More and more 2,80 and 5,60 video commissions :-( A bunch of old licenses (28 and 56, sometimes 70) still sold but probably the last. Video income actually divided by 10.
Dear Adobe Stock, welcome to the Istock/Shutterstock greedy family. (yes complaining, that's all we have left)

Even Pond 5 I am now getting $2 royalties. Rather than offer subscriptions they just "negotiate" a package price and regardless of what you have the clip priced at, forget it. You get what they give, subscription level peanuts through a back door way of screwing contributors once more. This is the new norm now, until it isn't.

you guys complain but thats useless.
Pull out. There's still Videohive that lets you choose your prices.
There's Creative Market, Shopify, Gumroad.
They're only doing this because you're allowing them to.
Please, don't give me the "family to feed" nonsense,
2.60$ will hardly get you a Kilogram of rice in western nations.

Video for a few cents? Don't upload video. Delete already uploaded videos.
Photo for a few cents? Don't upload photo. Delete already uploaded photos.

Actually I closed accounts with Dreamstime, Big Stock, Deposit photos and soon it will be Pond5(SS)

I'm not some looser who depends on ridiculous income from greedy stock agencies. My own shots are valuable to me and I respect my own work.
