. 
   I will continue to upload there, understanding that sales will not be typical of microsites.  Then again, when/if  I make any, they'll be nicer sales.
    Price-wise,  I went with the advice I received here,  all priced at $4.00 with sizing options.. I've got one pic priced higher.  I like the shot, if someone else likes it, maybe they'll pay the extra bucks.  If not, no loss to me.  Heck, truth is, it's selling for a quarter elsewhere....   now I think I sound like I'm 'whoring' my pix.......       :D

Heh...

featurepics is a strange ship for me. One month of 560 photos online an nothing. And now - over night - suddenly 6 sales at once. Time to upload the rest of my photos ;-)

All the best,
Michael

Hmm...maybe my tactics are wrong, I'm selling all photos for 1 USD there ;-)

I seem to sell 2 a month there regardless of price. I've started raising prices to see what the market will bear. I'd like to use them as more of an outlet for higher priced images, but there isn't enough volume to get a sense of what sells there.

In my case was a small version of a US$60 image.

I've priced mine mostly at $8 with resize option. It's been averaging out to a little more than one sale a month. On the upside, zero rejections and painless uploads means slow sales don't bother me.

Hi all,

I've now changed my price from 1 USD to 5 USD without the resize option. I figure that if a company wants my image, then it doesn't care much if they pay 1 or 5 USD (it's both peanuts for them). I've also removed the resize option due to the same conclusion.

Let's see how it works.

All the best,
Michael

I got an email a few days ago from the site admin about a buyer interested in one if my illustrations but with another color.  I promptly made a new version as requested.  Today it was purchased (I suppose by the requestor) as an EL, paying me US$16.63. 

So right now FP jumped to the 4th position this month, a few centes behind StockXpert.  Of course, it can't be yet seen as a trend, but it's quite nice, isn't it?  :)

Regards,
Adelaide

since 2 months and 0 downloads..!
Same pics in SS, IS, BS, DT, 123, have made almost 1000 ds!
i have asking them to delete my portfolio and receve the following email:

"The Images that have been here at least 90 days or more will be deleted immediately
Remaining images will be deleted autmatically as soon  as the 90 day holding period elapses.
You account will be closed when the last image is deleted."

So i have to wait a little, but ofcource i will not upload any pic.

Received my first payout from FP. Not the fastest sites in terms of sales, but one of the easiest to upload, and friendly, responsive owners.

I'll keep uploading to them  ;)

cheers.

Still not many sales with FP but I am sticking with them.  They did make more for me than lucky oliver last month and I like being able to set my own prices.

On my way to a second payout in a year. Sells 7x as much as LO, where I started at the same time. My shots are 5$-3$, depending on size, so as to make the lowest size around 1.2$.

I love the site since it's one for photographers, and it gives you the most freedom in content and price setting. FP is unlike all other MS sites. I use FP as the engine on my own site, to limit my bandwidth and to avoid adding a cart. Got good results with that. In short, it's a poor man's Photoshelter.

I repriced all to $2 about 6 weeks ago after looking at their stats page and seeing the spikes at $2 and $5

http://www.featurepics.com/Editorial/Stock-Image-Price-Statistic.aspx

since doing so my sales are 2x luckyO and marginally more than crestock & canstock for the same period (but that isn't saying much :):)

I also just found their sales by category page

http://www.featurepics.com/stat/soldimagesfromcategories.aspx

you can see cool stuff and use it to work out that they sell more shots of adult women than they do of hedgehogs :):):)

I was just wondering about the Featurepics watermark. Some of the other people's photos have a big watermark in the middle ( a greek F ), while mine only has a small text in the bottom.
Does anyone know if there is an option to choose what kind of watermark you want?
Thanks.

iahulbak,

I remember this was an issue long ago, when I started there.  As far as I can remember, all previous images were changed automatically, but I'm not quite sure.

Email their support, they're quite fast and helpful.

Adelaide

I have had 6 sales in the last 13 days now. Much higher than my normal average and for around $3.5 a sale.

Hope this improvement continues.

More sales this month, FP had definitely improved for me.  They are still a low earner but now I am pleased I uploaded there.
