I don't know what happened, but my sales on Fotolia were 0 in January, even after uploading more than 100 pictures! I used to sell at least a few pictures a week even when I had less than 50 pics online.

How Fotolia usually works? Which pictures have a tendency to sell better, old or new files? I want to know if I should stop hoping or not. Among those 100 pictures that I uploaded in January were some of my best ones...

Lately I sell 60 - 70% new images.  My old best sellers got completely killed off.  I usually find that one or two from each new session take off.

So if my pictures won't sell at all for let's say 2 months, I should stop hoping?  :(

My old files sells good in Fotolia and I think hundreds of images is a small amount to draw conclusions about the sales potential. It is also appropriate to look at longer periods such as year(s).

When you upload at least several thousand images and look back at the past year You will have a more realistic view of Fotolia's ability to sell.

Of course it is very important what kind of portfolio You have...

I know my portfolio is too small to draw conclusions, but I can't help notice that I used to have constant sales with about 40 pics online, and now I have 0 sales with more than 200! And most of those pictures sell well on other websites. I don't know what happened but I guess I can still hope if you say your old files are still selling. Thank you for the answer!

I've noticed that my best-sellers are the ones that have sold before. The ones with 0 downloads hardly get noticed.
Example: one of my images has sold more than 50 times, even though it's not a particularly popular image elsewhere. The second-best image in my Fotolia portfolio has sold only 20 times, while the others were downloaded less than 10 times.
