After terrible first couple of weeks turning out OK for a July. SS quite poor but adobe making up for it to some extent and even Dreamtimes--dreading returned sales. RF123 looking like its gone off the cliff. If IS turns out OK will better than  last July. In today's climate not getting worse is a reasonable result I reckon ;-).

i know this would be better posted in the infamous thread shutter stock controlling royalty scheme but i post here...

checking now....i have the exact dollar so far from subscription compared to last year...the exact. on demand is plus 2 %...luckily what makes a good fiference are sod plus 150% and video, despite only 75 video i managed to earn more than 100 dollar selling 5 videos. i thin i should focus more on this. anyway the exact amount of subs...ouch...but people seems to not believe in any control.

SS - worst month since Sep 2007.

DT - OK at beginning of month, but totally flat by mid-month, so below average.

Others - lower than average.

SS within $2 of last month
Adobe within $0.50 of last month

The others don't bear mentioning as they provided $5 to $10 a piece.

Pretty solid July for me.
After steadily declining sales all through 2017, sales have been up for me at Shutterstock since January.
Not quite what they were in 2016, but getting closer.

I'm pretty sure the entire US sleeps off their hangover from the 4th clear until August. Don't worry fam, it'll be a terrible August too and we can have a new thread.

Solid month, uploaded some 800 images and 100 clips. Not expecting much in these quiet weeks but if it stays like this in Sept/Oct/Nov, I'll be worried.

Surprisingly I'm 20% up on July 2017 and 25% up on June 2018 revenues.
No improvement for SS, but good month at AS, AL and P5.
123RF, DT, CS slowly dying. Have deleted 500px ( because now Getty ) and GL accounts.

Truly terrible.
SS down by a fair amount.
Canva, Canstock, Dreamstime all hugely down.
Others dead.
Only one site rescued the situation a bit. Unless, of course, something amazing has been happening at IS...... ::)

You can track downloads to date and draw an assumption from there.

Decent month on the video side, nothing amazing but solid with no huge drops.
