If I have a big money day it seems to move more (lifetime rank) than just a day with large numbers of dls. I have nothing to prove it so it could just as easily be dls as well. Just a hunch.

Yes, I have over 100k in dls. AS seems to be shifting a lot more of late. SS volume has dropped a little but the value has decreased a lot. It almost feels like theyve lost some of the corporate clients that spend big to AS but that is purely a guess.

For the week of Nov 7, I have 6 dls and a weekly rank of 28,200th, which is a higher # (and therefore further down) than @justanotherphotographer who's had 4 sales and is ranked ~20,000th for the week (or did you include your lifetime rank instead?) but ahead of the person with 3 video dls and $68+ earnings, ranked 30,000+ meanwhile I have very low average earnings, only $4.23 for the past three days.

I confirmed these are sales from Monday-Wed, 11/7-11/9.

Will check in at the end of the week.

If there are really 465,000 contributors or even 200,000, this puts me in the top 5 or 10% for # of dls which means the average microstocker must be earning even less than I imagined, since I've always considered myself small fry (729 images, rejoined when Adobe bought Fotolia). I guess most contributors upload a few files and don't do anything else. I think at one time ss said that 80% of contributors never licensed a single image.

Busy with so many other things I haven't grown my portfolio this year, though I did upload some png files and plan to upload more.

On Adobe, you need to sort the tags by importance. Does everyone do it?

The adjustment of the weekly ranking always takes place with a time delay of one day. On Sunday, you see the weekly ranking, which is based on the numbers of the week up to and including Saturday. Since many contributors have no or only a few downloads on a Sunday, the weekly ranking on Sunday is the most realistic.

In 2019 there were nearly 465.000 AS contributors - based on a research of Robert Kneschke. I could post a link to this research but I don't know if I'm allowed to do so.
I don't know how many contributors there are now. And I don't know how many there are active.

Some rough current data:

Roughly 20,000 contributors have about 10 or more downloads per week.
Roughly 7,000 contributors have about 50 or more downloads per week.
Roughly 5,000 contributors have about 75 or more downloads per week.
Roughly 3,000 contributors have more than 100 downloads per week.

Of course, the numbers fluctuate between better and worse weeks, e.g. because of holidays or after Christmas at the end of the year.

Interesting stats, cheers!

In Robert Kneschke's analysis from 2019, it can be seen that only 261 contributors had reached the sapphire ranking (more than 100,000) at that time.

If the overall ranking is based on the download numbers, you would have had at least the overall ranking of 261 with more than 100,000 downloads at that time. You are now at 564, which would mean that the number of Saphir contributors has more than doubled since 2019.

A few numbers from February 2019:

Total downloads/position in the overall ranking

4.700 / 8.000
8.500 / 5.000
28.000 / 1.400
32.000 / 1.200
67.000 / 450
120.000 / 200

The figures also agree quite well with Robert's analysis.

Early 2019:
Weekly downloads/position in the weekly ranking

10 / 10.000
50 / 3.000
100 / 1.000
250 / 350
350 / 200
400 / 170
500 / 140

9 downloads yesterday, my weekly rank didn't change today. I always though it was earnings not downloads. Does anyone know?

I am very sure that the ranking refers to downloads and not to revenue. This would also fit with the analysis made by Robert, which is exclusively about downloads.
Moreover, the old Fotolia ranking also referred exclusively to downloads and this was initially continued at AS..

Would you be so kind as to post your weekly ranking again on Sunday evening when the week is over?


16,750th and the week hasn't been anything special. If I get some more DLs I'll try to remember to check again.


5 DLs today and my rank is now 16,800th - wait, I went down? But at least I know it's updated daily, not by the week on Sunday or Monday.

400 / 170

Well, the doubling of sapphire contributors wouldn't surprise me, but I'd say its a lot more. This year there's been a big improvement in volume... Those weekly downloads / rank are way off now. The weeks I've hit 1.5k dls in a week my rank was 120. Just wished I was at that volume all the time  ;D

Well, at least you know one fact: you know that (only) 563 contributors have sold more images than you.

Sapphire is defined as having more than 100,000 downloads. Since I don't know how many downloads you have exactly, I can't judge how many Sapphire contributors there are.
I guess around 600 to 800, but you can judge that better than I can. Because I move in the Emerald area.

1,500 per week is brilliant! And beyond my imagination!

It's beyond mine as well! Feel lucky but really appreciate what AS do, as in providing the platform for me to work from. Next year it'll be 10 years as a full time stock photographer! I think I joined FT/AS in 2014. I just know the next 10 will be just as hard  :o

At 7 dls for the week today and weekly rank has gone down to 30,600 which makes sense because average #dls/day has gone down.

Must be a wonderful feeling to make 100K downloads - and 1,500 in one day - I'm blown away!

If there are really 465,000 contributors or even 200,000, this puts me in the top 5 or 10% for # of dls which means the average microstocker must be earning even less than I imagined, since I've always considered myself small fry (729 images, rejoined when Adobe bought Fotolia). I guess most contributors upload a few files and don't do anything else. I think at one time ss said that 80% of contributors never licensed a single image.

You asked the wrong person that question. I can only dream of 1,500 downloads a week. And I don't even have the imagination for that!

The question should be addressed to HalfFull.

How do I get to see my weekly ranking?  I've changed the stats to weekly and monthly downloads but no ranking appears.  Am I missing something?

If you believe the data on the 2020 survey - and I do - this could be any other agency that's open to anyone who wants to join.

Portfolio size    Number Portfolios   Percent of Total
Only 1 image    98,088    21.20%
2 to 10    183,268    39.61%
11 to 100    111,727    24.15%

Under 100 images, 85% of the total contributors! There are many who join or start and don't follow through. Most of these people, will never reach payout. Of course there could be an exception with a small collection or wonderful, niche, stunning images, but same as the numbers for portfolio size, most will not.

Everyone with 101 images, back then, was in the top 15%. And I'd suspect that most of the people below 100, didn't suddenly wake up and start working and have added 900 new images.

My point, looking at this the other way is, only 5% of the contributors had 1,000 images or more. People can keep working, but the percentage is going to remain about the same. As more artists grow to over 1,000 and more artists join who don't, the 5% is probably still the same.

The top 15% could now be 200 or 300 images. The specific number isn't important as the other 85% are the majority and pretty much inactive.

How do I get to see my weekly ranking?  I've changed the stats to weekly and monthly downloads but no ranking appears.  Am I missing something?

Go to dashboard - in left top corner you will see Time Frame dropdown menu - change to "This week".

Also works for "all time"
