SS - 21%
FT - 20%
DT - 8% (WMY - RDP less than 1$)
StockXpert - 6% (I opted out sub)
BigStock - 0,3% (almost dead)
Alamy RF - 0% (for the first time this year, very sad)

Hi there

Conistent rise across the board, with exception of IS - static again.

To tie in with Jonathans comments - unusually I made over $650 at Alamy last month. I am as sure as I can be it's been helped by recaptioning my portfolio, which I did a couple of months ago. I edited it very tightly, giving me a much higher score than the average alamy contributor on the ratio of views and zooms etc. Could also be that people are spending again and having pics on the first pages has led to sales.

Editorial usage in the UK - pretty hopeless, but no cause for panic yet.

Oversea sales through agents - on the rise thank goodness.

Overall - pretty encouraging if I keep putting the hours in!

I was getting alarmed in the middle of the month, but the last week turned out to be my BWE, and ended up making October my BME.  Most encouraging... my RPI for October turned out to be the same as the past several months.  I've been at this for a year, so I've been watching RPI like a hawk, fearing it will drop, but it has yet to happen.  Knock on wood!

Strong October across top 5

#1 SS
(close to BME)

#2 IS  
(close to BME)

#3 DT
(BME for # of Sales  :) but RPD is almost 1/2 of prior BME month ... lots of subscription sales  :-\ )

#4 FT
(Strong portfolio growth and growing sales)

#5 BigStock
(Nice RPDs here)

Istock was a BME for me.  DT is on a down-ward slide (but fair enough, I haven't submitted much there over the past few months).  Veer though is beginning to build some momentum:

IS-     76%
SS-    12.4%
DT-    5.4%
Veer- 3.3%
BigStock-  2.4%

Got a few sales from Fotolia as well, where I only began submitting in the middle of October.

I've got a minute portfolio (~220 images) but I had my first month of total earnings over $100.  Again this may be bupkis to many, but I'm stoked.

Since I stopped uploading pictures and started with vectors my earnings have gone from increasing linearly to what appears to be exponential, I'm sure that will level off soon but I smile every time I look at it :D

DT is down in Dls but with an RPD of over 2$ last month it has made up for it a bit. Seems to  be a very high percentage of  credit sales from the higher ranking images.
Fotolia has broken all records.  :D
Ss is making about half what it used to as new images just don't take off in the same way they used to so old ones are still strong but very little that I have uploaded in the last year has sold very well.
Istock good but not BME
123 down
BS and StockXpert about the same.

Largest disapointment: Dreamstime WMY despite 30% port increase. Too many max size sub downloads. Action: only upload downsized 21MP>4MP. Since only level 2+ images make money on DT, stop new uploads and just cash in.

+72 % more than in September...

Very good on DT, IS and Canstock....

No changes on BigStock, still low!

Overall 3rd best month ever so maybe bad days are over. I am glad that SS now only 50% of my total earnings. Top 5 would be the same if I would not have one large sale on CanStockPhoto. DT slowly growing to pass StockXpert. FT is steady but surprisingly followed very closly by IS which got BME. I do not know what can I do improve IS performance.

Code: [Select]
Oct Oct/Sep
SS 48.89% 107.69%
CanStockPhoto 12.92% 926.23%
DT 9.94% 204.13%
StockXpert 9.06% 142.45%
123RF 6.11% 66.02%
FT 4.98% 92.83%
IS 4.27% 185.12%
Veer 1.55%
BS 0.91% 400.00%
CS 0.91% 800.00%
YM 0.46%
121.40%

BME at Fotolia. In total, my earnings were nearly identical to September's. Off by less than a dollar.

The only BME for me was in terms of revenue from my blog ;)

SS: 37%
IS: 29%
DT: 16%
FT: 9.5%
StockXpert: 4.5%
BS: 3%
123: 0.3%
Canstock:0.2%
Blog income: 0.5%
Alamy: Nada

Overall income was quite steady - no BMEs, but pretty solid results all round.

BME Overall
BME: IS, 123RF, StockXpert
2nd BME: SS (one month I had 9 ELS in a day so that will be a hard month to beat, without that day this would have been BME)

FT stayed pretty much the same (although lots of rejects for images I expect to do well on all the others sites), BigStock down a bit, and DT down as well

IS: 48%
SS: 34%
123RF: 4%
StockXpert: 4%
FT: 4%
DT: 3%
BigStock: 2%

Looking forward to the time when my statistics would be considered statistics.   :(

Meanwhile, can someone please walk me thru the process of saving a screen shot????

Of note ... my RPD at DT is below a dollar for the fourth consecutive month.  Running at 44 cents as I write this.   ::)

If you're using Windows, press the <print screen> or <print> button on your keyboard (beside F12), and then paste in your image editor.

If you're using Mac, sorry I don't know.

It's the part after pressing the print screen button that has me totally lost.  I don't see anything to paste???? 
My image editor?  Are you talking about the PhotoShopElements Editor?
BTW:  I am using Windows XP.

You won't see anything to paste. Just open Photoshop and ctrl+n which will create a new document the size of your screenshot. Then ctrl+v and it will paste your screenshot into the open document.

This is really embarrassing and I apologize for doing it right in the middle of someone's thread.  That doesn't work????

I can get a blank document but not the screen print.  I tried using the Editor Menu but the "paste clipboard" option is grayed out?????

I feel like such an idiot.

I just did a quick search on google and found this. Looks like it should do the trick for you.

IS  34%
SS  21%
123RF  17% (BME 3 ELs)
DT  11%
StockXpert  5%
FT  4%
BigStock  3%
Veer  2%
PBC  1%
CanStockPhoto .5%

Overall 3rd BME. DT used to be a solid second but since the changes, they regressed backwards about 8 months. Very disappointing. Veer continues to do better every month. FT never has done well for me.
