I have been uploading onto Fotolia for about a month now and I finally got my first sale(s).  Yay!  I was just about to forget about the other sites and just focus on SS since that was the only one that I was making any money on.

Wow congrat, I'm not upload on SS. Many people said there is no future on SS, is that right?

I'm not sure any of us can tell the future.  In seen from the ratings people have given shutterstock they are still they overall top earner.  For me they are the top earner and have been for the past 4 years.  I can't obviously say what is going to happen in the future but I have enjoyed great earnings there so far and am right now so the best I can do is focus my attention on what is earning me $$ now and what has proven to be a solid earner in the past (ie: shutterstock)

That being said, shutterstock gives new images a big boost which is why you are seeing good sales only there so far paulacobleigh.  Give it time and you will start to see your shutterstock earnings get a little lower and your other site earnings rise.

Fotolia was a slow starter for me but now things are running steady there.

Congrats and wish you many more sales!

Thanks!  I have 38 pictures in my gallery now so hopefully things will pick up.  They do tend to reject a lot more pictures than SS does, though.

I'm not sure why they would say there is no future on SS.  I got d/l's right away with them and as I get more pictures in my gallery, my sales are increasing.  I love their site.

Well, I am constantly uploading to SS, so hopefully my sales will stay steady.  In my first two months, I've gotten 2 EL's which has really boosted my income.  At the moment, they are my favorite site.  ;D

Thanks!  SS was my first site and it is doing really well.  I have gotten on with all of the other Big 6 (except SX who doesn't want the kind of pictures I take) and also BigStock.  Fotolia and DT have finally started going for me so I will include them in my focus of getting more pictures on.

from consensus, i am taking it that fotolia is a slow starter.

i am new but i have been with fotolia the longest (one month.. woo hoo  ;D ;D),
 the other sites i just uploaded a handful and got my acceptances, got me my first sale within a couple of day of publication, but none with my portfolio at fotolia after a month.

as for SS, i feel it can also be depending on what your images are too.
maybe it works for the others, and it may not work for me.
i quit SS after my first reject. i do not want to wait a month to resubmit.
also, i feel my images were not SS potentials , as they like images quite unlike the ones i make.

i like to think that we have 6 or 9 different sites to sell our images,
and SS is not the only one.

numero uno "does not impress me much" .
apologies to Shania Twain for stealing her quote... but i love her more , now that she's single...  ;D ;D ;D ;D

I wouldn't totally write off SS as they are the biggest earner.  I was fortunate to get accepted on my first try and I got sales right away.
None of the other sites have shown to be as good of earners for me and most of the other sites have such high rejection rates (except 123RF)
