im a longtime contributor at
Shutterstock, dreamstime, deposit, fotolia, istock/getty, canstock, 123rf, alma

and like many of us long time contributors I've seen the fall of microstock compared to years ago.  DT, Depoits and Canstock barely produce pocket change for me these days.  Shutterstock crashed but I still have many old photos that sell regularly enough to make decent money. 
I did a google search of 'stock images' and was surprised to see DT doesn't even come up on the search.  I do see many newer sites that I don't contribute to -
Pexels, Upsplash, Canva.  wondering if these new sites are producing anything exciting.
and i do mean exciting...lol

I think you'll find the first two on your newer sites list do produce some exciting things, however revenue won't be one of them. Believe it or not those two are sites where people give their stuff away. FOR FREE. That is exciting.

One beat does not a pulse make.  Stocksy and Istock made the same claim do you have graphs for them too?

Not Stocksy. I do have iStock but I'm waiting for the individual sales to be updated in Microstockr. It didn't even show a bump in June though - and July results are worse.
