I think if an agency that is selling AI images is seeing a sales boom, then agencies that are not selling AI content soon will be selling AI content.

and I can't help but hope you're right! :)

I don't think it's that easy.  For example, Shutterstock isn't taking AI works for 2 reasons I think.  1 is they want their own AI generator to generate AI images so that they'll keep 100% of revenue.  2 is the potential legal issue in future.  You never know if there may be massive lawsuit against AI generated images.  They don't want to risk that.

@blvdone

I prefer not to say the precise number but more than 7000

I'm sure your strategy pays off in the short term,we need to see if it pays off in the long term.

for the moment we are still at the beginning,then we will have to see when the competition increases.

However,you may be right,maybe I waste too much time,but I like to put content on sale that I would buy myself.

I also tried a month as a pro plan with Midjourney,because given the speed with which many of you upload,I thought that the outputs of Midjourney were more correct but this is not the case,90% of the contents have generative errors,until now all AI image generators have errors,and many things to improve.

Honestly, there isn't much more to edit AI generated photos other than erasing brand logos in very rare occasions.  I don't waste time tweaking extra/missing fingers or disfigured faces.  I just don't submit those bad ones and generate till I get good ones.  Time is money.  I just try to maximize my output per hour/day.  And based on the number you gave me, my portfolio is making 2x more $$ per photo.  So, no offense, but I know what I'm doing and it's working.  If your photo isn't selling short term, why can you expect them to do well in long term?  It just doesn't make sense unless you are producing seasonal materials way in advance.

And you're right about generating AI images on Midjourney.  Many of the generated images aren't usable.  It takes time to generate images that you want.  You need to work on the prompts and hope AI will give you usable images without extra/missing fingers and limbs.  That's where my time is spent regarding AI image creation.

Yeah, same here. In the beginning I was fixing quite long generative errors until I realized I loose to much time by doing this.
So instead I now first try to formulate a better prompt or search for a better Stable Diffusion model, which generates less errors.
I currently spend max. 2 minutes for retouche after upscaling.

With AI upscaler I even can automatically retouche minor errors or I'm fixing them very rough and quickly and the AI makes the rest.

So it's as you said time is money and you have to maximize it.

yes that's probably the case,I spend more time in post-production and less time on prompts,also because until I see the images in detail in Photoshop or Lightroom I can't be sure of anything.

I see 1 as much more likely,I don't think SS is concerned about legal issues.

BTW, I love generating AI images.  It's so much fun!!!  Especially when I try my own concept.  I do keyword search to see if anybody already uploaded similar theme/concept.  When I find not many are out there yet, I feel really motivated.

yes AI are addictive! :D

I agree,doing a search for missing content is always a good idea.

I still have to evaluate how this AI content goes if it can really make a difference,I still have too little to be able to make a judgement,in a couple of months,I will be able to understand much more about it,for the moment I am selling more real content,more vector lately.

It's just a common sense to try to create what's selling.  But I was trying to explain a pitfall of creating very similar images.  You got to differentiate from what's already out there in the same concept/genre.  That's my approach.  There's no copyright in concept for photo/video/images.  So, you can't own that.  Nobody owns "business theme", "Christmas theme" etc.

Also, many images on my portfolio top page are images with only 1 recent sale.  And if these don't get additional sales, they'll get pushed back to further down pages.  So, it's not that simple to guess what's really selling on somebody's portfolio.

A lot of people copy images almost one to one along with titles, etc. thats what is bothering me. Not a just a knowledge that concept of technology or Christmas theme is selling well, so they should do technology and Christmas images. (Yes, those themes sell the best, but there are millions of images of tech and Xmas that dont sell at all)
I do own a copyright to my hand drawn illustrations and I dont want them to be copied. It takes a lot of time to report it.

Yeah, I hear you.  But it has nothing to do with me.  So, good luck.

This week, numbers are good near BWE, but ranking is just usual.  Everybody else must be doing well this week.

I dropped in rank, but my sales volume is going up.

So sales are probably increasing, spring break is over.

Was wondering how many photos you have on your port. For me if I sell a file a week, I'm lucky.

I have about 10,400 photos right now.  About 4,200 are AI generated.  How many do you have?  Less than 10?

No man, around 2600 images and 500 videos. Probably because I have started recently.

If you only have 1 sale per week for 2,600 images, you aren't producing the right kind of images.  Beautiful image that nobody need won't sell.  You got to focus on market research.  Otherwise you'll be wasting time and will be massively disappointed and exhausted.

These videos may help you get a better idea.

Not gonna lie, that's pretty bad. I have currently a port of approx 700 AI images and weekly up to 10 sales, which is also pretty bad.
I have added in the beginning much crappy stuff, which I now sort out and upload new better content.

Landscapes can be very saturated already especially famous places.  I haven't had good results either.  Those can be the beautiful images that don't sell because of supply/demand balance.

I was thinking, that's because maybe I have started last year, and don't have enough views. Or something like this.

What I would do is to keyword search for similar images you have uploaded and sort by "Download" to see what's the difference between your image and the ones selling the most.  I don't think it has anything to do with you started last year.  That's too optimistic.

Some drone landscape images do sell good. Sold some couple of times. Everything with the camera, is not really good with sales for some reason.
