We dont know how many people share a rank.

It could be 10 000 people or more sharing the rank 1000

There are a lot of old timers with huge portfolios that never post publicly.

There are also very large Russian or Asian language stock communities.

That's not how ranking works, you can't share a rank

of course you can

you just need to have the same level of downloads

we also learned that it is based on no of downloads, not money.

so people could have a lower rank, but might be earning much more. good news for the video people

This thread is really surprising to me...

First, because lots of people are sharing their earning stats and portfolio size all of a sudden, that is unexpected...
Second, it sheds some light on how the rank is calculated (downloads + earnings).

And, I expected that top 1k ranks would earn much more, which is somewhat discouraging...  :-\
I guess top 100 is where the real money is...


Yes, the ranking is strictly based only on how many photo/image downloads, not revenue.  Video sales are totally excluded.  And yes, you need to make it to top 100 to make a living from stock photo sales imo.  That's very difficult.

If you only do Adobe then yes, but if you have well established quality ports in many places, even if income is currently going down, there still are a lot of full time stock families.

Maybe not living in central London or New York, but 1200 - 3000 dollars can feed many families. And production is also a lot cheaper, hiring models and actors is very affordable in many countries.

The full timers often also have access to some of the high end agencies where sales volume is less, but the individual sale is higher.

But most people doing stock full time have gone dark on public forums. They do keep talking in closed little groups on social media.

But this thread is helpful to give people realistic expectations. It can help to balance the screaming youtube influencers.

Stock is very hard work and often better as a hobby than a full time job.

That's not right, I upload both photos and videos, and very rarely I get photo sales there, sometimes 0 photo sales a week or even o photo sales a month. But I regularly get video sales, and my rank stay in between 15000-20000, even on the weeks when I get 0 photo sales

1700 today for weekly with 29 pages. (Cant find where is my file count?)
My downloads are getting higher than my earnings, not many sales than one dollar.

Your file count is lower left hand corner on the main dashboard. Just scroll down, and you'll probably see something like:
ALL(xxx) | Illustrations | Photos | etc, etc...

If you have 29 pages, means you probably have about 2900 files, since they list 100 items/page.

And that is no joke! 🤣

Italian artist Maurizio Cattelans controversial art piece, Comedian, made headlines back in 2019 after being sold for $120,000, a hefty price for a piece that is, quite literally, just a banana and a strip of duct tape.

Not bad for having zero talent!!  If you had a talent, you would go above top 100!!

Yeah, never doubted you for a moment.  ::)

That's not how ranking works, you can't share a rank

Cobalt is correct, ranks are brackets not precise numbers. People do share ranks.

My guess is you probably are in top 100.  People who are doing very well wouldn't want to share their stats.  I wouldn't be surprised if you are Yuri Arcurs.

For someone with no talent whatsoever  :D, your performance is and remains absolutely impressive! Congratulations on these figures - that's really very good.
I have fewer pictures in my portfolio, but I'm more than clearly behind you. May I ask where your lifetime ranking is?
I have now slipped to position 2,700 and was once at 1,100 many years ago with a much smaller portfolio. In the meantime, 1,600 contributors have overtaken me. I'm too lazy and I don't seem to have the right touch for successful files anymore.

Hey Wilm, Thanks!
I've always maintained that it's not about talent or artistry. It's all about engineering and understanding how to use tools efficiently to replicate successful outcomes. 😉

My lifetime rank is 1,360.

Yes, I know! I remember our discussions. We won't come together on this because I disagree with you - as you know. Many people have technical know-how. But aesthetically useful and marketable results are not based on technology alone. Ultimately, however, it doesn't matter, because for the pure numbers it doesn't matter whether technical or aesthetic means lead to success.

Hehe. I'll advise you to watch the same video I advised the other person, when saying "Whaaaaaaaaaaaaat?" ;)

That's a total BS saying 10,000 people sharing the rank.  No evidence whatssoever.  If 10,000 people are sharing the rank 1,000, the next rank after 1,000 is 11,000.  It's more like 10 people sharing rank 1,220.  Thus the next rank is 1,230.

You dont know that.

There are huge non english language stock groups. Perhaps 10k is an exaggeration but there are a lot more people active and successful than you see in this group. At pos 4000 it could very easily be 2000 people.

I.keep getting round number positions all the time - 4000, 3200, 3000 or even 250 etcso it is brackets of people with same or close dl numbers.

It is not supposed to be an exact total ranking system
