My final word on this for the moment FT are probably fifth I presume they must have attracted a lot of photographers and rejected far more images that I thought. There is a 10,000 result ceiling in searches but fear not as in more refined searches photos will appear I saw some of my spring illustrations in "flower london" along with a whole series of graffiti photos with not a flowers in sight, do we need property release for graffiti? I have photos rejected in the past because of tagging.

How the mighty have fallen so now FT have been demoted to 5th place someday when I have teh time I will try to calculate how many images they may have based on searches that give less than 10,000 results and compare to the same search on different sites.

SS 1,864,043 (1,834,159) [1,807,250]   + 29,884
IS  1,728,000 (1,703,544) [1,685,000]  +24,456

DT   1,241,074 (1,215,487) [1,190,475]    +25,587
BigStock 1,121,000 (1,102,000) [1,084,000]   +19,000
FT  3,404,998 (3,226,856) [3,157,330]   +178,142 ???

123 800,000+
StockXpert 569,397+ 

CanStockPhoto 442,064 (434,467) [428,234] (419,573) +7,597
FP   273,600 (267,700) [261,875] (254,250) +5,900

I will be away for a few weeks so if anyone wants to take over this thread temporarily send me a site mail.

Looking at my sums after 20 days of May have elapsed this month should be the best month ever for me. Even if I don't include the funds for selling the rights for a photo at FT.

One positive note about FT they seem to have cleared their review backlog they were reviewing some last night just as I was adding the categories.

It has been mentioned before and I will mention it FT state the number of "online images".  They don't claim to have 3 million images for sale

If a submitted image is accepted, rejected, made a free image or deleted by user a thumbnail is kept so is "online"
Online to me means online and avaliable.  It is not online if they are the only ones who can see it (ie rejected and delted files).  The free image theory also doesn't cut it given the large jump this week (there cant be that many giving images away free).

Are they simply multiplying by 6 (or however many different language versions they have?)

Figures in curved brackets from last week and square brackets from a month ago

SS 2,000,270 (1,971,332) [1,864,043]  +28,938
FT  1,958,929 (1,961,129) [3,404,998] -2,200

CanStockPhoto 473,899 (469,895) [442,064] +4,004
FP   308,050 (301,275) [273,600] +6,775

Well SS broke the 2 million barrier no bells no whistles, I forget did they make a fuss of breaking 1 million.

Not sure what the next big milestone will be I suppose DT might have a decent give away for their 2 millionth image. I ma sure as soon as I buy a new mp3 player i will win one somewhere.

FT actually experienced shrinkage either miscounting or maybe their cull of old unloaded images. I am a bit concerned about this long wait to upload. Will everyone dump 1-2 weeks of images in one mammoth FTP upload one evening overloading the servers. Rather annoying as I have soe seasonal illustrations that won't get a chance to sell at this site

I noticed CanStockPhoto have celebrated three years in the business certainly one of slow performers

The shrinkage of FT database continues not sure if they are reviewing yet but they are still deleting more than they are accepting.

Here is an Article about Dreamstime Industry record in Image submissions: http://animators.digitalmedianet.com/articles/viewarticle.jsp?id=160314
Apparently they seem to have grown faster then SS in June.. although the time when you fintastique submitted exact numbers of weekly additions they had a slower growth.. Amazing how fast they have grown. And it seems to be right if you look at the numbers of May 21 to July 9th. In this period DT had a faster growth than SS. Thanx for the numbers fintastique!

Yep there were no accurate figures for the first half of June as I was out of internet access  :-[

A pity a few of the sites aren't inspired by some of their features such as autopopulate.

I had four $4 eps file sales at DT yesterday   ;D a pity the other sites don't charge as much.

So FT should be the biggest again next week?? Or at least the week after.

Are people still disputing their numbers or do they appear correct after the big drop that came with v2?

« Reply #116 on: July 30, 2007, 10:54 »

I am sure they are still counting all the rejected images.  A lot of people haven't been uploading to them recently, as the V2 still has problems, so I can't see how they can have all those uploads, unless they count all the rejected images as well.
