4 sales could make 25% of $$ total for a newbie.

I would be interested to know how many files you have managed to upload on other sites in those 2 weeks, and what is the damage over Jan 2013.

Feb 2013 included 14 days of independence -  royalties are down 49% compared to Feb 2012, downloads up 12%

Managed about 300 files on FT and SS  about 380 on DT, GL and 123 about 100 on Alamy, royalties only 3% down on Jan 2013

Overall:

2% increase on January 2013.
29% increase on February 2012.

Shutterstock, iStock and 123RF showed increases on last month (and last year).  FT and DT were both down from last month, but up from last year.

I was about dead even with January 2013.  However, not happy to see I am 20% down on last February. 

I seem to have been down around 20% on the same month the prior year each month for nearly a year now.  Not a welcome trend....  :'(

I've only been truly active for two months, but my February iStock earnings were twice that of January's. (Portfolio size increased by 1/3 too.)

Even with February 2012 on total numbers but half what I made in January, and I'm only even with last year's total stock photo sales due to sales on Alamy - microstock sales are down across the board 30-50% from February 2012. DT inched up a tad from January but is down from last year.

Overall my stock photo sales are up 33% over this time last year, thanks to slow but steady growth on Alamy despite the lower commission and a strong January at SS. March is starting strong so keeping my fingers crossed that it will keep up.

I added a lot of new work in in the past couple of weeks (relatively speaking since my portfolio is small-158 at SS; 600+ at Alamy) so hoping that will pay off. I deleted half of the 30 photos I had on iStock so it's amazing I had any sales there at all.

Decent month - up by 20% from January (but we are talking low numbers anyways).
SS provided almost 50% of my monthly income, FT and DT shared the rest at almost equal shares and the little rest left (less than 10%) came from 123rf. Highest RPD was accomplished at DT, but highest RPI at SS. FT had the strongest earnings increase compared to January (though it is still way below last January).

This set of graphs reminded me to complete my report on earnings! I've put it up now on my blog:
http://www.backyardsilver.com/2013/03/earnings-from-stock-photography-in-february-2013/, but here are the main graphs. As I reported earlier in this thread, I didn't like my results in February very much. A big drop from $2200 to $1580 - far more than the days of the month could cause. Here is the main graph showing earnings over time:


To give you some scale, here is a picture of current images online on the main sites. Not much change during February as I had a bit of a break from keywording and uploading:


Finally, a percentage of earnings from each site graph - I'm sure there is a message in there somewhere, but I'm still looking!

Leaf, can images be auto scaled to screen size so that we dont have to scroll left right?

After January being a BME, Feb was a let down. Basically made my monthly average, but no increase, despite adding new images.

Standouts were SS, DP improved for a BME, FT a BME and PD steady. Most others were average or below.

Here's hoping for a much better March! :)
