That's because everyone is done with their introductory year.

As of today's close, according to yahoo graph data, over the last 2 years, ADBE is up 62%. Coincidentally, SSTK is down 62%.  (Since ADBE announced it was buying FT, it's up 29%, vs a 51% drop in SSTK -- not as interesting as the 2 year comparison, but more relevant).

sales from microstock are like communicating vessels, i doubt your bottom line goes up

It might well be, but if customers migrate to better paying agencies (based on your communicating vessels theory) your bottom line can significantly go up.

I can only hope to see one day all iStock customers migrating to FT and SS. This could probably increase my bottom line with 15%, maybe more.

Well iStock's former customers must be going somewhere because theyseem to be deserting istock in droves.  I have not had corresponding jumps in FT or SS sales tho.

It will be nice to see some numbers, proving the IS customer loss. Maybe my wish is coming true, after all ;)

Anyway, I can confirm Laurin's observation. Obviously, this is not enough to prove a theory, but I can only wish you to be right and this trend to continue. Every $0.19 sale is a stab in my heart.

No complaints or surprises here. My sales from FT are equal to or better than SS for the 4th straight month. And, I'm seeing more credit sales higher than $.29; $.58, $.99, even $2.50 to $4.50.
With SS (unless I get the occasional $2.50 or VERY occasional $35+ SOD) it's $.36 most all the time. I used to get regular $65 SODs - but no more.
And, FT accepts more of my files, quickly, and with pretty much fair assessments.

I spoke with a rep from a local design firm, and they are planning to move to FT after their one-year commitment to SS expires this March.

Good info to have.  Anecdotal,  but still interesting.   Thanks for sharing that.

Check your numbers in a couple years. This is just the up and down of the market. Adobe is in the news, SS is leveling. Nothing has changed. Most buyers don't care how much we make. Do you care how much the person who works at McDonald's makes or Wendy's or Burger King and that makes you go there for some fast food.

Adobe is making a fine place in the market with FT and SS is going strong. Who knows, maybe IS will wake up, and change? They aren't the power business they imagine they are. Lobo is the image of IS for us and the reflection of the way they think.

All you millennials here will understand how it's all about ME attitude works for IS like it does for you.

zero talent, if your 38 cent sales are replaced with 35 cent sales you lose 3 cent per sale, which agency pays more than 38 cents on subs  of the top 8 agencies to raise your bottom line?

103.7 for SS... you just have to hover over the agency name with your cursor.

I plotted an Excel graph showing my revenue development throughout the years of both Adobe and Shutterstock. It paints a clear picture of who came out on top:

Here is the same graph, but starting with 2014.

I can also observe the AS growth following the acquisition of Fotolia.
I can also observe a decline following Stan Pavlovsky's new royalty structure.

However, in my case, the SS decline was mitigated, once I uploaded a series of videos that turned out to be in very high demand.

This is why at least for the time being, SS keeps on delivering the best performance for me.

I've notice, that while people selling photos are raving about Adobe, but as a video creator my earnings at Adobe (despite of increasing portfolio) still decrease. While on SS I'm doubling my earnings every year, mostly because of those 150-300$/video sales

Yup, the $2 video sales have been absolutely disheartening. Adobe used to be an amazing place for vidoes, but this seems to be a massive step (along with the $8 buyout for free collection) in the race to the bottom

What 150-300 dollars are you talking about. There are no such amounts on SS for a long time.

I don't mind $2 video sales, as long as I can count for more higher sales (just like on SS) but on Adobe lately, the highest sales I had was $25 (and it's very rare unfortunately...)

Well, but I still have. At least once a month I'm having $150 or higher video sale, and few $50-$70 sales. I can't remember when I had such a sale on Adobe :)
