is it just my impression, or is Dreamstime taking a big nose dive lately for most of the contributors? I hear / read a lot of complains.

Same here, every site doing well, only Dreamstime down. they did some changing on April or May this year. then my sales taking a big nose dive.

Yeah DT is really not that great especially compared to IS and FT. SS is stable but I did not really upload for 3+ month.

Surprisingly the lack of uploading did not have a big effect on earnings for FT and IS.

IS pretty much like last month BME
FT BME by far, it even overtook IS for the first time.

I'm curious too about the graphs (and general record keeping).  Are most people using Excel?

I only use Excel for graphs. I wrote a piece of code on my server that I use to keep track of stuff.

I'm really happy that IS is now consistently beating SS in my stats - DT accounts for around 20% and so still a good earner

I'm down across the board, except at SS. Off by about 3% from last month.

I just did the math and found a 23.1% increase from last month and a 20.25% increase from previous BME.

Hi all,
quite a good month with:
# one enhanced license sold at Shutterstock
# iStockphoto and Stockxpert up, Dreamstime down
# monthly overall RPI (total earnings / average portfolio size)  is about 0,6

Ok I'm a computer idiot.  I've just managed to make a nice pie chart in Excel but how do I get it to show here?  I tried to just copy it and paste it here but that didn't work.

I took a screen shot then took it into photoshop and cut out the graph.  I'm not sure if there is a better way.

is it just my impression, or is Dreamstime taking a big nose dive lately for most of the contributors? I hear / read a lot of complains.

for me, Dreamstime has been about the same all year.  Between 8-12% of my total sales each month, with the average being 11.23% of sales.

Fractionally off a BME at IS as an exclusive

VBME (since Feb 2007)

Oct 09 --> Nov 09: +35% !!!

2nd BME (Nov 08) --> Nov 09: +20%

If the figures climb that way for the next 2 years, I have to think about a new yacht, or a golf course. Or maybe both  ;D:

Copy and paste the graph into Photoshop works well, too.

Surprisingly good for me too __ a bit below last month's BME but overall 41% higher than Nov 2008. I spent the entire month on holiday in Thailand too so no boost from new uploads.

Percentages as follows (with 2008).

IS       37 (30)
FT      22 (18)
SS      22 (29)
DT      11 (14)
StockXpert     5  (6)
Rodeo  2.2 (n/a)
BigStock     1.5 (3.6)

FT just beat SS into second place for the first time ever.

Rodeo confirmed themselves in 6th place relegating BigStock further into oblivion (and with only about half the number of images uploaded there too). I'm somewhat sceptical that BigStock can be resuscitated by SS or indeed whether it is in our interests for them to do so given the low commissions paid there.

None of the sites had BME's for me, but overall the earnings were the highest ever, despite not uploading any new content on any of the sites. My last uploads were a small batch in mid-October, so have uploaded only 20 files in 3 months, but despite this, I've had 3 overall BMEs in succession.

IS: 33%
SS: 30%
DT: 12.6%
FT: 8.4%
Alamy: 4%
BS: 3.8%
StockXpert: 2.9%
123: 1.8%
Can: 0.2%
Cres: 0.1%

Hey folks, I don't want to spoil the thinks, but besides each site daily visiting number is different that we know can affect the results, but to have a close comparison have you guys the same amount of images on all sites when comparing these graphics?

Maybe the poll posted by leaf would have some range of number of images into the portfolio and separate the results/graphics for each range reached.
